Dawg Father, PhD. 100% Hater Proof

Taken from


"I was born Jerry Anthony Reddick, but I’ve had many names in my life: Mack Truck, Ibrahim Ali Muhammad, Sotapppp, The Renaissance Man, Count de Money, Jerry Mack and, as most of you know me, the Dawg Father.


I was born in Halifax in 1958. I am a nineteenth generation Nova Scotian whose ancestors were brought from all over West Africa – places like Timbuktu – to Halifax’s slave markets. I grew up in Halifax, and I am a true Scotian in motion, a Super Nova.


At the age of ten, I started boxing. I spent twenty years as a professional pugilist fighting in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia, Nevada, Washington and the Netherlands. In 1992, I converted to Islam (that’s when I took the name Ibrahim Ali Muhammad). I retired from fighting and became a professional hot dogger."
