" LeftLane E / MR. DAVENPORT "
Eric "LeftLane E " Davenport was born on the Southside of Chicago on June 2, 1987,
as a child he was always listening to music or entertaining the family, everyone knew that one day he would make his mark in the business of music.
At the ripe young age of 15, during the beginning of the Hip Hop era, LeftLane E got real serious, and started connecting with local "Beat Producers" for tracks
to write and rap to, he was always interested in making music, writing lyrics and performing.
It wasn't until his 1st performance at Burnside Scholastic Academy, that he felt his calling, at that moment he fell completely in love with being in front of the Mic and enjoying the reaction from the crowd as commanded the stage.
LeftLane E has the Charisma, Talent and Ability to get the party started and get the crowd excited and up on their feet with his stage presence,
His influence for music came from such artist as, Jay-z, Jada kiss, & Lil' Wayne,
but LeftLane E showed his true love for music by putting out a street album, called "Address Me As Mr. Davenport" on his own label, called "Stret History" all with no financial backing, other than the support of his family, his street cd took the streets of Chicago by storm !
That's when everyone started calling him by the street album title
"Mr. Davenport"......well the name sounded pretty good, so it stuck.
During the time he was promoting his 1st cd he was asked to perform at many Venues and Clubs throughout the Chicagoland, such as Bill's Blue's Bar, Club Candela," The "Legend", The Checkerboard Lounge, Club 43" and he also performed at " The Taste of Chicago-Summer Concert Series" as an opening act.
Also, while in Minneapolis, Minnesota he appeared at the popular club called "The Bar Fly, and he tore the roof off the sucker at "The Red Sea Club, and wowed the crowd at the famous " Rogers Skate Park", and in Los Angeles he
was invited to performed with other rappers for a week at "The Speakeasy Nite Club.
All the ladies just love his sexy approach on stage, but the fellas. really dig his mean Swagger and Performer's Attitude.
So not to keep the streets waiting too much longer, he's currently in the studio and will be soon dropping the mix tape called "Arrogance Vol .1" this spring of 2010.
So get ready world......" Lil' E / Mr. Davenport" is on his way ~
