It was strange when the tracklist for Old was released, as the album was divided into two different halves, but at first listen it's obvious why: they represent two sides of Danny Brown's multifaceted psyche and personality, as well as the old and the new. Garnering success after the release of his second studio album XXX last year, the Detroit-born rapper is more confident in his weirdness and originality than ever before, a major facet of his work that attracted fans; he's finally put it all on full display.

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.

Danny Brown is known for his erratic behavior, drug talk, high-pitched voice, and missing teeth, which may make him seem like an unlikely candidate to become a mainstream star. However, he's found a strong fan-base, and continues to grow in popularity, and given the Internet age, who knows how big he'll get? Although the rapper isn't opposed to having a hit song, in a new interview with Fuse, he discusses those rappers who 'try' to make a hit, and are in the game for the love of money.
