Danny Brown is known for his gap-toothed smile, something he flashes in just about every photo. The story of how he lost his two front teeth is one he has shared with fans, it all happened many years ago when he was hit by a car in the parking lot of a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant.
This week everyone's favorite dope boy Pusha T finally made his Charts debut, with My Name Is My Name. The album, which has been praised highly by most, managed a #4 debut, selling on the lower-end of the projected amount, with 75k.
OLD is Detroit emcee Danny Brown's third studio project, released on October 8th via Fool's Gold Records. The audience rating on our review of the album stands at 85%, and we feel it's one of the better offerings of 2013, both sonically and lyrically.
This week's numbers are in, some more impressive than others. Pusha T's long-awaited debut, My Name Is My Name came in just under expectations, but still managed to put some "Numbers On The Boards" with 74,610 units, though unfortunately not enough to edge Drake out of the number 3 spot.
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.
Danny Brown is in the thick of his co-headlining "2 High To Die" tour with Action Bronson (and was just granted entry to play shows in Canada for the first time), but the Old emcee already has another joint tour up his sleeve.
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.
Danny Brown's long-awaited album Old is finally ready for release (and may or may not have sprung a leak last night). Even so, Danny is offering an album stream for fans via Spotify.
The album features Freddie Gibbs, ScHoolboy Q, Purity Ring, Ab-Soul and more. Listen below and let us know your first thoughts.
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.
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.
Danny Brown's label Fool's Gold is finally ready to release Danny's album OLD on September 30th.
Today we get a look at the cover art, which follows in a recent trend of incorporating frames within the artwork. Check it out above.
Are you feeling the mainly black and white cover art?
We heard in recent interviews with Danny Brown that his anticipated album, OLD, is completely ready to go and he's just waiting on his label's OK. It sounds like the Detroit native is getting impatient, taking to Twitter to vent his feelings about the project.
