In terms of songs that use the names of caucasian female celebrities to stand in for other white substances, Donmonique's "Pilates" is second only to Migos' "Hannah Montana," the track that may have started the whole trend.

Brooklyn's been in need of a breath of fresh air for quite some time (forget "restoring the feeling," let's find a new one to celebrate), and Donmonique is just that: a shit talking MC who's just as likely to hop on a trap beat as she is a grimy slice of boom bap.

In a new interview with Triple J, Danny spoke of the perfectionism that is going into his upcoming follow-up to 2013's OLD, as well as a children's book he's been working on for the last little while.

140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week (September 26) Sep 29, 2014 at 09:00am
Last week saw the appraisal of one type of love and the destruction of another. Kendrick Lamar finally dropped the highly anticipated "i," and it raised more questions than hype. The song was a tribute to self-love, but he did so in a joint that sounds a bit more of an Andre 3000 song than a Lamar single. It's that #BaduBox, guys.

Danny Brown has been relatively quite since releasing Old, and while we haven't really been getting any new music from him (apart from "Sweeney Song"), he's still making the interview rounds from time to time. Yesterday he sat down with Sway Calloway on RapFix and shared some of what he's been up to since Old. Among his adventures, Danny had some involvement in Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" video, he's visited South Africa, and he met Eminem.
