The Detroit rapper drops a new video and a September release date for 'Old.'
After Kendrick Lamar verbally destroyed many of the hottest young MCs on Big Sean's 'Control,' we singled out Detroit's Danny Brown as one of the five best rappers who went unscathed. Why? Brown is a wild dude with a bizarre perspective and an absurdly unique flow, and he provides a refreshing counterpoint to mainstream rap's one-dimensionality.
In his new video for 'ODB,' named after the late Wu-Tang Clan member Ol' Dirty Bastard, Brown looks like a mess. He seems totally zonked, but still on fire and lyrically twisted, much like his hero, ODB.
'ODB' is from Brown's upcoming 'Old' LP, out September 30 through Fool's Gold. The new album, Brown's follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'XXX,' will feature guest appearances from Purity Ring, Charli XCX, Schoolboy Q, A$AP Rocky, Freddie Gibbs, Fools Gold co-founder A-Trak, and more. Sounds like a fun party.
