Aug.30th – Rudy Pardee of The L.A. Dream Team drowned in a freak scuba-diving accident in Catalina , California , on this day in 1998.
The L.A. Dream Team were one of the front-runners of West-Coast rap and electro hip-hop whose influence would later be heard through groups like J.J. Fad , The Black Eyed Peas and The World Class Wreckin’ Cru which featured a young Dr.Dre.
After The L.A. Dream Team disbanded in 1989 after their 3rd and last album “Back To Black” , Pardee went to work for Universal as a Business Service Analyst and Projects Manager.
