Blxst is hailed as one of the most prolific rappers to come out of west coast hip-hop’s new era. He is known for writing, producing, mixing his own music, and self-editing his own music videos, and creating his own artwork. The hip-hop jack-of-all-trades taught himself how to produce and record music while he was still in high school. The young rapper’s road to stardom began when he joined a music collective called TIU Muzic, where he honed his music production prowess. Some of his notable works include “Do You Gudda (Remix),” performed by HittaJ3, Kendrick Lamar, YG, and Problem.
In 2015, Blxst founded his record label, Evgle. He released his first single, “Who Would’ve Thought,” through the label in 2016. After his debut, he dropped several more non-album singles before releasing his first breakthrough song, “Hurt,” amassing millions of streams on various online platforms. In 2019, he released his first collaboration EP Sixtape, which includes collaboration singles with Bino Rideaux. His first EP, No Love Lost, was released a year later. The breakthrough record peaked at number 4 on Billboard’s US Heatseekers chart. Moreover, No Love Lost spawned the hit single, “Chosen,” featuring Tyga and Ty Dolla Sign. The EP became Blxst’s landmark release, making him one of the rappers to watch. In 2021, Blxst announced the No Love Lost Tour, and it sold out in ten seconds. In 2022, Blxst released his debut album, Before You Go, entering the Billboard 200 chart at number 90. The album was preceded by singles, “About You” and “Sometimes,” performed with Zacari.
