Brandon Savone was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. He previously lived in the 9th ward but then moved to Harvey, Louisiana which is located on the Westbank. Brandon has been writing music and poetry since when he was about 15 years old; that’s roughly five years ago. However, Brandon started to take his music more seriously about a couple of months ago.
Brandon Savone originally recorded most of his songs on his Macbook Pro (thus the title MacBook Daze of his upcoming mixtape), but in order to have more studio quality music, he now records in Shreveport, Louisiana with Producer BJBEATZ. Brandon writes all his own lyrics.
We recently caught up with some tracks to be included on the MacBook Daze Mixtape and the impression is that Brandon Savone has come with the intention of spitting heat, and he has done that throughout the songs on show here. There isn’t one track where he doesn’t give his all lyrically, and that is a very rare thing in today’s rap game, where just about everyone is focused solely on how they say something, as opposed to what they are saying.

Brandon is telling stories and not only that; he is actually putting depth into his stories and carries that concept throughout his songs. To top it all off, he backs it up with sound effects and samples that instantaneously makes his story telling more interesting and keeps the listener hooked for the whole listen.
Moreover, his beats fit his lyrics, his voice and flow. Together with Producer BJBEATZ, he didn’t just pick the hottest, catchiest beats and spit some garbage over them; he picked beats that compliment his voice and flow perfectly. Again, this is something relatively non-existent among most modern rappers, who go more for the hype than the truth.
Standout tracks run thick and fast in Brandon’s collection. My all-out favorites being: “Please (With Me)”, “Medicine For Pain” and “Envy”. Brandon Savone is a rap machine, he hops around with his rhymes and bounces from subject to subject to give you the full picture. Also he picks the perfect production beats, staying with the soulful sound that true hip hop heads can feel.
I only touched on a few tracks, but rest assured, the MacBook Daze mixtape promises to be nearly flawless. Everything sounds appealing and profound. If you’re not familiar with Brandon Savone, let these songs be your gateway. It will broaden your view of what independent hip hop in the new millennium, can really achieve.
Bottom line, this is a flat-out awesome introduction to a new artist who has come here to stay.
