Danny Brown – OLD – The STiXXclusive Review

Posted on October 23, 2013

When we last heard from Danny Brown, he was doing rock star things like getting topped off mid-performance in Minnesota and doing other outlandish things while under the influence of one of his favourite drugs, Molly (MDMA for the newbies). Unlike the plethora of rappers who used the drug in their rhymes just out of trend, Danny has actually done it, does it, and it`s a part of his lifestyle. There are always rare exceptions to the rules, and Danny isn`t a rapper who necessarily abides by all of them; after all – he did threaten his label that he would leak his own album (M.I.A also did this; whom is another known rebel artist). Danny Brown’s music had to grow on me, and…

2 High 2 Die for 1 Night of Madness

Posted on October 18, 2013

This is a fascinating thing, because I wasn’t even sure that I was even going to be attending this show to begin with. Danny Brown has a history of not getting through our ‘sometimes-unnecessarily-strict’ Canadian Border, and just a few days before the October 1st show, he was denied in Calgary. That right there was a sign that it was only going to be Action Bronson & Odd Future’s Trash Talk that would be performing (until I found out that Trash Talk also didn’t make it through the border). Things weren’t looking good at all, but then all of a sudden on the day of the show, Danny Brown tweeted that he got into Toronto – everything changed. Now, you have me at work…

Danny Brown – ODB

Posted on August 30, 2013

OLD is coming, and as to what many people call him the new ODB, it makes sense that he has a song called ODB (and in rap years, he’s ‘old’). If you still for some reason have not heard anything by Danny Brown, check the profile to get caught up. September is already going to be a great month for albums, and with his approaching the end of that month, it’ll just be a top off. This song features a crazy sample that has been consistent with his sound since I’ve started listening to him, so it’s good to know that he’s keeping with his craft and staying particular to what he does, which is pretty much anything. The video’s cool, check it out and enjoy.

Danny Brown – Kush Coma (Feat. A$AP Rocky & Zelooperz)

Posted on June 19, 2013

OLD is coming soon, and hopefully in the summer, in what has been one great year for Hip Hop/Rap thus far; can’t wait for the rest of the year to unfold. A snippet came out a while back, and most recently a radio rip of this, but now here’s the official thing. Danny Brown is hype, and he goes all out (listen to XXX to understand). Turn up to this one.

Danny Brown – Bruiser Brigade EP x Blueberry EP

Posted on September 21, 2012

Danny Brown really hasn’t put out a project since his debut album ‘XXX’, but he’s been all over the place with features, such as: Toxic (With Childish Gambino – R O Y A L T Y) Flight Confirmation (Feat. Schoolboy Q; Alchemist – Russian Roulette) Coke & White Bitches (Feat. A$AP Ant, Fat Trel & Gunplay – Lord$ Never Worry) Terrorist Threats (With Ab-Soul & Jhene Aiko – Control System) Molly Ringwald (Produced by Araabmuzik) He’s currently on tour with A$AP Rocky & ScHoolboy Q, but hopefully once he gets off, he provides us with a new mixtape or an album. He’s still collectively building up an audience with notable shows at Soundset & Pitchfork Music Festival. BUT, since he’s the rapper that is known to…

Soundset 2012 – A Day For Celebration of Hip Hop

Posted on May 29, 2012

Read how Myself & friend, Devon got to Soundset on our journey from Canada ‘From Sunrise to Soundset’  In what probably was the single-handed greatest day of my life (well, one of them), Soundset (presented by Rhymesayers) managed to capture what is the TRUE essence of the Hip Hop culture. Hip hop is not just about the genre of music – It’s a lifestyle and a universal language that stretches beyond the North American borders. In this case, it remained in the United States, but the key word – united – is what people were. They came in from states near and far to see some of their favourite artists perform, and also discover some new acts in the process. I wish there were…

Artist Profile – Danny Brown

Posted on April 10, 2012

“Sittin on some Kobe’s Smoking on a stogie Bangin Noreaga When I’m done I lite the bogie (what, what) 40 on the floor mat a leave ya holey moley Banana in her tailpipe will make her act so folly” First thing’s first: this guy is frigging WEIRD! That was my impression of him a few months ago, and that’s my impression now, but with more studying of him, he’s grown on me and I’ve come to terms to deal with his eccentric self. Look at Tyler, The Creator and the things he says in his songs, then you have Danny Brown: the east coast version, although I hate to compare the two there are some similarities. Both of them are not for the easily, EASILY…

(New Music) Terrorist Threats – Ab-Soul x Danny Brown x Jhene Aiko

Posted on April 6, 2012

An Artist Profile for this man is a bit overdue, because I feel as though people should take him in, and since I already have done two members of the Black Hippy crew (Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q), Soul is due for one. That may come later, but for now, he has brought us new music. Jhene Aiko has claimed a lot of my love, and from her own words to me, she has said that a project from her is coming soon, which I will be anticipating. Ab Soul’s project is being delayed for who knows why, so we have to live with that. Danny Brown is slowly becoming of those artists that will be getting daily rotation on my end, I may…

Artist Profile – Black Milk

Posted on March 24, 2012

“Here to save the game just like a memory card Memory loss to cali dro To Amsterdam, out on the patio Rockin like a Beatle I should record up in Abbey Road” Now, feel free to hand me a “late pass,” although I didn’t know there was a time frame on when I was allowed to discover artists, but as my story goes, yes, again, I was “sleeping” on another great artist, but of all of the artists that I’ve reviewed on this blog, he’s probably the most talented one, because not only is he a wicked rapper, but he’s an even BETTER producer. The beats that he brings, he uses samples varying from soul to classic rock, to techno, to pretty much whatever he…

Airing of Grievances: XXL Freshmen – Class of 2012

Posted on March 1, 2012

Terrible. That’s all I have to say about that. There were far better rappers out that have had a hell of a lot more play than a vast majority of these people on the cover, but yet, I really don’t know what XXL is seeing with these particular artists. I voiced my displeasure briefly, but I still had to go in-depth and really analyze what kind of asinine decision the editing staff made. So let’s get into the actual people on the cover, if you didn’t know already. French Montana – This guy has BEEN around for at least a while now, so I don’t understand how he makes the Freshmen, but I feel like it’s because he signed with Bad Boy and has been…
