Born and raised in North Oakland, California, in what is more commonly referred to as ‘Ice City’, it was easy for HD to write realistic portrayals of the street life. In his younger years, his uncle Mr. Mixx, the producer and DJ from Luke’s 2LiveCrew, took him to record his first songs. It was this early musical upbringing that allowed HD to sharpen and perfect his craft much earlier than his peers.
In 2008 HD started his own label, Bearfaced Ent., where he was free to release his own music, as well as support and help release the music of his fellow label mates, providing a platform for ‘Ice City’ rappers that represented the same struggle he’d been through. His debut album ‘Extortion Muzik, Vol. 1’, which would be one of many projects to be released by HD, was an instant street classic.
With a reputation for dropping consistent hit albums, with over 24 released projects, HD comes again with another one for the books with his new album titled ‘The O.N.E. (Originality Nothin’ Else)’. This album is comprised of excellent production matched with the gritty, yet soulful lyrics. His new project features guest appearances by Young Scooter of Black Migo Gang, as well long-time Bearfaced Ent. artists G-Dirty and Sippa. Production for this album has contributions from Scorp Dezel, Mistah Slap, and Young A, just to name a few. HD has also expanded his Bearfaced Ent. brand further by introducing high quality merchandise to his fans. A partnership with Mint Worldwide Clothing, a popular high-end clothing company, has allowed HD and Bearfaced Ent., to achieve new heights in the urban fashion industry.
Through hard work and dedication, HD pushes to promote his musical agenda through constant releases of quality music. Bearfaced Ent., although it originated from North Oakland, HD has goals of his music reaching all around the world.
