CURRENT: Danny Brown – “When It Rain”

Old was Danny Brown at his most presentable, a binary collection of tracks – one side laced with old-school rap tracks, the other electronic-based incisions – that proved Brown could reach a larger audience. He retreats on the first single of his upcoming LP, the uncompromising, fully-formed “When It Rain.” The beat is a brutish, assertive thing, while Brown skates atop the burning embers in a typical dexterous and fluid vocal performance. On “When It Rain,” Danny Brown lets us come to him – showing us a world we might not want to inhabit, but one we can’t – and shouldn’t – ignore.

Danny Brown’s follow-up to 2013’s Old appears to be imminent.
