CURRENT: Danny Brown feat. Purity Ring – “25 Bucks”

Old, the new studio album from Danny Brown, is available for streaming at Spotify. The album is an intense, frenetic ride along with Danny Brown steering the ship. An early highlight is the Purity Ring-assisted “25 Bucks,” featuring Megan James on the hook and Corin Roddick behind the boards.

“25 Bucks” marks the second collaboration between Brown and Purity Ring, who first teamed up on a remix to Purity Ring’s “Bellispeak.” While immaculately produced, the real highlight of the song is Brown’s rapid-fire verses, where he tells a story of a mom doing her best to keep her kids out of “the state pen or a cemetery buried.” On the bridge, Brown melodically raps, “Now I’m trapped in the trap / And the devil ain’t forgettin’ / Wanna see me dead or locked in a prison / In the system with division only thing that add up / Fucked up cause a nigga tryna get a couple bucks.” This is the sound of Danny Brown, unleashed.
