You may recall Noisey sat down the blunt-blowing, fashion-forward pair of A$AP Rocky and Danny Brown for an interview earlier this year, but now it’s Germany’s splash! mag who get the scoop from the two emcees – separately this time.
In the first clip below, a voiceless (no prizes for guessing how he lost it) Rocky spoke on his “Ridin’” collaboration with Lana Del Rey and The KickDrums which was leaked, and which he stresses was an “unofficial” demo recording, how his track with Usher and Pharrell, “Hot Thing”, came about, the possibility of working with Lana again, and wanting to bump uglies with Cher (yup, Cher), before Diplo gatecrashed the interview.
Meanwhile, Danny talked classic Reebok sneakers, how his career and life has changed in the past few years, not wanting to make “gay” (albeit the immediate retraction) pop music, his love for Grime music and admiration of P Money, the “bittersweet” experience of contributing to J Dilla‘s posthumous album and more.
Watch both interviews below.
