With all of its trappy percussion, wobbling synth, and micro-chopped melodies, it's not much of a stretch to turn Purity Ring's "Belispeak" into a woozy hyper-modern rap track. Here, the Shrines standout is given a slight reworking to make room for SPIN's favorite spitter of 2011, Danny Brown. In keeping with the song's theme, the Detroit MC raps about the hunger in his tummy that drives him to do what he does. Brooklyn Vegan has the download of "Belispeak II," which is streaming below. Beyond that, find Purity Ring's extensive tour dates.
