Earlier this month Danny Brown was interviewed by The Fader. While speaking with the magazine about Detroit Danny Brown brought up fellow native Big Sean, questioning his authenticity. Below is an excerpt of the interview where Danny spoke about Sean.    "Are you proud to be from Detroit? I probably talked to you about this [for the FADER feature]. A lot of rappers are always about repping they hood, but for me it’s always about getting out the hood. I moved to Royal Oak, that’s where I still stay. I love Michigan. I might not like Detroit so much, but I love Michigan. Don’t get me wrong—I do love Detroit, I just know we got problems. You listen to how I talk about Detroit, and you listen to how a rapper like Big Sean talk about Detroit, and it’s like we’re talking about two different cities. Which is probably true, because Detroit is that type of city—he went to the best high school in the city, you know, he probably was real spoiled or sheltered, so it’s like two different worlds. He can look at it and talk about guap, and we don’t have any. It’s funny, I don’t think of him as from Detroit. To me he’s just a rapper on the radio. A lot of people in Detroit don’t consider him that either. They say he from LA now. He ain’t been to the hood in years, and I wouldn’t either if I was him, to be honest. It’s not a bad thing. I’m in the hood every day now, so I see the faces, I see the desperation. I have a studio now that’s five minutes from where I was born."   During a recent interview on SiriusXM's Hip Hop Nation Big Sean responded to Danny Brown's diss, although without directly mentioning his name. At the 6:54 mark Sean closes out the interview with: "Fuck whoever talking about Big Sean don't know nothing about Detroit, or the streets of Detroit. I be in there, matter fact not only do I be there and be in the hood, I be helping the hood and giving back to the hood. Matter fact I'm the only one outta ya'll rappers or even new rappers who was paying for Thanksgiving dinners last year, buying Christmas'. So if you ever talking shit about me, like I don't be up in the hood, you crazy. Period!"

"Are you proud to be from Detroit?

I probably talked to you about this [for the FADER feature]. A lot of rappers are always about repping they hood, but for me it’s always about getting out the hood. I moved to Royal Oak, that’s where I still stay. I love Michigan. I might not like Detroit so much, but I love Michigan. Don’t get me wrong—I do love Detroit, I just know we got problems. You listen to how I talk about Detroit, and you listen to how a rapper like Big Sean talk about Detroit, and it’s like we’re talking about two different cities.

He can look at it and talk about guap, and we don’t have any.

It’s funny, I don’t think of him as from Detroit. To me he’s just a rapper on the radio.

A lot of people in Detroit don’t consider him that either. They say he from LA now. He ain’t been to the hood in years, and I wouldn’t either if I was him, to be honest. It’s not a bad thing. I’m in the hood every day now, so I see the faces, I see the desperation. I have a studio now that’s five minutes from where I was born."
