Danny Brown is transforming last year’s Bruiser Brigade Thanksgiving show into an annual event for charity. On November 25th, the rapper will perform at Detroit’s Majestic Theater for the Bruiser Brigade II holiday show.
This year, Brown will be partnering with InsideOut Detroit’s City Wide Poets Project (CWP) and will be raising money via a fundraising page for both CWP and the Detroit Public School system. The pledge drive aims to help put a poet in every Detroit classroom and will end on November 12th. On top of the show and the fundraising page, Brown will also be hosting a poetry workshop aimed for teens and young adults in Detroit as well.
Earlier this year, the rapper announced plans to release a Dr. Seuss-inspired children’s book written for his 13-year-old daughter. “It’s really about self-esteem in black girls,” he said during an interview with radio station Triple J. “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.” No release date has been announced for the book.
Brown is currently on tour with A$AP Rocky, Tyler, the Creator and Vince Staples. The ‘Rocky and Tyler’ launched on September 19th in Lowell, Massachusetts and will tentatively end on November 15th in San Francisco, though the tour site promises more dates to be announced soon.
