Detroit and Atlanta are joined in unholy union.

Kenny Beats ushered in the second season of his ongoing web series, The Cavewith an appearance from Danny Brown.

Though the show’s format encourages off-the-cuff bars (of which Brown has no shortage,) the Detroit MC waxes a bit on how “I have to put love and care into these songs,” as Kenny sets up his Ableton session. Brown also tells a story about nearly losing his life if it weren’t for a friend named Pootie Tang.

Once the beat’s crafted (and a PSA from Zach Fox flashes,) Danny hops in the booth with a bag of lines about kush, kiwis, and genies. And the final product begs for a full (hell, even abbreviated) collaborative project.

The session follows the release of Brown’s new album, uknowhatimsayin¿, which was executive-produced by Q-Tip and features guest spots from Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Run The Jewels, JPEGMAFIA, and more.

Watch Danny Brown bless the booth in the latest episode of Kenny Beats’ The Cave below.
