Songs of the Weekend – Grown Up by Danny Brown

Danny Brown is beloved on the independent hip-hop scene because of his witty braggadocio, old school delivery and distinctive hipster visage. On Grown Up, he touches on his formative years growing up in Detroit and offers up a slew droll lyrics:

Remember when my first meal was school lunch
Now I spit a 16 straight with no punch
Remember all for dinner all we ate was Captain Crunch
Now we blow big blunts on the way to brunch
Went from good fella to commissary slips
Now I got back up man every time I slipped
Never ever quit, I just kept on pursuing
Teacher always ask me, what was I doing
Scribbled in my notebook and never did homework
Low attention span, guess these Adderall worked

The breezy beat is reminiscent of the Pharcyde or Hieroglyphics, and the scratched sample during the chorus further cements the song’s classic hip-hop feel. A charming, reflecting sentiment and inoffensive lyrics make this song a perfect fit for your summertime cruising playlist.
