The Future

Danny Brown: “I always liked style niggas. If you look at somebody like Cam’ron, he didn’t rap the same way every album—he was switching his style with every album. I was always a style nigga.

“I was a lyric nigga but I’m a style nigga too. Like lyrics go a long way but style go a long way too. So if you got different styles you can freak it—Ghostface was a style master. Freaking that shit with different styles, that’s ill to me.

 

I don’t know nothing [about the future], I just live day by day. Take Adderall, let it happen. I don’t plan for the future, I’m too old for that. The future is here.

 

“[For my next album] I’m experimenting more with double time. It’s me trying to find ways to incorporate a lot of crazy word play and punch lines—like do the same shit I would do in The Hybird but rap in double time.

“So that’s just bigger and faster and more power, that’s steroids and nitro. That’s me challenging myself; that’s like doing a 360. Just trying to figure that out, to just rush into it and using different voices in one verse. That type of shit where you can go, ‘Damn, that’s the same nigga that did that one verse.’ That shit is kind of ill to me now.
