Would you ever come back to Kenyon College? You getting on stage and yelling "COLLEGE STUDENTS GIVE ME YOUR ADDERALL" is kind of a campus legend now

DannyBrownBruhBruh653 karma

hahah hell yea i had fun out there

Kr1ss510 karma

Hey bruhbruh

My question would be: are you still interested in making video games like you said in an interview?

also come visit us in r/HipHopHeads, we hyped as fuck for OLD

DannyBrownBruhBruh470 karma

yea i am .. shits expensive tho .. so i gotta stack up bruh bruh

farmered449 karma

  1. What do you really feel like was the public's issue with you getting your dick sucked on stage?

  2. How often do you switch from depressed to manic and hype, or is it a gradual transition?

  3. What are upcoming projects with you and Bruiser Brigade besides, the album in 2014? I'm referring here to more of the Bruiser Brigade crew.

  4. My father sells heroin, so I really identify with you on the dope fiend shit. The fact that you rose from a point so low really inspires me. On XXX, you say you always knew you were the greatest rapper ever, and in the Complex interview you say no one believed in you. How did you believe in yourself while being surrounded by dope, fiends and no one to support you?

  5. You re-tweeted my girlfriend the other day. Comon bruh, I thought we was friends.

DannyBrownBruhBruh1265 karma

  1. i think they was mad at the fact that im so sexy i got chicks willing to do those type of things

  2. its gradual almost like a bi polar type of thing i never know when its gonna come out

  3. Bruiser Brigade drops in 2014

  4. u answered that question yourself i was around dope fiends it was either that or become one of them

  5. hey man u should be honored most likely means shes kinda hot

I watched the documentary you posted recently. I think Hot Soup is one of your better albums, that live performance and down to earth footage of you on that day was cool to see.

Awesome job on Old.

Congrats, and please consider giving the Canadian Border another try.

mutual friends

blaqmarket80 karma

Hey Danny, big fan. I've had your album on repeat, it's seriously incredible. Couple questions:

  1. How does it feel observing a genre your entire life and now getting the chance to not only participate, but pushing the envelope so far that you're changing the genre as a whole?

  2. How are other rappers in the genre responding to your work and the challenge that it represents in as competitive a genre as hip hop?

  3. I saw you live in Pomona and I've never seen a crowd that hype. How has your mindset when approaching and crafting performances changed from back when you released the Hybrid?

  4. Seriously you're my favorite artist in the genre, this isn't a question just wanted to say thanks for being the soundtrack to all the cocaine fuelled debauchery I've enjoyed over the past couple years. Keep killin it, Danny.

DannyBrownBruhBruh126 karma

  1. man it feels incredible its like a life long dream

  2. idk i think most of em are terrified of me

  3. i mean when i was doing hybrid type songs at shows they were pretty boring so i wanted to change that

  4. thx bruh bruh

daisyage77 karma

Hey Danny, I love what you've been doing the last few years, keep it up! Who do you see as your "peers" in today's music? Or maybe I could say it as, who out of the people releasing music now inspires you to push boundaries?

  2. nothing i havent seen before but i saw a chick suck off like a long ass line of dudes

Hey Sir Daniel Brown! I been to every show you have out here in the bay area. Even got that meet n greet at the Parish in oakland. (I was that dude with the tooth shirt. if you remember) I'm hella mad I forgot my copy of XXX in the car and was so high/bummed I forgot to get you to sign my meet & greet pass.

My question is: Are you still friends with Kendrick Lamar? He has an interview on youtube where he's talking about how he likes his cereal soggy. hahaha

Also, how often do you relax your hair? I'm loving old by the way. Can't wait for my copy to arrive.

DannyBrownBruhBruh80 karma

hahah .. yea dot the homey .. if anyone can be my friend and like soggy cereal its him .. maybe every few months

Anyways, been super into The Hybrid (some exotic shit) and XXX this summer. Wish you'd roll through Santa Cruz sometime. Peace.

What's your favorite song off Old?

DannyBrownBruhBruh49 karma

i dont have a favorite i like all of them the same

domgarcia9420 karma

Hey Danny,

I think my favorite part of XXX was the dichotomy between the wilder, out of control Danny and the more self conscious, calmer Danny and how it built up to this fucking wild, emotionally charged ending in the track “30.” Would you say there’s a similar moment on Old? Or were you going for kind of an opposite effect—Old seems to start with mellower street shit, followed by crazy shit and then ending with a calmer ending in “Float On.” Also, any particular features you trying to get in the coming future? Personally, I think anything with Chance or Dizzee Rascal would be fucking awesome, but that’s just my opinion. Thanks.

DannyBrownBruhBruh33 karma

yea its similar and i dont care about collabs i cant make music without help

mawney19 karma

The girl speaking in French at the beginning of Lonely, what's that about ?

Also I missed you when you were in Dublin, sorry man.

DannyBrownBruhBruh33 karma

the challenges is to stay consistent i guess

zewthenimp12 karma

It's awesome to see you're still heavily working with Paul White - a producer who often experiments with unconventional, psychedelic beats.

As you've gotten more successful and reached a bigger audience, are you getting any pressure to steer towards a more commercial sound?

DannyBrownBruhBruh52 karma

not at all

explosivo56311 karma

You have hooked up with various big names in electronic music and often have dubstep and trap fueled production. Is that what you listen to? It seems to fit your style really well. Props on OLD. Come back to Iowa any time!

DannyBrownBruhBruh28 karma

i grew up listening to electronic music

gettinggroovy4 karma

can't wait to see you in the D with Griz next month! Old is fantastic, all I've listened to. Now that you've got the respect from the industry, what direction do you want to take your music? I could see you getting real progressive with your music (like Lonely).

keep it real bruh bruh

DannyBrownBruhBruh6 karma

just try to take it as far as possible

zeusfist3 karma

Danny! What's good? I met you at soundset two years back. Does it feel like in this small amount of time you've really taken off career wise or has the fan growth and fame come steady? On top, what are your personal favorite albums front to back for anyone trying to get into hip hop?

Keep the peace, bruh bruh.

DannyBrownBruhBruh10 karma

nah i dont pay attention to things like that ... to many to name
