His "Detroit State Of Mind" mixtapes and first solo album The Hybrid were a great start for the artist, allowing him to start a loyal following on the East Coast and Midwest.
2011 has been his biggest year so far, when he released XXX as a free download when he signed to Fool’s Gold. The album didn’t go unnoticed by the masses, garnering an 8.2/10 from Pitchfork who named it the 19th best album of 2011, and the best hip hop album of the year by Spin. He also dropped Black and Brown, a highly lauded collaboration with producer/rapper Black Milk that also reeived high reviews from publications.
2012 has been a banner year for Danny, starting off with a feature in XXL Magazine as one of the members of their 2012 Freshmen Class (joined by 2011/2012 Soundset artist Macklemore). Showing no signs of slowing down this year, he’s already been featured on several tracks this year with artists like Tony Yayo (G-unit), A-Trak and Juciy J, Ab-Soul, and more!
While recently at SXSW in Austin, TX, Brown was interviewed by none other than Narduwar. Check out the very interesting interview below to find out if he likes spicy food, and check out some of the latest music videos from DB before he hits the Soundset 2012 Main Stage!
