Danny Brown Relates Music Business To Selling Crack

Posted By on October 2, 2013

Danny Brown recently sat down with XXL to discuss his new album Old. During the interview, he touched on his approach to the music business, an dhow it’s very similar to selling crack.

“To me it’s no different than when I was selling crack,” said Danny Brown. “If I didn’t sell crack before I’d probably be learning some shit, but to me it’s the exact same shit. So I just applied what I learned then and I use it now.”


Brown went on to discuss the challenges and obstacles of growing up in his hometown of Detroit.

“At that time I was a little impressionable,” said the Old crafter. “I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, but the only reason I did know was I had so many people around me talking negative. I was in a place where nobody had any options so a lot of my friends wanted me to stick around and sell drugs with them.”
