Hes dropped 10 albums, including three instrumentals and a Best Of just to be funny, says the MC. Hes been on the shortlist for the Grammys, charted on Billboard, retired, and inevitably returned.
Yet, South Carolina-reared, Atlanta-based MC/producer Danny Swain, aka Danny!, still considers his upcoming show opening for rap phenom Drake on May 2 as his official coming-out party.
When Danny! emerged in 2004 with his debut, The College Kicked-Out, after being expelled from Claflin University following an alleged cheating scandal, he didnt expect his career to move so slowly. His above-average, sample-heavy production and sometimes self-deprecating lyrics shouldve landed him on every bloggers hit list with the cyber rappers of the day. It didnt.
