Danny Brown is one of the most sought-after (and selective) guest MCs in the game for good reason: get the Bruiser boss on your track and it goes from merely good to all-caps exclamation point STYLE! in the course of a few bars. Check the man in action in this hyperactively HD vid for Rustie’s “Attak,” then follow it up with his appearance on Lucki Eck$ new one “Weightin On,” produced by DB partner in crime Skywlkr. Be sure to grab Danny’s own new EP for Smokin & Drinkin, out now with a gang of crazy remixes (pic disc vinyl on the way too!) and hit fgdayoff.com to see Danny rock with us at the Fool’s Gold Day Off shows starting 9/1 in New York. Don’t sleep on tix!
