On Track with the Needle Drop – Danny Brown

Issue 08 cover star Danny Brown is fresh from the release of his critically acclaimed album, Atrocity Exhibition, an undoubted triumph for boundary pushing hip-hop.

Danny is also the second artist to step up to Skype’s On Track with the Needle Drop interview series. Curated by Athony Fantano — of the Needle Drop, self appointed as the “internet’s busiest music nerd” — it’s a rare video interview with the Detroit rapper and he’s in playful mood as they cover a diverse range of topics including his musical influences and inspirations (which range from Korn to TLC), longevity in hip-hop, the rock versus rap divide (and why that’s Fred Durst’s fault) and much more.  

In an unexpected turn, Danny and Anthony are joined on the call by Mike Skinner, aka The Streets, who questions Danny on the techno sound of his new album, Christmas jumpers, new grills, and the time Schoolboy Q got him drunk.
