About Him

Grew Up… in the hood. Inglewood, in South Central Los Angeles, isn’t the best environment for a child. Doughboy, along with his friend Chris, spent much of their youth in jail after being caught shoplifting.

Living… back at home with his mother and his half-brother, Ricky. Doughboy has only just been released from a stint in prison, but claims that he’s committed to staying out. “You know I’m out the pen. I’m gon’ keep my ass out this time,” he says.

Profession… none. There aren’t many legitimate jobs available for the residents of Inglewood, especially for a kid with no education.

Interests… surviving. Doughboy sees himself as a ghetto child. He has all of the street smarts that his innocent half-brother seems to lack. His chosen pastime usually involves a game of dominos and a tall 40oz. of malt liquor.

Challenge… keeping himself away from a life of crime. It’s hard out in South Central, and no one seems to be stepping up to give Doughboy a chance at a legitimate life. Compared to his star-athlete brother, who hopes to play football for USC, Doughboy has nothing going for him, and has no choice but to turn to back to the ghetto lifestyle.

Personality… stubborn, street smart and tough. Doughboy is an angry young man who’s just trying to find his way in the harsh world of Inglewood. All he sees in life is the bleak prospect of gang life. “Either they don’t know, don’t show, or don’t care about what’s going on in the hood!” he shouts at the TV news channel.
