So Danny Brown just stopped by the office and revealed to me that he is signing with Fools Gold Records. To be honest I was a little surprised, but that is a great look for him. Since Cudder they have been a little quite (in hip-hop, that “Barbra Streisand” joint is killing it), and the Donnis signing was a misstep in my opinion. A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs are excellent and at bringing music to people who don’t merely concentrate on the genre of hip-hop, and I think that although Danny is on some rappity rap sh*t he has the capability to appeal to people with diverse tastes in music. Plus as Danny just eloquently told me, “Fool’s Gold has the bitches”. And who doesn’t like to get their d*ck wet now and again?
I gotta tell you I think Danny is going to be a problem as I have previously noted. I’m such a rappity rap hater these days, but Danny seems to be the exception. Plus the dude is smart. Don’t let his image fool you. He knows exactly what he is doing. This music sh*t is a game, and Danny might be a dude who knows how to manipulate it.
