On the heels of sharing “Dirty Laundry” earlier in September, Danny Brown returned on Tuesday (Sept. 17) with another Q-Tip-produced single in “Best Life.” The Detroit native is full speed ahead toward the release of his anticipated Uknowhatimsayin¿ album, which drops on Oct. 4.
Brown descriptively narrates his rugged come up from the soil. “Come from the sewer where hot dogs got boiled/ Right up in the same pot, uncooked, the rock/ Went from flippin’ them mats, to flippin’ them sacks/ Hide and seek, send spots to out on, we sell crack, facts,” he raps over the triumphant production.
The Exhibition Atrocity artist had already been performing the previously unreleased track at concerts throughout the summer. Brown kicks off his North American tour in Atlanta on Oct. 12 following the album’s release. Uknowhatimsayin¿ will feature assists from JPEGMafia, Blood Orange, Standing On the Corner, and Run the Jewels.
