Side A (Old)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Old, the third studio album by American Hip-Hop recording artist Danny Brown. The record was Brown's first to be officially sold through music outlets and digital retailers. "The title has nothing to do with my age," the rapper told The Guardian, "it's to do with me being underground for so long to the point where a person could come to me and say, 'I like the old Danny Brown.' I'm letting all these people know where I came from before I continue on."
