Named one of the most anticipated albums of the summer by New York Magazine, Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, Stereogum, AV Club, HotNewHipHop, Paste and many more, Cheat Codes, the debut album from Brian Burton and Tariq Trotter (AKA Danger Mouse & Black Thought), is a sprawling opus featuring a peerless roster of guest luminaries including A$AP Rocky, Run The Jewels, Michael Kiwanuka, Raekwon, Joey Bada$$, Russ, Conway the Machine, the late MF DOOM, among others. However, Cheat Codes is an album that — despite the brilliance and seeming complexity of its array of sounds, moods and top notch guest vocalists — is actually quite restrained. The natural chemistry between Brian and Tariq comes through in the ease with which the artist and listener move through this album. Moreover, it’s an album untethered to any genre, era or trend — uncategorizable and timeless.  It is the sound of the pair observing their own culture and asking questions they still may not have the answers to… but they undoubtedly have (dangerous) thoughts.
