Danny Brown spent his blizzard-filled weekend by responding to fan questions on Twitter, commenting on artists including Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Natalie Prass and Sufjan Stevens.

As Pitchfork notes, when the Detroit rapper was asked about perhaps playing a video game on the popular streaming platform Twitch, he said he might in promotion for his new album. Hopefully that and other tweets point to a 2016 release of the follow-up to 2013's Old.

But most of the interactions were more frivolous and silly than that. Perhaps the most unexpected reveal came when Brown said his favorite albums of 2015 were Stevens' Carrie & Lowell and Prass' self titled album. For those unfamiliar with of these two artists, Stevens plays devastatingly personal folk music and Prass performs poppy folk rock tunes that boarder on a show-tune style. So it's a little more than surprising that Danny Brown, the off-the-wall gangster rapper with a humorous tone that is accentuated by his goofy persona, would connect with this music so heavily.

Stevens is a Detroit native like Brown, so there's a connection there, especially since the rapper said his favorite album from the folk singer is Michigan. He even admitted that he cries listening to Carrie & Lowell as it makes him think of his parents (don't we all). Prass is a little more unexpected, yet, it sounds as if the two may be working together on his new album.

When asked about his favorite Kendrick album - To Pimp A Butterfly or good kid m.A.A.d city - he slyly responded Section 80.

On his favorite Kanye album, Brown said he turns to Late Registration and Yeezus.

Perhaps one of the funnier tweets came when he was asked about Kid Cudi's new rap/rock album Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven... he had a few choice words.
