In the third of this week’s enticing reveals of our new issue’s four cover stars, today’s unveiling is Detroit rapper Danny Brown.
In an open and candid interview, Danny tells Clash of the emotional struggles he’s endured - from jail time aged 19 to quitting drugs in 2014 amid a turbulent media storm - and how they only serve to inspire him to persevere. “A negative situation happened to me, but when it becomes a positive to somebody else because they get entertained by it, it spins back on me and gives me positive energy,” he enlightens. “That’s one of the best joys in life to be honest with you.”
Interviewed by Grant Brydon, with photography by Jesse Jenkins, we find Danny in full fighting spirit: “I feel like Mayweather right now. I ain’t got no ills yet in my bouts. I’m still swinging.”
Also in the new issue are features with Dua Lipa, The Lemon Twigs, Slaves, Kim Gordon, Tory Lanez, SG Lewis, Paul Simon, RAY BLK, Dawn Richards and more, with over 35 pages of Clash Fashion.
