Following up the premiere of the explosive single “Prozac” on HipHopDX, LA Rapper Charles X is now releasing a new video for the track. The video has a slice-of-life vibe with subtle but dynamic animations acting as stingers on X’s energetic personality. He explains, “‘Prozac’ is to show my animal side. Sometimes people mistake me as a punk because I smile or think I’m famous because of my press. This song let’s me show a piece of who I really am… or could be. I love to sing but sometimes you just want to give a lot of energy only channeled through rap.”
Charles X has also announced the release date for his new full length record, EID2, coming out March 1, 2019. EID2 sees Charles X at the top of his game with eight tracks that dive into the performer’s ruminations and world views.
Cheekily and jokingly referring to himself as a “bad guitar and bad piano” player, Charles X has spent the last three years igniting on the international stage, releasing three full-length albums, Revolution and the Day After (2015), Sounds of the Yesteryear (2016), and Peace (2017), and writing more material for release in 2019. “Prozac” runs a pounding beat into the frenetic flow and feverish tempo of X’s lyrics, making a stampeding entrance for the first single off EID2.
Known for his dynamic showmanship and smooth soulful style, the Los Angeles native has furthered his international notoriety with a fourth European/Indian Ocean tour (New Morningin Paris – sold out, Palaxa in La Reunion, Rocher de Palmer in Bordeaux, Homecoming Eventsin Johannesburg, Mauritius, O2 Forum in London..etc) and is now ready to make his footprint in the world by captivating his crowd and always leaving them wanting more.
Charles X has mastered a massive spectrum of the genre with songs like the warm, soul-inspired “Can You Do It” and the volatile, but commanding “Soul Power”. Boasting a vibrant display of neon-noir 80’s pizza vibes, Charles X also released the smoke-filled video for his single “BLOWN” via Rap Nation appropriately on 4.20 this year:
Influenced by Motown, Prince and The Roots, Charles X’s music blends pop, hip hop, jazz, soul, and rock, cleverly adopting genres with continuous creativity. His writing alternates sharp phrasing and luminous melodic arrangements, creating music that is concise and effective, garnering over 2 million streams across his catalog on Spotify.
