Biography

San Diego’s hottest rap twosome, Dago Braves, bring rhymes straight from the Rez to the world on their second album KUMEYAAY COOL GUYZ. Their songs hit every topic of the American life from every aspect. Being both African American and Native American, the group expresses the struggles and advantages of being born between races. The music of Dago Braves reflects their heritage by fusing the original native rhythms of the Kumeyaay Band of Sycuan Indians with the distinct hip-hop beats of the San Diego rap scene.

Cousins Terence “Poodeezy” Brown and Mike “Odoe” Allen make up Dago Braves. This tight knit and enterprising duo are creating their music family and record label with Shulaced Entertainment. Shulaced Entertainment is developing several artists from within and around the Sycuan Reservation and the San Diego area bringing life to their unique perspectives.

Dago Braves have collaborated with talent from around San Diego while putting together their award-winning debut album NATIVE AMERICAN HUSTLE released in 2007. Local producers working with Dago Braves to make NATIVE AMERICAN HUSTLE included The Batkave, Grimmie Recs, Steve Vicious and Dave Moss. Podeezy and Odoe want to continue to create music to represent San Diego and the Syucan proudly, which is why they again harnessed the top talent in San Diego for their newest release KUMEYAAY COOL GUYZ.

KUMEYAAY COOL GUYZ streets October 21, 2008. The songs on KUMEYAAY COOL GUYZ hit on every part of cousins Terence “Poodeezy” Brown and Mike “Odoe” Allen lives. Tracks like CASINO and I’M A BRAVE give perspective about the pride of the Tribe’s success and the celebrity of Casino life amidst the San Diego community. “Everyone has their hustle,” says Terence “Poodeezy” Brown, one half of Dago Braves, “the casino is our hustle. It’s what’s bringing the tribal family back together. Until we had the casino the tribal family was spread in every direction just trying to get by. Now we’re together and we’re doing alright.” Then, songs like TOO SOON get more personal, talking about the trials and tribulations of new relationships and the need to take a step back.
