Watch Danny Brown’s Face-Melting “ODB” Video

August 28, 2013 | Andy Cush

Here’s “ODB,” the video and first single from OLD, the forthcoming album from Detroit bruiser Danny Brown. If you’ve been following Danny at all (and of course you have), you pretty much know what to expect, and “ODB” doesn’t disappoint. Unsurprisingly for a first single, it’s in the vein of the bugged-out, drug-happy first half of breakout mixtape XXX, not its reflective hangover of a denouement. Brown compares himself to both David Ruffin and George Carlin over an absolutely bonkers synth-led beat by Brit producer Paul White, and the multicolored video from director Ruffmercy is appropriately trippy.
