WELCOME TO THE MIND OF L. DOT
ARTISTS OF #BARLIFE INC
Leon C Hinton (born on March 21st, 1984), better known as L. Dot®, is an unsigned American hip hop recording artist currently residing in Killeen, Texas by way of District of Columbia. He is birthed by his mother, Raynell Hinton, and his father, Cornell Lartman.
Starting music at the age of 8 years old, L. Dot® went by the previous name Young Phenom. He was known for battle rap and freestyle. In June 2002, he then joined the United States Army in the Field Artillery element and was assigned to Ft. Hood, Texas (Killeen, Texas area). During that time, he was with a group called Full Deck Records. At that time, L. Dot® was married and begin to put his music on hold for his family. At the time with music on pause, he still would write songs but not record them. During his two tours in Iraq and time in the military, he would do battles and freestyles here and there to keep his “skills” sharpened. During that period, he went thru a divorce on April 2011.
With music still on hold, L. Dot® had many obstacles. From 2006-2014, he has been in near death situations, faced probation time, and had to bury his 2nd daughter. With nowhere to turn at that point, he felt that life was lost. His friends and family that knew him well, knew of his capabilities in music, especially with his craft being influential. So, they encouraged L. Dot® to get back into what he loves and to not hold back.
With L. Dot® being a retiree of the military, and father of 4 children; including 1 adopted and one deceased, he has taken his past experiences and put his pain into music. His first mixtape "Back To The Basics" was an 11 track mixtape released on January 1st, 2017. Some songs included on it was Get Out Of My Way, Goodbye (A Tribute to “Lenni”), and F*** Love. On January 27th, 2017, he released an eight-track EP album titled “Society’s Product", which featured his fans' favorites “Day Ones” and “Pipe Down”.
He is for certain that music is a passion of his and it tells a story of who he is, where he has been and where he is planning on going. Outside of creating music and writing his reflections, he also enjoys spending time with his family and friends, bowling, and riding his motorcycle. Some of his musical idols are Cassidy, Joyner Lucas, Nas, Papoose, Notorious B.I.G (R.I.P), and Big L.
