Danny Brown began his profession in 2007 by handing out mixtapes in Detroit, the place he’s from. In 2011, he put out his acclaimed second album, XXX. Since then, he’s collaborated with rappers like Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky and JPEGMafia, however he’s additionally labored with digital bands like Purity Ring and The Avalanches, and he did a verse on a remix for Korn.
