DOT the Hitman
"Failure's not an option I read the 48 Laws, Hate on me for what? Like you ain't have the same 24"
- DOT the Hitman
This Harlem native always seemed destined for the limelight. At the early age of nine, he realized his love for music and uncanny talent to put words together on his own. The support and responses he received from his community was enough to confirm his belief: He wanted to rap because he was good at it. But it wasn't until many life experiences later, when he was introduced, by a mutual friend, to the infamous Que Butter of XyayX Studios, that he realized what's been missing: the sound! He found himself when he found that sound. Ironically, sharing a mutual concern for the lost Black community is a way of life at XyayX. So Dot felt right at home. Here is where his dreams begin to flourish. Finally exceeding greatly at his craft after taking on an audio engineering apprenticeship under Que, as his mentor, then growing to become partners in the recording studio business together. Dot was finally able to record and mix his own music fit to his liking.
Now back, as a recording artist under the indie umbrella XyayX Music Group, Dot displays his talents and years of experience as a song writer. Inspired by the great likes of Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Jay Z, Nas, Eminem, Treach of Naughty-by-Nature, Buju Banton, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, he began forming a musical identity of his own. His music reflects a Pro Black, militant upbringing. You can sense a pain of the past yet a hope of the future in his voice when he raps. Also, being dubbed as a "lyrical ladies man", his alter egos Mr. Seduction and Black Ceasar, became highly favored among his female fans. His style of music projects a wide range of versatility stretching from fluent, sharp, witty play on words to melodic chants and cadences. And when he combines both styles, you sense something magical is about to happen with his catchy hooks and the ability to adapt to any flow. As a leader and inspiring song writer, expect to see and hear a lot more from Dot in the present.
