With the viral hit of “LMK” on his hands, LIL XXEL stopped through to chop it up with Justin Credible of the L.A. Leakers with DJ Sourmilk, about he track’s success and how much of his life has changed after Tik Tok helped bring the single to popularity.
Joining Justin Credible via a quarantine style interview, XXEL, takes us through his quick journey to finding huge success in the music industry after giving up his earlier talents as a budding baseball player. The 19-year-old singer confessed that he was on the path of heading to the majors as a shortstop but decided to skip out on an important All-Star game to perform in a school talent show. While scouts were looking to recruit the student-athlete, it was his passing to make it in music that drove him to his new career path. As his parents pushed him to attend college, the “MNU” crooner says that he dropped out of college after receiving his financial aid assistance to purchase a home studio set-up.
XXEL goes on to chop it up about his music’s empowering message on self-esteem, how he’s creating his own genre of music with his unique style, and shares details of an upcoming project.
