The first full-length release from Danny since his acclaimed The Hybrid in 2010, XXX is a concept record about hedonism, growing up, and Detroit, taking listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through the uncensored mind of rap’s most electric MC. There’s no laundry list of guest appearances or producers-for-hire, keeping the focus squarely on Danny and his rhymes: a triple stack of pop culture references and did-he-really-say-that? provocations atop the heart of a poet.
“The most peculiarly infectious voice since Dizzee Rascal.” – Pitchfork
“Obsessed with words in an era that doesn’t support laboring over lyrics, Brown is reinterpreting hip-hop his own way.” – The Fader
