Danny Brown’s ‘Atrocity Exhibition’

Detroit rapper Danny Brown represents the dictionary definition of artistic integrity. He is quite simply his own man, and throughout his highly lauded music career has consistently shown to have the utmost courage of his peculiarities. It is this knack for maintaing a sense of unadulterated originality musically that has earned him a nearly fanatical cult following in addition to much critical acclaim. Danny Brown is a rapper who crafts albums, who cares deeply for the art of curating the correct sonic experience he envisions. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Brown takes time recording albums. It has been nearly three years since his last body of work was released and fan anticipation has since reached a fever pitch. Now, as the summer of 2016 comes to an end, Danny Brown unveiled the cover art and tracklist for his upcoming LP via social media. Boldly entitled ‘Atrocity Exhibition’, his fourth full length album is set to be released September 30th via his new label home at ‘Warp Records’. Per usual the rapper’s eclectic influences are on full display and he recently sat down for an interview with ‘Rolling Stone’, which can be read here: Your text to link… in which he delves deeper into his unique recording process. The name of the album itself, is taken from a song by post-punk band ‘Joy Division’, who themselves titled their original song after a novel by famed British novelist, J.G. Ballard. Furthermore, Brown’s ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ features a slew of fascinating collaborations, including production from The Alchemist, Black Milk, Evian Christ, and Paul White. As far as lyrical features are concerned, the tracklist reveals guest spots from fellow rappers Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt, B-Real of Cypress Hill, and Ab-Soul, in addition to vocals from Kelana and Petite Noir, a singer from Cape Town, South Africa. On top of all that, prior to the release of ‘Atrocity Exhibition’, Danny Brown is set to kick off a US tour starting on September 14th. Ultimately it seems that the devoted fans of the rapper have much to look forward to this fall. While they have had to endure a few years sans new music, as it’s been proven before, a new project from Danny Brown is almost certainly worth the wait.
