BeatKing Feat. Danny Brown "BDA Remix" Video
BeatKing Feat. Danny Brown
One of the few Danny Brown features we've gotten this year was on BeatKing's latest mixtape Club God 4. BeatKing is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with outta Houston, and Danny Brown is the perfect match for his ratchet club-wrecking sound. We've now got the video to "BDA Remix", which shows the two unhinged ragers going back and forth over a bumping production from BeatKing himself.
Danny Brown Talks Jail, Making Nicki Minaj Cry In Red Bull Lecture
Danny Brown's one of the game's most underrated lyricists, and when he sat down for a lecture at Red Bull Music Academy in Glasgow, Scotland, we learned that one of his verses once made the current queen of rap cry. Here's the transcript of the story, thanks to XXL:
Danny Brown Pelted With Glass Of Water, Ends Show Early
Concert attendees: don't throw shit onstage. You should know that by now. Not only is it rude and potentially dangerous to the performer, but it can also ruin everyone else's time if your missile of choice is destructive enough to warrant the show ending early. Last night, some idiot threw a glass (not a bottle) of water at Danny Brown while he was performing in Glasgow, and after it hit him in the chest, he exited the stage without a word, never returning to complete the show.

Danny Brown & Hannibal Buress Cruise Bonnaroo In A Golf Cart
Danny Brown and Hannibal Buress are two of our favorite people, so the concept of the two of them hanging out in a golf cart for 8 and a half minutes instantly sold us. While we expected plenty of absurd back-and-forth, we didn't expect to get a music lesson, as Danny and Hannibal (Dannybal?) riff on some of Kanye West's early collaborations with Dilated Peoples, Slum Village, and Do Or Die, even getting into Crucial Conflict at one point.

Damn, "Rap Monument" is gonna be one long-ass song, that's for sure.

Lucki Eck$ "Finesse" Video
At the center of Lucki Eck$' dynamite 2014 tape Body High is the "just doing my job" anthem "Finesse." Today, the watery, rather avant-garde track gets a video that shows Eck$ driving around town and serving his customers.
Black Milk Talks "If There's A Hell Below," Working With Bun B And Pete Rock
For the past decade, Black Milk has been making exciting, genre-bending hip-hop records. The Detroit native got his start as a producer, but took up rapping in the early 2000s and has never looked back.

Danny Brown "Smokin & Drinkin" Video
Danny Brown has been popping up mainly as a featured artist these days, but we're sure he's got something in the works when it comes to his personal music. The Detroit native takes things back to his Old album, with the release of an official music video for the getting-fucked-up anthem "Smokin & Drinkin." Where else would such a music video be filmed if not at a turnt-up and dimly-lit house party with black lights?

Rustie Feat. Danny Brown "Attak" Video
Rustie Feat. Danny Brown
Scottish traptronica producer Rustie was one of the main reason that the second half of Danny Brown's Old LP banged so hard. He produced three tracks on that, and a few weeks ago, Brown returned the favor by guesting on "Attak," taken from Rustie's upcoming full length.

Busdriver Feat. Aesop Rock & Danny Brown
If you're looking for enigmatic, idiosyncratic MCs, you'd be hard-pressed to find a trio that fits the description more so than Busdriver, Aesop Rock and Danny Brown, all of whom link up on "Ego Death." Taken from Busdriver's upcoming album Perfect Hair, the track has now gotten a fittingly batshit video.
