Danny Brown – who was once domed on stage – is working on a children’s novel to promote self-esteem in young Black women.

“You know how black women do so much – process their hair, change their eye color, do so much,” he says during an interview with Australia’s triple J radio station. “It’s really about a little girl who does all these things to herself and changes herself and she realizes she’s just better off the way she is.”

Danny also talked about for whom, specifically, the book was being written and by whom it was inspired.

“It’s something for my daughter,” he says. “I want it to be real Dr. Suess-y…I don’t know how Dr Suess did it. The Grinch, Green Eggs And Ham, and One Fish, Two Fish…I don’t know what was going on in that guy’s brain to be able to write those things?”

Danny Brown also discussed what’s been happening with him on the music side.

“[I’m] pretty much just working with the same producers I work with, Paul White and SKYWLKR,” he says. “I went to L.A. and worked with the Alchemist for like a week…I want to put out the best possible album I can put out with this one. [I] always gotta try and top myself and who else is better competition than yourself?”
