When people speak of a person as being gifted, it is usually one talent that the person obtains they are referring to. This one talent is honed and crafted, nurtured and grown. But when speaking of Dada A.K.A The Golden Child, one cannot confine him to one talent, as he has many. From a young child Dada began with auditioning for an NBC pilot. As an adolescent he attended the infamous F.H. LaGuardia High school of Performing Arts. He went on to successful completion of the world-renowned Howard University with his BA in Radio/TV/Film productions. Dada has truly been busy nurturing his crafts. Beginning with his first love Hip-Hop music, Dada is not just a rapper, but also an emcee; he is an emcee who also produces his music. Dada has been rhyming, and producing tracks for five years. Listening to one of Dada's songs is like watching rhythmic tunes and lyrical expertise make love to sound waves. It is an experience of his mind, a trip through his heart, only to grab on to your soul. An average rapper does not have the musical gift, the ability to write, and the finesse to produce like a teacher amongst students. Dada however, is no average rapper. Writing lyrics to rhymes, poetry, and stories made Dada try his hand at song writing and production for others. He is currently writing and co-producing selected works to newly signed artists like AKIR (Jan/Feb 2005 Source Magazine's Unsigned Hype), Immortal Technique, Cannibal OX (Vast Aire & Vordul Megallah), Backwoodz Studioz: Terror Firma Project, and host of other upcoming artists. Refusing to let go of any of his talents, Dada still performs in various plays, and auditions for TV Shows as well as short films. To his credit he has performed in the hip-hop theatre production 'Rhyme Deferred.' Recently he had a lead role in 'The Passion He Lives,' as John the Baptist, and was also assistant director for the play. These days Dada's main focus is his innovative hip-hop television show, 'The Trashman Show.' This TV show takes two popular hip-hop albums at that time and have them essentially compete against each other, to prove which album is the best. The cast from the Trashman Show as well as you the fans, the listeners, and tastemakers will serve as critics for our culture. The show is in the production phase and is being shopped to various television networks throughout the nation. The man they call 'The Golden Child,' was given this name because a close friend said, 'everything he touches is fruitful, whatever it is, it always becomes golden.' Whether it's beats, rhymes, writing, or acting, The Golden Child has it mastered! Like masterful people do, even with all his skills and talent, he is constantly growing and innovating.
