M.C. Brains (born James Davis, although some sources have it as James De Shannon on May 24, 1974 from Cleveland, Ohio) was a male hip-hop rapper from the early 90's.
He was signed to Motown Records by New Edition member Michael Bivins. His name stands for "bringing raps and instrumentals non stop."
The second single, "Everybody's Talking About M.C. Brains" didn't chart on the Hot 100 or R&B charts, but managed to peak at #23 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles chart.
In 1996, M.C. Brains released his sophomore album, "Brainwashed" on Ichiban Records. The album flopped and after that, it seemed as if M.C. Brains had faded into obscurity.
These days, he now goes under the name "Brainz Davis" and appears to still be active in the music business, but has not released any new material lately.
