Early life and career
Badwa was born in Jamaica, later moving to Toronto at a very early age. He began his music career with the Get Loose Crew With Kory Neely as the frontman, recorded the first rap album in Canadian history in 1988, though the press was considered it to be a "mini-LP" because it only featured four tracks with accompanying instrumentals. The single "Wannabe" reached number 5 on urban chart CHEER in May 1988 In 1990, Badwa signed with Anthony Bond’s production company "Simply Majestic" who by now had inked a P&D deal with EMI. The compilation album “We United to Do Dis” produced the chart topping hit “Dance To The Music”. The success of this album had Carl touring across Canada opening for big name acts such as Ice-T, MC Hammer, and Run DMC. In 1991, Badwa won a Juno Award for Best R&B Soul Recording In the same year, he collaborated on the one-off single "Can't Repress the Cause" a plea for greater inclusion of hip hop music in the Canadian music scene, with Dance Appeal.
Going independent: 1994
After parting ways with Simply Majestic, Carl went back to the studio and released his solo album “Mellow Madness” which earned him a Juno nominationin the "Best Rap Recording" Category for “Gotta Get Over” in 1994.
After taking a long deserved break Carl came back into the rap game under the name Don Carlito He collaborated with Simply Majestic to produce his EP What’s The D.E.A.L in 2003. This ground breaking EP had 3 songs in regular rotation across Canada. “Asi Como Mi - featuring Diva Latina, “Just Like Me” - featuring Canadian rapper Maestro Fresh Wes and Play On - featuring Canadian R&B singer Carlos Morgan. Reflecting on past success Carl decided to once again collaborate with his old friend and one-time label mate Frank Morell for his most recent single releases "Fire" in 2013 and "Reloaded" in 2016.
