A TAV Curator’s Pick.

“Danny Brown’s XXX is a concept record about hedonism, growing up, and Detroit, taking listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through the uncensored mind of rap’s most electric MC. There’s no laundry list of guest appearances or producers-for-hire, keeping the focus squarely on Danny and his rhymes: a triple stack of pop culture references and did-he-really-say-that? provocations atop the heart of a poet. Among it’s near universal critical acclaim, Spin named XXX their rap album of the year and The Fader and XXL featured Danny on the cover. Fool’s Gold recently re-released the record in a deluxe edition with bonus tracks, and a 2xLP vinyl version is on the way.” - Fool’s Gold Records

“Pitchfork Media placed the album at number 19 on its list of the "Top 50 albums of 2011", while Spin named it the top hip-hop album of 2011. In October 2013, Complex named XXX the eighth best hip hop album of the last five years.

In June 2016, Pitchfork Media placed the album at number 3 on its list of the "50 Best Rap Mixtapes of the Millennium".” – Wiki

“The audacious Detroit rapper with a strangled voice and a penchant for depravity transforms his jagged edges into a compelling and immersive universe. Brown's voice is uniquely suited to conveying wild-eyed, loose-cannon insanity, and the rising note of panic in it makes every mention of snorting crushed Adderall hurt.” - Pitchfork

“XXX is given depth and longevity by a tension, or collision between hardcore rap’s reality fix and the avant-garde’s desire for creative and expressive freedom from reality. This Internet and drug-fueled collision has reinvigorated outsider interest in underground rap in the last few years (see: Odd Future, Main Attrakionz and, of course, Lil B) and XXX might just represent the most polished and fully formed manifestation of street-meets-art rap so far. It is, in any case, essential listening.” - FACT Magazine
