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. Until that glorious moment occurs, we’ll have to make do with interviews like this one, where Danny Brown’s go-to producer Skywlkr talks beatmaking, metal and more with the always on-point Passion Of The Weiss. 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!)

“He endeavors to explore the subject in such descriptive ways that we wonder if might not be some sort of crotch scientist, someone who’s so much more than a rapper, someone who is doing all of this hard work for the betterment of mankind. He steps away from the mic, exists the live room and is gone without another word. Just a saggy handshake and something like an unspoken exchange that he’s got to get back to work. There’s more research to be done. There are more answers that he seeks.”
Check out an interview with Cubic Zirconia over at Stark talking about the craziness that was the Fool’s Gold 4 Year Anniversary party, making the “New York album” that would become Follow Your Heart (out now on FG), the good Doctor Dre, and much more.
