Danny Brown is back with a brand new song, “When It Rain”. Watch the video below.
On making the song “When It Rain”, Brown said, “When I first heard the beat it reminded me of one of those old ghetto tech instrumentals we’ll be like jittin to, you know what I’m saying, at the house parties and stuff. That’s why I put the jitting in the video. To me that’s what it reminded me of, just a Detroit party in the basement jittin in a circle. It took me back to them days. That was like middle school days.
Brown expanded on inspiration for the “When It Rain” video, telling Zane Lowe, “Talking Heads were a big influence on this album. I was listening to a lot of Talking Heads and just studying. It started out with my manager buying me a book. I read about them before I even started to really listen to their music. He bought me the book about ‘Fear and Music’ so I was reading about that. The way they had prompted that album at that time and the way they was doing a lot of that stuff is what I’m incorporating into what I’m doing right now. Right now I’m messing around with Little Creatures. More so even their approach to how they brought it to you visually is what I’m more intrigued with. David Byrne is a legend. I look up to people like that and I try to incorporate that into rap music.”
