Danny Brown made more than just a great album this year, the "Combat" rapper also created a radio station for the fifth instalment of Rockstar video game, Grand Theft Auto. While users are cruising the streets and fighting whomever they need to, they can hear Danny's voice in the background and its for that reason why he can't play the game as freely as he once could.

"It’s hard when I’m involved. It’s amazing, I just hate to hear my own voice. It’s weird, it makes me a little bit shy. […] For some reason music is different for me.
