M.C. Brains (born James DeShannon Davis) is an American rapper from Cleveland, Ohio. He is perhaps best known for his hit single, "Oochie Coochie".Discovered by Michael Bivins of New Edition, Brains was signed to Motown Records, who issued his debut album Lovers Lane in 1992. The album's lead single, "Oochie Coochie", became a top-40 hit, peaking at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earning a gold certification four months after its release. Despite the success of "Oochie Coochie", Lovers Lane failed to find much success and Brains was dropped from Motown shortly after the album's release. In 1996, M.C. Brains (now using the name M.C. Brainz) released a second album entitled Brainwashed for Ichiban Records.
