Watch Danny Brown’s New ‘ODB’ Video
Danny Brown has revealed the absolutely bonkers and psychedelic video for his new single, ‘ODB.’ To call this “a trip” would be a massive understatement.
The track features the Detroit rapper at his most unhinged and spitting like he could run out of breath at any second. It’s fitting given the horror movie-like instrumental by London producer Paul White and the song title’s clear reference to the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
Matching Brown’s off-the-rails energy might seem like a huge task, but director/animator Ruff Mercy handles it with ease. He shape-shifts the rapper’s face, drops globs of color all over his cranium, and inserts animated touches to make him almost look demonic or, at the very least, demented.
You can watch the video above and we recommend doing so with the HD feature turned on. Brown’s new album, ‘Old,’ drops Sept. 30.
