About DAK-I-D-DANWO

BRUNSWICK, GA

BORN IN JACKSONVILLE, FL WITH ROOTS IN SOUTHEAST GEORGIA JOSEPH HAMILTON JR A.K.A DA K-I-D-D WAS RAISED MILITARY. HAVING A MILITARY BACKGROUND DA K-I-D-D LISTENED TO A WIDE RANGE OF MUSIC. AT THE AGE OF 17 DA K-I-D-D ENTERED A TALENT SHOW IN HIGH SCHOOL IN OKLAHOMA AND WON. THERE HE NOTICED HE HAD A KNACK FOR MUSIC. IN THE YEAR 2000 HE WENT ON TO JOIN THE U.S. NAVY AND WAS STATIONED IN MAYPORT,FL. THERE HE MET KYLE ELLIS A.K.A E-Z MONEY WHO WAS FROM SAVANNAH,GA. E-Z MONEY NOTICED DA K-I-D-D'S AMBITION FOR MUSIC AND THEY JOINED TOGETHER TO MAKE THE GROUP A.N.W.O.(AIN'T NO WAY OUT). THE TWO PUT OUT A SONG CALLED "AINT NO PLAY" WHICH CREATED A BUZZ, GETTING PLAYED IN NUMEROUS CLUBS IN THE SURROUNDING AREA. GREEN TO THE GAME THE TWO FACED MANY CHALLENGES WITH FAULTY PRODUCERS AND SUCH. AFTER THE TWO LEFT THE MILITARY MUSIC WAS PUT ON HOLD AND THE TWO WENT THEIR SEPERATE WAYS. WHILE STAYING IN JACKSONVILLE,FL DA K-I-D-D'S LIFE TOOK A TURN FOR THE WORSE. GOING IN A DOWNWARD SPIRAL IN 2005 DA K-I-D-D FOUND HIMSELF SLEEPING FROM COUCH TO COUCH AND ATTEMPTED TO DO SOMETHING HE NEVER THOUGHT HE WOULD DO. HE TURNED TO SELLING CRACK AS A MEANS TO MAKE A LIVING. AFTER A FEW MONTHS WHILE BECOMING TOO PARANOID DA K-I-D-D'S DRUG DEALING DAYS CAME TO AN END. HE MOVED TO BRUNSWICK,GA IN 2006 RAN INTO TROUBLE AND FOUND HISSELF BACK IN JACKSONVILLE,FL IN 2007.

WANTING BETTER FOR HIMSELF HE WENT INTO TRUCK DRIVING AND THERE HE ALSO BEGAN WRITING AGAIN. WHILE TRAVELING ACROSS THE UNITED STATES HE WOULD TAKE BREAKS TO WRITE SONGS AND SONG IDEAS IN ONE OF HIS MANY NOTEBOOKS. FINDING HIMSELF AND THE STYLE OF MUSIC HE WANTED TO CREATE WAS LIKE NO OTHER. ON ONE OF HIS BREAKS HOME DA K-I-D-D DECIDED TO RELOCATE BACK TO BRUNSWICK,GA IN 2008 AND THERE HE MET DREAMA OF BETTA BEATS PRODUCTIONS AND RECORDED "PULL YA CHEVY'S OUT" HIS FIRST SONG AS A SOLO ARTIST. IT WAS A SONG FOR THE STREETS AND HE FELT HE NEEDED TO MAKE A SONG THAT WOULD CAPTURE A WIDE AUDIENCE, AND ONE THAT WAS ALSO RADIO READY. HE THEN WROTE "I NEED U" AND DECIDED THAT WAS THE SONG HE WANTED TO PROMOTE AS A SINGLE. ALL HE NEEDED WAS SOMEONE WITH GOOD VOCALS. HE THEN MET DANNY CLAY WHO WAS A WELL ESTABLISHED R&B ARTIST WHO WAS INTRODUCED TO STEVE HARVEY BY NEPHEW TOMMY. DA K-I-D-D AND DANNY CLAY CONNECTED ON THE TRACK WITH DANNY CLAY BLOWING AWAY THE TRACK WITH HIS VOCALS. IN THE LATE 2008 DA K-I-D-D MET JASMINE THE ASSISTANT OF JACKSONVILLE,FL A PROMOTER AND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU COULD NAME. SHE RECOGNIZED THE POTENTIAL DA K-I-D-D HAD AND TOOK OVER FROM THERE.

DA K-I-D-D BRINGS HIP HOP TO LIFE WITH HIS SOUTHERN FLAVOR AND JAW DROPPING LYRICS. DA K-I-D-D REPRESENTS THE SOUTHEAST AND HIP HOP AS A WHOLE. READY TO SHOW THE WORLD WHAT HE'S CAPABLE OF DA K-I-D-D IS DROPPING HIS FIRST MIXTAPE CALLED "SOUTHEAST BEASTIN" VOL1, WHICH IS BEING HOSTED BY SLIP-N-SLIDE DJ, DJ NODOZE. GET READY 4 DA K-I-D-D!!!
