    Even tho it was clear he got his swagger and rhyme style from Slick Rick heads still enjoyed Dana's music because he made great records and had one of the greatest producers of the 80's doing his beats (Hurby Luv Bug) plus he was in a group with Slick Rick before their debut albums dropped so he got that co sign from Slick Rick

    I c/s this thread.

    Dana Dane was cool, but MC Ricky D was a beast..

    Its fukked up but ever since "The Show" Dana Dane got left in the dust of Slick Ricks career, and focused moved onto him..

    Yeah atleast Dana got his shine on before Ricky dropped an album
    :ehh:

    The Show came out in 1985 and we didn't hear nothing from Rick again until 1988

    Dana Dane With Fame album came out in 87 and heads bumped that album up until Slick Rick came thru and showed the real Art of Stortelling

    Once I did the science and realized Dana was a fraud, I was done with him. He doesn't exist to me, he's worse than Big Bank Hank. It hurts to feel this way too because I loved Dana back in the days. Him fraud. As far as I'm concerned he can....

    i don't see it that way. Dana and Rick went to school together and was in the same group. Its very common for members of a group to have the same style as one another. Look at Bone Thugs, Onyx, Das Efx. All of them Rap and dress the same

    Slick Rick and Dana Dane was in the Get Fresh Crew together. The real reason Dana catches flack for sounding like a group member is because of the putting on a British accent and he's from Brooklyn. But that's no big deal if u think about it Slick Rick was fronting with the accent too.. even tho Rick was born in London he grew up in Ny and didn't Really have that accent by the late 80's. Listen to old interviews he spoke just as New York as Dana Dane

    Nah breh, no reasoning or excuse can change my mind on his fake accent raps. I know the whole history of why he catches flack and what not. Rick can speak like WHERE HE'S FROM, so you can't use that as a point. There's a difference of dressing and acting like your group member, but you're not supposed to talk exactly like him, no one has done that and made a career off of it. He's the same as Pac, fraud.

    Slick Rick didn't trip on it and the majority of Hiphop fans didn't trip on it either

    When Dana Dane With Fame album dropped we didn't really have a real attachment to Slick Rick yet....
    :manny:
    we only heard Rick on 2 songs that we loved then he vanished for a few years... Rick was viewed as Doug E Fresh's side kick more or less in 85

    Dana dropped a whole album using that style before Rick and u can't front...if u was around back then u know Dana's album was hot in the streets

    In 87 nobody was crying about Dana sounding like Slick Rick.

    IF I was around back then???? I know how hot he was, I was there. All you typed , I understand that, I do. I'm just telling you why I see him as the fraud he is. And FYI, it doesn't matter who dropped FIRST, it matters who was legit and who wasn't. He dropped his album first using RICK'S style:what: and nothing you can say will change the facts. Like I said in my initial post, "it HURTS to feel this way too because I loved Dana back in the days". Let's not forget that part.

    Dana Dane wasn't from England, the record executives told him to rap with an English accent to sound like MC Ricky D from the hit record "The Show". and he came off sounding more English than Rick

    They used to be a part of the same crew (The Kangol Crew) and his record was fresh so nobody tripped on him but when Great Adventures was released, that album effectively ended Dana Dane's career because Slick Rick was legitimately from England and had come out first.

    Dana Dane had no identity after so he just tried to replicate the success of "Dana dane with fame" in two different rap eras which flopped horribly ...wtf is his appeal at this point??
    "Fake Slick Rick is BACK!" :russ: "Rick's in jail buy my shyt":scust: "remember me?" :mjgrin:

    yeah I agree with you that he used Slick Rick's style

    I guess what I'm trying to say is Dana Dane is different from dudes like The Realist or Guerrilla Black. They never met 2 PAC & Biggie and tryed to sound like them after Pac and Biggie already came and went Leaving a huge Impact on Hiphop. And The Realist, Guerrilla Black made terrible music.

    Dana Dane dropped an album that me and you agree we loved... and he dropped this album before Slick Rick made an Impact on Hiphop with the Great Adventures album

    So back to my OP all I'm saying is Dana Dane held us down with a good album until Slick Rick dropped a classic

    Did he swagger jack Slick Rick? Yes

    Was HipHop heads loving the Dana Dane With Fame album? Yes. No doubt about it
