mp3: Dvnny Seth – Prespliffs (ft. Pradda) (prod. Treekeeper)

First impressions are everything and UK rapper Dvnny Seth is pulling off one hell of a first impression with ‘Prespliffs’.  After giving us all the summer bangers we could have ever asked for, Treekeeper is back to provide Dvnny the perfectly energetic instrumental to layout his crazed, cartoonish persona that comes across like everyone’s favorite adderall injected Danny Brown.  Sure, by dedicating most of his rhymes to the green stuff, Dvnny isn’t breaking any new ground lyrically but the way he delivers his verses with an incredibly thick, confidence-laced accent with a clear grime influence is something that isn’t easy to pull off.  M|O|D associated rapper Pradda steals the track though with the best verse I’ve heard from him yet.  The coolest thing about this track is that it clearly wouldn’t have been possible without the internet as it connected two rappers and a producer across two countries.  That’s pretty darn cool.


Video: Darq E Freaker – Blueberry (Feat. Danny Brown)

If you watched Danny Brown on Pitchfork’s “Selector” you may know of Danny’s appreciation for the UK’s gritty Grime hip-hop scene and his interest to work with Darq E Freaker.  Now, that collaboration has actually materialized, and it is as gritty and grimey as anyone could have imagined.  Darq E Freaker provides a woozily aggressive beat and Danny matches it pretty well with a couple of pretty simple verses dealing exclusively with the subject of drug abuse and a hook that gets pretty straight to the point.  Danny clearly has strong ambitions of expanding the horizons of the U.S. rap culture, and if songs like this and “Piss Test” with Juicy J and A Trak get enough attention, that goal could easily be achieved.
