Danny Brown has dropped an influx of tracks in recent weeks, so much so that it’s difficult to say which ones will appear on his forthcoming LP Old. During a recent show at Chicago’s Bottom Lounge, the snaggletoothed lyricist premiered another titled “Dip,” a spastic jam that references The Throne’s “H.A.M” quotable “Don’t let me get in my zone.”

Brown’s incessant forewarnings had already came to fruition, as he jumped around the stage in what was likely a drug induced trance. Don’t consider that dry snitching, because his affinity for addictive substances have been well documented.

The same can be said about his knack for selecting off-kilter production, a talent that shines through here. Brown somehow finds a pocket on a beat listeners won’t be able to categorize by today’s rap standards. Aspects on the song draw from trap influences, while others can be likened to EDM. Nevertheless, fans were treated to new material that encompasses everything they’ve come to love from the energetic MC.

Hopefully Old will hold true to its August release date. See footage from the show below.
