It was an easy decision to include Danny Brown in SPIN's Real Hottest MCs in the Game list earlier this month. His 2011 stunner XXX is still in our playlist rotation, and his own "#HottestMC" track made the case loud and clear. He's also got a highly anticipated new album on the way dubbed Old, most likely out in August on Fool's Gold Records, from which the freshly leaked "Kush Coma" hails.
Produced by Brown's go-to beatsmith Skywlkr, the darkly thumping trunk-rattler indeed sounds sufficiently weeded, but Danny comes across as sharp as ever, making good on his promise to "elevate at 90 miles an hour." He shouts out ecstasy and codeine, includes some callbacks to his fan-favorite refrain "blunt after blunt after blunt," and even admits that with "all these drugs up in me it's a miracle I ain't there with Kurt," but nobody could possibly be high out of their minds and rap this well. (Right?) In its final form, this track will feature A$AP Rocky as well, but the "Kush Coma" is doing just fine without the Harlem rapper. Stream it below, after a note from the artist:
