From the battle grounds to his latest moniker Parker, Jonathan Park (a.k.a.Dumbfoundead) has built a legendary name for himself in the LA hip-hop scene in less than a decade. When he was merely three years old, Park’s mother smuggled both him and his sister past the Mexican border and nestled the family deep into Koreatown. While he grew up listening to all genres of music, Parker found his initial hip-hop clique that started at a MacArthur Park community center and advanced to Project Blowed, an open-mic workshop in south central LA.
Parker developed his skills through an exponential rise to national acclaim with everything from rap battle videos with views in the millions to spotlights on shows like Late Night with Carson Daly. He also holds a curator role, alongside Far East Movement and Tokimonsta, in one of K-town’s most happening parties: Spam N Eggs. In addition, Dumbfoundead is an up and coming actor with supporting roles in Joseph Kahn’s Detention (2011) and Season 3 of Power (2016).
