Born in 1987 to Dominican parents BADD is an up and coming MC straight out the South End neighborhood of Boston. Raised in a turbulent household during his childhood years BADD would look towards Hip Hop as an escape. Legendary acts like Tribe called Quest, Nas, 2pac and Big Pun influenced greatly a kid who was around nothing but negativity in those days. BADD cites the classic Tribe song "Midnight" off the classic album "Midnight Marauders" as the song that gave him hope and inspiration to keep striving for his dreams. BADD began rapping at the age of 12 in the six grade, at first everyone of his friends would laugh at him telling him he was no good, but that didn't stop a young BADD from working on his skillz like a maniac. Around the time BADD got to high school he started recording with his former teacher and good friend Stevey B. During those long recording sessions BADD's skills got better with every song he laid down, this was the period in BADD's life were he really started to get a feel for rapping. After high school was over BADD attended college before he pulled a Kanye and dropped out to pursue his dream that he would merk anybody for. BADD recalls his descision to pursue his dream " Like why do something that in my heart I know is not for me, am not a happy person if you lived in my hood you would know why, the only place I feel good and alive is in the studio recording my dreams(raps) so am a give my life to this cuz I know its my destiny". Determination is something BADD does not lack listen to the man rhyme and you'll feel the pain with every bar, you'll feel the anger with every rhyme and you'll picture the vision of a ghetto child born to fail but raised to succeed.
