A CONVERSATION WITH DANNY BROWN
In an era of industry-obsessed MCs, interchangeable hashtag raps, and “viral” everything, it has become increasingly difficult to find a true original in the rap game. Fortunately, at the start of the decade, along came Danny Brown. In 2011 the Detroit MC teamed up with Fool's Gold Records and released XXX, a tour-de-force concept record about hedonism, growing up, and his hometown, which took listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through his own uncensored ID. After a year of universal critical acclaim, Danny divided his time recording his debut full length LP, OLD, and appearing on tracks by the likes of A$AP Rocky, Ab-Soul, A-Trak & Purity Ring. OLD challenged XXX’s achievements, and Brown’s paradigm shredding path hasn’t hit a block since.
