"Straight to the ground! That's where you going!"
—Dan G

Dan G is a circuit fighter and a playable character in Def Jam Vendetta and Def Jam Fight for NY.


Dan G. was born in Jamaica, but raised in the USA. His family moved to New Jersey when he was less than a year old. He grew up learning capoeira and breakdancing around the Tri State area with a b-boy crew calling themselves The Str8 Breakers. The breakdancing bubble had burst by the end of the eighties, and Dan G. tried to make a name for himself as an emcee. He started street fighting as a means to pay for his demo, but found he had a knack for it. Now Dan's a star in the underground, busting heads with a style that keeps the crowds calling his name. He still dreams of being a famous rapper, but for now he finds happiness in the ring.
