Danny Brown Finally Re-Announces “uknowhatimsayin¿”
With a street date of October 4, the Detroit rapper’s long-awaited fifth album features verses from Run the Jewels, Blood Orange, JPEGMAFIA, and more.
It’s been five months since Danny Brown announced the concept of a new album called You Know What I’m Sayin?, but today we’re getting concrete evidence of it: now stylized “uknowhatimsayin¿,” the record has a release date of October 4, and a quick glance at the track list has us excited for collabs with longtime pals Run the Jewels and extremely-in-demand collaborator JPEGMAFIA, as well as Blood Orange and Flying Lotus.
The first single, “Dirty Laundry,” poses sayin¿ as a relatively composed shift for Brown, who most recently played the role of a lifeless Open Mike Eagle’s chaotic alter ego in OME’s Comedy Central series The New Negroes. “Laundry” is a bit more low key (though the Comedy Central–worthy video may suggest otherwise), with already-memorable production from Q-Tip and Paul White.
Watch the clip below, and expect the LP on October 4 via Warp. You can pre-order it here.
