Danny Brown - "When It Rain"

Somewhere along the line I finally crossed over into Danny Brown fandom. All I remember is that I didn't like him at all...until I did. It might have had something to do with 2012's feel good throwback track, "Grown Up," or maybe it had...EVERYTHING to do with 2012's feel good throwback track "Grown Up." I'll never tell! The following year he released Old, the record that truly put him on the map. He's been relatively quiet since then, hard at work on his followup since March of 2014 (check out what he's been up to here, courtesy of www.hotnewhiphop.com). Needless to say, it's been a treat finally getting our hands on some new solo material. "When It Rain," sporting a spastic and sinister beat, packs a punch as Brown steps into it on fire. More than his flow, I dig his life on the track, it's imposing and confident. The new album, which still doesn't have a title, is set to be released later this year.
