A new dose of coy lyrical “comedy”.

A few months back, Danny Brown teased some details of a forthcoming album uknowhatimsayin¿, the Detroit rapper’s fifth studio record and first since 2016’s Atrocity Exhibition.

WARP has now confirmed that uknowhatimsayin¿ is set to be released on October 4 and will feature production from the iconic likes of A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip, Flying Lotus and JPEGMAFIA. Appearances from Run The Jewels, Obongjayar and Blood Orange are also scattered among the album’s 10 tracks.

Brown is well-known for his ingeniously bizarre lyrical play and explains that this record is “my version of a stand-up comedy album. Most of my close friends now aren’t rappers-they’re comedians and actors. So I wanted to create something that mixed humor with music. Something that was funny but not parody.”

Watch the video for the lead single ‘Dirty Laundry’ below.
