JPEGMAFIA and Danny Brown launch collaborative project with explosive rap chaos on ‘LEAN BEEF PATTY’ + announce new album SCARING THE HOES

‘LEAN BEEF PATTY’ is out now, buy/stream it here.

After teasing the project for well over a year, two wicked pioneers of the alternative rap underground, JPEGMAFIA and Danny Brown today come together for a mammoth collaboration launched with their new single ‘LEAN BEEF PATTY’ from their forthcoming joint album SCARING THE HOESLISTEN + WATCH HERE + PRE-ORDER HERE.

Executive produced and mastered by JPEGMAFIA with a feature track from artist Redveil, Peggy and Danny Brown come together as an unprecedented joining of forces as thrilling as it makes straight-up sense. Throughout the two bridge their synonymous styles with the cracking wav-form approach of SOPHIE and Aphex Twin to the fiery spirit of trailblazers Dipset and a mutual affection for internet culture: nostalgic for Limewire, Reddit wormholes, and super-fans of Fortnite streamers.

A short, sharp shock to the system that acts as a precursor to one of the most anticipated projects of the year, ‘LEAN BEEF PATTY’ speaks to that culture, calling out Twitter edgelords with Peggy’s warning of going “from Elon to Ye in a week,” while riding a broken hardcore stomp. A warped sequence of gunshots gives way to reprieve in a gentle, part drum and bass, part vinyl scratch break that welcomes the playful, kooky flow from the Danny we all know and love, ‘LEAN BEEF PATTY’ is rap as you’ve never heard it before; postmodern, powerful and totally arresting.

Announced on a recent episode of The Danny Brown Show, ‘LEAN BEEF PATTY’ pushes the boundaries of the possibilities within modern music. A fusion of rap and high-energy electronic music, the track, and SCARING THE HOES as a whole, play into the strength of two of the most daring, subversive artists operating today. Of its release and their relationship, Peggy revealed “The way that people think that I’m weird, is the way that you actually are,” while Danny explained, “he had patience with me and let me rock.”

The result is a dynamic, earth-shattering release that showcases both generational artists at their heights. Cacophonic beats with slapstick samples, glitches and noise bursts, synonymous with JPEGMAFIA, and the bars that evoke the fanciful banter and one-of-a-kind cadence that made Danny Brown a name. Complete with megalomanic to glam guitar solos, twisted noughties RNB flips and references to Muddy Waters, Kingdom Hearts and Jack Harlow, SCARING THE HOES is already a major pop culture moment, expect the unexpected.
