He made his first recording in an actual studio at the age of ten years old on the end of one of his fathers, Kwmane Berry records.

Dolo was also the oldest child of his mother, Lynn Berry’s three children. On his matriculation through life many times he had to play as an authoritative figure for his younger siblings. With everything Dolo had to face in life, rapping became the outlet for him to express himself. Even as a student in school at each grade level his teachers noticed that he was exceptionally well in writing and poetry. His peers began to notice him in his high school days because he used to engage in many freestyle battles before and after school where he would have to uphold his reputation of being the nicest MC around. Rapping came very natural for the aspiring artist in High School he formed a rap group with two of his closest friends and they were called the “Blue Boyz”.
