"This is my version of a stand-up comedy album," the rapper says of his new Warp LP.
The new LP is executive produced by long-time rapper Q-Tip—the first time he's executive produced an album since Mobb Deep's The Infamous in 1995—and features additional production from Flying Lotus, Paul White, Standing On The Corner and JPEGMAFIA, along with appearances from Blood Orange, Run The Jewels and more.
"This is my version of a stand-up comedy album," Brown says. "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."
"There was no room for error. Q-Tip wanted me to go back to that 'Greatest Rapper Ever' era," he adds. "I almost had to relearn how to rap again—an ego death type thing."
uknowhatimsayin¿ follows Brown's last Warp LP, Atrocity Exhibition, which came out in 2016.
