Danny Brown for GQ

GQ caught up with Danny for a quick Q&A and a new photoshoot. He spoke on his personal style preferences, how his hometown of Detroit influences his swagger and his new LP, getting topped off on stage and more.

On his new album:

“In New York, you go out every day and do shit. Detroit, you stay in the house for days. I think it’s what makes us experimental. You’re trapped inside and bored. My new album is very emotional. It’s a party album, but it’s dark. You gotta see Detroit as what it is: the city that made Juan Atkins, same city that made Jack White, same city that made Eminem.”

Hit the jump for a companion video to the piece, in which Danny breaks down the “Rules of Rebel Style”, and hit GQ for the full Q&A.

    i’s wondering if ya work wifey or any chic that has any knowledge of ya marriage woes asked you that question.

    & fam…accepting a living situation where a chic you share space with be out all hours of the night causing you to lose sleep jus to eventually get married & type for therapy on a blog about it to relieve stress…

  24. cOLD Says:

    most chicks lay their outfits out over the bed with at least 3 pair of shoes, cause they not certain what ones they’re gonna wear.

    watching em go through a series of shoes till they find the right ones, all the while throwing their hair back so not to get in their face.

    or when she pins her hair up so you can fasten a gold brooch >>>
