Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt & Danny Brown Get Real On A Black Milk Beat (Audio)

More than three years ago, A$AP Rocky called the "1Train" to the platform. The moment unified many of the most exciting new artists of the 2010s, on one track, out to do lyrical damage. Taking some of that same crop of talent, Danny Brown—who appeared on the cut, does it... Read more

Action Bronson & Danny Brown Bring The Bad News On An Alchemist Jam (Audio)

Traditionally, Action Bronson favors retro-styled production, whether it's the dusty loops of Tommy Mas or the hazy '60s psychedelia of Party Supplies.

Who better to pair with than Freddie... Read more

Danny Brown – Dope Fiend Rental ft ScHoolboy Q

Danny Brown's Old releases tomorrow, September 30. An early glimpse "Dope Fiend Rental" captures D.B.'s essence.

Duck Down Music unveils their (cool) "Verse Unheard" concept, with label artists and affiliates showing fans acapella verses from upcoming projects.
