Danny Brown has recently released a video for one of the arguable high points on his acclaimed uknowhatimsayin¿ album. 3 Tearz features his friends and previous collaborators, Run The Jewels, plus some fire production from JPEGMAFIA, who Danny has become close with over the last couple of years. The video was directed by Colin Read and features, in Danny’s words, “100 camera-wielding bruisers, some champagne & a couple of blunts”. uknowhatimsayin¿ is out now on Warp Records.

Another piece in the puzzle that is Danny Brown’s new album, which is due for release on Friday. On the latest single, the Detroit rapper calls in his pals Run The Jewels, as the three of them lace a wild beat from JPEGMAFIA. The track is taken from uknowhatimsayin¿, which is due for release on Warp Records.
The anticipation for Danny Brown’s new album has been building steadily over the last few months, even more so since he unveiled the list of contributors involved, including the likes of Q-Tip, Run The Jewels, JPEGMAFIA, Blood Orange and Flying Lotus, who takes on the role of executive producer. Dirty Laundry is our first peek at what the project holds in store, with Q-Tip laying down a wonderfully twisted beat for Danny to get to work on. The video is class too, as the Detroit MC takes on the role of what looks like a washed-up old lounge singer to great comedic effect. The album, uknowhatimsayin¿, is due for release on 4 October via Warp Records.

Open Mike Eagle recently debuted his new comedy series, The New Negroes, a show which he has put together with comedian and actor, Baron Vaughn. The show features a blend of stand up, sketches and music, as demonstrated in this new video which Comedy Central released a few days ago. In it we see Mike trying his best to hold his tongue in his workplace and beyond, before things get too much and he unleashes his unfiltered self, in the form of Danny Brown. The track is produced by Bionik.
Dirty 8-Bit sounds on the new track from Michigan producer, Dabrye. He enlists a triumvirate of distinct MCs for The Appetite, with Roc Marciano, Quelle Chris and Danny Brown, all sounding as on point as ever. The track is taken from Dabrye’s upcoming album, Three/Three, which is due for release mid-February. The rest of the album features a load more heavy hitters, including Guilty Simpson, Ghostface and DOOM, so definitely one to watch out for. More news on that soon.
Not only did yesterday produce a new RTJ single, it also finally gave us a release date for the long awaited third instalment from the duo.

The official release date is now 3 January 2017, with more info here.
