If poor life choices and a difficult upbringing were unfortunate precursors to your chucking sobriety to the wind, or if wealth and privilege precipitated the odorous bedroom wallpaper made out of non-monetary greenage, Danny Brown’s inebriated exalt “Smokin & Drinkin” might’ve had distinct appeal among the otherwise fantastic tracks of Old. To be sure, a lot of Brown’s lyrics seem to be doused in white powder and packed inside rolling papers, but thus far, have we encountered so blatant a homage from the unyielding Detroit rapper? Why… well, yes. The guy loves repeated proclamations of his repeated drug indulgences, but it seems time to pass the symbolic spliff, temporarily, in the form of a remix!
Jersey “Club King” and newfound Fade To Mind associate DJ Sliink has just unveiled an unsurprisingly club-like rendition, which you can listen to below. Separately, so long as he abstains from offending the fellow Michigander with unwanted peer pressure, Brown (with Odd Future) will be supporting the now-sober Eminem today and tomorrow at Wembley Stadium in London. I’m sensing the makings of a new Odd Couple, where the series finale is set to take place LIVE… in a gutter somewhere. Let’s hope not though! It’s all about moderation, folks.
