Danny Brown's Atrocity Exhibition Coming September 30th
Biz 3: 40 DATE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR STARTS SEPTEMBER 14th
Detroit native and reigning ambassador of psychotropic outsider rap, Danny Brown has announced his new album Atrocity Exhibition will drop on September 30th via Warp. Brown hinted at the release of his highly-anticipated third studio album last week with the release of a teaser for album track "Pneumonia" and prior with the widely praised single and accompanying video for "When it Rain".
As Danny Brown told Rolling Stone, "I wanna make timeless stuff, so you're gonna have to spend a couple dollars. You could have Rolex or you can have a Swatch."
In support of Atrocity Exhibition, Danny Brown will embark on a journey across North America for 40+ dates on "The Exhibition 2016" Tour. Support for the live show includes Bruiser Brigade protege Zelooperz, along with Maxo Kream. Tickets for participating dates include download of "When It Rain" and come with a digital copy of Atrocity Exhibition upon release. Tickets available at http://xdannyxbrownx.com/.
The album is a fresh and bold take on Brown's ruminations on life and the changes that have occurred -and those that didn't -following the ups and downs of career success. Atrocity Exhibition makes for a thrilling third installment in the Danny Brown biopic, following the releases of his critically acclaimed and groundbreaking Fool's Gold albums XXX and Old, sold out shows around the world including opening for Eminem at Wembley Stadium, and collaborations with an eclectic range of artists such as Ghostface Killah, Purity Ring, Rustie, Charli XCX, E-40,the Avalanches and more.
Brown's words can be found further amplified on this album with massive beats and production by frequent collaborator Paul White and additional contributions from Evian Christ, The Alchemist and Black Milk. Featured guest vocals come from label-mate Kelela, Cypress Hill member B-Real, Petite Noir and contributing to perhaps the most standout crew cut from recent memory on the song "Really Doe", Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul and Earl Sweatshirt. Pairing his views on the irreconcilable differences between the future and the realities of the present, Danny Brown's Atrocity Exhibition presents a sonic prism, with intricate use of story-telling and wordplay, showcasing his truly unique art form and pushing him past the boundaries of rap.
Atrocity Exhibition is available worldwide on September 30th via Warp.
PRESS PRAISE FOR "WHEN IT RAIN"
"He is unmatchable in flow, delivery, and voice. Danny Brown has all the tools to be the greatest working rapper." - PITCHFORK
"...the urgent grime of Dizzee Rascal, the pulse of classic techno and house and the no-holds-barred energy of contemporary Southern rap. It's one of Brown's most defining moves to date, and has us desperate to hear the full album." - FACT
"Judging by Brown's raps over the deranged oboe sample of "When It Rain" this project is going to be extra lit." - HOT NEW HIP HOP

Wanja: Thomas Prime and Cult Classic Records present "Cult Classic Remixes", a selection of remixes Thomas Prime has been working on for the past couple of years. Nearly all of them are official and most have never been remixed before.
Cokeboys: Red Mcfly drops his first video in months after taking a brief break from releasing music to focus more on producing. Some of the artists we've seen record vocals on his hard hitting and soulful beats include Chinx, French Montana, Shyne, Peedi Crakk, Kanye West, Tony Sunshin, Lil Flip and more.
Matt: To say REKS took the underground rap scene by storm would be an understatement, as over the course of his first decade on the scene he was the definition of consistent, unleashing three consecutive albums that firmly established him as one of hip-hopís most revered new artists: Along Came The Chosen, Grey Hairs (primarily produced by Statik Selektah with additional production from DJ Premier & Large Professor), Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme (which debuted on the Billboard charts and included production from Statik Selektah, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Hi-Tek, Nottz, Sha Money XL & Sean C & LV).
A.R.: Continuing off of the success of his highly anticipated debut album "My Orbit", Chief is back with out of this world visuals for "Got Em", a head nodding, adrenaline pumping classic. Chief, a Portland native, has become a fairly familiar face in the Northwest Hip-Hop/Rap scene as of late.
DD: Already on the heels of his February release #FOOD2, Brooklyn Bred Muzik artist Dapa Don , offers up some heat in the summer with the sultry ode to the "get money" ladies with "She Gettin To The Money".
Wanja: Lots of people say that Adam ruined everything for humans when he ate the apple. I mean if it wasn't for him, then we'd be able to see the goods of anyone who we secretly lust over without feeling ashamed; we'd just be seeing them in all their glory.
