SAN DIEGO – The San Diego streetwear store, 5 & A Dime, at 8th and G Streets in downtown San Diego, presents Brother Nature,a hip hop duo that consists of Bam Circa 86′ and Real J.Wallace. Both men are native San Diegans and Grossmont College students. They have come together to share a nostalgic look back at their childhood on the debut release entitled Fresh Squeezed Lemonade Mixtape.

The theme for this free download is making the best out of a bad situation, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” The Lemonade Mixtape is the prelude to their up-and-coming LP produced by Rob Viktum called A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which will be released through 5 & A Dime as well. The single for both the mixtape and the album is entitled “Mama’s Lemonade”, which gives you a first glimpse into the minds of Brother Nature. 

Definitely creating a buzz from hip hip sites like, and, the duo has developed a refreshing sound and gives listeners the feeling of the early 90’s hip hop era. You can find and discover and download their music at o
