One of hip-hop's boldest and most original star.

Brown's latest LP, 'Atrocity Exhibition', is one of the freshest and boldest-sounding rap albums in recent memory, a sonic swirl inspired by the work of Talking Heads and Joy Division that nonetheless sounds like nothing else from the past or present. 

Brown’s fourth studio album is the latest peak in a career full of highlights: over the last decade, he’s worked with a breadth of artists from Purity Ring and Rustie to Schoolboy Q, E-40, and Ghostface Killah.

The intricate wordplay, unmatched storytelling, and lyrical thoughtfulness of Atrocity Exhibition further cements Danny Brown as not only one of rap’s brightest lights, but one of the most consistently inventive artists working in popular music right now. The record represents an unbelievable artistic peak, as well as a crystallization of an aesthetic that doubles as a definitive realization of self. 

Danny is an unconventional hip-hop artist who employs multiple flows and cadences. Known for his cutting social commentary and deeply personal narratives, he has cemented himself as a true original within the genre today.
