XP Dollars was born and raised in the DMV (DC-MD-VA). Like most kids who grew up in the DMV, he was heavily influenced by what is known as “Go-Go” music. But eventually fell under the spell of hip-hop and artists such as Jay Z, Nelly, Outcast, DMX, Trick Daddy, T.I. and of course the Notorious B.I.G and Tupac Shakur. As a teen, XP combined is love of Go-Go music and hip-hop, performing with several local Go-Go bands.
However, despite his love for music and desire to perform, it often took a back seat to his other passion, motorcycles, where he flourished racing and motorcycle stunting. A move to Atlanta GA, not only led XP to form BlastSquad Ent./MC, but fast Bikes and the Atlanta Night Life also proved to be the catalyst XP needed to revamp his music career. After working endlessly in the studio to develop his own style, he took to the streets, networking and creating a buzz that eventually landed him in the studio working with Grammy Award winning producer, song-writer and instrumentalist, Chink Santana and Rich Sheldon.
His debut Album “ 4 The Love of Dollars” is set for release in 2017.
