A few killer singles.
‘When It Rain’ was the first to be dropped with its clip back in June, this club trap track boasts a trippy turnt up AF clip with vibrant colours and old film style shots, overlayed images and short burst clips keep up with the busy and beats.

‘Pneumonia’ featuring a hook and some fun stuff from main man SchoolboyQ, you can’t mistake his signature ‘Yak Yak’.
“made 30 bands in 30 minutes, before I count it I done damn near spent it…” so catchy.
Also reigning shoutout’s to ‘Really Doe’ with Kendrick, Ab Soul and the infamously ill Earl Sweat, we are just hyped to finally see Earl and Kendrick on the same track, that’s rare.

Also among everything, Danny, with a 13 year old daughter of his own is channeling and using his personal experiences as a father into a self esteem book for children, last year he told Triple J the book will draw on the rhyming scheme of Dr Seuss and that “It’s been taking me forever to finish. It’s really about self-esteem in black girls, I guess,” Brown said. “You know how black women do so much — process their hair, change their eye colour. It’s really about a little girl who does all these things to herself and changes herself and she realizes she’s just better off the way she is.” What a sweetheart!
So there you have it.
An album and children’s book coming at you from the mind of Danny Drown.
