The Dot also known as Dot10000 started fresh as a kid break dancing and rhyming. While showin’ his skills being a member of the Mpls BodyBreakers, he quickly became one of the freshest break dancers in North Minneapolis. During his reign in the infamous local rap krew XGOVERNMENT, Dot10 began to get noticed for his elite rhyme spitting, putting out various independent releases thru this own imprint.

Flash lightspeed and many rhymes later….. This new rapStar receives underground acclaim in 2006/07 with his hometown tribute "Park Pioneers", off his debut album 'MegaWatt'. In 2008, The Dot springs back into action with his first installment "American Made” mix-tape (free download), which features the smash single "Unbelievable" with Cee Knowledge of the ledendary Digable Planets. His second installment "Inauguration" EP is available on itunes with a third installment "State of the State" album due out later this year 2009. A true livin’ legend, he effortlessly bench-presses rhymes over beats like body builders. This Rap Heavyweight collides refreshing lyrics and original production for that new age, cutting-edge sound. This emcee/DJ combo make the perfect blend of raw showmanship creating energetic live performances.

The Biggest Influences to me and why I do this thing called Hip-Hop, would be that all pioneering artists true school and next generation alike make me feel like I can make a difference, push the envelope and put good hip-hop music out, It's a beautiful thing.
