Give 3 words that best describe yourself?
Creative - Intelligent - Bipolar.
How would you describe your musical style?
Old-school Boom bap - with a Futuristic Rhyme Style.
Who is your superhero alter-ego and why?
<HeXagon X> HipHop ‘Super-Villain’ Emcee… My Tracks tend to lean to the Dark-Side & One day, in the middle of a track, the Name ‘Hex X’ popped up in a verse so I stuck with it because I liked the Sound of the Words.
Where do you find your artistic inspiration?
Straight from the Old-school masters like KRS-One & Jeru Tha Damaja… back when boom bap & lyrical Flow mattered.
How many times does it take for you to listen to a song that you love before you actually start hating it instead?
I feel that hate is a strong old word in terms of Music! When I make any track, initially, I am not too happy with the result because I have been working on the same sounds repetitively for hours on end & have dissected & picked it apart from every angle. It is only on reflection, listening back a few days later that I can really get a realistic judgement of the overall sound… Then sometimes I’m happy with the results, but then again, I am ‘Bi-Polar’ Type 1 & a perfectionist so I always feel that I could do better.
If fans remember one thing about you what would it be?
Probably my use of Vocabulary… I read the Dictionary a lot & make sure I understand the definition of the words I use… I find that a lot of Rappers these days don’t have the kind of linguistic understanding that they really should If they are calling themselves Emcee’s or Rappers.
Who is your favourite artist/band at the moment?
Dr Syntax, R.A.The Rugged Man, KRS-One, Jehst Sonny Jim…to name a few!
Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is?
Its the dark, tribal boom bap kinda vibe - with the effort put into crafting my flow in a unique way.
Speaking of "ingredients"...pineapple on pizza, a gift from the Gods? or mankind's biggest treachery?
Gift from the universal - fruit & fromage higher powers... Obviously!
What in your opinion, is the biggest barrier an artist like yourself has to face and overcome, to gain any commercial success?
There are just so many people trying to do the same thing these days, all trying to break into the commercial world of music. The problem is, If you're creating Hip-Hop just to ‘make it big’ in some way, then you have fallen at the first hurdle! It should always be about the love of the music first… If you dedicate yourself to becoming an artist, then persistence and passion will inevitably lead to improvement and a higher likelihood of some kind of success commercially… For me personally, the satisfaction I get is not in any way, shape, or form, about success, or money… it’s about me mastering an art-form and learning how to express myself in the clearest way I can.
How can fans-to-be gain access to your music? Do you have a website with sample songs or a demo CD?
In closing, tell us something about any projects and ideas you have in store or are already working on?
I’m excited to say that I have teamed up with the legendary producer Configa to bring you my debut EP… ( Artificial Benevolence) released through ‘ Configaration Records ’ within the next few months.
