Watch Danny Brown’s New ‘Ain’t It Funny’ Video Directed by Jonah Hill
Danny Brown gives his song "Ain't It Funny" the visual treatment with the help of Jonah Hill, who directs the new video. The two craft a bizarre video that imagines Brown as the uncle in an old sitcom.
Brown's antics aren't so much wacky as they are disturbing, complete with a cry for help regarding his drug abuse. The Detroit MC's Atrocity Exhibition cut only adds to the grim picture as he spits about his addiction.
"Staring in the devil face/But ya can't stop laughing/It’s a living nightmare/That most of us might share/Inherited in our blood/It's why we stuck in the mud/Can’t quit the drug use/Or the alcohol abuse/Even if I wanted to/Tell you what I’m gonna do/I’ma wash away my problems/With this bottle of Henny/Anxiety got the best of me/So popping them Xannies/Might need rehab/But to me that shit pussy/Pray for me y’all/Cause I don't know what coming to me," Brown raps.
On a lighter note, Brown recently revealed that he was the Detroit rapper who got Dave Chappelle high before a show in Motown.
“Haven’t seen Dave new special but heard he gotta bit about that night I got him stoned to the gills … momma I made it!!!, Brown wrote on Instagram.
Chappelle spoke about the incident in his new Netflix special. The comedian riffed on reports of him being drunk at a Detroit show and revealed that he simply smoked some potent weed.
“I don’t know if you ever saw on TMZ, the big headline: Dave Chappelle drunk on stage in Detroit,” Dave said during his show. “I wasn’t drunk. I had smoked some reefer with some rappers. I don’t know if you know anything about hanging out with rappers, but their weed is very strong – stronger than what I was accustomed to.”
