Danny Brown's "Grown Up" video made our The Best 25 Music Videos of 2012 (So Far) list, and one of the main reasons was Dante Hoagland, the star of the video who portrays a young Danny Brown. From the clothes to the moves, Dante had Danny's style down pat. He even had the missing front teeth. 

In this interview, Dante talks about how exciting it was to play Danny in his first music video ever, the audition process and practicing the song with his mom the night before, his favorite part of the video, and the part of the video he thought was the funniest. He also shares his own personal dream, and some advice for the kids out there his age coming up. This is one cool, and talented, little dude. Watch above.
