Danny Brown has no love for MTV … or at least that’s what his new track, “#HottestMC,” suggests.
It’s pretty easy to insult the once music-video-only channel. To begin with, the acronym no longer stands for “Music Television.” Then there’s the fact that music videos are hard to find on MTV. Ultimately, though, the pop-culture machine’s largest offense was “Jersey Shore.”
But Danny Brown doesn’t take issue with any of those points. No, it’s the channel’s Hottest MCs list (on which Brown is not featured, though there’s a chance he could be named in the top five) that can be credited with this one-off track.
As always, Brown’s energy is high on “#HottestMC” — a persona he didn’t quite live up to during his show in Denver in February — as he calls out every rapper that exists aside from himself.
Possibly the best line from “HottestMC?”
“I’m the present and the future same damn time” followed by some talk of fallatio. As always, Brown is a true gentleman.
