Song: Danny Brown "Monopoly"
Label: Fool's Gold
Danny Brown's ascension from relative obscurity last year was an impressive one. The rapper's no-holds-barred rapping style, addressing everything with brashness and honesty, resulted in one of the best albums of the year, XXX.
This line sums up the confidently aggressive spirit that makes Danny Brown so appealing. Deep down inside, he knows his talent is superior to many rappers who are better known than he is—and he's not moved, but his bowels sure are. Brown's defecation serves as a declaration that he can handle his business on the mic and wants every rapper in the game to know that in his book he's still No. 1, and they're No. 2.
