"Localese: Profile"

Standing at 6-feet-6 inches, San Diego's DNA-1 has both bass for your face and life-affirming, energy-infused rhymes. His 2003 debut album, "It Pays 2B Humble" (Whiskey Records) pays homage to early hip-hop pioneers like Kool Herc and – of course – Run-DMC. DNA-1, aka Senyo Amoaku, spent time in hip-hop crew Natural Facts before going solo. Not since the Icons burst on the local hip-hop scene a few years ago has a San Diego product made so many waves. DNA-1 – along with Scales from Nappy Roots and Ahmad from 4th Avenue Jones – dish a lot of love for San Diego. Time to return the favor. - San Diego Union Tribune
