Danny Brown’s “Old” is anything but | Album review

Danny-Brown-Old-artworkDetroit rapper Danny Brown’s “Old” — the newly released follow-up to his breakout 2011 opus of drugs, sex and desperation, “XXX” has a double meaning to its title.

On one hand it refers to his age and unconventional career arc, only rapping “seriously” since 2007 after serving jail time for charges caught while selling drugs as a teen, and being 30 years old when “XXX” dropped. On the other, it’s a shot at the former fans and rap nerds decrying his post-“XXX” shift in sound from more gritty dopeman narratives to electronic-leaning, molly-popping party rap.
