5.0 out of 5 stars Energetic and sometimes serious, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Old (Audio CD)
I am prone to despising Hip Hop songs revolving around sex and drugs but Danny Brown tackles the subject with such surreal energy that it really didn't bother me, the production fits perfectly with Dannys style whether he's doing his kinda high pitched insane voice flow or his serious real voice... the serious side is as enjoyable as the 'party' side and it makes for a eccentric mixture of pain and pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars, gotta round up to 5, 14 Feb 2014
This review is from: Old (Audio CD)
Great hip-hop album. Found about Danny Brown like most people through the EXCELLENT mixtape XXX (the title being a reference to turning 30, the explicit content and the familiarity with drugs).

Old is a continuation of the themes started in XXX, growing up in the ghetto and witnessing plenty of the dark side of humanity when everyone is broke and addiction is rife. Danny still manages to make you smile and laugh while talking about some horrific stuff and there are the usual explicit stories thrown in.

It is not MTV Base ready music, there are no real chart hits here ("Dip" is great, being being a whole track about molly it's unlikely to get picked up for much airplay) - some of the production is jaw dropping, his flow and lyrics are great.

Buy this, download XXX for free and live in Danny's head for a bit, it's well worth it.

(While you're at it, grab "Devil's Heaven" by Dopehead from a mixtape site - is a member of the Bruiser Brigade crew that Danny pretty much heads up, another great album of dark lyrics and nice beats).
