This is Kxmikaze.

Kxmikaze, tell us more about how you first got into music.

It was about my sophomore year in high school when I really got into making my own music , I had met my engineer & producer 20K The Producer and spoke to him about getting studio time at Island Studio’s in Chicago.

We booked the session and I recorded my first song ever called “Never Wrong” with another artist/friend of mine, KiddSolo.

So, as soon as we made the song we played it at least 20 times during the car ride back home.

It was just a whole new aura of good energy we got when we finally stepped out that studio and were happy with our progress.

Hella artists know what I mean. 

About a week later of showing the song to a couple friends and getting feedback from them, I made the cover to the song, turned the cover into a video with the song playing in the background and then posted it on Instagram, Snapchat & FaceBook.

It literally got 100+ people showing mad love, sharing, commenting, liking the post & we ended up dropping it just a couple days later around the end of October, 2018.

After we hit a couple hundred listens on SoundCloud was when we dropped another song called “Games” which people LOVED and kept on dropping more and more music since then.

What first got my attention in music was being exposed at an early age to the sounds of Daddy Yankee, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Limp Bizkit, The Pixies, Bruno Mars, and Wisin Y Yandel.

It was around 2nd and 3rd grade when I really started listening to lyrics and began to vibe with different genre’s of music.

I remember writing the lyrics from different songs onto a piece of paper, rearranging the cuss words & lyrics and pretending as if they were mine.

I felt like I had written my own music and was a pop star myself.

Around that age is when I really fell in love with the different sounds of music and how they made me feel.

Whether it was nodding my head to The Pixies, singing my soul out to Bruno Mars, vibing to Daddy Yankee with my parents or taking on an Eminem song word for word; it was just something that caught my attention quick.

What would you say separates your sound/style from other artists?

I feel like what really separates myself from other artists is the fact that I’m so fearless with what I do.

Before I even started putting myself out on social media as an artist and posting my music, I already had a set goal in my mind of what I wanted to make out of this.

I knew that sticking true to myself and pushing what I’ve loved for years was gonna work out for me.

I envisioned myself at the top while I was below the bottom!

And that’s one thing a lot of people need to understand, nobody’s gonna give you the vision for you.

You need to want it more than anybody else and push yourself to be what you wanna be.

I manifest everything.

Speak, think, and work everything into existence.

I thank God for allowing me to be in the position I am today and giving me the strength to always push for better.

Another factor is that I like to speak my mind whether it’s on a song or social media.
