The recent news about West Virginia University football coach in waiting Dana Holgorsen naturally got me to thinking about Dana Dane.
That’s because I
can’t keep a straightforward train of thought my brain synapses don’t always work in a straight line I’m not really sure.
Dana Holgorsen, of course, is the Norse God of Offense. And he got in trouble recently for letting his Loki side get somewhat out of hand at a Cross Lanes casino. My bigger question: How fun can a Cross Lanes casino possibly be at 3 in the morning?
I digress as usual, not that I was really ever gressing.
I looked up Dana Dane, a pre-90s rap star, and he has no similarities whatsoever.
Dana Dane’s real name is Dana McLeese and he grew up on Brooklyn, although he rapped with a British accent. His debut, “Dana Dane with Fame,” peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard album chart in 1987. His biggest single was “Cinderfella Dana Dane,” which reached No. 11 on Billboard’s R&B charts.
Anyway, I mention it mostly just to post this video. But if the untold story of Dana Holgorsen is that he picked up a mic and started busting rhymes at the racetrack in the early morning hours, why then who could fault him for that? Anyhow, press play and imagine the rapper is actually Dana Holgorsen rockin’ the Mardi Gras Casino house.
