Bossolo spent most of his career as an Independent Solo Artist.

Dante was the producer and Smooth MC was the rapper, decided to do a record about the Rodney King beating in Los Angeles , they both collabarated on a video called “Insane” that landed on the desk on Daryl Hughes office of Capitol Records.
