DANNY BROWN+ ZELOOPERZ
Danny Brown’s fourth studio album Atrocity Exhibition (his debut release via Warp) 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. Since the release of Old, he’s contributed the theme song to the hit ABC comedy Fresh Off the Boat, hopped on the explosive posse track “Detroit Vs. Everybody” with Eminem, Dej Loaf, Royce da 5’9”, Big Sean, and Trick Trick; this year, he lent his distinctive energy to “Frankie Sinatra,” the first single from legendary production team the Avalanches’ first album in more than a decade, Wildflower.
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.
