You can't call your self a CERTIFIED KING of anything if you don't display leadership qualities that people can admire and that basically comes from having tremendous work ethic and showing leadership qualities with integrity," says East Las Vegas Native Dula-Mite, Born Abdullah Al-Amin he was raised on the East side of Las Vegas in the infamous 28th Street neighborhood. Growing up in a city known for their casinos and parties, until recently the world was blind to the real realities of growing up in "Sin City". "For tourist it was all glitz and glam, for locals they lived the harsh reality of the temptations that the downtown and strip area can do to a household. Pimps, Prostitutes, Drugs, Gangs and Alcohol abuse are true realities to Las Vegas natives. "Behind the strip is where the real Las Vegas lied for us and there was nothing to do but get into some mischief or avoid it by doing something positive with your life." Dula-Mite’s music represents & speaks from the “Good kids in a mad city” perspective.
