Darq E Freaker f/ Danny Brown – “Blueberry (Pills & Cocaine)” | Music Video


Detroit-hailing rapper and one-tenth of this year’s XXL Freshmen class Danny Brown cites the UK’s own Grime movement as a big influence, but you might have already guessed that by listening to his XXX release. The oddball emcee, who calls Dizzee Rascal his Beatles, has previously carried his gap-toothed grin and rude rhymes across the pond with a collaboration with Dubstep producer Joker for Pitchfork’s Selector. It was a fusion of sounds that felt natural to the ear; much like today’s Transatlantic offering.

Forming an alliance with prominent Grime beatsmith Darq E Freaker (the force behind Tempa T‘s ferocious “Next Hype”), the pair stir sounds to create a potent concoction entitled “Blueberry (Pills & Cocaine)”. The collaboration surfaces today in both single (via Southern Hospitality) and music video form, with the latter depicting both men wreaking havoc in the LDN.

Peep the clip below and stream the single via SoundCloud after the jump, which packs four different remixes from Sinden & 5kinandbone5, Star Slinger, Pelican Fly All Stars and MORRI$.
