Danny Brown - XXX (CD)

Record Label: Fool's Gold Records

We got our hands on a couple of Danny Brown's XXX CDs, originally pressed up as a limited exclusive for the Fool's Gold Records storefront in Brooklyn.

The first full-length release from Danny since his acclaimed The Hybrid in 2010, XXX is a concept record about hedonism, growing up, and Detroit, taking listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through the uncensored mind of rap's most electric MC. There's no laundry list of guest appearances or producers-for-hire, keeping the focus squarely on Danny and his rhymes: a triple stack of pop culture references and did-he-really-say-that? provocations atop the heart of a poet.

"The most peculiarly infectious voice since Dizzee Rascal." -- Pitchfork
"Obsessed with words in an era that doesn't support laboring over lyrics, Brown is reinterpreting hip-hop his own way." -- The Fader
