Funk Daddy

Biography

Born and raised in Seattle, Funk Daddy has produced, engineered, and written songs for groups all over the country since his high school days, and has blessed gold and platinum artists with his incredible turntable skills.

He became well known for his battle technique, taking first place in DJ battles in and out of the country. With the success of his deejaying and rhyming, Funk Daddy wanted to make his mark on his first love, producing. Friend J.D. Hill met Bay Area legend E-40 at the Gavin Convention in San Francisco and within a couple of weeks, E-40 brought Funk Daddy in to produce three tracks on his first RIAA Certified Platinum Album In A Major Way.The experience turned out to be the launching pad for Funk Daddy to put out his own debut solo album, Funk U Right On Up. He went on to record three additional solo albums. His music was featured in the former ABC weekly series Dangerous Minds, featured in the Hip Hop documentary Rhyme and Reason, as well as in the movie and on the soundtrack for 3 Strikes, and later in the hot nationally released documentary Street Racing.

Funk Daddy's production has received critical acclaim, and his work includes tracks with Daz, D12, Livio, Spice 1, Dru Down, Noreaga, E-40, B-Legit, Ras Kass, Money B, N2Deep, Cool Nutz, Mac Dre, and many others. His reputation for being the most consistent and hottest deejay in the area earned him the 1999 "Best Club and Mix Tape DJ Award" at The Northwest Music Awards. In 2002.

2003, and 2004 he rocked the Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee's Phat Farm fashion show, the Microsoft X-Box Holiday Party at Seahawk Stadium, and performed in Las Vegas with Erick Sermon and Too $hort. He also secured a spot on the weekly Mixshow at 104.5 KMIH FM in Seattle, and branched out through the promotional opportunities at the station. While he still maintains a busy schedule spinning at the hottest clubs and events in the Northwest and beyond, he has been in the studio non-stop.
