Danger MouseAKA Brian Burton

Born: 29-Jul-1977
Birthplace: Rockland County, NY

Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: Black
Occupation: Music Producer

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: The Grey Album

First released his productions on 2003's Ghetto Pop Life, a collaboration with drug-free, socially conscious rapper Jemini. In 2004, Danger Mouse combined acapellas from Jay-Z's Black Album with beats made from The Beatles' White Album and released the result via the web as The Grey Album. He became a cause celebre in the war between corporate media and its consumer base, as the record subjected him to a chilling cease-and-desist letter from EMI; media attention around the case propelled the Grey Album into the public eye, prompting dozens of uninspired copycat fan mashups in a similar vein. Predictably, Danger Mouse immediately parlayed this "indie" success into a major label career with RIAA member Warner Music Group.
