Danny Brown, the greatest hip hop artist coming from Detroit since Eminem and J. Dilla (sorry Big Sean). I fell in love with Danny Browns music with his "XXX" album. Danny Brown knows how to humorize dark and depressing subject matter into entertaining music. What I love about Danny Brown is that he can change his voice into 2 distinct personalities 1) Being dark and serious 2) the crazy character when he deliberately raps in a higher pitch. "OLD" is the third album released by Danny Brown, but the first album to be released in retail stores. I can comfortably say OLD is easily one of the top 10 rap albums of 2013. The beats, flow and lyrics are diverse, enigmatic and just intriguing to listen to. Some of my favorite songs include the opening track "Side A (Old)", the experimental "Kush Coma" feat. A$AP Rocky, "Torture", the club banger "Smokin & Drinkin", "Break It (Go)", "Dope Fiend Rental" feat. ScHoolboy Q and "25 Bucks". The album is filled with 19 songs, but each song runs about 3 minutes or less on average. I particularly love the fact that Danny Brown is able to make music that is exciting and noticeably different from other hip hop artists as well as his previous catalog. No this is not "XXX", and no Danny Brown isn't the most gifted lyricist. But what Danny Brown does have is charisma, which is reminiscent of the legendary Wu-Tang clansman Ol' Dirty Bastard. The appeal that lies in Danny Brown as an artist is his character and his unique flow so without being said BUY OLD if you love Hip Hop. Yes its experimental, yes it isn't the easiest or most comprehensible album you will hear this year, but it is undeniably great.
