Cudlino has been writing poetry and song lyrics for 15 years. He began recording in 2008 when he helped create the group G.D.S. (Game Dream Struggle), which included him and his friend King Dub. They recorded their first group mixtape “Where West Meets South” and released it in 2009, which was received quite well around their area.
