Danny Brown releases his fifth studio album uknowhatimsayin¿, on October 4th via WARP. Along with the news, comes the video for “Dirty Laundry”, the clip was directed by Simon Cahn. Danny’s ode to standup comedy, an art-form he’s long respected. Danny goes on to explain “This is my version of a stand-up comedy album. Most of my close friends now aren’t rappers — they’re comedians and actors. So I wanted to create something that mixed humor with music. Something that was funny but not parody.”

Earlier this year, Brown previewed details on the album in a cover story with Highsnobiety, revealing executive production from the iconic rapper and producer Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest. Q-Tip’s involvement in uknowhatimsayin¿ marks the first time the artist has executive produced an album since Mobb Deep’s The Infamous. With Q-Tip’s guidance, Brown returned to his own version of traditional production but not without the toolbox of tricks he’s built along the way: “There was no room for error. Q-Tip wanted me to go back to that ‘Greatest Rapper Ever’ era. I almost had to relearn how to rap again — an ego death type thing. He gave me this whole new outlook on music. I can’t go back to how I was before.” Additional production comes from Paul White, JPEGMAFIA, Flying Lotus, Standing on the Corner and more with features from Run The Jewels, Obongjayar, JPEGMAFIA and Blood Orange(full tracklisting below)
