Frank n Dank are an American hip hop duo from Detroit, Michigan. It consists of rappers Frank Nitt (previously known as Frank Nitty) and Dankery Harv, and are best known for their collaborations with the late J Dilla. Known for their party-driven, tongue-in-cheek raps, the duo first came to public attention as guests on J Dilla's album, Welcome 2 Detroit, in 2001. Prior to this, they had been performing in their hometown since the mid-1990s and had released the singles "Everybody Get Up!" and "Me and My Man", both produced by J Dilla.

The group signed a recording deal with MCA Records, but their 2003 J Dilla-produced album, 48 Hours, was at first rejected by the label, reworked with new production, resubmitted by the group and finally shelved by MCA altogether. Bootlegs of the reworked version eventually surfaced. Frank n Dank released their follow-up album, Xtended Play in 2004, which was rereleased as Xtended Play 3.13 in 2006. Their second studio album, The EP, was released in 2007.
