David Hutto, better known by his stage name Boondox, is an American rapper from Covington, Georgia whose stage persona is that of a killer scarecrow. He is signed to Majik Ninja Entertainment.
David Hutto was born in Richmond County, Georgia. At about the age of two, his uncle tried to kill him by drowning him in a swimming pool. Hutto was not popular at his school, frequently got into fights and experimented with drug use.
Hutto listened to heavy metal bands such as Iron Maiden, Metallica and Sepultura, and played bass guitar in several local metal bands before seeking a solo career as a rapper under the name "Turncoat Dirty". While selling cassettes of his early recordings at an Insane Clown Posse concert, the group took notice of his music, and after several phone calls with Joseph Bruce, Hutto was signed to Psychopathic Records, making him the first Southern hip hop performer on the label.
On July 11, 2006, Hutto released his first album as Boondox, The Harvest, featuring appearances from Axe Murder Boyz, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Insane Clown Posse and Twiztid. A music video was filmed for the album's first single, "They Pray With Snakes," directed by Bruce, and Hutto toured with Blaze Ya Dead Homie to promote the album. In 2007, Hutto released the extended play PunkinHed. It peaked at #10 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and #27 on the Top Independent Albums chart. During the same year, he joined Psychopathic Rydas, performing under the name "Yung Dirt". On May 13, 2008, Hutto released his second studio album, Krimson Creek, a more personal work drawing from his past. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, #13 on the Top Independent Albums chart, and #113 on the Billboard 200.
Hutto is set to release his third studio album, South of Hell in 2009.
