Born in the first quarter of 1990 Dupree Jefferson "Dice Balboa" was raised in the Northern Parts of Sacramento California. He came up watching his Father play guitar and sing with his friends. Dice has always had an extensive ear for music coming up listening to golden oldies, R&b and of course Hip-hop
Some influences Balboa cites Dj Quik, The Jacka, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Tupac, Kayne West to say the least. July 4th, 2003 was the day he was inspired to start writing music of his own his own and has never lost the love for it since.
