You might remember Mr. Swain from our harping on him since way back in 2006, and our review of his last album, And I Love H.E.R. If you still haven’t gotten hip to Mr. Swain yet, you need to stop sleeping.

After a slew of stops, starts, and other associated drama, Couch Sessions Approved Artist Danny Swain is finally releasing his latest LP on Def Jux records. Since the last album The album, titled Where Is Danny? is slated to drop this year, featuring production from the stellar Alex Goose.

Swain cuts through the nonsense of hip-hop, giving us simply dope lyrics and rhymes over hot beats. Even though some might call him “backpacker,” Swain consistently stays current and defies any label or categorization. Manic At The Disco takes on a darker tone than most of his work and is a take off of Eminem’s Slim Shady EP.

If you need to catch up on Danny, check him on Twitter and MySpace.

    Interview this guy…seriously. And make sure you find out who did the beat, too. Thanks =)

    Danny’s my homeboy but I haven’t done an interview with the dude. That’s gotta change.

    The beat is by Alex Goose from the ATL, one of the most underrated producers in the game right now, for sure. Check Danny’s Wonderland and Brittany Bosco’s 8 Track on his MySpace:
