Danny Brown ft. Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt, and Ab-Soul - "Really Doe"
Release date: September 19, 2016
When Danny Brown released his Atrocity Exhibition album last year, it was clear to see that “Really Doe,” with features from Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Earl Sweatshirt, was supposed going to be an iconic posse cut. During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio, Brown said he originally didn't want a hook, but Kendrick suggested that they add a chorus to it. The addition makes the song feel whole and far catchier than it would have been if it were just a long lineup of verses.
Aside from creating a short, but effective chorus for “Really Doe,” Kendrick also adds a vicious verse of his own. He enters by comparing the way fans desire his music to the way fiends crave drugs. But he doesn’t just brag about himself—the bridge that precedes his voice is the perfect pocket for that moment, and his off-kilter delivery is nothing short of breathtaking.
