In a world dominated by pop stars and radio rap, Danny Brown has always existed as something of an outlier, spitting strange, caustic bars over unsettling, discordant beats. Given Brown’s combustible flow, it makes sense that the Detroit MC (one of the most requested guests in Hot Ones history) would bring his own oddball sensibilities to his highly anticipated Scoville showdown.
While Brown’s missing tooth gave him an advantage when it came to wolfing down the wings, nothing could prepare the rapper for the mind-numbing intensity of sauces like Mad Dog 357 and Pain 100%. In episodes past, guests have coped with the scorching power of the sauces by smashing plates over their heads, or pouring out buckets of sweat, but Brown simply lets out fits of blood-curdling, primal laughter.
After sharing anecdotes from the Gathering of the Juggalos, and giving a heart-wrenching monologue about his love for his cats, Brown concluded his Hot Ones debut with a capsaicin-induced orgasm. This is a Hot Ones for the history books.
