BadFinga, William G. Calhoun, was born in Amarillo Texas. Being a typical kid, who liked music, he was introduced to the sounds of the Sugarhill Gang, it was 1978. Two years later his family moved to Houston Texas. He was a resident of Westbury and a student at Anderson Elementary. This was the time of UTFO and The Double Dutch Bus. Soon, after his family moved over to Sharpstown where, he fell in with the creative flow of Eric B. & Rakim, Slick Rick, Fat Boys, Heavy D., and Doug E. Fresh. He was often in trouble at Ed White Elementary for beating on the desk and making his classmates jam to the beat. His last day of fifth grade is when his family moved yet again. This time the move was to Missouri City, Texas. Hunters Glen III was the neighborhood, sixth grade, M.C.J.H. was the school. Beat boxing in the bathroom was the thing to do. A question often came up in Mo. City Jail House (MCJH because that school had no windows) "who had the most bass William Calhoun or Eric Hurks." There was no out beat boxing either one of the most jamming boxers at the Mo. If Badfinga was not beat boxing, pop locking, and break-dancing, he was practicing his scratching technique way before he even got to the eighth grade. You could often find young William trying to knock the roof off of his mom's house in Briargate, instead of practicing his Bass Clarinet (concert band) or Tenor Sax (jazz band). Along came 1986 where Finga spent his Freshman year roaming the halls of Willowridge High jamming Public Enemy, Too Short, Steady B., Kwame, Rodney O & Joe Cooley, L.L. Cool J., Kool Moe Dee, Biz Marke, N.W.A., Just Ice, Spice I, Ice T., Queen Latifah, Sweet Tee, Scarface, Run DMC, and Darrel Scott mix tapes. While in the Mighty Willowridge Eagle Marching Band, he started writing songs that rhymed at the end. After finishing high school he went to Southern University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where, he had a partial band scholarship to march in The Human Juke Box. While at S. U. he had a roommate, when his roommate would enter their townhouse comments were made that Will was always on the wheels of steel, Will would reply by flipping him off thus became the title of "BadFinga" he is a D.J. first and a lyrical genius second. While at Tommy Jefferson's recording studio in Glen Oaks (a Baton Rouge neighborhood joint where a lot of local artist recorded) Finga met MC Nero. Nero a local celebrity became good partners with Badfinga. They worked together on various projects and eventually BadFinga started opening up for The Nero B, Jamming Click which was made up of several local groups. Bad has even opened for Easy E, Bone Thugs In Harmony, Mystical and Tim Smooth. Over the next ten years Badfinga would throw and DJ hundreds of parties, block shut-downs, wedding receptions, etc. Always staying true to his penmanship about past life experiences he is laced with over 300 songs ready to hit the studio at any given second. Finally, over many years Finga has hit the underground circuit with his self titled debut album, "Say It Ain't So." This joint is filled with clever rhymes from the lyrical genius with a twisted sense of humor and not to mention the 6 to 7 tons of bass graped throughout the blazing sixteen tracks. So, turn your amplifier down a little as to not blow your speakers and check BADFINGA out and give him a holla.
