Danny Brown - X.X.X. (R.I. Review)

Xquisite

Overview
Danny Brown is a Detroit Emcee who after the mild reception of his Hybrid mix-tape, released an incredible follow up LP underneath Fool's Gold Records. Although, Danny Brown pioneers a sort of monster-like delivery (vocal transfer between low brute-like and a shrill yell) Danny Brown's lyricism is undeniably the focal point of his presentation. XXX is the soundtrack of the party that got out of hand. The party your parents were disappointed about your very decision to attend. There is no reserve. "Ready to hit the studio and sh*t all on your mix-tape  naw literally; sh*t all on you mix-tape  Wipe with the credits leave stains on the.." you get the picture. There is very little that is off limits on this album but it is the satire of the music industry throughout that makes the extent of the content tolerable. It refocuses a desire for attention into a mockery of the industrialization of music.
Defining Track
The defining track of his mix-tape is hard to pinpoint. Would it be the most popular release from it? The music video directed by Asap Rocky for "Blunt After Blunt" was the most commercially well received but  the album wasn't geared at being well received. Monopoly was technically the first single off of XXX. 
Monopoly begins with a recording sample of a preemptive fight conversation. Shortly following that, Danny Brown begins attacking mainstream record label politics with wild analogies and clever metaphors. The song transitions into his explanation of his struggles to achieve fame, drug addiction, and bizarre appeal with women. It halts abruptly with a final sex joke.
Final Thoughts
There are several rappers in the business that have a difficult time standing out a fraction of how much Danny Brown does effortlessly. However, he is limited in style. The persona of the brawling party fanatic doesn't allow for the creative range necessary to have a long term appeal. Hopefully Danny Brown will mature as an artist so that his talent won't become unappreciated.
