Jimmy Edgar Taps Danny Brown For ‘Get Up’
The Jimmy Edgar Danny Brown Get Up: Detroit producer Jimmy Edgar brought Danny Brown out from the shadows for another two-pack he delivered prior this morning.
Some of you might be comfortable with the producer’s prior work on Vince Staples’ Big Fish Theory, loaning his brand of glitchy electronic-infused beats to the song “745.”
The beat seems like a machine reeling out percussion and electronic challenges. However Danny Brown is no more peculiar to discovering his pocket in eccentric beats.
Edgar’s beat makes an inauspicious backdrop for Danny Brown to beg audience members to accomplish more with their lives as he offers his interpretation of current events.
“Cop pull you over then it’s over, you/Black man shot, night down the stretcher,” Brown raps, sounding as urgent as he did discussing addiction on XXX. “Under too much damn pressure/Stay stressed out, no helping out/We gotta keep it together.”
The final product is a song that Danny Brown totally makes his own, seeming like a cross between his more exploratory work on The Hybrid and XXX.
Stream ‘Get Up’ below.
Smoking on that stinky
Salsa like merengue
Beat it up, she hurricanin’
Screaming out “ay bay bay”
Trapped up in this rat race
Money owed like VATs paid
Chains looking like ice age
Cashing out like tax day
