Florida is not only an attraction for hitting the sand and swimming, but it also houses some of the most talented artists out right now. Calling himself Slxda, the XDA in his name stands for ‘exotic’ and he has made it clear he wants to do everything different and in his own style. The biggest concern for Florida independent artists is feeling as if they’re not taken seriously because they do not necessarily have the same popularity accolades that mainstream artists receive. Rapper Yvng Slxda hails from a small town in Florida called Wimauma. Slxda has made quite the name for himself already back at home and his team has a full path for his continued growth. With the rise of social media and millennials being attracted to the lime lights, the independent artist scene can be full of pressures to dress and carry yourself a certain way to get hits. Slxda is above the rest based on staying grounded, humble, and focused on his music. Being only 15 years old, his manager is helping him with balancing school and recording. Slxda has the personality and look that sales in the music business. His delivery is full of energy and he would love to sign with Quality Control Records.
Yvng Slxda has a new EP dropping at the end of the month titled ‘Diamond in The Rough’, and his 1st tour performance in Tampa. When it comes to business and being in the entertainment industry, the serious artists will always have a structured plan or goals to stay consistent. Yvng Slxda’s overall 1-year plan is to continue to grow a strong fan base and interact with them more. With the success off his music he also has hopes to buy his mother a new house. His favorite female rapper is Megan Thee Stallion, so hopefully we can see a feature from the two of them in the future. Of course, with being a full-time artist he does not get much time for fun, so his biggest hobby is recording music. The truth is you cannot stop what you were born to do. This year has been exceedingly difficult in the music business. Several artists have lost large sums of money due to not being able to tour or do appearances so its no surprise that his hardest challenge of 2020 was the Coronavirus putting a damper on his show performances. Although he made it through the storm, with the release of his upcoming EP we can expect a full schedule from him in 2021.
