Bosko

Biography

Bosko was born in Accra, Ghana of West Africa and raised in Portland, Oregon. As a boy performing in the school band, he probably never dreamed it was his destiny to work with some of the biggest and brightest stars of Hip Hop, R&B, and Rock music. Bosko began his musical career as a DJ but quickly crossed over into the realm of producer, producing music for local rappers. Frustrated with the lack of major label attention, he launched his own independent label, Jus’ Family Records, with his best friend Terrence Scott (aka Cool Nutz). An ambitious young man, he later moved to Los Angeles to pursue greater opportunities and received his first major break when he was asked to produce the remix for E-40’s hit “Sprinkle Me”. Other projects soon followed, including tracks for Too Short, Lil Kim and the late songstress Aaliyah.

As word spread of his phenomenal production skills and vocal ability, Bosko’s popularity was catapulted, ushering in guest appearances on numerous hit records. He’s currently working with Big Boi, E-40, Young Dro (Grand Hustle), and Dj Felli Fel. His production, writing and singing on E-40’s recently released album, My Ghetto Report Card, earned top honors when the song, “Happy To Be Here”, was awarded the “Hip Hop Quotable” by The Source Magazine.

Not one to neglect his own abilities, in 2006 Bosko released the self-produced album That Fire on his own label, Bombay Entertainment. The album features guest appearances by several of Hip Hop and R&B’s finest (Lil Jon, E-40 and more) as well as four of Bosko’s solo vocal tracks. His solo vocal album “The Good Life Movement” has just been released and is a creative blend of Hip-Hop & Soul that will influence generations to come.

Bosko is currently on tour showcasing his signature talkbox sound with Big Boi, (one half of OutKast, the most popular rap group of all time). Bosko is featured prominently on Big Boi’s first single and video “Shutterbugg” (Def Jam Records). Recent National TV appearances included The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon, with more to come as Big Boi’s critically acclaimed album Sir Lucious Left Foot heads toward a predicted Grammy nomination.
