"Gay Chicago says..."

"Combining the venom of Eminem with the in-your-face sexuality of Lil' Kim, [Johnny Dangerous'] Dangerous Liaisons offers a raunchy ride-with a flow that's as smooth and raw as a well-lubed bareback assault." - Gay Chicago


"LIL' HIM"

He's "the world's most dangerous faggot MC," and he's gonna be as nasty as he wants to be!

Johnny Dangerous is the man who lives in 50 Cent's most homophobic nightmare. He's a Chicago-based rapper who rhymes his way into men's pants and pulls no punches when talking about gay sex. At 5 foot 6, Dangerous is short, yes, but his mouth makes up for any lack of height. His independent release "Dangerous Liaisons" features the best filthy sex talk of any gay rapper we've heard so far... - Unzipped


""Dangerous" CD Sparks Debate"

...[Johnny Dangerous'] CD debut varies in beat and attitude, and is full of near equal measures of vengeance and gun... For those who like their hip hop hard, Johnny proves he's got it on "Dangerous Liaisons." - Philadelphia Gay News


"Seeing Spots"

...If you have not heard the new record by Johnny Dangerous, then you are not so hip, are ya? THIS CHILD HAS TURNED THE RAP WORLD OVER AND IS FUCKING IT DRY IN IT'S HOMOPHOBIC ASS! His record is so good that I cannot stop listening to it. [I'm] turned on to the "Dangerous" sound, and now I'm hooked. You go, boy... -Joan Jett-Blakk - Nightspots


"Beat-Boys"

(About the first annual PEACE-OUT showcase in New York City, July 2004)

... My excitement however was not to be contained when Johnny Dangerous took the stage. He is one hell of a performer, his theatrics make the audience laugh and wince at his dirty expertise rhymes on topics that included fisting and water sports - he stole the show in one swoop! -Q-Boy - attitude

Bio

Graduating from the “world’s most dangerous faggot emcee” to the newly reborn “X-Rated Pop Star,” Johnny Dangerous is nothing short of extraordinary. As the original bad boy of homohop reinvents himself, the Chicago-based entertainer could give two fucks what you think about him or his music. “My lyrics are raw, my music is hot, and my message is honest,” he says; left brow raised. “Whether you love me or hate me, you can’t deny my live performance. I have what others wish they had!” And he’s not lying. British publication, Attitude said of Johnny’s two thousand and four performance amongst nine of his peers, “He is one hell of a performer… he stole the show in one swoop!” Since two thousand and three, Johnny has been ripping mics, tearing new assholes of non-believers and captivating audiences’ worldwide. His comically crass lyrics and unapologetic attitude have made Johnny Dangerous a force to be reckoned with. With straight and gay fans alike, “Dangerous remains one of the most popular entertainers on the scene… [And is] arguably the most outspoken playa in the game…” URB Magazine

Two-time Outmusic Award nominee, Johnny Dangerous released his debut album Dangerous Liaisons in late 2003. Since then, Johnny has headlined several Gay Pride festivals, and gained mentions and features in several media publications such as Out, Unzipped, Instinct, URB, Attitude and more. Johnny’s music has been heard on the Logo-aired Ski Trip movie, as well as seen in the Hip Hop Homos documentary starring God-des and Deadlee. In 2005 and 2006, Johnny spent the majority of his time touring the country and promoting the critically acclaimed documentary, Pick Up The Mic, which he stars in. Mic won several awards at various film festivals, and garnered Johnny mass media attention in local and national papers. Los Angeles’ Frontiers magazine praised the movie and dubbed “Notorious potty-mouthed Johnny Dangerous and his X-Rated rhymes,” as the movie’s “Secret Weapon” in an ensemble cast of eighteen artists. Johnny ain’t no joke!

“I’m not a hip hop artist,” he claims. “I’m an entertainer who happens to rap. I act, I do pod casts, I produce… There’s nothing I can’t do!” This spring, Johnny will be co-headlining the controversial and widely publicized Homorevolution Tour. His video for his upcoming single, “Curious” will debut on Logo, and sets the tone for his latest album, Gayngsta Glam. “Gayngsta Glam picks up where Dangerous Liaisons left off,” he says, “but with wider appeal!” Johnny tackles the issues of his experiences with censorship, gay media, the War in Iraq, suburban swingers and no-good cheating lovers. He also channels vintage Beastie Boys, Salt-N-Pepa and J. J. Fad in his upbeat sophomore release, and considers it somewhat of a departure from his earlier dark and more mean-spirited records.

This time around, Johnny combats with more wit, more camp and more flare than before. He still calls the shots, but with greater charisma, enthusiasm and conviction than remembered. His voice is confident, crisp and commanding. His persona is pulsating, powerful and energetic… But his game is just as glorious, gayngsta and glamorous as ever! After all, how could you question a man who nonchalantly warns “Cuz I’m a Rockstar, cunt! I do what I want!”
