Detroit Artist Danny Brown Says ‘Old’ Chief Keef Scared Him



Maybe it’s the harsh tales of the ghetto plight he lived. Or maybe it’s the tenacity of the drill music he has perfected. Whatever the case, many people are threatened by Chief Keef’s aura.

Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Julian has labeled the Intercope artist, who is serving 60 days in the Illinois Youth Center for violating probation, a “tough guy.”

Chief Keef’s music is laced with profanity, drug use and violence.

Detroit artist Danny Brown sat down with Pitchfork Media to reveal he prefers the younger Chief Keef because he “scared” him.

“I like his older mixtapes a little better though, because old Chief Keef scared me– I thought he was about to pop up out of nowhere with a hoodie on and shoot me. But I’m not really scared of Finally Rich,” he said.

“Laughing to the Bank,” he said, is his favorite song.

“My favorite song of his is “Laughing to the Bank.” That’s some Sex Pistols-type s---,” he told Pitchfork Media. “Remember when everybody said that Odd Future was punk rock? To me, Chief Keef is totally punk rock. Like, the melodies he uses on his album– it’s like he’s not even rapping no more, he’s just singing. You could swap those synths and keyboards with guitars and f------ crazy drums and he’ll be a rock star.”
