Dayton Family Bio

The Dayton Family is a hardcore rap group that hails from the town of Flint, Michigan, USA. The group was originally composed of Bootleg, Shoestring, and Backstabber. The group is now composed of Shoestring, Bootleg and Jake The Flake. Matthew Hinkle aka "Backstabber" was incarcerated sometime after the group released their debut album What's On My Mind?. He has not been released since, so on their follow up album, there was only Shoestring and Bootleg contributing to the album. The title of the album, F.B.I. is significant with Matthew Hinkle's prison sentence. The letters stand for "Fuck Being Indicted". There were guest appearances by Bootleg's brother, Ghetto E and Esham, a local Michigan rapper from Detroit that pioneered acid rap and made way for others in the Michigan rap scene. Ghetto E later became part of the Dayton Family on the release of Welcome to the Dopehouse. The group named themselves after one of the most crime-ridden streets in Flint, Dayton Avenue, which is technically a street, not an avenue.
