You can't confuse Danny Brown with any other rapper. His voice leaps from stereo speakers like a garish jack-in-the-box, half-mad and strangulated. Unconventional attire and fascinations aside, what's refreshing about Brown is how at home he seems on varied musical terrain, from hard street cuts to Euro house hybrids, from guitar strewn bangers to straight up indie rock. There's no reason to believe that this Michigan MC isn't capable of literally everything.
