500 million is a new release from MrDotLegend. It’s an exciting hip-hop single that leads the MrDotLegend Presents Flawless Victory album, an earlier release from this year. The music video for 500 million will be available on July 4th, just in time for the celebration, on all major platforms.
MrDotLegend, a.k.a. Craig Allen, is a hardcore rapper from Maryland. He was born in 1986 in Baltimore and grew up on the east side of the city. He started listening to hardcore rappers like Three 6 Mafia and others early on and by 13 was composing his first song lyrics and counting bars. As a self-taught artist with strong hardcore rap inspirations, he offers a new sound and a lot of presence.
He did not have an easy childhood, but music serves as a constant source of support. At 17, MrDotLegend's first true performance was a school talent show where he dedicated his act to his late brother, Antonio Gerrod Allen, who had died that year. This was a life-changing experience and not the end to the troubles. Later on, MrDotLegend was shot twice in the face and the hand with a shotgun. This led to 18 surgeries and a loss of six months of the rapper’s life. He had to do extensive rehabilitation, but today he looks back on the experience as something that made him stronger. It helped him take a new look at his life and change his perspective, and also enabled him to start working as a solo artist. These experiences continue to shape his music and offer a degree of rawness and authenticity that can be hard to find and a source of strength as well.
MrDotLegend debuted with his first album in 2016 after releasing over a dozen underground mixtapes. 500 million is a featured track from MrDotLegend Presents Flawless Victory that is now going to become a music video, opening new possibilities for the artist.
