Before I ever knew of his music, someone showed me a picture of Danny Brown. The only word that came to mind when I saw it was “goon.” Danny Brown is a straight up goon. His hair looks like something a hipster night club threw up and straightened, his clothing is often too tight and colorful, and he kind of sounds like B.o.b. if he came from an insane asylum. But the awesome thing is this totally works for Danny Brown. Mr. Brown has embraced his over sexualized characteristics and created a persona that is truly unique.
Danny Browns 2011 debut album is entitled XXX and much like the title would imply, it’s almost all about sex, drugs and everything else X-rated. The songs range from to-be-expected Brown sex loving classics like “I Will” to more playful songs like “Radio Song” where Brown calls out the shallowness of popular music. If you don’t have this album already, buy it. If you do, find that special someone and listen to it together doing what Danny Brown loves best… 😉
