A-Trak's label Fool's Gold had a big announcement to make at the FADER FORT in Austin, TX last week. Rap Radar points out that A-Trak informed the crowd at the the FADER FORT in Austin, that he signed the upcoming Detroit rapper to his imprint.
2010 was Danny’s breakout year, with his self-released The Hybrid showcasing a hypnotic, unique flow that Pitchfork called “the most peculiarly infectious voice since Dizzee Rascal,” while the LA Times praised it for “punch lines like Conan O’Brien if he’d come up selling crack.” He built a rabid online fanbase, stole the show on collaborations with everyone from Tony Yayo to Das Racist to the late J Dilla, and covered the Metro Times as the most acclaimed underground Detroit MC since a certain blonde fellow named Marshall. When it came time for Danny to take the next step and find a real home for his new music, it was only right that he would find a perfect fit with Fool’s Gold, the artist-run Brooklyn indie label renowned for launching new talent like Duck Sauce, Kid Sister and Kid Cudi to the world at large.
The rapper released a very versatile offering entitled The Hybrid last summer. Grab it here
