Paul Bunyan I can't believe I slept on this record. Sammus is extremely versatile, whether it's behind the boards producing original beats or spit dope verses. She's got my attention. The track "A Woman" speaks the truth about how guys run game on picking up girls but, flake out in the presence of a woman. An empowering song for the ladies. Good message, nice flow. Favorite track: A Woman.

Jez Collins One of my favourite albums of 2012, a serious new talent in the hip hop firmament, great delivery and a political (small p) lyrical content. Good for getting you up or for chilling to, and that is a great combination! Favorite track: A Woman.

M’other Brain is a 13-track audio game that depicts the epic story of Sammus, the upstate-NY scholar, former teacher, intellectual bounty hunter, producer, rapper and visual artist in search of M’other Brain. This experience takes you through the twisted, cavernous tunnels of M’other Brain’s hideaway, where Sammus must battle everything from monsters to her own insecurities. Grab your power glove, some good headphones and close your eyes. You are now entering M’other Brain's world.
