Danny Brown Wasn’t On ‘Hella Hoes’ Due To Record Label Decision

Danny Brown in NYC Interview Street Eats

After A$AP Mob dropped their bangin’ single, “Hella Hoes,” Danny Brown took to Twitter to let the world know that his verse was cut from the song. Brown was obviously upset, especially after paying for studio time himself and recording his bars while on the road and not being told by the Mob themselves that he wouldn’t appear on the final product. Over the weekend, Danny Brown sat down with Complex TV at Bonnaroo to clear up any rumors of a rift between Brown and the Mob.

“I was so hurt about the whole thing because those are my brothers,” said Brown. “We used to ante up on dime bags together. People don’t know that A$AP Rocky’s first performance ever was opening up for me at the XXX release party. At the end of the day, it was a label thing. It had nothing to do with us.

“In some sense it was a good thing because it made us that much tighter, if you have disagreements as friends and you can work past that, you’re family for life. All it was, they asked me to do a song, I didn’t really have time to do the song, finally figured out a way to do the song, and when I did the song, they cut the verse. It wasn’t they decision, it was an RCA decision. Them putting out the first single should be an A$AP song with no guest features….Me and Rocky making music right now, that’s my brother.”

Danny is currently making his festival rounds before going overseas to open for Eminem at London’s Wembley Stadium. A$AP Mob’s L.O.R.D. is still waiting for a release date.
