Hear Danny Brown’s Diplo-Inspired Twerk Tribute ‘#ExpressYourself’

Danny Brown #ExpressYourself 'Trampy' Twerking Diplo

As Diplo’s just-shy-of-a-million Twitter followers are no doubt very familiar, the in-demand producer has given the so-called twerk a wholehearted embrace. Shortly after releasing his “Express Yourself” single featuring New Orleans bounce star Nicky Da B, the man born Thomas Wesley Pentz launched his #ExpressYourself contest. The winner were announced in June of last year, but that hasn’t stopped his female fans from keeping the hashtag alive by tweeting him pictures of their asses in the air. The Major Lazer-maker’s impressive feat has inspired Danny Brown to create a new song called “#ExpressYourself” — not surprising when you revisit the Detroit MC’s wonderfully raunchy XXX, or any other song he’s released. In any case, you can stream the man’s tribute below, which is produced, naturally, by someone named Trampy. As one might expect, Brown is fairly graphic in explaining the extent of his inspiration, giving a quick shout-out to Diplo in the beginning before directing the rest of his gnarly barks at whatever women happen to be listening. Scrubs samples abound.
