Pac blood By Danny Brown
If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you might have seen me mention the name Danny Brown…a lot. THat’s because he’s one of my favorite rappers doing it right now and , well, I like spreading the word. After a bunch of great mixtapes, and last years fantastic “The Hybrid” album, he’s recently dropped a new album titled “XXX”. It’s actually free, so feel free to forego this one song and just download the entire album over at Fools gold records
Anyway, I like the album a lot. I’m happy to see that he gotten both darker and weirder. With rappers you never really know what direction they’re gonna go. Especially ones on the cusp of blowing up who could easily go the Wiz Kalifa route and fuck up they’re entire career. But Brown didn’t do anything remotely like that. He made an album full of all sorts of songs ranging from hilarious punchline laden verses to introspective songs about real shit to some great abstract weirdo shit.
The song I chose to put up is “Pacs blood”. It’s pretty much just D.B. doing his thing. I’d say it’s one of the more accessible song son the album so it’s a good starting point for those of you who might be skeptical. I also like how they took that famous old sample (Nautilus) and totally gave it a new twist. That’s no easy feat, considering that may very well be the most sampled song in hip hop ever.
