Born and raised in Los Angeles to a Mexican household, XP is a hip hop artist, songwriter, and producer. He works with the homeless population of Los Angeles, doing philanthropy feeding and clothing the needy, giving back is what really drives his passion for the streets and hip hop. As an advocate of prop 215. XP blessed the first high times cannabis cup held in San Bernardino in February 16th, 2013 and has been on the legal side of making cannabis medicine. In his youth, he was driven to music as a way of coping with his environment. Growing up in the tuff L.A. streets, being a product of gang life, drugs, poverty, and violence. He soon realized that voicing his life threw rhymes and writing down his day to day struggles gave him purpose. He used music as his outlet to tell his story. Music was his source of life, during tough times.
XP began his career as a member of the group Rhyme Addicts with friends: IllWerd and ISuppose, who he met battle rapping in high school. Within a few years, the Rhyme Addicts began independently booking sold out shows, in addition to opening for such established artists as Wu-Tang, Dilated Peoples, Talib Kweli, The Game, Nipsey Hustle and many more. After completing several albums with the Rhyme Addicts, XP began releasing solo projects which led to three international tours in Europe, twice in 2012 and again in 2014.
XP is currently working on a project with super producer ICE ROCKS of DXA crew out NY titled NOMADS. Explaining their journey through music, they have released a few visuals for the album and are doing promo leading up to the projects release.
