A new Danny Brown single will cap off the next episode of HBO's tech-industry comedy Silicon Valley. "Kool-Aid" is Brown's first new song since releasing the album Atrocity Exhibition last fall.


The manic single has Brown nimbly rapping over a jittery beat. On the catchy chorus, the rapper slows down to let his Midwestern accent deliver "my Kool-Aid, my Kool-Aid" repeatedly. 

Mike Judge's HBO series based off his own experiences as a tech engineer in the Eighties has featured other strong hip-hop songs, both new and old. Previously, it featured the Nas and DJ Shadow collaboration "Systematic." 

Brown released Atrocity Exhibition last September and has continued releasing new singles from it into the new year. Recently, he debuted the horrifying and surreal Jonah Hill-directed video for "Ain't It Funny." In the clip, Brown plays Uncle Danny in a "Too Many Cooks"-type parody of Eighties family sitcoms.
