Danny Brown gave an emphatic onstage speech in Austin over the weekend after UK rapper Ashnikko endured taunts during her set.
The UK rapper made one of her first trips to the United States to support Danny Brown on tour, performing live after a series of vital singles.
Shockingly, her performance was spoiled by one attendee heckling her throughout, shouting that her "music sucks" before putting his headphones on.
Ashnikko has worked with Danny Brown before, and the American artist paused his performance mid-set to launch into a defence of her music.
It's a fantastic moment - Ashnikko certainly didn't deserve to be treated like that, and his love for her music is superbly articulated.
last night some lame ass dude was heckling me n shouting that my “music sucks” while I was onstage. put his own headphones on & nearly had me in fuckin tears midset. Then @xdannyxbrownx comes onstage & stops his show to say this! a legend! I will never stop singin his praises https://t.co/A6KEN1MBQq— Ashnikko (@ashnikko) October 19, 2019
