On Monday, Danny Brown (pictured) released his hotly anticipated sophomore record Old. The gap-toothed yap-rapper has risen in the past couple years to become one of the most distinctive faces and voices in the genre, pairing manic-depressive verses about drug abuse and the collapse of his hometown Detroit with unabashed party anthems over merciless beats.
He’ll find a fitting 2 High 2 Die tourmate in fellow Fool’s Gold rapper Action Bronson, whose Harry Fraud-produced EP Saaab Stories came out this spring, and who has built his reputation on the scores of guest verses he’s contributed to everyone from A$AP Rocky to Fat Joe to Chance the Rapper.
Danny Brown and Action Bronson come to Skidmore College’s Williamson Sports Center (815 N. Broadway, Saratoga Springs) tomorrow (Friday) at 8 PM. Tickets are $20. Call 580-5777 for more info.
