Danny Brown represents his home of Detroit to the fullest, so it may not come as a surprise that he gets sensitive when other people try to claim his city. We saw this happen with Big Sean-- who is actually from the D, but Danny didn't think he lived the authentic Detroit experience. Now Miley Cyrus, of all people, is jumping on the Detroit bandwagon, and Danny isn't having any of it.

Last week we saw a solid output of music from artists both big and small. However, Drake took the cake with Nothing Was The Same leaking-- basically all talk revolved around Drizzy. Today let's take a look at five dope tracks that dropped in the past seven days, that are unrelated to the Toronto king. Let us know which underrated rappers you're feeling at the moment.

Lyrics Of The Week: September 13-19 Sep 20, 2013 at 06:30pm
There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of Drake's poesy). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not quite sure about will be bolded.

Rap is a young man's game, and while he's just now gaining momentum, Danny Brown is no young man. DB's obsession with his age was documented in his last album's title XXX, which was not only a representation of the pill-popping, sex-obsessed character Danny embodied on record, but also his then-recent transition into his third decade.
