Must See: Danny Brown At Best Buy In July



Straight up: any decade that brought you Public Enemy, Biggie, 2Pac, De La Soul, ODB and the rest of Wu Tang… man, the list is long and the list is kickin’, any decade like that is gonna be hard to beat, and the 2010s aren’t beating it… but the 2010s  have their moments.

Now we are past Southern hop, let’s concentrate on the new mainstream: Chance the Rapper, Freddie Gibb, Schoolboy Q, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Tyler, Mellow Hype, ab-soul -indeed all of black hippie… and that’s just off the top of my head, there is some real good stuff out there…

On the week of January 21st, I have the broke mo-fo summer vacation week. Gonna catch the Tonight Show and otherwise… sleep a lot and now see one of my fave, no wait, two of my fave rappers for the first time. I love Danny Brown, and if he can bring it live and I am not sure he can, he will be raised miles in my estimate.

Danny is a real American Black weirdo, the latest in a long line, and I think of all the names around here, he is the most purely commited and commitable rhymer. His flow isn’t better, phrasing not as good as Lamar and neither is his voice but his rhyming is impeccable and the two albums I’ve heard are both simply and undoubtedly fabulous albums. Strange, druggy, upset, and growing old but more concentrated: it is one of the great sophomore albums and I can’t wait to see him live.

Danny is headlining Peterpalooza, Peter Rosenberg of Hut 97’s annual party at Best Buy  with the nearly his equal Schoolboy Q supporting and the not ready for rprime but getting there Action Bronson. Rp is fine live now, the old all bass all the time days are over. And Danny is along with Chance and Earl, the next generation of rap.
