Gritty, Grimy, Raw: Danny Brown Is Back With “Atrocity Exhibition”

One of hip-hop’s most outlandish artists has returned from a three-year album hiatus to bring us Atrocity Exhibition. The new album was scheduled to be released three days later, but Danny Brown couldn’t resist the urge; dropping the album Tuesday afternoon following a Twitter announcement.

Danny’s previous work came all the way back in 2013 with his hip-hop/EDM crossover Old. Since then, Danny stayed relatively invisible before giving us the gritty banger “When It Rain” in June. Shortly after he released the songs “Pneumonia”, “Tell Me What I Don’t Know”, and the posse cut “Really Doe” (which includes Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, and Earl Sweatshirt) as singles for the album. The 15-song tracklist also includes features from artists such as: Petite Noir, Kelela, and B-Real.

In 2014, Danny said in an interview with the Huffington Post that he wanted his next album to prove he’s the best rapper alive. Almost two years have passed since, but if the singles were any indication – Danny Brown’s vision is still alive on Atrocity Exhibition.
