Brooklyn Academy

Mr Metaphor, Pumpkinhead, and Block McCloud make up the Park Slope Brooklyn crew, better known as Brooklyn Academy.

Peep the single feat. Jean Grae 'Raise Your Hands" from their forthcoming album "Bored of Education" out September 2.

In a small world story, the day I moved to New York, early January 2001, I stayed up all day on pure energy exploring and looking for a job. By 6 o'clock I was walking down 6th ave. when I see Pumpkinhead getting let out of a car. I catch up to him, telling him I had just seen he and the crew perform at the Comfort Zone in Toronto a few weeks earlier. He remembered the show and asked me what I was doing that night, "nothing" I responded, then he asked me if I wanted to go to the Lime light, which I didn't realize we were standing in front of. I said ya and we rolled passed the door man and the cover, Pumpkinhead cooling him out by saying I was with him. As soon as we got in he went his own way, but it was a cool thing to do for a fan.
(Good thing I still had half a fifth of Silent Sam in my knapsack, drinks were a mint, word.)
