Browns Crew generate real heat on their love-struck new single 'ETA'

Every week, 88Nine brings you a new track from a Milwaukee artist. They send it to us. We post it here. You hear it before everyone else.

For this week's premiere, we've got the latest from one of the city's most dependable acts, the Latin hip-hop duo Browns Crew. You can stream and read about their love-struck new single "ETA" below.

Browns Crew - "ETA"

Artists' statement

The title of the track "ETA" stands for Esperando Tu Amor (waiting for your love). But it also works nicely since ETA in English stands for 'estimated time of arrival,' which also aligns and works well with 'waiting for your love.'

Browns Crew is a Latin hip-hop duo comprised of El Sebas and Cristo Paz, two emcees whose music is influenced by their culture and experience as Mexican Americans. They share their visions and experiences in English and Spanish and are known for infusing Caribbean sounds into their live performances.Last summer we were sitting out in my yard doing a little bit of strategic planning and regrouping since we had not been creating much during the first part of the pandemic and the uprisings for Black Lives.

We went back and forth playing some tracks for eachother to see what we might want to work together on and write to. Sebas reluctantly said, "I got this one last beat, but I don't know if you're gonna like it". He played it for me and I was OBSESSED. He spit his verse and what he had for the hook and I started freestyling to it. Some time later we were able to lock in with AQ at the Hitshop to lace up the track and now we can bring you this fire. We have more releases on the way this summer and some exciting live shows as well.
