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.
