Listen to the song Danny Brown is so impressed by.
G Herbo shared his long-awaited debut album Humble Beast on Friday. Since it came out, one song has received a lot of attention, particularly due to Danny Brown’s very public appreciation on Twitter. Produced by Herbo’s frequent collaborator DJ L, “Malcolm” is a story of a Chicago kid who finds himself falling into the street life and before he knows it, facing the consequences. It’s not a cautionary tale but a detailed look into a broken system. In the song’s closing, Herbo imagines how things would have gone differently had Malcolm’s circumstances been different.
