The Fader just premiered the new Danny Brown track “Grown Up,” a free download courtesy of Scion A/V (who also pressed it on a limited vinyl 7″ you can find at select Danny tour dates). This Party Supplies-produced headnodder is the autobiographical origin story of a daredevil MC, chronicling Danny’s rise from misfit lunchroom battler to the radioactive rap hero he is today. (Special shout out to DJ Shiftee on the scratch chorus, and Dust La Rock on the sleeve as always.) Grab it here, and for more from Danny’s childhood, check him talking Spice1 and more with the inimitable Narduar in a video interview from SXSW after the jump.
This week’s print edition of the Village Voice has a nice chunk devoted to our homies Party Supplies and Action Bronson, and their recent collab Blue Chips (which you can download for free right here). It’s all online too: in the first article, they talk about the general creative process that led to their smoked out mini-masterpice, then in part two Party Supplies explains his YouTube to MPC sampling techniques. Read up on your read ups! And for more Blue Chips props, check out what Stereogum had to say when they named it Mixtape Of The Week.
