Dopehead – “Bout It Bout It Part 3″ (Feat. Danny Brown)

The Detroit rapper Dopehead is a longtime Danny Brown collaborator, and he earned Mixtape Of The Week distinctions two years ago for Plaid Palm Trees. He's back now with another new tape called Devil's Heaven, and on the track "Bout It Bout It Part 3" -- which does not reference anything Master P-related --… More »

Photos: Treasure Island Festival 2013

People who live in the Bay Area are lucky. Not only did they get to enjoy the incredible Outside Lands lineup, a month later they get a whole other festival in the form of Treasure Island. A ton of great bands showed up there over the weekend, from James Blake to Holy Ghost! to Real… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Our weekly track countdown is still a toddler when it comes to Stereogum franchises, but it's already teeming with vets. And a couple of repeat performers have made the list this week, one with a previously-unheard cut (following the recent debut of their acclaimed full-length) and another with a song that's been floating around i… More »

Album Of The Week: Danny Brown Old

For its vision and audacity and pure sonics, Yeezus is a great album. I've been calling it my favorite album of the year for months now, and all of a sudden I'm not so sure anymore. In any case, even if it's the album of the year, it's definitely not the rap album of… More »

Danny Brown – “Side B (Dope Song)” Video

Danny Brown's ridiculously great new album Old is out today, and it comes separated into two halves, opening with relatively introspective boom-bap on the first "side" and then moving into manic drug anthems. The second side opens with "Dope Song," the song where Brown raps about his drug-dealing past and about how he's not… More »

Stream Danny Brown Old

I've had the press advance for about a week now, and there's a reasonable chance that Old, the new album from the Detroit rapper Danny Brown, is the rap album of the year -- or, hell, the album of the year in any genre. It is an absolute monster, an expressionistic clusterfuck of hedonistic raunch,… More »

Indie Kidz Songs: Hear Parodies Of Grimes, Vampire Weekend, Dirty Projectors, And More Singing Children’s Classics

You might remember late last year finding a commercial for a fake Christmas song compilation by indie music stars including Bon Iver, Beach House, and the xx. The parody video by Animal New York (with the music by Adam Horne of the band Bear Ceuse) was so hilarious because the impressions were… More »

Danny Brown – “Dip” Video

Danny Brown is now mere weeks away from releasing his new album Old, and I cannot wait. In recent weeks, he's shared new songs like "ODB" and "Side A (Old)," and now he's got a new one, entirely about being so gone on ecstasy that you barely know what's going on. Producer SKYWLKR'… More »

Danny Brown – “Side A (Old)”

It seems like an eternity since it was announced, but we're finally closing in on the release of Old, Danny Brown's follow-up to the incredible, funny, and devastating XXX. We've heard multiple live previews, the occasional new studio cut, and news of collaborations with everyone from Rustie to Purity Ring. Now you can hear… More »

Behind The Scenes At Fool’s Gold’s Day Off 2013

On Monday, the Brooklyn-based Fool's Gold label carried on its tradition of hat-tipping old New York with an annual Day Off block party. Helmed by founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, the free party that once took over the backyard parking lot of a Manhattan bar had clearly grown with the label's popularity, sprawling over Williamsburg… More »

Danny Brown – “ODB” Video

The time has finally come. The yammering and excitable Detroit rapper Danny Brown, a dirty old man with a pill in his mouth and his dick in his hand, is just one month away from releasing his new album Old, the feverishly-awaited follow-up to his triumphant 2011 full-length XXX. The album is set to include… More »

Portugal. The Man – “Evil Friends (Jake One Remix Feat. Danny Brown)”

Danny Brown and Seattle producer Jake One (who has worked with a slew of artists from Chance The Rapper to T.I.) have linked to up to flip Portugal. The Man's "Evil Friends." Jake One maintains the track's somber tone but adds a bit of soul flair and a backpack rap backbone to the cut while… More »

SD – “New World Order (Remix)” (Feat. Danny Brown) Video

SD is part of Chief Keef's Chicago crew GBE, and last week, in what might've been the greatest collision of exploding Chicago rap nihilism and internet-rap weirdness since Keef and Riff Raff made "Cuz My Gear," Danny Brown jumped on a remix of SD's already-anthemic "New World Order" and absolutely went nuts. And… More »

Danny Brown – “Hand Stand”

Rap energy-bomb Danny Brown has been on a serious roll lately, and with his new album Old supposedly just around the corner, we should expect to hear more frantic badassery from him all the time. The latest thing we've heard from him is a hedonistic spazz-out called "Hand Stand," with a warehouse-rave beat from producer… More »

E-40 – “All My Niggas” (Feat. Danny Brown & Schoolboy Q) Video

Last month, the Bay Area rap originator E-40, one of the genre's few universally beloved and still-relevant figures, linked with internet-rap livewires Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q for "All My Niggas," a hard and unpretentious little banger. The song's new video, from director Ben Griffin, is a low-budget rapping-in-the-warehouse affair, too visually static to… More »

SD – “New World Order (Remix)” (Feat. Danny Brown)

I probably should've realized this already, but after seeing him live in Sweden over the weekend, it's now absolutely apparent that I need to post something every time Danny Brown farts in a recording studio. Brown is on a ridiculous roll right now, and just about everything he's done lately has been monstrous. Case… More »

Way Out West 2013 Day 3: Kendrick Lamar, Cat Power, Disclosure, & More

On Friday, I sat down for a beer with Joel Borg, one of the founders of Gothenburg, Sweden's Way Out West festival. (I might post the whole conversation later if I get time; it was an interesting one.) The festival's booking has a general sonic identity of its own, one that exists somewhere near the… More »

E-40 – “All My Niggas” (Feat. Danny Brown & Schoolboy Q)

Bay Area rap godfather and inveterate weirdo E-40 might be the most universally respected elder-statesman figure in all of rap right now, and his productivity has, if anything, increased as he's advanced deeper into middle age. At this point, he can work with just about any rapper he feels like working with, so let's credit… More »

Sasquatch! 2013 Sunday: Killer Mike, Grimes, Earl Sweatshirt, & More

If Friday and Saturday felt a little lite in the hip-hop department, Sunday was like an all you can eat buffet. I indulged quite a bit, but before the hip-hop marathon started, Sunday may have had the best start of the weekend with Deep Sea Diver's early 2pm set. You may not have… More »
