    WSRR 1/25 Rest in Beats Dangerous Dame rage

Sad news this morning going across the internet. We have gotten word that Oakland MC and Legend, Dangerous Dame has died. Damon D. Edwards, aka Dangerous Dame was the first Bay Area MC signed to a major label.

Dangerous Dame & DJ Dopecut – Jumpin (Cassette)

We first heard of Dame in the trucks of the East Bay with his Cassette release “Dangerous Dame, Jumpin”, locally produced and slang in hood stores and on street corners. It was a 7 song EP, with DJ Dopecut. This albums was known, most notably for “Jumpin”, which was a funky, fun, cut you could dance to..

“I Got What You Want” – Dangerous Dame

In 1990, Dangerous Dame was signed to Atlantic Records, the first Bay Area Rap Artist signed to a major label. He released “I Got What You Want,” with the hit”I Call Your Name.” “I Call Your Name” was notable, because it was also one of the first Bay Area Rappers to get radio play in the Bay Area, along with other artists such as MC Hammer, and Capital Tax, all out of Oakland Ca.

“Make Room 4 Daddy” – Dangerous Dame

He would release “Same Ole Dame” 1992, “Make Room 4 Daddy” (1994), “Escape from the Mental Ward” 1995 on No Limit Records, and “Haven’t You Heard” 1999 under the name Saucy.

“Haven’t You Heard” – Saucy
“Escape from the Mental Ward” – Dangerous Dame

Throughout his career in the Rap Game, Dame would release Oakland, and Bay Area Classics.. like “The Bomb”, which was heard every damn day bumping out the trucks in Oakland in 1992. In 1996, he appeared with Mac Dre on the 1st Rompilation, on the cut “Gumbo” with JT The Bigga Figga, and Da Unda Dog, and 1997 the super classic “Same Ole Shit” on the “Notorious Pimps, Playa’s and Hustlas” Compilation. He left the rap scene in the late 90s, after after affects of drug abuse. Dame’s faculties, brain and lyricism would not stand up, and he forever was a different person in the streets of Oakland. A cautionary tale to up and coming artists, he was once known as the best Bay Area MC, over MC Hammer, Too Short, and E40. We salute this man’s life, his contribution to the Rap Game and Bay Area History. Stay Tuned to this Special Edition of Westside Ridah Report in his honor.
