Young Dane the son of HipHop legend and icon Dana Dane was born in the Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. He resided in Virginia, Houston and LA before settling down in Yonkers, NY with his mother. As a student of Lincoln high school, Young Dane joined theater and excelled as an actor in many school plays some of which he assisted in writing and revising with his acting teachers.
Like so many children born into the HipHop generation Dane was exposed to the music and culture at a very young age. At the age of twelve Young Dane wrote and recorded his first song with a classmate. It was natural. From then on unbeknownst to his father Young Dane continued writing and reciting raps. Dane says “My dad I had no idea I was into making music and rapping like I do, he was really surprised to find out I could sing as well.” Dane’s singing will be a key to his success. Multi talented artist such as Kanye West, Pharrell, Drake, Diggy Simmons, Chris Brown and more who incorporate their own singing vocals on to their own rap tracks are the most successful in the industry today.
Young Dane has discovered his voice and is set to release his debut Mix Tape album “Adventures of the Flawed Dreamer: Escape from Apathy”. Young Dane states,” This collection of songs were inspired and influenced by such artists as Nas, Slick Rick, A Tribe called Quest, Mos Def, and Lupe Fiasco amongst others. His inspiration for the Mixtape comes from an introspective angle, speaking on inner feelings derived from his experiences in life. Combining his knowledge of theater with music, Young Dane plans to split the Mixtape into five acts. Each act is to display and transition the story of "Escape from apathy" creating a world within the music.
Young Dane is steadily carving his own artistic design into the fabric of the Hip Hop culture.
Info on Make Up Your Mind: The perfect relationship, when it comes down to it, is what most of us are in search for. The reality is there is no such thing as “a perfect relationship”. You have to put in the work. “Relationships, easy to get into, hard to maintain”, as Chris Rock would say, is truth. Anyone can find a compatible partner but are you able to work as a team when the going gets tough? You get as much out of your relationship as you put into it. Make Up Your Mind is a relationship based song. Take a listen to the chorus; the lyrics may resonate in your current and/or past situation. If and/or when you are in the midst of “tough times”, what do you do? Do you grow together or do you grow apart?

PITTSBURGH, PA - J. SANDS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE DATE FOR K.R.SANDS THE MIXTAPE 8/8/2011
K.R.SANDS THE MIXTAPE RELEASE FROM J. SANDS MIXED BY DJ BONICS
"BUCKS FOR BONICS HEALTH AWARENESS CAMPAIGN"
The Pittsburgh hip-hop community received a jolt December 2, 2010 when Brandon “DJ Bonics” Glova suffered a heart attack. He was only 30.
Fortunately, Glova was able to recover and continue working as Wiz Kalifha’s tour DJ.
But Glova’s health situation -- and that he didn’t have medical insurance at the time of the incident-- underscores the health shortcomings of the hip-hop community, many of whom put their bodies through tremendous wear and tear and do so without healthcare and without regular check-ups at the doctor.
In order to bring awareness to the healthcare crisis in the hip-hop community, BUKA Entertainment along with J. Sands are proud to present K.R.Sands The Mixtape, the second mixtape from J. Sands mixed by DJ Bonics.
The mixtape will be used to support DJ Bonics and his foundation with our ‘Bucks for Bonics’ campaign. All of the money donated will go to help DJ Bonics' cause to bring awareness to heart disease.
During the 60 day 'Bucks for Bonics' campaign, we will be supplying information on the importance of having health insurance, testaments from people who have had their own health situations and other tidbits related to this movement.
This is more than just music. It’s about our health.
It’s time for the hip-hop community to start taking care of itself.
