Tenxx Presents Quiet Pain 1990

Above, we’ve got the latest from Wichita, Kansas by way of Newark, Delaware rapper TENXX (pronounced Ten Thousand). I’m not really sure who I can compare him to, because he’s got a Wale flow and KRIT-like lyricism about life and loss. I think that’s as apt of a comparison as I can think of without selling him short.

“Quiet Pain” finds the artist speaking on a variety of subjects, from the loss of his grandmother to his newfound progression as an artist. He does it all while walking that fine line between sadness and optimism and coming out stronger because of it. I love the production on this one, as it reminds me of something I would’ve had Benji cook up for a project where I was spitting my soul out on wax. Shameless plugs aside, the track is beautiful music and that’s all you can really ask for from artists: that they provide the most-beautiful (to them) music they can provide. Check out the track (via Spotify and Audiomack) and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
