Danny Brown wants his respect.

Danny Brown wants to be acknowledged for all of his lyrical abilities and he wants that acknowledgment now.

"I'm the best rapper ever and I need to be respected," Brown told the Huffington Post in an interview that was published online on Tuesday.

Despite receiving rave reviews for his 2013 album Old, Brown seems to be dissatisfied with the lack of accolades coming his way. Just two weeks ago, he announced -- via Instagram -- that he has started to work on a new album.

While details on the project remain under wraps, the 33-year-old Detroit native still believes he has something to prove.

"I got the best stories, the illest punchlines, the hottest interviews," he explained. “I just got to back up on this next album, and consistently prove that I'm always the most witty, the most unpredictable.”

With Old, Brown gave fans 19 tracks, but he says his upcoming effort won’t be nearly as lengthy.

“It's probably going to be a shorter release than normal because I'm trying to glance perfection with this one," he said. "With previous projects I had to branch out and show my range. But with this one, I feel like people know what I can do and what I'm capable of, so now it's just time for me to show that I can make perfect."
