Danny Brown: 'Lost' Video + BTS

 

Join Danny Brown in this behind the scenes look at the making of his video for 'Lost'.  The track comes from his album Atrocity Exhibition, and it's like no other we've seen before.  Matilda Finn directed the VHS styled video takes on the subject matter that has been present in Danny Brown's music.  'Lost' has become a favourite track from the album, and the video offers an additional look at the difference between the man and his life, and the audience perception of who he is.  'Lost' reminds us that while these songs, and videos may seem like the antics of a character, they are in fact based in the experiences of a very real, talented artist and reflect the real life struggles of people everywhere.
