17. Danny Brown Performs at Shepard Fairey's Art Basel Miami Event
Date: December 5
To kick off Art Basel Miami 2012, Danny Brown did a special performance at Shepard Fairey's event at Bardot. The moment was an important one, marking Fairey's new mural at Basel and Brown's continued musical rise in 2012. Shepard Fairey himself got the crowd ready for Brown's performance with an energetic DJ set.
In a video with VIBE beforehand, Fairey admitted to being a fan of Brown's music, while Brown told Rolling Stone, "To be honest, this is my first time hearing about him. I'm not really into, like, art. The most art I'm into is video games." Here's to hoping Brown makes more art-related appearances in 2013, with or without Fairey.
