Career[edit]

Since the early nineties when Dawood began making beats on his school music computers, his main passion and priority has been creating music, leading to his decision to leave college in order to raise enough funds to buy studio equipment.[2] 2001 brought Dawood his first cut; his track "Flexin" was used on the UK boy band Blue’s album ‘One Love’ – the album selling over 2 million copies worldwide.[2] Dawood has worked closely with Tinchy Stryder and on his 2012 album entitled ‘Full Tank‘, as well as having two cuts on the album, ‘Bad Intentions’ by Dappy.[2]
