Careeredit

2002–09: Beginningsedit

Johnson started composing rap lyrics at the age of 12, after his older brother introduced him into the world of hip-hop1 In high school, he and his brother put together a rap group that consisted of four young men who went by the name of Black Out Boiz aka BOB, where his original stage name ATL came into play & also where his eccentric use of the Mohawk hairstyle became his signature trend at the time Though the group had been receiving positive notoriety, ATL would eventually leave The BOB Black Out Boiz & get started in his pursuit of solo projects2 He continued recording in his basement and making mixtapes to network himself, & this hard work led Johnson to come across his cousin, Torrey YT Hood, who happened to be a sponsor of a local rap group who called themselves Travis Porter3

Johnson soon recognized that he had to create a new identity other than Shadowfade to restart his music career, & be acknowledged for his own musical work4 He Googled names of comic book heroes, and came across the name Roscoe Dash Johnson says, "I needed something more marketable I felt Shadowfade would have given my secret identity away Plus it put me in that box of an Atlanta rapper so I needed something that would catch the ears and eyes of whoever was listening or reading the name Roscoe Dash and make them want to do research on Roscoe Dash"5 Roscoe Dash released a song "All the Way Turnt Up" featuring Travis Porter and they released it on their mixtape I'm a Differenter 2 Dash was only credited as a featured artist

According to Travis Porter, this was just a mistake6 He then met local entrepreneur LA da Boomman in 2009, who then signed him to his production company, Making Moves Inc MMI78 Dash then later agreed deals with both Music Line Group, after Boomman introduced Dash to the A&R representative Anthony Tate, and the Interscope Records distributed Zone 4 after Tate and Dash spoke with music producer Polow da Don, the label's founder78

Controversyedit

Travis Porteredit

After letting them listen to a song he had recorded at the time called "All the Way Turnt Up",16 and the group automatically wanted to be a part of it Since Travis Porter was already an established local group, he handed the song over to them and was featured on the track It was featured on Travis Porter’s next mixtape, I’m a Differenter 217 The hit became very popular, but most people labeled the song as being Travis Porter's The song was accredited as Travis Porter featuring YT and ShadowFade He felt as if he wasn’t getting enough credit for the song that he had created This caused conflicts between Dash & Travis Porter
