Dadoo is competing in his second Lavaman Triathlon in 2015 to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Beginnings with KDD
He started in 1994 with the group KDD and quickly became its leader. The group was made of 5 members (Dadoo otherwise known as Dadppda, Diesel, H20, Lindsay and Robert) who signed a contract with Columbia. Their first album "Opte pour le K" came out in 1996, next came the album "Résurrection" in 1998 and "Une Couleur de plus au Drapeau" in 2000, both considered as original classics of French rap. Later the group separated after selling more than 200,000 albums. A new path was ahead for him.
Dadoo quickly changed into having a solo career. He initiated many musical projects and collaborations with: Akhenaton, Kool Shen, Rohff, Oxmo Puccino, Vitaa, Diam's, Joeystarr, even Jean-Michel Jarre for the remix of Oxygène. Dadoo, whose writing is the base of his solo career, wrote the script of Gomez et Tavarès, the story of two cops who are total opposites and must face the middle class of Marseilles. The movie, produced by Gilles Paquet-Brenner in 2003, and will feature Titoff, Stomy Bugsy and Noémie Lenoir. Then, he co-directed the BO of the Taxi 3 for Luc Besson who saw rising stars like Diam, Vitaa, Corneille, Korr et Scalp… he wrote in the same year for Alain Chabat the music for the movie RRRrrrr!!!, a whacky movie filmed in 2003, with les Robins des Bois. In 2003, produced by Sony Columbia his first solo album France History X which is regarded as a definitive, high-value example of French rap. The album showed a timeless analysis of the French wealthy's differences and contradictions. The title Sales Gosses met an immediate success with a music video with Jamel Debbouze, Éric et Ramzy, Dieudonné and Joeystarr. The titles Où vous-êtes, France History X and Fille facile also saw large successes. It was in 2014 when Dadoo launched the formation of Dadoo and the Classics who hoped to blend hip hop strictly MC + KEYS + DRUMS.
Dadoo, who gained more interest in composition, completed the first album of Joeystarr Gare au[Jaguarr in 2006. The album was a clear success and was named in the victoires de la musique 2007 in the "Urban Music" category. As producer of the tour that followed the release of the album, Dadoo joined with Joeystarr on stage with the neo-metal group Enhancer. In 2009 his career took a turn as he became part of the new rock group "D and the Zepp". Dadoo became the singer/bassist and was accompanied by Alain "Dricks" Lasseube. At the same time, he wrote TV advertisements. Dadoo also tried successfully to produce with the producer Xavier Marchand's official teasers of Festival Garorock.
