Dreadchild of the hip hop group Knotz is finally stepping out with his brand new solo album “The Ladder”. He has performed at well over 300 venues in the past five years along with the group comprised of blood brothers Aswad Mikal and the late Mega-Ton and has supported several major acts including Chamillionaire Common The Roots Busta Rhymes Talib Kweli Ja Rule Papoose MF Doom Rahzel Immortal Technique J-Hood and Fruit Kwan (Grave Diggaz). Dreadchild is anxiously looking forward to performing his solo works to a wide audience and judging from the vibes emanating from the release of his new single I Dont Make Believe featuring Nature his solo act promises to be a must see event. Adding to his hip hop resume Dreadchild is also a producer graphic designer and film editor. Dreadchild not unlike his group is on a personal mission to revive the ailing hip-hop scene. Performing with Knotz he has mesmerized audiences with his dynamic energy-packed performances blending conscious lyricism and crowd participation to set their live show apart from the current hip-hop fray. Colleges universities and commercial venues agree that this group is something special to see live. In 2007 The Independent Artist Registry named Knotz IndiE Award winner for Independent Artist of the Year. Several magazines and industry source books such as The Music Phone Book Mic Magazine and AnR Magazine in Australia featured Knotz in 2007. In 2008 the group showcased at the Millennium Music Conference 12 (MMC12) in Harrisburg PA in February. The Knotz were ed as a FINALIST for Best Duo/Group for the 2008 Central PA Hip-Hop Awards. Members of the Independent Artist Company (IAC) also nominated their song The Bounce for the prestigious IAIA 2008 Golden Kayak Award for Best Hip Hop/Rap Song.
