Danny Brown x Radio Song

We have been fans of Danny Brown since The Hybrid since then he has signed to one of the best labels around Fools Gold. In doing so they gave him the space to be him and in turn he made one of the best albums of last year XXX. In keeping with the fact that he has the space to do what he wants, Fools Gold release the video for his anti radio song called Radio Song. Danny highlights the pressure that artists feel to make a carbon copy hit single. Even though he’s joking i totally would love to see him do a song called Black and Emo.

You can also check out Dj Ayres cheeky edit of the track here.
