Danny Brown is writing a children’s book, naturally. He’s writing the book with his 13 year old daughter in mind. “It’s really about self-esteem in black girls,” he explains on Australian radio station triple j during promotions for his tour. “You know how black women do so much – process their hair, change their eye color? 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.”
He says that Dr. Seuss is one of the biggest influences on his writing. “I don’t know how Dr. Seuss did it. I don’t know how he wrote The Grinch and Green Eggs And Ham and One Fish, Two Fish – what was going on in that guy’s brain to be able to write those things?”
You can listen to the complete interview below, he also touches on his album that’s also being worked on at the moment.
