Eddie Huang is a lot of things: chef, author, host, raconteur, and (of course!) FG fam. So it’s only natural that he enlisted Danny Brown to record the theme song to his new ABC show Fresh Off The Boat, which premiered last night on ABC. Listen to the Skywlkr-produced track in full now, and tune in to FOTB every Tuesday at 8pm.
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!
Pitchfork TV heads to Detroit with Danny Brown for this new doc Detroit State Of Mind and checks in with his family, hangs out for a haircut, hits the studio with Skywlkr and the Bruiser Brigade, films the Dilla Day show at the Fillmore and more. Check it out…
Wouldn’t it be awesome if the Bruiser Brigade had their own McLaughlin Group roundtable show? News and commentary on the issues of the day… bitch. Until that glorious moment occurs, we’ll have to make do with interviews like this one, where Danny Brown’s go-to producer Skywlkr talks beatmaking, metal and more with the always on-point Passion Of The Weiss. For more Skywlkr beats, check his Bandcamp, and for more POTW Bruiser coverage, check their extremely thorough “making of XXX” piece. (And PBS get at us about the show!)
