Hip Hop Artist:
The Official Site Of
Born and raised in the 801 (Salt Lake City, Utah), Griffin Bonacci a.k.a. Dangerous Devil has been involved with Hip Hop since the age of 6 years old, when he began not only listening to the art itself emerging on Urban radio, he also was into "breaking", the art of break dancing, where he and other kids in grade school P.E. class would have break dancing contests.
About the age of 11 years old, cds became affordable enough, he got his first cd player and 3 of Public Enemies' albums from a local pawn shop. From there, he was hooked! He began listening to hundreds of different Hip Hop records, including: E.P.M.D., Gangstarr, Gandmaster Melle Mel and the Furious Five, LL Cool J, Heavy D and the Boys, Erik B and Rakim and World Class Wreckin' Cru.
But the breakthrough moment came when Dangerous Devil's best friend won tickets from a local radio station to see Arrested Development. He was hooked and as soon as the pair got home from the concert that Friday, they began to write lyrics and come up with a name for the duo (P.risoner's O.f R.ap).
After a number of mixtape releases over the years with his friend, multiple group name changes and a near record deal (with a major label), Griffin decided to go solo and change his name to Dangerous Devil in 1996. With 12 project releases under this moniker to his credit and more than 70,000 units sold independently and having appeared on projects that have also featured Platinum and Gold selling artists Baby Bash, Jay Tee of N2Deep, Dante Thomas (and dozens of other Hip Hop artists), Dangerous Devil is back with his biggest and most ambitious project yet (Blak Krow). The album features numerous hit singles and production by Platinum and Gold Producer Freek van Workum (T.I., Tech N9ne, Kid Ink, Sage The Gemini, 2 Chainz, B.O.B. to name a few ), as well as production from Dangerous Devil himself!
Recently, Dangerous Devil also branched out into acting in major films. Appearing in 4 of the 5 films for the Mythica adventure series as well as Hollywood films like; Killjoy: Psycho Circus, Evil Bong High Five (Executive Producer), Small Town Crime (John Hawkes, Octavia Spencer, Anthony Edwards, Clifton Collins Jr., Robert Forster and more), Don Verdean, I Wish You Were Dead and numerous other independent film and media projects. Additionally, Dangerous Devil will have involvement within the upcoming Puppetmaster film sequel to the highly successful and long running horror film franchise.
