Danny Brown drops comedic video for “Dirty Laundry”

‘uknowwhatimsaying¿’ arrives October.

Danny Brown has released a zany video for his latest single, “Dirty Laundry.” It’s the lead single of his new album, uknowwhatimsaying¿.

Directed by Simon Cahn, the video follows the wacky adventures of the Detroit rapper, who plays an eccentric cab driver in New York City. Over the course of his night, Brown shows off his kung fu moves in a laundromat, gets drunk in a jazz club and even beats up one of his passengers.

“This is my version of a stand-up comedy album,” Brown said of uknowwhatimsaying¿ in a press release. “Most of my close friends now aren’t rappers—they’re comedians and actors. So I wanted to create something that mixed humor with music. Something that was funny but not parody.”

Brown detailed the new record in an interview with Highsnobiety back in May. The album was executive-produced by Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, and features Run the Jewels, Obongjayar, JPEGMAFIA and Blood Orange. It arrives October 4 via Wrap.
