Hollow Da Don aka "Don Dotti" aka "Don Lennon" aka "The Di-ni-ni-non" was born in Brooklyn, New York on January 28, 1984 but he was raised in Queens, New York. Hollow got his start on the streets of New York and Houston, where he moved after turning 14. Like many legends of the craft, battling came naturally to him, transitioning from the cypher to the throwdown with confidence and without difficulty. In 2006, he took his experience to BET's 106 & Park Freestyle Fridays, where his murder streak of seven straight opponents left him in the Hall of Fame. The next year he continued to get his freestyle reps in, putting up a strong performance in the Houston division of Jumpoff's World Rap Championships, earning an MVP nomination and a respectable 8-2 record.
Hollow da don has had numerous stints in the penetentriary.Despite his considerable skills as a freestyler, Hollow's career would take off with the birth of leagues where MCs could blend their frees with written rhymes. Making his NYC's Fight Klub in 2008. Hollow steamrolled the competition, winning ten straight battles before finally falling to New Jersey's Arsonal in a controversial matchup. At the same time, Hollow was tearing through the newly formed East Coast division of Grind Time and making trips out to the Fresh Coast and St. Louis to clash with their veterans. A student of the game, Hollow claimed that his knowledge of battle rap and its fan allowed him to succeed in any environment.
However, it would be back in his hoome of New York where Hollow would leave his biggest mark on the world of battle rap, debuting in SMACK/URL aganist Chicago's Big T. Hollow absolutely dismantled the Chi-Town representative with what is arguably the most complete and devastating performance ever recorded on a URL camera. His mixture of northern and southern slang, vicious street bars and ridiculous joke concepts won over the URL crowd in a way few rappers can.
Today Hollow resides in The Bronx, recording music with his Loyalty Ova Money crew and biding his time until his next big battle. Whoever steps up to the plate better come prepared with and arsenal of tricks if they expect to beat the Di-ni-ni-non at his own game; as Hollow himself is guaranteed to tell you, they're going to need it.
Drake already co-signed Hollow saying he has mad talent, so we'll just have to see what happens. He also has his own clothing brand called Loyalty Ova Money. Hollow has 4 albums (Loyalty Over Money Vol. 1 ), (Loyalty is a Way of Life ), (Money Changes, Loyalty Don't ), and (NY 2 Houston ) with a total of 61 singles. He also has a total of 18 on camera battles.
