Looking for a rapper with a Gatling gun flow that rattles your skull as you attempt to keep up? Look no further than LA-based rapper Antix.
On his latest track, “Shook” Antix shreds the minimal, horn-heavy beat to pieces as he talks about his perseverance in life and in the rap game. Feeling out of place in the UK hip-hop scene, Antix packed up and headed West to the sunny shores of Los Angeles to establish his career. Since then, he’s racked up impressive streaming numbers and built himself a loyal fan following. “I was always trying to be ‘accepted’ by some scene, until I realised that the fans are all that matter. People message me now and tell me my music saved their life, helped them with depression, things like that. You soon realise how important that is…" says Antix about his move.
If “Shook” is any indication, the move worked out in the artist’s favor. From start to finish, Antix is relentless in his delivery. “Well I think I touched on it. I’m Antix, the ultra shifter, the splitter of tectonics.” Aside from the verbal barrage of visceral bars, “Shook” seems to be a metaphor for Antix’s career determination. Over the course of nearly four minutes, the rapper hardly takes a moment to breathe. And if that drive doesn't perk your ears, his clever bars will.
No word on any projects coming through the pipeline for Antix. Until news surfaces, press play on “Shook” above and be sure to keep it locked right here on EARMILK for all things dope hip-hop.
