From: EPMD "Jane" (1988), EPMD "Jane II" (1989), EPMD "Jane 3" (1990), EPMD "Who Killed Jane?" (1992), EPMD "Jane 5" (1997), EPMD "Jane 6" (1999), EPMD "Jane" (2008)

Who they were: Jane is probably the longest-running fictional rap character in hip-hop history. Although she made her debut back in 1988 on the original "Jane," EPMD has now recorded a song about Jane on every single album that they've ever put out. She's taken a variety of different forms over the years—"Jane 3," wherein Jane turns out to be a guy named Mike, was easily the weirdest of the bunch—but she just won't go away. So if EPMD ever gets around to recording another album, we can pretty much guarantee you that Jane will make her return.

Where are they now? Sitting in a club somewhere wondering when Erick Sermon and PMD are going to show up. Anytime now, guys...
