Danny Brown & Clams Casino come together on ‘Worth It’

Detroit mega-rapper Danny Brown and mega-producer Clams Casino (think A$AP Rocky, Lil B, Mac Miller and way more), have finally come together on a track, and it’s crazy interesting. As the 9th instalment of the 2015 Adult Swim Singles series – which has thus far included new tracks from artists like Yung Lean and Peaches – it’s free to download too (scream).

Worth It is Danny Brown’s exploration of fame and celebrity. His fast and piercing vocals run laps around Clams’ spacey instrumental, and though on first listen it doesn’t really sound like it matches up, it really finds a groove. The juxtaposition of Brown’s vocals and Clam’s production also backs up the meaning in Brown’s words. He questions his career path; “Is it really worth it? / For fast cards and ice / Do you wanna live that life? / Is it really worth it? / New girls every night / Do you wanna live that life?” and takes aim at the careers of his peers, “Smoke ‘til I get a head rush / Lookin’ at you rappers like breakfast/ No apologies for what Imma do to ya / Imma take that game like I’m a sore loser.”

With 7 tracks still yet to be released via Adult Swim, there are big shoes to fill after this one. Danny Brown and Clams Casino is an amazing collaboration – and hopefully it means future collabs between the two of them, and more individual work as well (Instrumentals vol. 4 please Clams).
