31. Dana Dane "Nightmares" (1987)
Producer: Hurby Luv Bug
Album: Dana Dane with Fame
Label: Profile Records
Dana Dane is an MC from Fort Green, Brooklyn, who's debut album, Dana Dane with Fame, was his landmark record. Released in 1987, it went Gold, and "Nightmares" was one of the more popular songs from the album. But with the changing sound of rap, Dane's style fell out of favor, and by the time he dropped his follow-up in 1990, he was something of an afterthought.
