His review articles are read by the masses of fans, radio personalities, co-journalists and music enthusiasts seeking a true gem in the ruff. At the end of the year one extraordinary artist will bestow the honor of being held the "Kool male artist of the year."

This year, states Brown, "it's time to shine the spotlight on the hip-hop world that is burgeoning on MySpace. As mix CD's are passed out at car shows, clubs, and barbershops; and brothas & sistas are still opening up their car trunks in hopes of getting their lyrics and beats to catch fire. MySpace offers this web-savvy generation of hip-hoppers a new outlet to be on the grind." That's where his quest to discover this one unheralded artist to reward this crowning achievement begins.

"I found Rayedan (pronounced Ray-Dan) early in my quest to mine the best unsigned musical artist in this vast online community," says the notable entertainment journalist. " He was actually referred to me by my twenty-something year old daughter. I took her advice and looked up, Rayedan, Move Like a Snake Do. At first I thought of Samuel L Jackson's movie, Snakes on a Plane and laughed," said Brown. "Then I actually hit http://www.MySpace.com/Rayedan and BOOM. The beat instantly had my head bobbin."

Rayedans' tenure as "Kool artist of the week" was one filled with true enthusiasm! The rampant buzz and comments life by readers made his selection as "Kool male artist of the year" an easy choose. Considering the stiff competition, this was nothing short of a monumental task.

Brown continues to write, "Rayedan's voice comes through articulate, passionate, and commanding. He demands the subject of his rant to do what she can't help but to do," which is to "shake something and make it move like a snake do". He goes on to say, "Just picture this lovely dime-piece seductively slithering to this rhythmic beat which features the magic flute of a snake charmer from Mumbai. Rayedan and Move Like a Snake Do have mass appeal without being soft. A music video and a remix by a hip-hop super-producer would solidify his song as one to get any party krunk!"

Kool Brothers' article garnered a genuine excitement for Rayedan and his music. In review of the article, music lovers from around the globe became engulfed with his artistry. The article gave readers a portal into the world of hip-hop that's most times overlooked by the masses. This linkage opens the eyes, or for better words ears of the countless readers to a selected few well deserving artist.
