On the verge of becoming a social firestorm, we sit down with the star on the rise to get familiar with who he is, where he’s from, what he’s about and what he has in store.
[AAHH]: What was it like growing up where you are from?
[Lil X]: It was fine, I got to do what I wanted. El Paso is right on the border of Mexico so there is lots of tradition and mixed culture.

Yes my family has been supportive and I know they are trying to understand what I’m doing and one day fully learns what I’m creating and what I’m making.
If you had to choose one record for someone to listen to from you, what would it be?
Greatness, its uplifting and gives off a different feel. I personally say most people would enjoy this song.

It was mostly my debut project but im going to be releasing more music soon.
