"Danger (Been So Long)" is the second single released by rapper Mystikal from his fourth album, Let's Get Ready, featuring singer Nivea. It was released on December 2, 2000 and was produced by The Neptunes. The single was a success, peaking at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, #3 on the Hot Rap Singles and #8 on the Rhythmic Top 40. "Danger (Been So Long)" was the second single from the album to reach the top 20 on the charts, "Shake Ya Ass" being the first.

"Danger" was used as part of a running gag on The Daily Show during John Oliver's tenure as interim host in 2013, and again on Oliver's own show Last Week Tonight in 2016, in reference to Anthony Weiner's scandalous mayoral campaign and his online pseudonym, "Carlos Danger".
