Danny Brown is a versatile rapper who makes anything he's involved in feel effortless and cool, but he also has his finger on the pulse as far as important cultural and artistic moments.

Eminem, Royce da 5’9″, Big Sean, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf, Trick Trick – “Detroit Vs. Everybody” Video

Last year, Eminem rounded up all the nationally relevant rappers in his hometown -- and there are a lot of them, even if they have nothing to do with each other otherwise -- for a hometown-pride posse cut called "Detroit Vs. Everybody." And in grand posse-cut tradition, we now have the video, and it'… More »

Danny Brown Is Writing A Children’s Book

Danny Brown is currently at work on the follow-up to his 2013 album Old. This is very, very good news. But Brown is also working on another, very different artistic endeavor: A children's book. As Rolling Stone points out, Brown tells the Australian radio station Triple J that he's writing the book specifically… More »

Watch Young Thug, Killer Mike, Danny Brown, Pusha T, & Dozens More On 42-Minute Posse Cut “The Rap Monument”

Up until today, the Game's 13-minute, 25-rapper "One Blood" remix has been the final word in absurd, overlong rap posse cuts. But now Noisey & Hennessy have outdone it by putting together the 42-minute, 36-rapper "The Rap Monument." The new track has verses from a deeply ridiculous number of rappers. Plenty of them are… More »

Action Bronson & Danny Brown – “Bad News” (Prod. The Alchemist)

The newly re-released Grand Theft Auto V features a pile of new songs, and one of those songs is "Bad News," in which singular rap bugout specialists (and former tourmates) Action Bronson and Danny Brown double-team a hectic Alchemist beat. These guys are, as ever, absolute characters, and it's a blast to hear them bounce… More »

Eminem – “Detroit Vs. Everybody” (Feat. Royce Da 5’9″, Big Sean, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf & Trick Trick)

Eminem, who is a butthead, is about to release Shady XV, a double-disc compilation of tracks from his Shady Records label. The album has a few new tracks, including the one where Em threatens a female pop singer and makes a tasteless Ray Rice joke in the span of one line. And… More »

Phantogram – “Black Out Days (Remix)” (Feat. Danny Brown & Leo Justi)

We've already heard a Future Islands remix of Phantogram's exquisite Voices single "Black Out Days." Now here's another alternate take by Brazilian "heavy baile" producer Leo Justi, topped off with typically electric wordplay by Danny Brown, who's already proven he knows how to rap over sleek, otherworldly electronic pop. Check out the… More »

Rustie – “Attak (Swisha House Remix)” (Feat. Danny Brown)

On the single "Attak," the Glaswegian dance-music maximalist Rustie and the Detroit rap wolverine Danny Brown teamed up for an all-out blitzkrieg of a track. It wasn't like you could make "Attak" any faster or harder, so Rustie went the other way. He got Michael "5000" Watts, the man behind the long-running Houston ra… More »

Danny Brown – “Smokin’ & Drinkin'” Video

Danny Brown's A-Trak-produced "Smokin' & Drinkin'" is maybe the most raucous party song on the phenomenal 2013 LP Old, an album with a back half that's practically nothing but raucous party songs. And the clip's new video finds him in full hedonist mode, throwing back beverages at a house party filled with people who… More »

Beatking – “Rambunctious” (Feat. Danny Brown & Riff Raff)

The Houston rapper Beatking is a regional Texas cult hero who seems ready to get the internet going nuts, at least when people start hearing his monstrous new track "Rambunctious." The track has a huge, squelching electronic SGT J beat and on-fire verses from noted internet-beloved goofballs Danny Brown and Riff Raff, both of whom… More »

Lucki Eck$ – “Weightin’ On” (Feat. Danny Brown) (Stereogum Premiere)

Lucki Eck$ is an 18-year-old rapper from Chicago who has caught the attention of some very talented people. Earlier this month we posted his "Ouch Ouch" video, which was directed by and starred FKA Twigs. "Weightin' On," his latest, features Danny Brown, whom he met at SXSW when they both played Red Bull's Sound… More »

Rustie – “Attak” (Feat. Danny Brown) Video

The Scottish producer Rustie and the Detroit rapper Danny Brown have worked together a few times before, but their frantic new collab "Attak" is probably the dizziest, most intense, best thing they've ever done together. In the song's brand-new video, we see Brown rapping furiously while increasingly distorted, mangled subtitles weave their way around… More »

Danny Brown Says His Record With The Avalanches Will “Change The World”

Australian DJ crew the Avalanches released their landmark debut album Since I Left You in 2000, and since then, there have been a lot of rumors about a follow-up album but no actual follow-up album. There have been a few songs here and there, and a few years ago, the news circulated that they'd done… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

It was a good week for songs. Any week whose 5 Best Songs includes seven artists including Danny Brown, Ezra Koenig, Jessie Ware, Rustie, SBTRKT, Shura, and Spoon? That is a good week for songs. And you know what? You could maybe even argue that a few others shoulda been squeezed on there, too. Do… More »

Rustie – “Attak” (Feat. Danny Brown)

Last month, Rustie released the first single from Green Language, the very long-awaited follow up to his just about perfect debut, Glass Swords. One of the big surprises was that nearly half the album's tracklist had vocalists listed, something that's a major (and somewhat risky) move for the Scottish producer. The most exciting of… More »

Watch A$AP Rocky Join Danny Brown Onstage At Wembley

This past weekend, Eminem played a huge show at London's Wembley Stadium and brought Dr. Dre with him. As an opening act, Em chose fellow Detroit rap monster Danny Brown. And Brown got his own big spotlight-guest moment. Brown's set included a guest appearance from A$AP Rocky, which is a good thing, not least… More »

Busdriver – “Ego Death” (Feat. Aesop Rock & Danny Brown) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

A couple of weeks ago, the motormouthed L.A. rap expressionist Busdriver lined up fellow underground rap originals Aesop Rock and Danny Brown for a dense, wordy throwdown called "Ego Death." In making the song's video, director Strangeloop has congured a dystopic computer-animated vision in which a robot wanders abandoned street and encounters rapping… More »

Rustie – “Raptor”

For many people (myself included), Rustie was just about the best thing to happen to electronic music in 2011. His debut album, Glass Swords, was a baffling, completely alien piece of music, and though we enjoyed the Essential Mix, then last year's single on Numbers' "Slasherr" and his production work on Danny Brown's incredible… More »
