Albums come, albums go, but some are unjustifiably slept on. Danny Brown’s critically acclaimed 2013 release Old certainly fits that bill, but the MC provides a reminder today by releasing a visual for “25 Bucks,” featuring Purity Ring.

“Now I’m trapped in the trap and the devil ain’t forgetting/Wanna see me dead or locked in a prison” chants Brown on the song’s bridge. But wait, the rabbit hole goes much deeper in verses that detail a poverty-stricken life.

The NORTON-directed clip visualizes the story in scenes that literally suspend moments in time, as the Fool’s Gold rapper and Purity Ring singer Megan James examine these situations in rhyme and song.

Danny Brown’s Old is currently available for purchase via iTunes. Peep the video for “25 Bucks” below.
