J(X) Speaks on His Stance on Rap with “The Exodus”

J(X) described “The Exodus” as “the conclusion to the ‘Dirt on the Pavement’ EP…a project about stepping into the power of being labeled the ‘outcast’ in an artform that never was meant to be mainstream.” In other words, J(X) on “The Exodus” relishes in his somewhat alternative roots as an artist and a human in this rap game. Over a beat by Li Wrecca, J(X) rips the smooth, boombap-heavy track and makes it know that he’s not going anywhere. In fact, there are more people like him than there are unlike him, if one really stops to think about hip-hop in 2023. Yes, we have mainstream acts. A lot of them, for better or worse. However, the vast majority of us are underground artists who do it for the love of the music–not for a check (though the money’s nice at times). Check out the track below and support dope music in all its forms. Also, be sure to peep the DOTP EP as well (linked here).
