What does taking "blunts to the face" mean? You've used that line in a few songs.

haha you have to be excited about his album title

Actually it's awesome, yeah

I just pray that "grown up" isn't the lyrical template for this album

Raymond Cummings, Tuesday, 18 December 2012 12:45 (six years ago) link

I just didn't care about that song. Fuck maturity

I'm kinda scared that Old won't even touch XX
Since that mixtape I've been mostly underwhelmed/disappointed by his tracks/guest spots

Raymond Cummings, Wednesday, 20 March 2013 03:52 (six years ago) link

yeah i'm not too sure about this

somehow i completely missed Hottest MC when it came out; it took Spin's list of the 40 best songs of the year so far for me to find it

now i can't stop listening to it:

http://www.spin.com/articles/best-songs-tracks-2013-so-far-list/?slide=12

can someone tell me the name of the This Heat song is that's apparently sampled here, according to Spin?

alpine static, Thursday, 30 May 2013 04:37 (six years ago) link

the big sample there is not this heat but vangelis (more precisely, aphrodite's child)

flesh, the devil, and a wolf (wolf) (amateurist), Thursday, 30 May 2013 19:19 (six years ago) link

yeah This Heat was sampled on "Adderall Admiral" on XXX

"tell me what i don't know" is stunning

dr. mercurio arboria (mh 😏), Tuesday, 27 September 2016 19:55 (two years ago) link

M@tt otm, best when he finds the balance between the two voices. May be why I still prefer The Hybrid to anything else he's released since.

Spottie, Tuesday, 27 September 2016 20:04 (two years ago) link

gripes about the voice aside...man...this album is really something huh?

this has been a problem for me from day one. love everything about Danny except those songs.

alpine static, Tuesday, 27 September 2016 21:11 (two years ago) link

imo the "natural voice" stuff is mostly a framing device for the "here comes danny brown!" moment when the lyrics fall back into the depression/paranoia.... drugs/pussy/no sleep/AHHHH lyrical breakdown

Spottie, Tuesday, 27 September 2016 22:21 (two years ago) link

album kinda dropped off in the middle but the ends are great

Spottie, Tuesday, 27 September 2016 22:21 (two years ago) link

ungh I think the openers have short sets so they threw a really perfunctory dj out. maybe should have shown up later -- I usually like to see openers but this is padding wtf

dr. mercurio arboria (mh 😏), Wednesday, 28 September 2016 01:42 (two years ago) link

first thoughts are all "omg this the best shit ever" hyperbole. it's obv not perfect but i don't see my opinion dropping much!

i can see some of the backlash coming already - look, he made an artsy noisy obtuse album for ppl who don't like street rap/ppl who dont like popular rap/hipsters/insert strawman here - but every indication of his personality makes me feel like he made exactly what he wanted to make, and hear.

(overwrought metaphor coming) it feels like distorted sonar dispatches from someone traveling through the inside of his head. (overwrought metaphor that i nonetheless believe complete)

if young slothrop don't trust ya i'm gon' rhyme ya (slothroprhymes), Wednesday, 28 September 2016 03:50 (two years ago) link

only getting to listen to this in small chunks but it's great so far. i don't always like Paul White's production but it works for a cohesive sound across the whole thing (the beat on 'Pneumonia' though, i'd be ok if Evian Christ did every track).

the sequence from "Really Doe" to "Dance in the Water" is amazing

Earl Sweatshirt verse is kinda garbs

warm winds and clear skies, Saturday, 1 October 2016 22:41 (two years ago) link

Earl is so overrated

Spottie, Sunday, 2 October 2016 02:48 (two years ago) link

Album has its moments, but it's not as good as Old so far... production sounds like its competing with DB. White Lines is cool though.

warm winds and clear skies, Sunday, 2 October 2016 19:53 (two years ago) link

two weeks pass...

love this album, especially all the uptempo tracks. it's all i've felt like listening to lately.

production sounds like its competing with DB.

when i heard the tracks they released ahead of the album i had that same thought, that the post-punky samples didn't really blend with his voice, but in context it all somehow works.

on the other hand, i really don't like the production on the new Open Mike Eagle, there it clashes and doesn't leave enough space for him.

sam jax sax jam (Jordan), Thursday, 20 October 2016 17:18 (two years ago) link

one of the year's best imo

The burrito of ennui (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 20 October 2016 17:20 (two years ago) link

I think I agree

i believe that (s)he is sincere (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 26 October 2016 02:23 (two years ago) link

Yep, great album on the strength of the production alone. Need to dig more into the lyrics but this is definitely standing up to Old and XXX

I know hoes that know Ali Farka Toure (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 26 October 2016 02:33 (two years ago) link

He posted the video for "Ain't it Funny" yesterday. Probably my favorite video of his. Increasingly convinced that Danny Brown is one of the best rappers atm. He's got a unique, singular vision. Him, Earl, Kanye... I would listen to anything they do.

Great song and an even better video (directed by Jonah Hill????)

Every time I come across a Danny Brown song, my reaction is always "who knew that people would be all over a rapping Sammy Davis, Jr?"

brigadier pudding (DJP), Friday, 6 September 2019 17:02 (one week ago) link

I didn't think I'd ever heard this guy, but after ^ that description I suspected it was that weird sounding guy on that one track on Sour Soul, and so I investigated and of course it is. will probably listen to this
