ARTS Pick: Danny Brown

Danny Brown’s lyrics render a portrait of inner city life that is unapologetic, unhindered, and impossible to forget. Danny Brown’s lyrics render a portrait of inner city life that is unapologetic, unhindered, and impossible to forget.

It may be the shrill voice of Danny Brown that catches the ear of rap enthusiasts, but it’s the lyrics that make him a modern hip-hop icon. The Detroit legend is brutally honest with his music, offering audiences the chance to view life as it occurs in an impoverished neighborhood. The versatile nature of his style reflects the complicated range of experiences found on the streets. One song is fast-paced and harsh, representing reckless adolescence. The next is brooding and sincere, capturing the perspective of innocent youths who are exposed to the unfair realities of poverty.

Friday 4/11. $16-18, 9pm. The Jefferson, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
