Hard-hitting and bursting with charisma, HEX is firmly established as an underground tip who deserves to gain wider recognition.
Tracks such as “Limitless,” and “Inferno,” have demonstrated his world class potential, earning radio support at 1Xtra, Capital XTRA, Kiss Fresh and Reprezent Radio, as well as a place in Vevo DSCVR’s Artists to Watch 2019 list.
Towards the end of 2018, HEX dropped a big single with with a love interest from Canada in mind. The accompanying KC Locke-directed video featured the rapper travelling from his hometown in the UK to Toronto in order to connect with a Canadian girl he was checking for. The song is one of his most popular to date and the video has been viewed close to 250K times.
Recently signed to 12 Tone in the US, over the last 3 months HEX has been working non-stop, making moves in the US, alongside the world’s hottest producers—Grammy Award winner, CBMix (Chance the Rapper, Kanye West) and 2x Grammy Nominated producer and 808 Mafia member, Purps (Wiz Khalifa, Migos).
HEX’s latest single is the ADP-produced “Blow.” The single was made to call out the disbelievers and skeptics that ever doubted him. Hex declares, “when you say you’re getting bags you mean cocaine, when I say I’m getting bags I’m getting paid,” concluding with, “we ain’t got the same buzz, I’m blowing up with no drugs.”
Hailing from Nottingham, HEX’s patchwork of influences and experiences has made him the artist he is today. On one side of the family were the creators: his dad played in a band, while his uncle worked as a music producer in London. On the other side were the curators: his mother played a collection of varied albums through the house, alerting his ears to new sounds.
Where other acts meander around the surface level, HEX burrows into the core of a feeling, emerging from the depths with a distinct snapshot from the roots of an emotion.
