You were probably already stoked for September 30th, because Danny Brown's much-delayed Old will be released then, and also because according to Glenn Beck, America will sink into the ocean. DB's certainly rapping like it's the apocalypse in his video for “ODB,” his fiendish new single produced by Paul White, Brown's “favorite producer to work with.” The instrumental veers like a filthy Jeep driven by Brown in the drugged out state he's rapping about, full of pills and a purpose, which is to get more fucked up. It's much better than “Kush Coma” and the more Danny works with UK producers the happier I'll be. Pitchfork's reporting that Old will feature appearances by “A$AP Rocky, Purity Ring, Charli XCX, Freddie Gibbs, Schoolboy Q, Rustie, A-Trak, and SKYWLKR.” Most of them aren't from Britain at the moment, but you never know what could happen.
