A Landover, Maryland native, Brown played an integral part in ushering the Washington, D.C.-area music scene to the masses. CNN199 is a Brussels-based Hip Hop crew of DJs, emcees, and graffiti writers that has been making music for more than 20 years. CNN199 performs, makes murals, and leads workshops for festivals, community centers, and schools in Belgium and Morocco.
