Hip-hop was built around lyrics: the art of storytelling and the power of rhyme. Fierce, aggressive and from the street, hip-hop is often filled with bravado and fronting. It’s rare to find an artist who walks it like he talks it.
Staxx is that artist.
Born into a tumultuous life in Taunton, Mass., and blessed with innate talent, Staxx was on his way to becoming a statistic: broken home, high school dropout, determined to be a rapper but lacking direction and focus. Despite difficult times, a hardened past and a life of struggle, music always brought him back to center. Now he’s ready to share his experiences with the world.
Staxx recently completed his debut album, Writin’ My Mind. It was produced, recorded and mixed by respected up-and-coming industry producer Lü Balz, whose many credits include, but are not limited to, tracks for Juvenile, Rachel Loy, Tyga, Sugar Ray, and Speech from Arrested Development.
Staxx kicks off with the first single “Turn You On,” featuring Brian Angel of Day26 being released by Bronx Bridge Entertainment, Inc./Fontana, launching a powerful new team and a step forward in hip-hop’s positive resurgence. I’ll Be There utilizes the Spinners hit “ I’ll Be Around” which is a smash track. Staxx is ready to infuse the Hip-Hop game with more fire lyrics.
