Danny Brown: "Change"
Depending on how big of a Blu fan you are, you may have caught his 2008 album with elusive producer mainframe under the moniker Johnson&Jonson. It was an unstructured album with Blu rhyming over obscure, hazy psychedelic rock samples and ended up being one of my favorite albums of that year, and probably my second favorite Blu project to date. Now, Johnson&Jonson are teaming up to produce a new album by the prolific Danny Brown, who always seems to be wearing multiple hats. On their first single, "Change," he dials back his hyped out, grime music-inspired yelp rap, for a surprisingly smooth and subdued style. Their album, which is coming out under the name Danny Johnson, should be out relatively soon.
