Each tape was a step in leading Brown to where he is today: right up there at the top of the hip-hop game.

Meet Donmonique: Brooklyn's Resident Thirst Trapper Jul 15, 2015 at 11:30am
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. Listing Jenner sisters and former Disney stars on the hook, the 20-year-old Brooklyn rapper rides the minimal, "Vans"-style beat to paydirt, securing herself quite the underground hit, seemingly from out of nowhere.

Seems like forever ago that Danny Brown shattered expectations with Old. In this case, forever means about two and a half years. Since then, Danny Brown has been touring the globe, but recently rumors have been percolating about a new album from the late-blooming emcee. FACT Magazine has an update for us from Nick Catchdubs.

Earlier today we reported on the title of Danny Brown's new album, and he's followed up that news rather quickly with a tour announcement. The Detroit native hasn't announced a release date yet for Atrocity Exhibition, so it's unclear at the moment if the tour will lead up to the album release or follow it-- we just know that the album is arriving in the fall, and the tour will hit around that time too.

Most Danny Brown fans got hooked around XXX ("Monopoly"!), but in truth Brown lived a full rap career before XXX ever came out. Between 2003 and 2010 he put together an eleven-project run that culminated in his 2010 free album The Hybrid.  Brown is 35 years old now and more popular than ever. With his album Atrocity Exhibition due out next month, now is an appropriate time to revisit the lesser-known stage of his career.

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. Today, she shares her debut project, the Thirst Trap EP.

Danny Brown has been steady dropping snippets to promote his upcoming album. At this point, it's pretty safe to say that Atrocity Exhibition is going to be his most experimental body of work to date. Sunday afternoon, Brown shared yet another snippet, this time for a song called "Really Doe." It features a driving drum beat and a manic bell melody that meshes nicely with Brown's unhinged delivery. The song features Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul & Earl Sweatshirt, so buckle up.

As much as Danny Brown presents himself as a wild party man (which he certainly is to some extent), when it comes to his art, he puts a serious amount of care and effort into every detail. 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.
