[DELAWARE] If you’re the type of person that relies on someone to provide you you’re substances… This is the track that you can relate to. Considering the times when these sources can be unreliable when you need them the most. Rex The Rager expresses his frustrations with his pass experiences on his recent track entitled PACMAN. The track sounds amazing, produced by Prince Ali. Rex The Rager is melodic, but yet packs a punch with his delivery. Rex The Rager expresses the frustrations on waiting for some work and they say in 20 minutes but in reality its 2 hours? Rex is on the search for the right PACMAN.
Summer is a season that’s always well looked forward to especially after long winters. I was honored to start this summer at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE. This a new experience for me and I most say I was impressed. The main act I looked forward to seeing at this festival was Outkast. It has been on my bucket list since I was in second grade to see Outkast perform live so already had me hyped. Then I learned that there were other good hip-hop artists like Vic Mensa, Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino and G-eazy. Vic Mensa had the first hip-hop set early on Friday (June 19th) and put one hell of a show. He has a great stage presence and made sure to interact with the crowd and have everyone dancing. After his set was finished I checked out acts from a few other genres and found a few good acts like the Mowgli’s, arctic monkeys and airborne toxic event. Later that night I say chance the rapper’s set which was good as I expected it to be especially since he was the most talked about artist of the day other than the foo fighters. I finished off Friday by turning up with A-trak and then rocking out to The Foo Fighters.
Saturday I woke up excited for another day of great music especially since I would be seeing Outkast live by the end of the night. I used my time up until then watching great performances from the likes of twenty one pilots, royal teeth, third eye blind, cage the elephant, walk off the earth and imagine dragons. I stood up for nearly two hours before Outkast was scheduled to start their performance to make sure to have a good spot for their set. That was a brilliant idea because an hour before the performance was scheduled to start you could see faces lined up to watch Outkast for as far back as you can see. Andre 3000 came out wearing the white Stankonia wig and a black jumpsuits with “Children of the Cornbread” written across the front. Big Boi had on a more simple dickies styled black outfit with a red fitted cap. They ran threw all of their classic joints and stood there reciting all of the lyrics word for word as did a few others around me. They even brought the great Sleepy Brown as they performed songs like “SpottieOttieDopalicious” and “SouthernPlayerlisticCadillacFunkyMuzik”. The show was definitely worth the anticipation.
Sunday was a quite relaxing final day of the festival. I saw G-eazy put on one hell of a show a few hours before releasing his latest project. I also saw sets from wild cub, weezer, the lumineers and ziggy marley. I finished off the weekend by watching childish gambino put on a show that made me earn a new respect for him as an artist. After such an incredible weekend I look forward to going back next summer and definitely recommend you all to join me out there.

Being able to accomplish nine mixtapes, and is currently working on his next release that will be titled BETTER THAN GOOD, production credits with Cassidy, Freeway, Fat Joe, Joel Ortiz, Joe Budden and others.

Fresh, DJ Spinderella, Lil Mama, Styles P, Cassidy, Tone Trump, Gillie Da Kid, Meek Mill, DJ Kid Capri, DJ Khaled, Young Jeezy, Joe Budden, D12 and many more. During this interview we go over his eighth mixtape ‘We Aint Hurtin‘, his inspirations, fans, features, and how he feels about his recent move to the Sunny State of Florida.
NIKKISIIXX: If you were to look in the mirror. What would you tell the person in the reflection regarding your current circumstance with your music career.
B2DADOT: I would tell my reflection we have come so far, but there is still more work to be done.
NIKKISIIXX: On your mixtape ‘We Aint Hurtin’ you have two infamous features on it. Rick Ross and French Montana. How was it working with them? Did they give you any advice?
B2DADOT: The thing now with music is that everyone is so busy nowadays and touring and doing shows that it is hard to get in the studio with artist and create. So most of my bigger features get emailed to me.
NIKKISIIXX: What was your inspiration with your track PAIN IN A GLASS featuring Javonna?
B2DADOT: Pain In A Glass is kinda how I deal with life. Whether a long week, stress or whatever I always pour me up a drink (preferably Ciroc). Pain In A Glass was also the first record I ever opened up to my fans about my father committing suicide. It took me almost three years to put that on a record.
NIKKISIIXX: You were born and raised from Wilmington Delaware, and recently moved down to Miami, Florida. Any pros and cons to your relocation?
B2DADOT: Moving to Miami was way better for my career. Anyone who is someone in music, comes through Miami almost on the regular. So it was just a better overall move for me. Plus the weather is great. I think everyone is snowed in back in Delaware. Lol
NIKKISIIXX: You have about 19 Thousand Followers on Twitter? How does that make you feel? & how do you interact with you’re followers?
B2DADOT: It makes me feel great. I love my fans. They are very interactive on twitter. At the end of the day I am still a fan of music. So the things I wish artist did for the fans are things I try to implement with my fans & be as interactive as possible so even though we are miles away they can still feel apart of my day to day.
NIKKISIIXX: Any Last Words?
B2DADOT: Be on the lookout for my debut album entitled “Better Than Good”. Also download my single “She Bad” on itunes right now. Lastly, be on the lookout for my first book entitled “Priorites”.
Dope Tracks off B2DADOT 8th mixtape ‘We Aint Hurtin’ are PAIN IN THE GLASS, KING’S QUEEN, BODY INK, GIVE A FUCK, SHE WANT A BALLER, and SEEN THE GAME. All original content. You can download this mixtape via DATPIFF.
Damo of Philadelphia, PA shows brotherly love on this song as he gets Stevie P of New Orleans, LA and Twyce Nyce of Delaware.This track is true to it’s name of the well known idiom for success stories. Stevie P starts off the track on a high note with mentions of what he listened to on his way up while telling a story about himself and childhood friends.
Damo plays the middle verse with such style and grace while speaking on hand-me-downs, family and avoiding trouble. Twyce Nyce brings an even more intricate manner to his verse as he rides the beat until the song ends. The detail and emotion put into everyone’s verses on this song makes it quite impressive and worthy of a download.
