This Tuesday hit iTunes and grab “Piss Test,” a speaker-detonating slice of gleefully antisocial Parental Advisory rap from A-Trak, Juicy J and Danny Brown. It’s the first teaser off Loosies, the upcoming Fool’s Gold hip hop compilation. Play this at high volume, preferably in a residential neighborhood.
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.
