Name: Daniel Dewan Sewell a.k.a Danny Brown
Born: March 16, 1981
Danny was born in Detroit, Michigan to relatively young parents. (His mom was 17 when she had him) He talent started young, when his mother use to read Dr. Suess books to him. His father was a house DJ, who exposed Danny to musical up rise. His parents sheltered him from the Detroit crime, buying him the newest video games and trying to keep him in the house. His mom worked for Crysler. Eventually she was able to buy four to five houses.
”To this day we still got those houses. She owns three houses in a row on that block. She raised her three children and a host of others in the middle house; the one to the left she paid cash for in the 90’s from her long time neighbor; and the one on the right was her parents home that she inherited when they died.”
On the East Side, I used to get beat up all the time. [Laughs.] I had nobody over there and I’m the oldest with two brothers and a younger sister. And I’m kind of not really gangster like that. [Laughs.]”,
”I got out of jail in ’07. I took it serious from that time but it took a lot of shit to happen in my life to get me confident to know I could do it. I had more confidence when I got out of jail because the day when I got out of jail I started selling weed. I ain’t had no money after the first two months, like, ‘I was way better off in jail.’ By then I was already making my New York trips and going to recording studios so I was already serious when I got locked up. When I got out it was like, ‘It’s now or never.’”
He later was featured in XXL’s 2012 Freshmen class, along side artist such as Hopsin, French Montana, Machine Gun Kelly, Iggy Azalea, Roscoe Dash, etc.
