Product Description

Double vinyl pressing!! XXX is Detroit rapper Danny Brown s follow-up to 2010 s album The Hybrid . While XXX is certainly a very ahem erotically charged album, its explicitness is far from purely sexual, and it is not all pornographic boasts (though it is that too). XXX feels simultaneously more unhinged, chaotic and coherently of-a-piece than The Hybrid , the chameleon capriciousness of Danny s manic style matched and stimulated by production which draws from blistering, detuned alt-rock, trippy psychedelia, Kraftwerk-inspired techno and grime, of which he is a huge fan. So what does he rap about? Well, mostly himself, but the dominant theme of XXX probably boils down to sex and drugs. There is copious consumption of both described. Many listeners will find Danny s style intolerably garish and irritating, his content offensive and ugly, the production on far too off-kilter. Others will find his flow explosive, filled with a lunatic charm, and never boring (most tracks are short and don t outstay their welcome) and the same goes for the content and production. Yet he conjures an intensity of expression that is completely honest, unrestrained and unmannered. It s Brown s embracing of contradictions that makes him such a fascinating rapper, and XXX is given depth and longevity by a tension, or collision between hardcore rap s reality fix and the avant-garde s desire for creative and expressive freedom from reality. XXX might just represent the most polished and fully formed manifestation of street-meets-art rap so far.

Triple exxx 1 Nov. 2011
By Seth Mcarron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was my first introduction to this dude, and it was absolutely abhorrent, taxing and compellingly insane. Danny has a voice not quite like many other rappers around, he wails and whines, stretches his voice paper thin, constantly pressuring his vocal chords, pushing them to the limit without letting completely loose, for every layer of chaos in his voice, there's several more layers of restraint. Overall, the dude sounds like he's loosing his god damn mind over some ludicrously dope beats. This mixtape is quite narrow minded in terms of sonic or tonal shifts--but that's hardly a flaw here, the album is consistently loud, belligerent and unapologetic and never ceases to stimulate the listener in one way or another. Whether it be Danny's eccentric persona, the obnoxiousness and volatility of the lyrics, or the immediacy of the beats--the listener, whether they are enjoying the music or not, will no doubt be paying attention.

Scandalous and Smart Art from the Heart! 25 Feb. 2012
By Eyes and Teeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is something wrong with this Universe!
Here we have the finest Hip Hop ALBUM of 2011, yet there are barely any reviews...

Wake up Sheeple! Danny Brown is the Truth!

He IS Kipling with a tooth missing.
He IS the Shakespeare of sixteens.
He IS Langston Hughes with a blew fuse and a screw loose.

Danny brings two things back to Hip Hop that it has been lacking lately.
Pure Poetry and Raw Emotion.

People claim they keep it real, however nobody keeps it realer than this Bruiser, MuFokin' Danny Brown.
Danny Brown chronicles life in the dirty D with elegance, clarity, wit, and intelligence.
The last time a Hip Hop album moved me this much was the first time I heard Dizzee Rascal's 2003 Opus 'Boy In Da Corner'.

It's been damn near ten years since I've heard Hip Hop that grabbed me and spoke to me like this!

The juxtaposition of Danny Brown's ill poetics in conjunction with the incredible beats from SKYWLKR and Company is like magic medicine for the Mind.

The sequencing of this album is phenomenal!

Danny comes straight out the gate with 'XXX' over a Paul White banger. This is a perfect intro.
I can hear it in my head right now.
Then those maximized snares from 'Skull Snaps' come in and Mr. Brown proceeds to further align himself with your neurons which are firing happily reveling in the debauched tale of too much too soon of 'Die Like A Rockstar'.
This is a truly stunning track.
As 'Die Like A Rockstar' ends,'Pac Blood' begins, taking a Brandun Deshay flip of 'Nautilis', Danny drops some of the best verses of 2011 here.
After the aptly titled 'Radio Song' is 'Lie4' a top notch SKYWLKR joint that I can really relate to because I just got my income tax swag.

Squadda B from Oakland's Main Attrakionz lays down a beautiful bed for Brown to expound on his cunnilingus skills with cunning linguistics. I got wet after listening to this track and I don't even have a vagina!

I could go on and on.
I'm not gonna do a track by track, there are some great breakdowns and analysis elsewhere online.

The bottom line is YOU need this album. The Energy, Flow, Poetics, and Music contained on 'XXX' make it the only essential Hip Hop album of 2011. With the passing of Time, people will realize how great this album truly is.
It belongs in the Upper Echelon. Quite honestly, it is one of the best Hip Hop albums I have ever heard- and I have heard ALOT of Hip Hop albums.

Don't just take my word for it, listen to it.

Mind Blown 29 Mar. 2012
By Ragezero76 - Published on Amazon.com
What can I say about this album? I mean it is not something you play for your lady, but wow.. So much raw emotion in the tracks. I mean I jog, work and party to this music! Some people have trouble getting past his voice, but that is part of what makes this mans music so unique! His swag bursts thru every track talkin about how he parties, dresses and generally does what he wants. I mean the man got turned down by G-Unit cause he kept it real, you might not agree with everything he spews but this truly is a unique album by a great artist. He goes hard on every track like D. Rose in the paint. His previous work "The Hybrid" & "Black and Brown" are dope too! Dont sleep, BUY THIS ALBUM!

Party in the Front, Depression in the Back 20 Feb. 2014
By Jess H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
The vinyl album comes with a lyric sheet, perfect for shocking and terrifying your parents or grandparents. But beneath the initial shock value of Brown's music, there's a deep undercurrent of melancholy. Danny Brown's public persona is that of a sex-crazed, drugged out clown, but a closer look brings to mind the story about the comedian going to the psychiatrist and being told to buy a ticket to his own stand-up show to "cheer up."

This second solo effort is Danny Brown coming into his form. Daring, honest, hilarious even, but what's even more impressive is that he finds a way to mesh his voice well with some experimental beats.
The deluxe version includes three extra songs, which are the last three on the tracklist.
