ALI SHAHEED MUHAMMAD: A lot of love for you. And just the content — it’s people out there that’s not gonna understand or connect with it but I don’t know if you remember the first thing I said to you about your music. I said, “Yo, you like …”
DANNY BROWN: Richard Pryor.
MUHAMMAD: That’s right.
FRANNIE KELLEY: You did? What?
MUHAMMAD: He remembers.
MUHAMMAD: I was like, “Yo, you like the hip-hop Richard Pryor.”
BROWN: That’s real.
BROWN: And I got it, too: making things funny that don’t supposed to be funny. It’s almost like you can be socially conscious, in a way, and entertain people, too. It’s like putting the pill in the pudding.
