Interview with Madd Raxx:
Madd Raxx is an up and coming southern artist out of Memphis Tn! Growing up out of two of the most Notorious hoods in Memphis (Orange Mound And North Memphis) this artist has seen his days in the streets which contributed to his hustle and built his ” I Can Do Whatever” mentality!
Where are you from?
Born and raised East Memphis TN
How long have you been making music?
I’ve been making music the past Ten Years!
How many songs /albums have you released to date?
I’ve got 6 songs released currently and a mixtape on the way!
Can you tell us about your latest release and the background and inspirations behind it?
My latest release was ‘Interception’ accessible on SoundCloud and Maddraxx.com. The song was inspired basically from dealing with women and how sometimes women can still be involved in a situation with a dude from a previous relationship that they really don’t like and/or fuck with. Sometimes ladies just need the right dude to come along and help them leave the situation they were in and weren’t really pleased with. Not even neccessarily for a new relationship but for a new experience.. Its always easier to move on when you have someone else keepin your mind occupied!
How have you ended up in the music industry?
Mainly through hard work persistence and dedication! Nothing comes easy but when u want something and work towards it, life will open up doors!
What do you think of the music industry in 2016?
The industry is always evolving and its always new sounds! Hip hop and the technology involved is opening a new avenue for artist and its always new waves to ride to keep shit interesting!
Who do you think the most influential artist?
Currently you have artist like Uzi, Yatchy, Drake, Future, Dolph, 2chainz, Migos and a hand full of other artist running the game but my influences come from artist like Tip, Wayne, 3 6 Mafia.. those were my influences
Who have you collaborated with so far in your career?
So far a few local Memphis artist one in particular is One Take and I’m sure y’all will get familiar with him real soon!
How do you think you differ from other artists?
I think the Main difference between me and other artist is that other artist are stuck trying to ride other artist waves! Being original isn’t very common any more..
Dead or alive, who would be your dream collaboration?
I dream collaboration would probably be with TI! Just because he put on for southern rap along with UGK and 8-ball and MJG but he’s been my biggest influence in music as long as he’s been out so it’s be that collaboration that will tell me ” aye young nigga you in the door”
What was the first album you bought?
The first album I bought was “When the Smoke Clears ” by 3-6-Mafia
What’s your favourite song at the moment?
“I got 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 M’s in my bank account” yeah 21 going hard right now so that “Bank account” junt on repeat
