“… since the first day of life in the Baden capital”. This is how one of the many lyrics by the native of Karlsruhe with Iranian roots begins. Bdad came into contact with hip hop at the age of eight. The element of MC'ing / rap has been his companion ever since. His first studio recordings took place in 2008. Since then he has been producing texts, songs and videos.
After several published co-productions, solo songs and music videos, his first own release called “bars by bdad” was released on January 10th, 2020. The entire EP was produced by his longtime friends Kolic Beatz and Mantineo, the whole project was mixed and mastered by Meisterbeats Kmh. He published the digitally available short player himself on his label “Das Haus”. The content and themes of his verses are broad. For the most part, it's about his life in Rintheim / Karlsruhe, his attitude towards the current German rap scene and many of his hobbies - including football, eating out and his love for women. The latter is also the main reason for soft and sung tones, which in bdad’s past were seldom exposed to daylight. He keeps the freedom to devote himself to current events and styles open. Through his years of activity in the Combo Hip Hop Kulturzentrum Karlsruhe, where he exchanges ideas with many visual artists, DJs and dancers, he defines himself not only as a rapper, but as part of a culture.
Since 2014 he has been one of the most sought-after Battle MCs in the German-speaking scene. He became known through success at national events. For bdad, however, battling is only a fragment of its history. He also cultivates an individual approach to rap and beats.
As part of the opening ceremony of the 300th birthday of Karlsruhe, he presented the song “Karlsruhe” produced by Mantineo in the final part of the performance in front of 40,000 visitors. In the same and in the following year he was booked as a Battle MC at the largest German hip-hop festival "Splash". On January 17th, 2020 he will compete in Leipzig at the biggest battle rap event in Germany, “Toptier Takeover”, as the main item on the program against MC Maik in the Acapella-Battle and try to build on old successes. Further projects and collaborations are in the pipeline. Means: Enough raw material for the next few years!
