The Pharcyde’s Bootie Brown Nominated for Grammy & Brit Awards for Gorillaz Collaboration

Bootie Brown goes for one-two combo with Grammy and Brit Award Nominations

(Brooklyn, NY February 6 2006) 16 years after founding one of rap’s most
influential groups, Bootie Brown remains a force to be reckoned with. The
Los Angeles rapper, best known for his work with legendary group The
Pharcyde, has received Grammy and Brit Award nominations for his performance
on the Gorillaz song “Clint Eastwood.”

The two nominations cap a whirlwind year for Brown, who has been
crisscrossing the globe after collaborating with Gorillaz on their
critically acclaimed sophomore release, “Demon Days.” After recording in Los
Angeles with producer Danger Mouse, shooting the music video in the middle
of the Namibian Desert, and performing 5 sold-out shows with Gorillaz in
Manchester, Brown says the experience has given him a new outlook on music.
“The record has really shown me how much music can transcend borders and
genres. I’ve had people from all over the globe, from punks to hardcore
hip-hop heads come up to me and tell me how much they enjoyed my track on
Demon Days. ” Brown also feels the project provided new impetus for his
career. “It’s definitely made me work harder. I feel reinvigorated and
primed to put this energy into my work with Imani and The Pharcyde.”

Brown’s nomination for “Best Urban/Alternative Performance” will be decided
at the 48th annual Grammy Awards on February 8th in Los Angeles. He will
then perform live with Gorillaz in London on February 16th at the Brit
Awards, the UK’s equivalent of the Grammy’s.
