Biography

Dundada witnessed first hand what the famed crack-era did to his Oakland neighborhood when it hit the streets, but it was the distinctive sounds of gangsta rap during the same period which caught his attention and inspired him. Born Kenneth Bosworth, he often heard bullets echo in the night around his house yet by day it fell silent to music, especially the soul melody of Marvin Gaye that his grandmother constantly played. The birth of the Hip-Hop culture at age 13 influenced Dundada, showing him that there was more to life than the streets. At this young age he was exposed to wide array of music, from New Edition to the Beastie Boys and local rapper Too Short. He found writing rhymes over the rhythm and bass of this new genre of music a positive and exhilarating outlet. Following high school Dundada continued to write and attended Art College, working minimum wage jobs to cover the costs. In school he learned the art of the soundboard, how one could express messages words couldn’t describe. Soon after college Dudada appeared on the album National Terrorist Compilation with the late rapper Coug Nut and more achievements would follow. His track “"Get 'Em Up Girls” was featured on an episode of the UPN’s George Lopez show and most recently collaborated with platinum recording producers Jake & The Phatman and Raphael Saadiq who produced the smash hit “Love of my Life” by Erykah Badu.
