Lost Dogg was born at Charity Hospital and raised in New Orleans 9th ward. His roots spread deep through the N.O, as he has lived and does business all over the city. In the 9th ward, he started his rap career at age 14, along with the introduction to the drug game. This is not a game at all. Many family and friends of Lost Dogg have lost their lives to this “game” - specifically his two cousins, Hollis and Troy. Both were victims of gun violence in 1996 & 1997. Feeling as if he had lost two g’s – Ganstas/Doggs to the game he chose to adopt the name Lost Dogg.
His music represents “the bridge between gansta and conscious rap”. It’s a raw representation of a southern thinker. He blends his lyrics with thoughtfulness and aggression to convey a message of consciousness. His musical influences include ,Soldier Slim, Tupac Shakur, Eightball & MJG, DMX , Mac The Camouflage Assassin to name a few.

Lost Dogg is focused on sounding the alarm to wake a sleeping giant, All Peoples. United to end Poverty, Injustice, and Blasphemy, Lost Dogg will lead the charge to World Peace. Really, he believes that. Lol
