Danny Brown is on fire: after announcing the “Worst Of Both Worlds” Tour with chart-topping DJ phenomenon Baauer (culminating with sure-to-be triumphant Coachella performances), the Detroit superstar leaked “#HottestMC,” a controversial response to MTV’s list of the same name that instantly garnered praise everywhere from Pitchfork (hailing it as “a devastating slice of messiah-rap meant for an age of false prophets”) to lyrical peers like Kendrick Lamar (who instantly tweeted, “Danny Brown killin this new track. Hard. Uncut tho.”)
Danny’s hot streak will continue to blaze all this spring on the “Old & Reckless” Tour, his first ever solo headlining trek following back-to-back sold-out US tours supporting A$AP Rocky and Childish Gambino. Fellow rap rule-breaker Kitty will open each date, and fans will be the first to hear new songs from Danny’s eagerly anticipated new Fool’s Gold full-length Old, featuring guest appearances from Schoolboy Q, Charli XCX, Rustie and more.

There is only one direction to turn, boys and girls of America, and that direction is up. TURNUP TURNUP TURNUP!

Fader spilled the beans this morning, check out the tour dates (culminating with Coachella slots for both) and rock with these gents when they roll through.
