Interview: Danny Brown at The FADER FORT by FIAT NYC

Halfway through the final song on XXX, "30," Danny Brown says, I never learned to rap, always knew how. That song, and the rest of the album, is a similar wrestling with destiny. With the exception of oral sex, Brown doesn't have a straightforward relationship with anything. His songs alternate from celebration of substance abuse to lamentation of the realities of addiction, fantasies of rich life to the hard work of making money. Sam Hockley-Smith compared Brown to Louis CK and Brown endorses that likeness here, pushing it further, into the absurd world of Larry David. No question he's got a sense of humor—just look at his jacket. This past weekend, at the FADER FORT by FIAT NYC, he talked about his tiger stripes and his record before giving an excellent performance.
