I’ve been checking for HXLT ever since he signed with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint and I dig the guy. Although he’s not in constant rotation for me, he’s mad creative and really explores and experiments with sound and melody quite a bit on his self-titled debut album and it’s pretty interesting.
One song in particular, called “Perfect,” I can see as being relatable to any creative who sometimes has to deal with the people in their circle who can’t see the vision and maybe that “perfectionist” bug that plagues their output of art or content. Last month he dropped a video for the song, which features the singer getting up and then getting into the ring for a fight club battle. But who’s he really fighting?
