In the words of great friend and publicist from Atlantic Records Ramses Dios, “My guy BDK is a very sellable artist, he has the look, the sound and the hype that can carry him very far in this industry.”  “BDK, yeah that dude sounds just like G-Eazy, it’s crazy”, said another fan.

BDK is in the process of booking his first live shows in 2020.  Open to any and all criticism about his work, BDK seems to be getting better with each single he does release, speaking on relevant topics that cover more routed subjects than like the light and darkness of the soul, angels and demons, racial issues, political views and most things that aren’t seen as materialistic.
