In the world of hip-hop wordplay, verbal sparring and vocal turf wars are commonplace. With this Wild West mentality so prevalent, an emcee is only as good as the last verse he spouts. For Jackson's X-it Only, the seamless nomadic journey as a member of several groups to blowing up the underground circuit has been long and, at times, tumultuous. However, X-it has remained steadfastly dedicated to his craft—honing his skills by reinventing himself—and he has stuck to a tried and true formula of raucous abrasive lyrics.
#"My music is cinematic in nature, and like a movie when you turn off the television, there is supposed to be a visual expression left on your brain. After his early experiences, X-it became a founding member of several prominent groups that have released projects over the years in Jackson. This tour of duty has included stints with Focus, Concentration Camp and Physical Phorum. However due to creative differences and the need for greater expression, X-it struck out on his own. In the process he released a critically underground solo project entitled "Lost Innocence." The album found X-it coming into his own as an emcee. The album's a vintage narrative of guns, drugs and violence held together by a foundation of moral regret and introspection.
#"When I put 'Lost Innocence' together, I wouldn't necessarily say I changed the game, but more or less (I) let people be aware of the change in time. It's like I'm a lyricist so I have to stay true to what I do, but I also have some background history with some street dealings," X-it says. "At one point, when I first started this off, I was like I'm trying to get away from where I was at. And then I came to the conclusion and realized that all of this was me. So I circulated it and put it all together and formulated myself as a whole. So it has a street feel, but it has lyrical content that is thought provoking also."
#Around the time the buzz from "Lost Innocence" began to dissipate, X-it began what he calls a mix-tape assault in an attempt to increase his exposure outside Jackson. "I was given an opportunity to do freestyle for a deejay in Texas," X-it explains. "He liked the verse, I kicked so he invited me back. Then another deejay heard that verse and called for a verse, so I just kept it moving."
#X-it has been heard throughout the country popping up on mix-tape and radio-mix shows in markets from Cleveland to California. X-it attributes his exposure to two factors—relationships and work ethic. "I love recording, and as an artist you have to be willing to hit the studio every time you get the chance, day or night and, regardless of the situation, be it a guest appearance or your project. Every opportunity allows you as an artist the chance to improve and better refine your message," says X-it.
#To date, X-it has appeared on mix tapes by deejays Dolla out of San Antonio, Pizal out of Orlando, Fla., G-Spot and Joey Fingaz out of Cleveland, Ohio and Jackson's own Phingaprint. He has also participated in on-air freestyle competitions hosted by Davey D and Shamako "The Dragon" Noble.
#"X-It has a nice flow. I think he'll have a serious career," says G-Spot.
#This serious career can only be attributed to one thing. X-it says: "Like any artist ,hip-hop is an expression of my life, and I'm dedicated to being as true to the art as possible. Everything I construct is open to interpretation, that's why I'm still in this game when a lot cats have fell to the wayside."
I UNDERSTAND NOW WHAT IS MEANT BY SUPPORTING ONES OWN ARTIST .......... TO STAND BEHIND A ARTIST TO SHOW THOSE WHO LOVE THE ARTIST MUSIC THAT HIS CITY/STATES IS ALL IN WITH THEM. NOW I LISTEN TO PLENTY ARTIST MUSIC ON THE DAILY. EVERYDAY I STROLL THROUGH ......REVERBNATION/ YOUTUBE/ SOUNDCLOUD AND OTHER SITES TO FIND CREATIVITY (AND THEIR'S ALOT OF AWESOME TALENT OUT THERE).

IS IT SHARING IT 2 YOUR PAGE AND OTHERS/ IS IT HITTING THE LIKE BUTTON ON EVERYTHING YOU SAY OR POST ON YOUR PAGE/ IS IT COMING OUT TO EVERY EVENT/ OR IS IT WHEN ONE TELLS OTHERS ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOUR DOING ??? SO,... IS SUPPORT DOING ALL MY WORK FOR ME?....OR IS IT STANDING BEHIND THE WORK, GRIND AND TIME ONE PUT IN ON PROMOTING MY MUSIC ?(HUM!!!!!!!) NOW, MANY WILL GET WHAT I'M SAYING,.....
