Biography

BROOKLYN, born Jamie Flamand is the newest member and co-owner of the most talented and fastest up and coming record label in Canada. Born and raised in Winnipeg's brooklands area where he got his nickname, he was always hanging with the older crowd with a mindset beyond his years. This may have brought him down the wrong path early and defiantly seen things as a boy that no man never should.

This may have thrown a weaker man down the same old path of jail and a life of crime but in summer 2004 after being released from incarceration he found the mic and let out the only way he knew how, in rhymes. Bringing truth in every word and putting it in ways no one else could sets him apart from anyone in the industry. He reflects his life into the music, mind, body and soul, and does not shy away from who he is as a man. The kid has more passion and fire than a suicide bomber. His ability to change his style or flow, ranks him among some of the best in hip-hop today... Anywhere in the world.

Brooklyns lyrics lead you down a path most people steer away from. With his style on and off beats, Brooklyn is definitely a step above most competition. Originally stepping into Winnipeg's hip-hop scene with 187 records, Brooklyn quickly started working on his own record label Westbrook Records. Shortly after, with the quick success of Westbrook records he began collaborating with Heatbag. After a quick friendship, Heatbag Records welcomed Westbrook records and Brooklyn to the family, which in turn united CTL, Westbrook, Peg town, Chilly City, Skelpa Squad, Wab Kinew along with many others.

Taking his newly found family to new levels in his music career with his first solo release titled "Mind Of A Heatbag" the full LP is 21 tracks long with features from Heatbag recording artists, Charlie Fettah, Jon-C, Bubblz, Ladee Seduction And CTL Records Young Kidd as well as many more. Brooklyn's first single from the album, Mind of a Heatbag, "Bad Ass Shorty" featuring Heatbag heavy weights Charlie Fettah and Jon-C.has been buzzing with numerous youtube, and MySpace hits, along with Winnipeg's top radio station plays. His raspy voice and his musical talent have JA Rule fans doing the double look. The only way this guy is heading is up so pay close attention to the names Brooklyn Westbrook and Heatbag as the newest and fastest up and coming artist.
