Do we care about Danny?

Post Author:

Definitive Jux coaxed indie sensation Danny! out of retirement three years ago come January. With still no album released, IMPOSE is begging the question: Do we still care about Danny?

Danny was an URB Next 100 honoree and released one of the ABC News' 50 best records of 2008. He delivered seven albums in four years and retired before the age of 25. Definitive Jux claims it is releasing his label debut Where Is Danny? in 2009, but with no release date set, it looks as though the delay continues.

At this juncture, we are not sure if we care anymore. The fact that we are getting a new Clipse album in December will probably overshadow any hip hop record released in the first quarter of 2010. The leaked song “Door Man” has already replaced “Dirty Money” as the new “we're hitting the town” theme music. All Danny is offering are narratives on how to cook your way into a girl's heart and/or bedroom.

Where is Danny and why should I continue to care?

Danny!, “Sloppy Joe Pt. 1”

Danny!, “Get Down”
