Danny Brown is a hip-hop artist and a rapper from Detroit whose stylistic choices have been zig-zagging between a rousing, crowd-pleasing hip-hop (see Old) and his more experimental, dissonant, and disquieting work (see XXX, Atrocity Exhibition). His music has gone to different kinds of dark places when he is in the latter mode. In the former, he can be fairly rowdy and explicit, documenting aspects of a life lived on the extremes, euphemistically speaking. He typically has a rapid fire delivery that pushes his music into a frantic pace at times. His later work, uknowhatimsayin¿, though relatively restrained, still displays his wild, bouncing-off-the-walls energy, but with a more deliberate approach to production, which is often attributed to the producer, Q-Tip.
