Although they both rose to prominence in the fall of 2011 (one with XXX, the other with a few otherworldly beats on A$AP Rocky's Live.Love.A$AP), Danny Brown and Clams Casino have never collaborated before. That changes today with the release of "Worth It," this week's track in the Adult Swim Singles club.
For this one, Clams gets even more abstract and dark than he did on his contributions to Vince Staples' excellent Summertime '06, ending up giving Brown a beat that sounds like RZA's best attempt at making grime. Over this experimental soundtrack, Brown provides the backbone of the track's pacing with bars that are much more snapped-in than Clams' meandering production.
Machete in the haystack
Around these needles puttin' poison in your veins
What they be speakin' puttin' poison in your brain
Swear to god got me trippin', thinkin' on a different plane
