Why Gathering of Juggalos Is Danny Brown's Favorite Festival

From huge festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza to smaller fests like Canada's NXNE and Squamish, Danny Brown is set to have a lot of fun on the road this summer. But when Fuse caught up with the Old rapper at Bonnaroo, he told us his favorite moment was a gig most are too scared to play—the Gathering of the Juggalos, of course.

"It was such a tense thing for me to do it," the Detroit native tells Fuse's Esteban Serrano. "Everybody was trying to talk me out of it, all my booking agents. I'm like, 'No! Them homies from Detroit. That's ICP!' If they ask me to do it, that's a honor. I was doing interviews and people were constantly asking me, 'Are you scared of something going wrong?' I'm from Detroit, man! 

"Anyway we did the show, it went great. People were worried about people throwing Faygos. I love Faygo. They threw Faygos, one of my homies caught it, started drinking it. The crowd loved us."

Danny also revealed new details about his upcoming project with his Bruiser Brigade, a hip-hop collective of rappers he came up with. 

"We're about 25 percent done with it," he says of the record. "I'm trying to get it out maybe in the fall...We've been working on this way before I started working on [Brown's 2013 album] Old. It sounds like Wu-Tang at a rave. Imagine Wu-Tang electronic." Already sounds good to us.
