A rapper from Maryland, Nxll always had a strong inclination towards music. He started his career as a music producer in high school and started rapping during his freshman year in college. Artists like Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Travis Scott, and Tyler the Creator are only some of his musical influences.
Now at the age of 23, Nxll has crafted his own unique sonic style. His music has a lot of dark undertones to complement his voice and give him the perfect soundscape to convey whatever image he sees fit. He’s currently in the process of finishing his EP, which he will release by late January or early February next year.
Nxll’s latest single, ‘Animal,’ is a hard-hitting, infectious, and confidence-imbuing track. He teams up with Hungarian producer Notus to execute his vision for the song. The Maryland rapper shares, “I came across Notus’ instrumental, felt the energy it had, and immediately started writing to it. I’m hoping that listeners will feel the same energy and confidence that I felt“.
Listening to the beat first is crucial to Nxll’s songwriting process. He usually works on the flow and tries to piece together words from there. He says, “What words come out can depend on my mood and current state of mind, or any other substance that is influencing me“.
