New York City, where the lights are bright and the music is even brighter, births another rising star – JX. Born on September 30, 1992, JX, a compelling blend of hip hop, rap, soul, trap, R&B, and drill, has been making waves in the music industry with his authentic sound and lyrical genius.
Born and bred in New York, with a background spanning from Westchester to Brooklyn, JX uses his music as an intimate lens into his life. He started his musical journey in 2011, releasing his debut mixtape, “My Life As An MC”. After 12 remarkable years, his latest single, “Mustang Music Remix,” featuring Kizzy Kobain, has soared to the top of the iTunes charts, firmly establishing JX as an artist to watch in 2023.
The current music scene, as JX notes, is teeming with energy, particularly with the rising popularity of drill music. Amid this fast-paced, dynamic landscape, JX continues to draw inspiration from iconic legends like HOV, Biggie, and Jadakiss, all of whom have shaped his musical persona. The landmark achievement of working with Jadakiss on a project, and even sharing the studio with the late Fred Da Godson, adds remarkable value to JX’s burgeoning career.
Not content with solely conquering the music industry, JX has ambitions that span beyond music into the realms of television and film. As a testament to his expansive creativity, he plans to write scripts and showcase his acting prowess in the near future.
As for his advice to budding artists, JX passionately encourages them to follow their dreams and stay focused. He emphasizes the importance of loving what you do and nurturing your creative instincts. His upcoming song, “Horizon,” a reflective piece written on a beach while contemplating his life journey, echoes this sentiment.
JX’s dream album collaboration roster is a testament to his eclectic taste, featuring names like Jay-Z, Sade, and SZA. His ultimate dream, however, would be to collaborate with the legendary Biggie.
His studio sessions are instinctive, driven by the beats that resonate with his vibe within seconds of hearing them. This natural affinity for music also rings true in his latest chart-topping single, “Mustang Music Remix.”
JX first crossed paths with Kizzy Kobain during culture weekend at Rel Carter’s networking event. Their synergy was immediate, leading to the creation of “Mustang Music Remix,” a track they took from the studio to shooting a music video on the same day, and then hitting the Top 100 iTunes Charts.
The song, produced by Petrofsky, captures the essence of an ultimate partner, drawing parallels to the infamous Bonnie and Clyde. It was released on Cinco de Mayo and will feature on JX’s upcoming album, “Jefe the Don.”
The creation of “Mustang Music Remix” was nothing short of an epic experience, characterized by organic vibes and shared joy among everyone involved. As JX eloquently puts it, “we be back and forth with rounds it be sounding like it’s Fifa, we be racing to the goal and I swear this time I’ll beat ya,” this track is set to be a fan favorite.
JX’s love for hip-hop is undeniable, and with “Jefe the Don” on the horizon, fans have much to anticipate. You can stay updated with new releases and all things JX on Instagram.
