In an era of industry-obsessed MCs, interchangeable hashtag raps, and viral everything, it has become increasingly difficult to find a true original in the rap game, an artist able to ignite a buzz without calculatedly chasing it down. Yet ask anyone whos been paying attention and theyll tell you: Danny Brown is that dude.
Recording since his teens, 2010 was Dannys breakout year, with his self-released The Hybrid showcasing a hypnotic, unique flow that Pitchfork called the most peculiarly infectious voice since Dizzee Rascal, while the LA Times praised it for punch lines like Conan OBrien if hed come up selling crack. He built a rabid online fanbase, stole the show on collaborations with everyone from Tony Yayo to Das Racist to the late J Dilla, and covered the Metro Times as the most acclaimed underground Detroit MC since a certain blonde fellow named Marshall. When it came time for Danny to take the next step and find a real home for his new music, it was only right that he would find a perfect fit with Fools Gold.
When we first met, we really didnt talk about doing business; we talked about music the whole time, says Danny of what endeared him to Fools Gold. That was the illest thing to me, because I sat down with a lot of labels and all we were talking about was, How can we make this project work? and this and that. Fools Gold was all about being fans of music, and How can we make Danny Brown better? I didnt know they were such huge hip-hop nerds. A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, you think of dance music, but theyre real knowledgeable with everything.
Fools Gold is thrilled to bring Danny Brown into our family, says A-Trak. Weve been supporting his music on our blog for a long time, so were fans of his before anything else. Danny Brown represents a return to raw, gritty rap. His skills cant be questioned. He sounds and looks like no one out there, and thats something that appeals to us. We share the same grassroots values, and we cant wait to get behind his new album!
