DANNY BROWN – BEST LIFE

Danny Brown has dropped a new single called ‘Best Life.’  While it’s a shame that he’s referencing such a common phraseological parasite with the title, the new Q-Tip-produced track is every bit as entertaining as the last [namely ‘Dirty Laundry‘.  They’ll both feature on Brown’s forthcoming album, ‘uknowhatimsayin¿’, out October 4 on Warp Records.

‘2020’ is the second single to come from Kojey Radical’s upcoming album ‘Cashmere Dreams’ [Feb 13]. The track sees Kojey ruminate on the success he imagined for himself versus what he’s achieved so far; a starkly honest approach compared to the braggadocio of many of his peers.
