Kado The Dreadlocked Gentleman

Carl Morris, Kado The Dreadlocked Gentleman, grew up in Oakland California beat making, writing and beat boxing. At school he was surrounded by artists we now know as E-40, Suga T, Too Short and Dru Down. Although passionate about music and accustomed to the lifestyle of an artist at a young age, Kado’s passion was interrupted in 8th grade when his idol Tupac was murdered. Discouraged, he changed directions embracing life as an athlete with dreams of joining the military. However, plans changed when he discovered and began to analyze Bob Marley. Re-inspired, he emerged into the music scene performing and entertaining friends with music as a past time. Kado’s love for music was put into perspective on January 16th, 2011 when he was shot three times in an attempted car-jacking by a six shot thirty-eight revolver. While driving himself to the hospital on pure adrenaline he had an epiphany: Music was his life and it was almost taken from him forever. Since then, Kado has cherished and breathed music every day. He is known to spend up to 8 hours analyzing his reaction to beats earning him the nickname West Coast Wheezy and has dedicated his life to producing positive tracks in a negative world. He is known for inspiring change earning the nickname Hip Hop Obama and has also been called Young Marley due to the amplifying power of his lungs.

Kado has performed at venues in Reno, Nevada including The Knitting Factory, The Underground and the West Street Market and has begun making a name for himself outside Nevada performing at venues like The Airliner in Los Angeles. He has collaborated with Chillnut and Cellmillion and is a self-proclaimed old soul inspired by classics like Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and Ray Charles. Kado is currently working on a mixtape scheduled to drop in November 2011 as well as a debut album called Microphone Dream and This is How We Do. He plans to change the world with his God given gift of music and spread the messages he’s been taught in life.
