Danny Brown is clearly out here living his music, as the Detroit rapper has dropped a new feel-good track called “Best Life”.
The song is the latest single from his forthcoming record, uknowhatimsayin¿, which was executive-produced by Q-Tip. The A Tribe Called Quest icon’s touch can be felt all over “Best Life”, its sun-drenched street vibes breaking through a bubbly beat with sampled strings and carefree “la la la” vocals. It’s a celebration of moving on from hard days when Brown “used to bag up the weed, and live on for the count,” and getting to a point where he “bought myself a new spot and I never got lonely.”
The follow-up to 2016’s Atrocity Exhibition, uknowhatimsayin¿ is due out October 4th through Warp Records. Guests include Run the Jewels, Blood Orange, Obongjayar, and JPEGMAFIA, with additional production coming from Flying Lotus, Paul White, and Standing on the Corner.
