The Tape Deck '12: Volume #37

Monday, August 27, 2012


Danny the Uncanny

It takes a certain kind of individual to tap into the id, the dark, pleasure-driven recesses of the mind, and dig up its contents with apparent ease, transmitting clusters of tripped-the-f*ck-out schema over the microphone like he's attending an acid-laced therapy session in a recording studio with padded walls. Danny Brown's that kind of guy. He's ODB on crack. (Wait, that sounded redundant, didn't it?) Maybe it's just the way I perceive his artistic approach, but there seems to be something so harmonious in the chaos that is Danny Brown. He's certainly one of the top emcees I check for these days, and there's no sign of him slowing down either. Here's a sampling of his recent contributions to society.
