Listen to Danny Brown – “Change”


His haircut is truly his most impressive attribute (because it certainly is not his teeth), but Danny Brown’s hip-hop flows are definitely a close second. This track originally appeared on It’s a Art, a 2010 collection released exclusively on Tumblr. However, it will officially appear again on his upcoming album “Danny Johnson,” whose exact release date is still TBD. His 2011 disc, XXX, was ranked #1 by SPIN as top rap album of the year and should enable him to capitalize on this release.

The Detroit-based talent brings smooth, almost comforting vibes in this balanced tune. This is in contrast to his traditionally style of recording hyper-pitched vocals. This track has a simple enough beat with just the right amount of minimalist background effects to keep you gliding. We hope that the rest of the tracks on the future record are similarly gratifying.
