History

ladream3The group was formed in the early 1980s by Rudy Pardee and Chris Wilson.

The duo formed their own Dream Team Records label, going on to release their own records and also releases by other California rap artists.

Two of the group’s best known early releases are “The Dream Team Is in the House” and “Rockberry Jam“.

In 1986, the group signed with MCA Records who released their three albums, Kings Of The West Coast (1985), Bad To The Bone (1986), and Back to Black (1989).

Chris Wilson went on to a career in video and music production.

Pardee worked in computing, working for Universal as a Business Services Analyst, and later Project Manager.

Rudy Pardee died in a scuba-diving accident in 1998.
