Sonny Hendrixx and Daxflow Damn clout-chasers, rap fakers and hip-hip hypocrites with their hard-hitting single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
An aggressive single that uses light footwork to deliver powerhouse stingers and reality checks, Damn offers throat-cutting delivery woven into powerfully potent five-finger cadences. As synths lay the foundation for Sonny and Dax’s lyrical homicide, straightforward trap drum rhythms stick around to carry out the finality of the assault.
“It seems like everyone these days is trying to microwave their music careers, doing whatever gimmick they can to get attention as fast as possible,” Hendrixx says. “I want to be recognized as a lyricist. I’ve treated every verse/hook like it was going to be my last. I appreciate the hip-hop culture and movement so much that I get very bothered seeing how lackadaisical some artists can be with their craft.”
When you take the time to listen to the lyrical work Hendrixx and Daxflow put into Damn, it’s easy to find these two up-and-coming producers are deadly serious about what they do. While these two performers have been in the game for a while, building impressive resumes along the way, it isn’t lost on them that the music world around them is changing. However, staying true to their roots, they deliver a listening experience that pays homage to the classics while producing a banger fit for any stereo system.
“Don’t count me out in this old school-to-new age crossover,” Daxflow says. “Never stick me in one lane as I can deliver with many different styles. I’m an easy person to judge when you don’t take the time to know the real story. I never change in regard to keeping it real with my people, but my progression is unmatched. If I find a way to get something accomplished, a lot of the time it’s to give hope to those that need it.”
Daxflow is a Toronto-born hip-hop artist and judge for rap battles for KOTD. He is working on a series of singles with an eye on his next EP. Hendrixx (fka Rooks McCoy) is an Oshawa local who has been producing hip-hop for the past decade. He credits being sober for the success he has found recently. Recently, he placed second in Anno Domini Nation’s Best Rapper Alive contest, which earned him an EP deal. He is now working on new material for his upcoming album Adeus — a passionate amalgamation of anti-love songs about past relationships, drug addiction, and life’s constant obstacles.
