From the battle grounds to his latest moniker Parker, Jonathan Park (a.k.a.Dumbfoundead) in less than a decade has built a legendary history in the LA hip-hop scene. At the mere age of three, Park’s mother smuggled both him and his sister past the Mexican border and nestled the family deeply into his Koreatown stomping ground. While he grew up listening to all genres of music, the hip-hop scene in the nineties was no doubt bustling – and through that Parker found his initial hip-hop cli initial hip-hop clique that clicked and clacked from a Macarthur Park community center to Project Blowed, an open-mic workshop in south central LA.
Parker developed his skills with an exponential rise to local and even national acclaim with everything from rap battle videos with views in the millions, to spotlights on shows like Late Night with Carson Daly, most recently his curator role in one of K-town’s most happening parties: Spamneggs alongside Far East Movement and Tokimonsta. Dumbfoundead is also an up and coming actor with supporting roles in Joseph Kahn’s Detention (2011) and Season 3 of Power (2016).
