Dana Dane (born Dana McLeese) is an American hip hop artist known for humorous lyrics (performed with a fake British accent) and for his fashion sense. He was born in the Walt Whitman housing project in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, in New York City, and began his career as part of the Kangol Crew with fellow emcee Slick Rick, to whom he sounded markedly similar, although Slick Rick's English lilt was actually genuine. His biggest hit in the United States was "Cinderfella Dana Dane", which peaked at #11 on Billboard magazine's R&B charts in 1987. His debut album peaked at #46 on the Billboard album chart and was certified gold by the RIAA. After a long stint at the legendary Profile Records, where he was one of that labels core artists, he recorded briefly for Rap-A-Lot Records, where he didnt release anything, and at Madonnas Maverick Records, where he released his last album to date in 1995.
