Daddy-O

Glenn Bolton, better known in the golden years of hip hop as Daddy-O, earned bi-coastal respect in the late 1980s and early 1990s, after creating one of the most significant pieces of production in rap: "Top Billin'" by Audio Two, in 1988. That same year, with some co-producers' help, he produced the majority of Cookie Crew's album, a trio of female rappers, and also made an appearance on Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate compilation. In 1993, he produced two tracks for new school seeds Freestyle Fellowship, one being the song "Boundaries" from the album Innercity Griots that possessed a more downtempo and universal funk feel to it, which made it shine and complimented the MC's rhyming very well. His solo project You can be a daddy, but never Daddy-O may have failed the way it did due to the fact that he was much more respected as a beat producer than as an MC.
