Hexyl - Interview

1. Tell us your rap name and where are you from?

My Names Hexyl.

2. What made you start making music? My Dad was always in a bunch of bands and got me into playing drums when I was really little. I was like 4 when he bought me a drumset and I just always fucked with music harder than other shit. I always knew this was what I was gonna do. Current day even when I was in high school all my friends were rappers, one time my friend Vibe was writing to something and I was talking shit. He was like "You do it then" So I tried and it came out hot. Havent stopped since

3. Who are your influences in Music? Odd Future, Nirvana, 50 Cent, Sex Pistols, Midnight Society, Daft Punk, Young Thug, Michael Jackson, Too $hort, SeshHallowWaterboys

4. What is your take on the underground rap scene right now? Its mostly just a bunch of Melvins who wanna be Lil Peep Or XXXTentacion. There are a lot of hidden Gems as well, but people are afraid to be different I think

5. As an artist who has to compete with thousands of others for streams/plays, what makes your music worth people clicking on? Listening to Hexyl is scientifically proven to bring good vibes.

6. You have 1 person to thank, who would it be? My Engineer, while im writing this interview we've been mixing for about 3 days straight. He probably sick of me but we puttin in work.

7. What is your process for recording music ? I usually get as fucked up as possible and spend way too much time doing everything. Im notoriously hard to difficult to work with.. I dont mean to be I just want everything to be perfect. I usually remake a song atleast 20 times before it ever sees the light of day. Im very slow to do everything but theres a reason

8. Any upcoming projects or singles fans should be getting ready for this year? Im releasing a song with Beamon very soon, hopefully itll be out by the end of this year. I work on a lot of music at a time, Yall got a lot to look foward to.

9. What keeps you motivated and on path towards your goals for music?

Drugs mostly but Im addicted to working on music. I dont really think about anything else, I love performing the most so going on tour is a huge goal. But I also wanna make an album thats really good. Streams/Money dont matter, if I can make something im proud of ill be happy.

10. What impact do you want to have on the world? I really don't know, I wouldnt say I have bad intentions but I dont wanna be corny and say to change the world or something hahaha I mostly just wanna be remember for who i am now

11. What's your best collaboration experience with another artist or producer? Im gonna have to say working with @TheBeamon . I started going to a professional studio to keep up with his quality and now thats the only way Ill record. Just a big learning experience, it surprised me how such a big artist was so down to earth. The song isnt out yet, but it's my favorite one i've made

12. Who does all of your cover art or do you make your own? Visual art is the bane of my existence. I can do a lot of stuff but art isnt one of them. Most of the time my lazy ass just takes a selfie

13. Who makes most of your beats or production? RIPCavallo and Baphmadeitnasty. Cavallos in rehab right now but thats like my best friend and he produced a majority of my music.Ive been working hard without him, it feels kinda odd. Although we usually dont talk while we make music or we'll end up hating each other for the day. Im way too picky about everything.

14. What can we expect next from you in 2022? Album of the Year
