Danny!, also known as D. Swain, is an American record producer/hip hop artist. In a five-year period Danny! has self-released twelve albums, which include five full-length albums, an EP, three instrumental albums and even a greatest hits compilation.

Though signed to Definitive Jux in early 2007, the self-proclaimed "prolific producer/MC" never released an album with the label. Instead, selected tracks from Danny!'s discography—all previously released on his vanity Badenov Records/1911 Music imprint—have been made available as a free download on Def Jux's revamped website, which boasts an extensive digital download section. A single titled "Just Friends" came out in March 2009 and is Danny!'s first, and to date only, official Def Jux release.[1]

The young artist would later sign to Interscope Records to little fanfare in the wake of Where Is Danny?'s success in 2010. Just as quietly, Danny! left Interscope the following year and subsequently signed to the re-launched Okayplayer Records in 2012. A release date for Payback, which had been delayed that entire year, was scheduled for September 25.
