Danny Brown Is Writing A Children’s Book And Working On His New Album

db book

Danny Brown was relatively quiet in 2014, collaborations aside, but it seems like he’s been using his time for other things besides music – like writing a children’s book.

“It’s been taking me forever to finish. It’s really about self-esteem in black girls, I guess,” he told triple j about the book in a new interview. “You know how black women do so much – process their hair, change their eye colour -it’s really about a little girl who does all these things to herself and changes herself and she realises she’s just better off the way she is.”

“It’s something for my daughter… I’ve got to finish it though,” he continued.” I want it to be real Dr. Seuss-y. The Grinch, Green Eggs And Ham, and One Fish, Two Fish -what was going on in that guy’s brain to be able to write those things?”

Danny also revealed that he’ll be working with the usual suspects on his album, like SKYWLKR and Paul White, as well as Alchemist.

Listen to the entire interview below to hear Danny talk about buying a new house with a studio, his unreleased collaboration with The Avalanches, & more.
