Freeway & Danny Brown Take FADER Home

By / 11.22.11

Freeway and Danny Brown take FADER along for quick, candid trips through their respective stomping grounds of Philly and Detroit and down memory lane for the latest in the mag’s “Uncapped” video series.

“Freeway’s a walking fashion feature. Here he shows off symbolic jewelry honoring album releases and his group State Property, as well as the shirt off his back from a clothing line he’s developing. But there’s something deeper too, with Freeway crediting his rap career to a school-age love of violin and poetry. Born and raised Philly, in December Freeway traveled to Africa for the first time to perform, and you can tell he’s still proud and impressed by the places his music has taken him.”

“Danny Brown takes us to his childhood Detroit home, bringing back mixed nostalgic feelings: “I went to jail on this block, I got beat up on this block, I met girls on this block.” Brown sounds happy to have moved away, but he’s not afraid to reflect. Here’s a look at how he has turned his past life—and his new—into humor and great, honest music.”
