Danny Brown has one of the most distinctive voices in hip-hop and, when he’s in full flow, is seriously impressive. The Detroiter might be best known to the mainstream as the guy who raps the theme to Fresh off the Boat, but he’s been making waves since his 2010 full length debut The Hybrid. That record forced him into the ears of hip-hop heads nationwide but it was his third album, 2013’s Old, where he really hit his stride. Receiving mass critical acclaim, the likes of Purity Ring and A$AP Rocky guested on what was arguably that year’s best hip-hop release. His latest, U Know What I’m Sayin?, dropped earlier this month and it’s typically brilliant. This L.A. set should be stellar.
Danny Brown plays at 9 p.m. on Friday, October 25 at the Regent.
