Danny Brown - When It Rain

You can't help but be carried along in his supercharged rush.

You can't help but be carried along in his supercharged rush.



Next-Level-Banger



'When It Rain' is peak Danny Brown. Manic, frenzied and intense it's the sound of a rapper unleashed and it sounds unlike anything else on the planet. In short, it's brilliant.

Considering he's been absent for almost 3 years after killing off 'The old Danny Brown' on his 2013 album 'Old', the rapper has a lot to say and a lot of energy to expel. That's when he's at his most dangerous and exciting.

The flow is breathless and you can't help but be carried along in his supercharged rush. The doomy ominous dread of production maestro Paul White's sparse beats perfectly set the scene for Brown to cut loose, frantically spitting out his rhymes at a hundred miles an hour. Times are hard and 'When It Rain' is Danny Brown's response to a time of uncertainty, fear and dread. Like his approach to everything his response is to take things to the next level. This is just his opening salvo. Martyn Young
