I was a little late, but I fell in love with Danny Brown after his verse on “Round of Applause,” a track from Black Milk’s Album of The Year (accurate album title alert). So after my girl Katie and the homie House Shoes chewed me out a few weeks ago for not having all of Danny’s mixtapes and previous workings, they quickly got me caught up that is the epic glory that is Danny Brown. With an aggressive vocal style, ill lyrics and even better punch lines, It only took me listening to The Hybrid and Hot Soup a few times for me to realize that he is a part of The Truth and The Future. The Way and The Light.
So no sooner than I find this dude and fall in love with his flow and delivery do I find out that he signs up with Fools Gold for a distribution deal. And he sounds excited to be there. Quote Danny and Swipe from iHipHop.com:
So Danny Brown just stopped by the office and revealed to me that he is signing with Fools Gold Records. To be honest I was a little surprised, but that is a great look for him. Since Cudder they have been a little quite (in hip-hop, that “Barbra Streisand” joint is killing it), and the Donnis signing was a misstep in my opinion. A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs are excellent and at bringing music to people who don’t merely concentrate on the genre of hip-hop, and I think that although Danny is on some rappity rap sh*t he has the capability to appeal to people with diverse tastes in music. Plus as Danny just eloquently told me, “Fool’s Gold has the bitches”.
So the future is looking bright for this kid right here. Should be good times. Find the links and enjoy.
