Dee Dee Ramone's first solo album under his 'hip hop' name Dee Dee King unavailable on LP since its first pressing in 1989. Dee Dee dived headlong into his new sound at the tail end of the '80s, and although he later allowed that "when I got into rap, I didn't win any popularity contests," there was a time when he was quick to mention that Billboard really dug the record, with the magazine even going so far out on a limb as to suggest that his raps put the Beastie Boys to shame. When he addressed the topic of his album in his autobiography, Lobotomy, he reflected on Standing in the Spotlight by explaining that he "wasn't trying to shove it down anybody's throats" nor was his decision to leave the band connected to a desire for a solo career. "I just wanted to grow," said Dee Dee. If you've never heard Dee Dee's rap album, it's definitely something that must be experienced first-hand to truly appreciate it.
