Classic Drug References Vol. 1 will be released on November 25 as a box set containing 3 7” records featuring CDR extended family Danny Brown, Ras G, Quelle Chris, Blu, Knxwledge and more. In addition to the 7” vinyl, the box set contains a zine featuring interviews with A$AP YAMS and Mr. Porter conducted by Sweeney Kovar, writing from Dart Adams, Hex Murder, etc and photography from B+, Ani Yapundzhyan, and Rodrigo Reyes. Today, check out the song aptly titled “Sweeney Song” from Danny Brown & MNDSGN. Below is text written by Sweeney Kovar that is included as linear notes as part of the CDR Vol. 1 Box Set.

"Danny was my longshot for this project. By the time I got moving on this he’d already signed with Fool’s Gold and was about to drop XXX, which would establish him as one of the fiercest MC’s out. I emailed and DM’d to no avail. One day I decided to try something really crazy and picked up the phone and called him. The stars were aligned and a rapper actually answered his phone. In all of two minutes he agreed to cut a track. I emailed him a .zip of beats I’d culled from the homies and about a week later I got a sendspace link entitled “SWEENY SONG.” He had taken a Mndsgn beat and absolutely ripped it to shreds. It’s been so long since he cut it that it now sounds like vintage Danny to me, which of course I love. I fixed the typo in the title and ran with it." -Sweeney
