While many of us were out and about enjoying the first night of the weekend, an unexpected exchange of disses took place over Twitter between two very unlikely sources. The second show of Pretty Lights massive fall tour promoting Derek’s successful “A Color Map of the Sun” album took place in St. Louis last night and featured Fools Gold Records hip-hop lyricist Danny Brown. Danny, who is running fresh off the release of his highly acclaimed “Old” album, took to Twitter promptly after performing with these tweets:
UPDATE: After doing some digging, we’ve heard that Danny was heckled throughout his set by Pretty Lights fans. He reacted by yelling and throwing his mic into the crowd after they were unresponsive throughout his performance.
As word spread about Danny’s comments, Pretty Lights took to his fans in the wee hours of the morning to share this:
These words apparently didn’t sit well with Danny who responded by saying this about tonights performance in Nashville:
Though we are unsure if Danny Brown has officially been pulled off of Pretty Light’s Nashville bill for tonight, Derek attempted to squash the beef early this morning:
This is a very unfortunate series of events for two artists we both really respect. Sometimes combining the electronic and hip-hop worlds just doesn’t align as planned. We wish the best to both artists.

As we narrow into the release this new track ”Side A (Old)” paints a different side of Danny, a chilled out beat with him laying down relentless line after line until it ends far too soon. From the bangers on the album like tracks like “ODB” and songs sounding completely opposite like this, we should expect a very diverse album. The 19 track record comes out October 8th and you can pre-order it now through iTunes, if you do you get a Free Download of this song “Side A(Old)” instantly.

Detroit based rapper Danny Brown let’s loose the next single “ODB” complete with video from his upcoming debut album Old set to drop September 30th via Fool’s Gold Records. This video captures the extra raw energy Danny manages to convey in the track done through colors changing and scattered text and symbols over the screen. Unique is so an overused word these days, but couldn’t describe Danny more. This only makes me more excited for his new album. Enjoy.

The annual “Hottest MC’s” from MTV has come around again, and Detroit based Danny Brown drops off a track to dimiss the entire list aptly titled #HottestMC. He delivers some powerful almost angry flow throughout the entire track potentially being driven by his lack of placement on the list. The beat produced by Harry Fraud featuring a mood setting sample from UK Amorphous Androgynous. As Danny himself states “That song wasn’t to diss nobody,” ”I just wanted to show niggas I can think of a #Bar or 2 lol.” And that he does. Sit back, enjoy, and wait for his upcoming OLD mixtape.

A$AP Rocky – 1Train (ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.) : Huge Hip-Hop Song from Long Live A$APPosted in Chill by nick | Tags: A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, ASAP Rocky, Big K.R.I.T., Danny Brown, Joey Bada$$, Kendrick Lamar, Yelawolf
I can’t even remember the last time I saw a track with this many amazing artists all packed on one track. A$AP Rocky recruited an all star cast for the next single “1Train” off his upcoming highly anticipated debut album, Long. Live. A$AP which is set to release on January 15th. Following up F*ckin Problems (Ft. 2 Chainz, Drake, Kendrick Lamar) and Goldie. This track features Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, & Big K.R.I.T.. Every single guest rapper destroys their verse, all adding up to make one of the dopest hip-hops to come out in awhile. My only complaint is not hearing enough of A$AP on the track. Turn this up, enjoy!

This internet age has really made it possible for artists all across the board to team up and create something fresh. Here’s an an official collaboration between Canadian indie electronic duo Purity Ring and Detroits’ rising hip rapper Danny Brown. He goes in on a freshened up version of their track “Belispeak”, and the chemistry between his raw style over their dreamy electronic indie vibe. This is easily one of my favorite tracks I have heard from Danny Brown, and we can only hope this is the sign of more tracks together. Also included is the instrumental of the track to for those not interested in Danny’s unique flow and would rather enjoy the smooth indie dream pop beat. Turn it up, enjoy!

A-Trak ft. Donnis, Pill, Danny Brown, CyHi Da Prynce – Ray Ban Vision (Remix) : Sick New Hip-Hop RemixPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: A-Trak, CyHi Da Prince, Danny Brown, donnis, Electronic, Hip-Hop, Pill, Rap
I brought you A-Trak’s collaboration with CyHi Da Prynce Ray Ban Vision about 6 months ago, and now we got a refreshed new remix to the track. Now this isn’t a dj’s remix giving it lots of bass, but instead a hip-hop remix featuring some new verses from new artists. This time the track features Donnis, Pill, and Danny Brown on top of CyHi. The track is as sick as the original with it’s very unique sounding beat, and great flow from the artists. This track should be played loud, turn it up and enjoy!
