"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 intergrity," says East Las Vegas Native Dula-Mite The King. , Born Abdullah Al-Amin he was raised on the Eastside of Las Vegas on the infamous 28th Street aka Da 8-Side. 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 was 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 The King began releasing music independently in 2006 with his debut single "Booty-Doo" in which he sold over 7,000 hard copies in the streets.

Displaying a unique style & one of a kind flow the future looks bright for this Westcoast lyricist. Instead of following trends, he plans on setting them. "I'm trying to paint a picture," he leaves off. "I want to give them more than songs. I want to give them a lifestyle. I want to give those dreamers out there the ability to feel like they can make it out of where ever they're from and with hardwork & most importantly the blessings of God I can show them and teach them how to give back along the way." Dula-Mite is currently prepping for two new releases entitled: The Mid-Life Crisis EP & underRATED LP, which are both slated to be released in 2018. Stay Tuned for GREATNESS.
