Cartoon Danny Brown Given Oral Tribute on Stage in DJ Muggs’ ‘Headfirst’ Video
Animated shenanigans ensue in "Bass for Your Face" clip
Legendary Cypress Hill wax-slayer DJ Muggs quietly released a new album earlier this year, but there’s nothing quiet about the music contained therein. Bass for Your Face was directly inspired by the Los Angeles beat scene’s open embrace of hard and heavy low end, and the tracks incorporate large doses of the nastiest strains of dubstep heard this side of Skrillex’s debut. When SPIN spoke to Muggs back in January, we heard his trunk-rattling collaboration with Roc Marciano, who he met while visiting Alchemist’s weed-infused L.A. studio. Muggs made a few other friends while he was there and one of those was Danny Brown. The raunchy Detroit MC added his voice to “Headfirst,” which now has its very own animated video. The Monsta-created clip finds the DJ/MC duo on a mission to rock a show, which they appear to do quite successfully. There is marijuana involved, a dancing robot, and at one point Brown is, um, serviced by a female fan while the mike is in his hand (which actually happened). As for the track itself, “Headfirst” trades in TNGHT-style stomp, third-world dance rhythms, and, of course, lots and lots of bass.
