Danny Brown is a true rap original. His songs are as profane as they are profound, mixing heartfelt personal narratives and razor-sharp social commentary with hedonistic party beats and hysterical, pitch-black punchlines. His personal style is as unique as his music, an inspiration to high fashion designers and legions of devoted fans alike. Danny’s Fool’s Gold debut XXX was a free release that snowballed into the year’s most critically-lauded rap album, landing the Detroit hero on the covers of The Fade, CCL and Wax Poetics, and follow-up single Grown Up was a viral video smash that brought Danny an mtvU Woodie Award and millions of YouTube views.
Now, after two solid years of universal acclaim and non-stop touring around the globe, Danny jumps from artist to watch to undeniable icon with his magnum opus, Old. This emotionally-charged concept album is an intoxicating mix of Danny at his most experimental AND most accessible, balancing hip-hop grit with electronic club sonics and much, much more. Featuring guest appearances from ASAP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Freddie Gibbs, Purity Ring, Charii XCX, and more over production from the likes of A-Trak and Rustie, Old is a psychedelic portrait of rap’s most vital and exciting new star.
