When you think of Texas hip-hop several legacy staples come to mind, such as the Swishahouse movement, Rap-A-Lot Records, DJ Screw, Bun B, Pimp C, OG Ron C, Michael Watts, the Dirty South Ridaz from Dallas, and many more who have paved the way for Texas music. Today Texas has a hand full of young fresh talent expanding outside the region and receiving national attention such as solidified stars, Travis Scott, and Post Malone and upstarts like Tay-K, Maxo Kream, Cuban Doll, Blake, and more who are all consistently receiving national media attention and touring outside of the Texas region.
Another Texas artist who is on the radar is Craig Xen. Craig is a Houston native but has close ties with Florida artist XXXTentacion, Wifisfuneral, Ski Mask The Slump God, Robb Banks and more. He toured with the XXXTentacion last year thrilling cities with his high energy performance.
If you not familiar with Craig Xen, you might want to add him to your list to get to know. Craig has racked up millions of plays on his SoundCloud and has features from XXXTentacion, Young Bans, Denzel Curry, and more. We believe Craig will be the next big thing to come out of Texas. If you listen to tracks on his Soundcloud he presents tons of diversity with his music. When you think about the traditional sound and music that comes out of Texas, this is far from it and the reason why we believe Xen is destined for long-term success.
It looks like we will be receiving a project from Craig soon. He twitted in January ” + project is complete, just waiting for samples to be cleared”.
We encourage you to get to know Craig Xen now.
