04/danny brown/atrocity exhibition
Present day Danny Brown is sitting pretty. He's got four bank cards and a crib that attracts deer in the front. He's living good and selling out shows from Cancun to Spokane, but all of that's not important. Those are just material things, the trappings of celebrity. And Danny is not here for just that. What's more important are the things that got him to this point. What matters most is the reason why all the bitches know his name from Cancun to Spokane: that talent. Those bars. "I just wanna make music, fuck being a celebrity, cause these songs that I write leave behind my legacy!". And what a legacy the man continues to build, as Atrocity Exhibition is another unfuckwitable entry into the man's catalog. Atrocity Exhibition is yet another fearless showcase from a man rapping as if he is (a) the best rapper alive, without peer (b) the most adventurous & creative rapper alive (c) Hip-Hop Personified, and (d) his life depends on it. The beat selection, the energy, and that flow are truly unique, and of top shelf quality that few of his peers in the game can match. And he knows it, feeds off of it in order to eat other rappers alive like a fucking last steak. But Atrocity Exhibition is not just about them or that. It's about the love of the rap game, and the joy of creating and cooking in the lab. It's an exhibition for seizing the moment and going in; diving into the deep end; that get on up, up on the floor, please believe.
Really doe, like really doe.
