It’s been roughly three years since Danny Brown released a full-length studio album. The closest fans got to hearing new material from the Detroit-bred rapper/actor was during a Twitch session last August when he played several unheard tracks he titled the Twitch EP.
But according to El-P, Brown’s forthcoming album and follow-up to 2016’s Atrocity Exhibition is worth the wait. The Run The Jewels co-conspirator tweeted about it over the weekend.
“welp @xdannyxbrownx just played me his new album and even unmixed it’s an instant classic, imho,” he wrote. “true story.”

It’s natural to conclude El-P — and possibly Killer Mike — are involved in Brown’s project. Unfortunately for Brown’s fans, he hasn’t revealed any details.
During a Twitter Q&A last July, he announced the album was coming after Kickstarter’s Director of Music Meredith Graves asked him why he suddenly became “the most entertaining person on twitter and/or ever.”
He replied simply, “I gotta album coming.”
