[UPDATE] Watch Danny Brown reflect on life in Detroit in trailer for new documentary
Detroit rapper Danny Brown has always wanted to be a rap star, or so he proclaims in his upcoming documentary trailer, Live at the Majestic.
Directed by Andrew Cohn, the concert film/documentary showcases Brown’s origins in the city, his introspective tendencies, and how his hometown’s ethos shaped him as the candid rapper he is today.
Out now, the film follows the artist back to his stomping grounds of Detroit to perform his first-ever show at the city’s Majestic Theater.
Recently, in an interview with Complex about the film, the artist also revealed he’s working on his follow-up to last year’s Atrocity Exhibition. “Yeah. I’m working on my next album right now,” he said. “I can’t really talk too much about it. I would just say it’s being produced by one producer, who’s legendary in hip-hop. And it’s gonna be a big deal.”
Brown’s already worked with a multitude of legendary acts in the business, including the likes of Cypress Hill, Kendrick Lamar, Kelela and many more.
In a series of tweets, Brown revealed that Apple Music has apparently shelved the documentary.
It’s not coming out I’m sorry
