Danny Brown - uknowhatimsayin LP

Warp

Uknowhatimsayin? marks a buoyant new chapter in Danny Brown's career, a transitional and celebratory moment. His profile has grown since Atrocity and now armed with a cable TV show and a co-sign from one of rap's icons, he solidifies his positioning as a ubiquitous entertainer, independent rap hero, and one of the essential cultural voices of this era, while still retaining the edgy, maverick style that makes him a fan-favorite. Uknowhatimsayin? was executive produced by Q-Tip, includes guest appearances by Run The Jewels, Blood Orange and Obongjayar, and boasts production by Q-Tip, JPEGMAFIA, Flying Lotus, Paul White and Standing on the Corner. "This is my version of a stand-up comedy album," Brown says. "Most of my close friends now aren't rappers – they're comedians and actors. So I wanted to create something that mixed humor with music. Something that was funny but not parody. There was no room for error. Q-Tip wanted me to go back to that 'Greatest Rapper Ever' era. I almost had to relearn how to rap again – an ego death type thing."
