Singer: Kadeve aka Dolla Sign Kay
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Genre: Hip Hop
Kadeve aka Dolla Sign Kay was born and raised in rough streets of Oakland California. In order to escape the ghetto cycle of his neighborhood, Kadeve pursued a career in baseball with boyhood friend Tony Gwynn Jr. Nephew of Bip Roberts “Mr. Consistency”, Kadeve learned the game of baseball from Oakland A’s pitcher Dave Stewart’s father Paul Best.
It wasn’t until Kadeve moved to Southern California that he realized his love for rap. He became engrossed in learning every aspect of the art and thus began his rap career. His first recording session was with G-1 & Dj Quik. Kadeve subsequently became the first Rapper to perform at the Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Blvd, as well as the Escondido Performing Arts Center.
Kadeve has since gone on to work/record with some of the greatest names in music such as Dj Loczi, Kid Jay,T-Lopez (Cash Money), Serious Jones, Maad MaxXx (Black Wall Street), and Jessica Sutta (Pussy Cat Dolls). Kadeve has performed and opened for artists such as Slick Rick, The Gza (Liquid Swords Tour), Colby O’donis, Adam Lambert, The Alkaholiks, The Federation, Ruff Ryderz, Dj Quik and Naughty By Nature.
Kadeve has accomplished many feats as an independent artist such as doing interviews for Revolt TV and Comcast Sports as well as landing his song ‘Never Give Up’ on Love and Hip Hop New York season 3’s final episode as well as landing 3 different songs on two different Sci-Fi movies. His song ‘In A Minute’ was featured in Arachnaquake along with his song ‘Ring Around Rosey’ and his song ‘We In’ was placed on ‘Swamp Shark’. With Kadeve’s ability to write songs that remain relevant to the day to day emotions and situations of everyday people we believe he will be a force to be reckoned with for many years to come.
