US rapper Danny Brown has said he’s planning to check into rehab. The news comes following an episode of The Danny Brown Show, during which the rapper accused his label, Warp Records, of holding back his Quaranta album.
After the episode, Brown tweeted that he had been “drunk and talking s–t,” and would be checking himself into a rehab treatment facility. “Aye chill out with all the #FreeDanny sh-t,” he wrote. “I was drunk and talking s–t and that’s why my dumb a– is checking into treatment tomorrow got nothing but love for Dart and Warp so chill out the album is mastered.”
The rapper went on to note that “alcohol is something I need to be done with cause it makes me hurt the people that care the most.” The rapper also expressed a desire to go to rehab during his recent SXSW performance. “At the end of the day, I’m 42 years old, sitting around smoking blunts all day, and getting drunk is getting old. Y’all have y’all fun but s–t could get dark,” Brown said [quotes via Billboard].
Brown added: “I’m going to get help. Honestly, my dumba– supposed to been gone, but I’m broke so I gotta do shows to take my a– in, so shoutout to Dr. Martens. Ima go do my lil time, but I will say this, I made so many songs about doing drugs … sometimes I feel bad about that s–t … if I f—ed your life up, I’m sorry.”
