Danny Brown's lionized XXX found him rapaciously ripping through beats with no regard for hooks or song structure. With Old, he wrestles his manic personality into choruses aimed at an audience enamored of his YOLO persona. Side B brings a twerkin' track ("Shake that *ss for a hipster n*gga," he says on "Handstand"), "Smokin' & Drinkin'," famous friends like A$AP Rocky and Charli XCX, and trap-inflected beats. Side A has mordant thoughts of "Clean Up" over dreamlike samples. The topsy-turvy order -- reflection, then celebration -- parallels an artist embracing newfound stardom.
