Danny Brown believes rap is losing its edge to the mainstream and that nobody wants to "be the smart guy." Instead of complaining, though, the Detroit emcee is acting as the change he'd wish to see in the world.
Early Monday morning, Brown gave Hot 97 radio host Peter Rosenberg the green light to premiere his Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Earl Sweatshirt-assisted "Really Doe" record, undoubtedly the most highly-anticipated track from his forthcoming Atrocity Exhibition album.
Listening to Rosenberg repeatedly talk over the clean, radio-ready version of the record was rather annoying, especially if you couldn't mentally block out his muted ad-libs and station plugs, but now that we have been blessed with the CDQ version of the track it's clear the "four horsemen" don't disappoint.
While Kendrick will naturally receive most of the headlines because Kendrick, and both Brown and Ab-Soul impress, it only takes one listen to the Black Milk-produced "Really Doe" to determine that the winner of this epic posse cut is Earl Sweatshirt.
You a mouse that the falcon picked up/ So disrespect and gettin' checked like the top of the month/ I was a liar as a kid so now I'm honest as fuck/ And I never passed my mama no blunt, I kept my head straight
Damn. Earl just keeps reminding us he's great.
