Andre Locke BKA \"Buddy McLain\" is a talented hip hop artist who burst upon the Twin Cities music scene, literally with the power of a ticking time bomb. Originally from Chicago, Buddy moved to Minneapolis with hopes of making it BIG on the buzzing Minneapolis music scene. Buddy began to rifle off a string of local hits including \"What\'s The Haps\" and \"Woo Woo\" as well as penning songs with Prince, Mint Condition, and the Sounds of Blackness. Coming from a troubled past, Buddy made some mistakes that cost him his freedom. Fueled with purpose and passion, he aspires to help other young black males break generational curses, avoid poor decisions, lead positive lives, and hoping to prevent them from becoming another casualty of society.
