Constantly traveling back & forth, she’s had a bi-coastal up bringing that exposed her to the best of both worlds. Growing up, Dawn Gun was always surrounded with creative arts & music.

Revenge of the Doorknockers is her latest project. I’ve been listening to it and it’s quite refreshing to hear a dope female emcee that’s actually an emcee and selling her skills and not her “sex  image”.    As far as the music goes, this is an actual MIXTAPE.  Its hosted by DJ JiJi Sweet! and mixed by T.B.E.N.T. in true mixtape form.  She beasts on instrumentals like ‘Get Money’,  ‘Knuck if U Buck’, and  ‘Blow the Whistle’ (among many others) to show her versatility, raw talent, and skills. Her lyrics personify what Hip-Hop was and still is.  Real life, energy, fun, and struggle.  Real female emcees are still here.

Don’t wait to jump on the bandwagon because you will be playing catch up.  Start now and build your history with this emcee.

LexZyne Productions is working with Dawn Gun on a mixtape that will hit the streets and the internet in the near future.
