Dutch was born Bernard James. Dark, sexy,cold-hearted and gangsta, Dutch was nothing to be f***** with. He was always smart; that's why he deemed school unnecessaary. Dutch had a plan-He wanted to be the King of New York. He started his plan by sweeping floors for an Italian man who had connections to the mob. One day a stick-up kid tried to rob the man and Dutch killed him. This was his first body but definitely not the last. This proved to his employer that he was loyal and they gave him a connect to a chop shop. So, at the age of 14, Dutch had money rolling in like a grown man and a team of stickup kids who only stole BMWS and other luxury cars.
But an error of judgement came one day when the biggest car theft they could have attempted went wrong and Dutch had to go to jail. Little did the police know, they did Dutch a favor. After doing his two year bid, Dutch was smarter, bigger, and badder than ever. Hsi mom told him never to let him lock him up like dog ever again without putting up a fight. From that day forward, Dutch vowed to hold court in the streets before he went to jail again.
He resumed his plan on being the King of New York. Ojiwa Kazami ,a nigerian, was the King now. His team, used to the guerilla warfare in Africa, had no problems taking the urban jungles over. He was untouchable. The mob even put two hits out on him and was unsucessful at killing him. This hyped up his legendary status even more. That it, until Dutch came along. See every man had a weakness and Kazami's baby's mother happened to be his. She was the key element in the setup to kill Kazami.
After killing Kazami, Dutch wore his chain( a plate-sized gold dragon with diamonds and rubies for eyes)as a staus symbol meaning, "I'm that n**** now! F*** wit me! Kazami's team and every one loyal to his regime went down in one of the biggest killing sprees New York had ever seen. It was called, "Month of Murder" in the papers.
