Bumbershoot Festival 2014

Known for making his fans turn all the way upDanny Brown is gearing up to tackle a much tamer task for the younger crowd: a children’s book.

The Detroit rapper is giving back to the community in hopes of changing young black girls’ lives. In a recent interview with Australia’s Triple J radio, Brown gave details about his new venture, which was inspired by watching his 13-year-old daughter grow up. He explained:

“It’s something for my daughter… I’ve got to finish it though, I want it to be real Dr. Seuss-y. The Grinch, Green Eggs And Ham, and One Fish, Two Fish.

Brown continued:

“It’s been taking me forever to finish. It’s really about self-esteem in black girls, I guess.

You know how black women do so much — process their hair, change their eye color. It’s really about a little girl who does all these things to herself and changes herself and she realizes she’s just better off the way she is.”

It’s great to see musicians utilize their platform to make a difference in the world. We can’t wait to read Danny’s new book.
