Danny Brown on ‘Magna Carta…Holy Grail’ & ‘Yeezus’
During a new interview with The Huffington Post, Danny Brown touched on two of the more recent high-profile hip hop releases. Brown shared his thoughts on both Jay-Z's Magna Carta… Holy Grail and Kanye West's Yeezus.
On Jay-Z’s Magna Carta… Holy Grail:
"At the end of the day, Jay-Z always says he’s ‘the Michael Jordan of rap’ and shit, and this was like when Jordan played for the Wizards and bought the team. He got a deal to sell a million records and he did it."
On Kanye West’s Yeezus:
"It stood for exactly what I stood for, being progressive with rap music. If someone like him is sticking his neck out in his position, and saying, ‘Let’s be experimental,’ and now being experimental is cool, then that does nothing but help somebody like me… He can’t do Danny Brown, though, so I don’t care. No matter how weird he gets, it’s still not Danny Brown weird."
