Danny Brown: "Baseline"

Something about that hair flip makes me think of a skatepunk version of DJ Quik, but that's about the only connection I can make between Danny Brown and any other rapper. He positions himself thematically in the standard "talkin' shit" hip hop archetype, but his actual flow betrays a man so ecstatic with his own iconoclasm that he's barely holding his shit together. That kind of smug self-confidence would be fatal to a lesser talent, but Brown is the real deal Holyfield. Now all you hookers and hoes know how I feel.
