Born Craig Allen, on November 20, 1986, in Baltimore, Md, he grew up in a single-parent household on the east side of Baltimore with his mother and was initially influenced by Three 6 Mafia and other hardcore rappers. At the age of 13 he began composing lyrics for songs and count bars accurately.
Though growing up for Mrdotlegend was rough, the number one constant in his life was music. When he was 17 years old, Mrdotlegend performed in his school’s talent show dedicating his performance to his late brother, Antonio Gerrod Allen, who died that very year.
Aside from losing his brother, Mrdotlegend endured yet another life altering experience when he was shot twice; once in the face and once in the hand, with a sawed off shot gun, by an ex-associate.
After 11 surgeries, 18 units and six pints of blood he lost 6 months of his life. He suffered a great deal from that experience as he had to partake in numerous hours of rehabilitation therapy; learning to talk and write all over again.
“Getting shot only made me stronger and made me look at life differently”, says Mrdotlegend.
Moreover, Mrdotlegend established himself as a solo artist with over a dozen mixtapes and some the public are yet to hear as he releases them strategically.
