Danny Brown is a misfit. He hails from Detroit, but favoring skinny jeans and vintage tees, he hardly looks the part of a street-hardened rapper. In fact, Brown’s atypical fashion sense is the reason 50 Cent reportedly refused to sign the MC to his G-Unit label. Brown’s music is similarly unconventional, pairing bleak, honest tales of life in the Motor City with musical influences as far flung as UK Grime and prog rock. That unorthodox mashup of cultural touchstones has earned him one of the most appropriate nicknames in modern music: the Hybrid. Brown plays the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington this Thursday, April 3, with Bodega Bamz and ZelooperZ.
