GQ Magazine announced today that hip hop artist and producer Danger Mouse will be honored in this years esteemed GQ Men of the Year issue, which will also include Tom Cruise, James Gandolfini, Jude Law, Helmut Lang, Donald Trump, Quentin Tarantino, Kanye West, Russell Simmons and Dustin Hoffman to name a few.
Danger Mouse, who NME hailed as Âthe Hottest Hip-Hop Producer in the WorldÂ, is currently hidden away in the UK producing the highly anticipated new Gorillaz album.
According to GQ, Danger Mouse is "the laid-back genius who melded Jay-Z's The Black Album with the Beatles' The White Album to create The Grey Album, a bootleg masterpieceÂ.
The infamous Grey Album is a unique hybrid of work touted as the one of the most unique hip hop productions of all time, an album which forever raised the bar on hip hop experimentalism. With one million downloads in just one week and an ensuing battle between major record companies, the media, the Internet and copyright advocates, the release of the Grey Album is considered a watershed moment in music history.
Earlier this year Danger Mouse released his debut Danger Mouse & Jemini Ghetto Pop Life CD featuring Tha Alkaholiks, J-Zone, The Pharcyde and Prince Po. The CD received massive critical acclaim across the board. SPIN magazine called it Âa remarkable debutÂ. URB magazine called it Âan instant classicÂ. Danger Mouse recently followed up with the 26Â EP which includes guests Cee-Lo and Sadat-X.
Waxploitation is the record label and management company for noted hip hop and electronic artists including Danger Mouse, Tha Alkaholiks, Tweaker, KutMasta Kurt, Teargas & Plateglass, Likwit Crew, E-Swift, Dopestyle 1231, Tash and more.
