As the profane gospel of Danny Brown spreads around the globe, more and more good reviews and pieces keep coming in. (You know we like to recap these!) Check out this great feature from the new issue of Spin (“half battle-scarred street rapper, half Station to Station-era David Bowie”) as well as their Day Off-centric blog post (“Danny Brown’s a guy worth rooting for”), and then see what Fact Magazine had to say about XXX (“completely honest, unrestrained and unmannered…essential listening”). And if you haven’t downloaded the album already to judge for yourself…what are you waiting for?

For more Danny, check his guest appearance on the Das Racist album (out now on iTunes – check them on tour this month) and a massive posse cut remix of Mr Muthafuckin Exquire’s “Huzzah!” that’s a secret track on Exo’s new Lost In Translation release with Mishka.
