Danny Brown Says He’s “The Best Rapper Ever” And Needs More Respect
Danny Brown recently chopped it up with Huff Post to discuss the expectations of his forthcoming album and his determination to prove himself as one of the greatest rappers alive. While there currently isn't a title, tracklist or cover art for the project, the 33-year-old Detroit rapper assures he's hard at work to deliver the best of the best for his fourth studio album.
"I just got to back up on this next album, and consistently prove that I'm always the most witty, the most unpredictable," he said, sitting in the makeshift greenroom on the boat's top level. "I got the best stories, the illest punchlines, the hottest interviews."
The "Smokin & Drinkin" artist received critical acclaim for his last studio album Old, which featured such artists as A$AP Rocky, ScHoolboy Q, Freddie Gibbs, Charli XCX, Ab-Soul and more. As for his new project, Brown believes it will contain fewer songs than the other albums because his capability to explore musical range no longer needs to be shown.
"It's probably going to be a shorter release than normal because I'm trying to glance perfection with this one," said Brown. "With previous projects I had to branch out and show my range. But with this one, I feel like people know what I can do and what I'm capable of, so now it's just time for me to show that I can make perfect. I still don't feel like I have the respect I deserve. I'm the best rapper ever and I need to be respected."
