DANNY BROWN - PNEUMONIA

This video pick is coming to you from Danny Brown’s long-awaited fourth studio album.  The second music video off Atrocity Exhibition-- just released in full on September 27th-- “Pneumonia” dropped today on major video services.  The track focuses on drugs and sex, while the video portrays Brown shackled in chains, on which he is strung up like a puppet.  He dangles from these chains in various positions, like a marionette being controlled by an amateur puppeteer, even occasionally being left on the asphalt.  These moments are woven between clips of old political footage, as well as replicated footage made to look just as dated, of Brown in a suit behind a podium of his own.

The video follows up its predecessor, “When It Rain,” the first single and video off the new album, released in tandem earlier this year.  The two videos share similar visual styles as befitting the catalog so far.  After it rains, you get pneumonia.  Atrocity Exhibition has already received a slew of excellent reviews across the board, and has so far peaked at number 77 on the Billboard 200 chart, and number 3 on the Billboard Rap chart.  His unique vocal style and flair for the experimental culminate in this album that definitely deserves a listen.  Check out the video for “Pneumonia” above!
