The video for Danny Brown’s “Grown Up” is one of our favorite FG clips of all time – and the rest of y’all seem to like it a bunch as well! Pitchfork spoke to director Greg Brunkalla and the clip’s star, child actor Dante Hoagland (aka Young Danny Brown) for their Director’s Cut interview series and got the lowdown on tooth-related special effects, filming with Harlem as a stand-in for Detroit, cursing in front of moms, and more.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if the Bruiser Brigade had their own McLaughlin Group roundtable show? News and commentary on the issues of the day… bitch.

For more Skywlkr beats, check his Bandcamp, and for more POTW Bruiser coverage, check their extremely thorough “making of XXX” piece. (And PBS get at us about the show!)
