So far this is my favorite song of 2016 I think. It’s been more than a decade since The Avalanches dropped Since I Left You and now they prepare to release Wildflower, almost out of nowhere. The first single features a funky calypso bounce, incomparable vocals provided by Danny Brown and MF Doom and made complete with Wilmoth Houdini sample. If this is what we have to look forward to then this album might be just as ground breaking as their debut effort. Wildflower will be released on July 8th.
The posse cut from Long.Live.A$AP features what many consider the new wave of Hip-Hop doing what thye do best over some Hit-Boy production. The best of the young bucks in the game go in. Enjoy.
Detroit Ambassador House Shoes is reissuing Danny Brown’s Hot Soup via his label Street Corner Music this Saturday for Record Store Day (April 19th for those who need a number style date). The first of 5 bonus cuts from the re-issue is this Nick Speed produced gem “Streets Of Detroit”. This is a must have! Before he was the Hybrid or XXX he was tearing up the mixtape scene in Detroit, come see what made him say “they want that Old Danny Brown”.
Some visuals from my favorite track off Danny Brown’s Old album. Danny takes us on a ride through his Detroit childhood home. 2013, saw Fools Gold records release arguably the top two hip-hop albums of the year (See Run The Jewels). Danny is carving out quite a niche for himself, his first three releases have all been very solid, insuring that whenever he drops something new people will be checking.
Danny Brown is and always will be DAT DUDE.
“Danny was my longshot for this project. By the time I got moving on this he’d already signed with Fool’s Gold and was about to drop XXX, which would establish him as one of the fiercest MC’s out. I emailed and DM’d to no avail. One day I decided to try something really crazy and picked up the phone and called him. The stars were aligned and a rapper actually answered his phone. In all of two minutes he agreed to cut a track. I emailed him a .zip of beats I’d culled from the homies and about a week later I got a sendspace link entitled “SWEENY SONG.” He had taken a Mndsgn beat and absolutely ripped it to shreds. It’s been so long since he cut it that it now sounds like vintage Danny to me, which of course I love. I fixed the typo in the title and ran with it.”
Houseshoes debut album, Let It Go, is out now and it represents some real hip-hop ish. The album is laced with goodness, but this is definitely my favorite track. Danny catches wreck on all 2 minutes and some change of the track. Dropping gem after gem until you’re pretty much just ready to concede defeat when the song ends and sends you on your way. Detroit, stand all the way up! If you have no purchased Houseshoes album, run out to iTunes or where ever your disrespectful self picks up music and make immediate amends for your transgressions.
“So hood, blow blunts with my baby momma’s new baby daddy” – end of story
