Thoughts on Songs with Danny Brown
Dark, truthful rhymes, twisting your mind by bringing you face to face with the facts, how things work and where they can lead you if you don't play this game the wise way and take it easy. Words that are spitted out violently, reaching our ears rapidly, like cold water on our backs by an exceptionally fearless voice.
Not a regular drug-related hip hop song. Fortunately there is Danny speaking about the other side of the things than only praising the hours he's spending being high. True words by a real artist, where he started from, how he's holding on but also acknowledging that he can't go back to the starting point because of any kind of habit. Once more, well done.
