One of my favorite Danny Swain productions comes in the form of Danny Brown’s “The Nana Song”. Well, that beat originally found life on the third installment of the Dream series, which is finally seeing the light of day thanks to Potholes Music. Stream, tracklist and link down bottom.
Now that Danny Swain’s Payback is finallyavailable (don’t sleep, seriously), I figured it would be cool to give y’all a listen to track 12. And yes… you read it right, Blu and the Based God lend their talents to the song. Enjoy.
Danny Swain made his television debut on Jimmy Fallon’s late night gab-fest last night where – backed by The Roots – he performed “Evil” off his upcoming Okayplayer Records debut Payback, set to drop this Tuesday (September 25th).
Mr. Swain just let me listen to Payback earlier today, and I will say that it’s something his fans will be glad they waited for it. Anyways, here’s the mastered version of a demo track Danny! let loose a few weeks ago, which will be on the project when it drops September 25th. Don’t forget, Danny! makes his television debut on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” this Thursday night (September 20th).
With Paybackfinally arriving on iTunes/Amazon on September 25th, OKP has put together a “best of” compilation to help y’all get familiar with the talented Danny Swain. Hit the jump for the tracklist/stream.
Finally! On September 25th, Danny Swain will be releasing his highly-anticipated album in conjunction with the relaunch of Okayplayer Records. For more information on the relaunch, ?uestlove’s thoughts and more click here.
Now that Danny! is slowly becoming more and more recognized (finally!), he’s teamed up with PIMB to re-release an instrumental project he original dropped half a decade ago. I still have my original copy, but this is still super dope for those that are playing catch up.
Shortly after the release of Charm, an album that would go on to make the 2007 Grammy short list and expose then 23-year-old Danny Swain to the world of MTV buzz and shiny record deals, the Savannah-based hip-hop artist quietly released his first instrumental album, Dream, Interrupted. The 23-track project was released exclusively in the U.K. and became a coveted collector’s album in the U.S. after Danny won MTV’s Best Music on Campus in 2007. The award promised a record deal, an EP release, and a music video, though Danny never saw the latter two materialize.
