[Audio] Danny Brown – “Radio Head”

Detroit’s quickly blowing up emcee Danny Brown dropped this single via his Twitter this morning. If you hop over to his account now, you’ll see his feed is popping with RT’s from all over the hip-hop world–cold hard proof that both fans and content makers alike are pretty much freaking out over this short but potent hot-off-the-mixing-boards bounce, produced by Ann Arbor producer Samiyam who is best known for his collaborations with Flying Lotus. I’m not sure whether Samiyam wrote the blurb on his Wiki page or not, but his beats are described as “8-bit video game inspired,” which strikes me as a pretty astute description. And Danny is lyrically on point as usual, busting out an extended bit on American politicians and thinkers (Hoover, Jefferson, Einstein and Edison) and pointing out that his bitches are “wetter than whale piss” and “chargin’ head first like Rhino.” We are just mammals, after all.

If you haven’t heard The Hybrid, Danny’s debut album released in 2010, you should hop over to Bandcamp now and do that. It’s pretty awesome. ┬áStream “Radio Head” below and download after the jump.
