Biography

Ghetto Concept is a Canadian hip-hop duo from Toronto, Ontario, comprised of Kwajo Cinqo and Dolo. Infinite, who is currently a solo artist, is a former member of Ghetto Concept.

Kwajo Cinqo (Kwajo Boateng) and Dolo (Lowell Frazier) formed Ghetto Concept in 1989, hailing from the Rexdale and Lawrence Heights neighbourhoods of Toronto.[1] Their first single “Certified” was released in 1993, by independent label Groove-a-Lot Records. In 1995, they released “E-Z On Tha Motion”, which introduced their newest member, Infinite (Desmond Francis). The group won Juno Awards in 1995 and 1996 for “Certified” and “E-Z On Tha Motion”, respectively.

In 1995, Infinite’s brother was murdered, and he left Ghetto Concept shortly after.[2] Before he left, Ghetto Concept recorded a tribute to his brother entitled “Much Love”, and it was released as a single and video in 1996. Infinite re-emerged as a solo artist in 1997, with the Juno-nominated track “Gotta Get Mine”, featuring Divine Brown. Between 1997 and 1999, he released five singles, each of which were accompanied by a music video. In 1998, he released an EP, entitled 360 Degrees, which featured his previous singles. In 1999, he won a MuchMusic Video Award for “Take a Look”. That year, he contributed two songs to the Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike game soundtrack. He also made an appearance in the film In Too Deep.

Ghetto Concept created 7Bills Entertainment in 1996. The remaining duo released their self-titled debut album Ghetto Concept in 1998, and released the singles “Krazy World” and “Precious Metals”; Sticky Fingaz was featured on the remix “Heavy Metals”.

    I'm suprised by the lack of love for Ghetto Concept... Still Too Much is still T.'s finest hip-hop anthem
