Danny Brown- XXX

Detroit rapper Danny Brown’s latest album functions in extremes. They’re not really the angry, voluminous extremes the latest Death Grips album functions on. They’re more like extremes of excess.

Detroit rapper Danny Brown’s latest album functions in extremes. They’re not really the angry, voluminous extremes the latest Death Grips album functions on. They’re more like extremes of excess. Of course, what Danny is being excessive with is drugs, sex, misogyny, and basically anything else that one can have too much of.

Though it’s nothing new to hear someone rapping about this stuff, Danny takes it from a darker angle. The drugs and sex on this album don’t really feel all that flashy or commendable. Instead, it’s shocking enough to make a listener wanna go Mormon.

The flows are hard, the beats are pretty experimental, and I’m totally down with this guy’s outlandish lyricism. Loving it.

    :D @ “I Will” Nice joke!

    Hay man, you should review Maria Minerva`s new album from the Not Not Fun label – its called Cabaret Cixous. She is from a very exotic place – Estonia. Here`s one example (its in estonian, but the rest of the album is in english)

    i just found your site– the fact that you have a recent review of ‘xxx’ and ‘giles corey’ means a lot to me. I pretty much agree with you on this album, except that I was more into The Hybrid than it sounds like you were…

    Keep it up I’ll be watching and thanks!
