His latest studio album, Atrocity Exhibition, was released on September 27, 2016. His father was a house disc jockey who exposed Brown to all the music he would spin, as well as music from the likes of Roy Ayers, LL Cool J, Esham and A Tribe Called Quest.
Brown's talent for rhyming came at a very young age, as his mother would read Dr. For as long as he could remember, Danny Brown had always wanted to be a rapper: "In kindergarten I'd say I wanted to be a rapper and people'd just laugh at me.
The whole interview is great, but here are some highlights.
On the first time she got into rap: When I was in elementary school I would listen to the radio, and when I was really, really little, I loved Petey Pablo.

They did as much as they possibly could to keep me in the house with whatever the newest video game was.
Brown, 32, is on tour with fellow rapper Kitty Pryde.
On Wednesday she penned an angry letter about the incident, expressing her outrage at what she considered sexual assault.
A lot has been written about you on the Internet, but what's the most ridiculous thing you've read about yourself? How did you come to make "Orion's Belt," the song you did with Riff Raff?
There's a lot about me hooking up with Riff Raff, which is very creepy to me. " Riff Raff told us that he had a good time drinking beer with your dad. The day I came out with the "Okay Cupid" video, he sent me a message on Twitter. If BJ Novak and Mindy Kaling wrote a sitcom about you, what would it be like?

Danny Brown has come under fire for an incident that occurred at his April 26 tour stop in Minneapolis, in which a female fan rushed the stage and performed oral sex on the "XXX" rapper.
According to reports, the experimental hip-hop artist was in the middle of a song when the unidentified woman came up and pulled his pants down.
"I'm mad that a person thought it was okay to pull another person's pants down during their performance in front of about 700 other people," Pryde, whose real name is Kathryn Beckwith, wrote.
"I'm mad that a person thought it was a good idea to perform a sex act on another person without their consent. I'm mad that Danny had to actually wonder what he was supposed to do at that point." Pryde goes on to express her anger about the double standard of sexual assault towards males, adding - as a white woman herself - that a reaction from Brown towards the girl would have had racial implications because she was white as well.
