[Verse 5: Danny Brown]

from A$AP Rocky (Ft. Action Bronson, Big KRIT, Danny Brown, Joey BADA$$, Kendrick Lamar & Yelawolf) – 1 Train Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Danny Brown is a Detroit rapper with a strangled yap of a voice that you could politely call “distinctive.” For a rapper, choosing an abrasive voice like this as your instrument is an audacious move; it all but demands that you come well-equipped with compelling reasons for your listeners to hang on.

Danny’s breakthrough mixtape XXX caused a stir in 2011, with solid hooks on tracks like Lie4 and Monopoly which fittingly, Brown just goes off in his strangulated, nasal verses about your shitty mixtapes and his awesomeness, delivered in language that’s 95% NSFW. Your reward for getting to the end? Having Cool Ranch Doritos ruined forever. Highly recommended to play around authority figures, in other words.

Although this is the first track he’s been on with Rocky, they did a hella funny series on Noisey called Back and Forth. Check it out.

He also had one of the best videos of 2012 with Grown Up. A$AP Rocky also video produced his Monopoly music video.
