How else could we begin our introduction to what’s really going down in the Detroit music scene than with the incomparable Danny Brown? Danny was born and raised in Detroit and was exposed early on to house, soul, and hip-hop by his pops. In a music scene that birthed Slum Village and Dilla, it helps to know your history. No entry-level fluke, Danny Brown came on to the Detroit hip-hop scene in 2003 with the now-defunct crew Rese’vor Dogs. After cutting his teeth (no pun intended, we swear) for a good seven years, our dude landed on the national hip-hop heat map in 2010 with The Hybrid. If you’re not convinced Danny Brown reps Detroit hard, watch the Made in America doc above one more time.
