CHECK!! Full details of Danny Brown’s new album, uknowhatimsayin¿, has finally been unveiled, and it turns out our Fancy-Pants News Editor wasn’t lying. The 11-track album is executive produced by Q-Tip, and it features additional help from Flying Lotus, Standing on the Corner, and longtime producer Paul White, as well as guest spots from Run The Jewels, Obongjayar, and Blood Orange. JPEGMAFIA is behind the boards and on the mic, because, you know, it’s JPEGMAFIA.

“There was no room for error,” says Danny Brown. “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.”

Watch the video for the curiously succinct album’s curiously succinct single “Dirty Laundry” below (dir. Simon Cahn), followed by dates for a monster-ish North American tour that begins October 16. And in case you weren’t already aware: you never know what to expect from a Danny Brown show. Trust me. I live in Minneapolis, if ya know what I mean. ;)

uknowhatimsayin¿ arrives October 4 via Warp and can be pre-ordered here.
