Brown was born in Detroit to very young parents, his mother being 18-years-old and his father being just 16 when they had him. The rapper is a quarter Filipino and he has said he wanted to be a rapper since kindergarten.
Originally growing up in Detroit’s Dexter-Linwood neighborhood, Brown later moved to a different city in Wayne County named Hamtramck. The artist has since remained in the area, but he and his family currently reside in the Linwood area of Michigan.
Time truly does fly because the emcee is already 40-years-old. In actuality, Brown’s rap career didn’t really take off until he was a year shy of 30, after linking up with Tony Yayo of G-Unit.
The Detroit spitter is the oldest of three siblings and growing up his two grandmothers helped his parents care for them. Brown attended high school at the Detroit Collegiate Preparatory Academy at Northwestern.
Meanwhile, his trademarked tooth gap was caused by a biking accident in the sixth grade. He didn’t get them fixed until 2017.

While none of his albums have sold a ton of copies, Brown has built a fanbase through his consistent and evolving craft. His most successful work was his 2016 Atrocity Exhibition album that featured appearances from Kendrick Lamar and Earl Sweatshirt.
Danny has made a sizeable portion of his net worth from touring, which he’s been steadily doing since 2011. Over the past decade, Brown has performed with acts such as Childish Gambino, Run the Jewels, Eminem, and many others. He’s also appeared at dozens of music festivals.

Brown has long been known as a funny person and a big fan of comedy. In 2021, he even made his debut as a stand-up comedian. After dipping his toes into the comedy world around 2015, Brown has appeared on The Eric Andre Show twice. In the past, he’s cited Dave Chappelle as being the goat of comedy.
In his stand-up debut, Brown opened for famed comedian Hannibal Burress. He also made a spot at Freddie Gibbs’ comedy show in Austin, Texas. The artist claimed that going on stage to do stand-up was 100x harder than rapping.
