Danny Brown, "Pneumonia"

When Danny Brown dropped his fourth studio album Atrocity Exhibition last month, it demonstrated the Detroit rapper's unorthodox approach to music and unveiled some of his personal demons. Delivering visuals as compelling as his musical works, today (Oct. 13) Brown releases the video to his latest single "Pneumonia," the follow up to "When It Rain," which arrived back in June. 

After teasing fans with a clip of "Pneumonia" on Instagram in August, the full visual comes shortly after Atrocity Exhibition's Sept. 27 release. "Made 30 bands in 30 minutes / before I count it I done damn near spent it," Brown raps with his arms and legs bound to chains as his body sways in the air.  Old school staticky television clips are dispersed throughout the video which sees the Detroit rhymer clad in a tan suit speaking behind a podium and clips with crowds of people waving American flags -- a timely reference to the current election season perhaps?
