Detroit, Michigan is a great city that’s seen better times. There are best-selling books that document Motown’s plight but leave it to Danny Brown to describe the Detroit’s urban blight like he was his city’s answer to Nas. On British producer Paul White’s “Street Lights” Danny takes a break from the partying and bullshitting to talk about a city so neglected that there aren’t enough street lights. In the dark of night guns go off, shady transactions are made and ghetto living becomes surreal.
Paul White’s “Street Lights” single drops on Apr. 15 (UK) and Apr. 16 (US) on One Handed Music. Pre-order the single on Bandcamp.
