Black and Brown!
Critical Mass
Release Date: November 1, 2011
Label: Fat Beats

by Brandon Soderberg

On Danny Brown's recent XXX mixtape, the Internet-beloved MC moved beyond his Detroit hometown's hardhead style, rapping over Hawkwind and This Heat samples in a voice that simultaneously invoked Waka Flocka Flame and Eminem. Here, the "Adderall Admiral" forces fellow Motor City undergrounder Black Milk to bug out and break his mold, as well. On ten songs in just 20 minutes, Black twists prog and BBC radio samples into hissing, even "hypnagogic" hip-hop, then hands the results over to Brown, who shouts suicidal thoughts and sex boasts with wild abandon. One song is called "WTF," which, um, yeah, exactly.
