Under the tutelage of Kwabena Antoine Nixon, an elite among the spoken word community in the Midwest, Milwaukee upstart, BLAX, always had a passion for spoken word. Over time, after finding his place in Hip hop, BLAX utilized rap to establish himself as an artist. The transition was seamless. In the early 2000s, he began to pave his own lane and established himself as one of the Midwest’s rising artists. He released his debut in 2005, and remained consistent for the next five years. In 2010, BLAX made the big move to NYC where he landed an internship with Dame Dash at his former DD172 gallery/studio. BLAX worked closely with Dame, producer Ski Beatz, and the Jet Life family – mostly working behind the scenes.
After awhile, however, BLAX took some time off to refine his craft and experiment with his sound. Today, he presents new music that highlights his growth as an artist. To close out the year, BLAX releases a new single – teasing what he has in store for 2017. On the record, BLAX connects with Brooklyn’s own, G.R.A.M.Z. – another up & comer who has been generating a buzz for himself as well. “NOTHIN” is a new banger, produced by Reason, that finds both rappers calling out the “fronters.” Taking turns, BLAX and G.R.A.M.Z. prove they’re on another level, while remaining true to their raps and actions.
