Tags: Danny Brown, Childish Gambino, XXX

Everywhere you look, it’s Danny Brown: staring out from newsstands on the cover of The Fader’s spring style special and XXL’s Freshman issue, featured onNBC’s Late Night With Carson Daly and “certified” by MTV2’s Sucker Free, and blasting through SXSW all this week, headlining showcases before embarking on a sold-out spring tour of North America with Childish Gambino.

The Detroit MC’s lauded XXX (named Best Rap Album of 2011 by Spin) hits iTunes today in a deluxe edition featuring a full digital lyric booklet and three brand new, unreleased tracks. Vinyl connoisseurs will be able to pick up XXX a few weeks later on a special Record Store Day 2xLP set on white vinyl with a limited bonus 7″ of “XXXapellas” only included in the RSD pressing, on sale 4/21. Here is his brand new video just released, “Radio Song”.

The new music doesn’t stop there: Scion A/V will release a new Danny Brown single, “Grown Up,” produced by Fool’s Gold labelmate Party Supplies as a free download on 3/20, and will be giving away 7″ copies all throughout Danny’s tour with Childish Gambino. And on 3/27, Fool’s Gold will release “Piss Test” by A-Trak featuring Juicy J and Danny Brown, the first teaser off the forthcoming FG rap compilation album, Loosies.

Update: Hear the new Danny Brown track “Grown Up” below. You can download it for free from Scion A/V. Of course it’s the edited version only. Hopefully the 7″ won’t be!
