- Celebrxtion MXOM 3:08
MXOM has released his new single titled ‘Celebrxtion’. A slow burn based around The Godfather theme with a slick trap beat underscored, MXOM is an homage to those bomb-trackers of the past, MXOM runs out of the gate with the hunger of a new artist and the conviction of a musical giant by turning that next level into a smooth ramp going all the way to the top.
Based in the heart of Croydon, MXOM meteoric rise has seen his songs getting radio play from Australia to Shanghai to Canada all before the release of his first single, earning him the victory lap of his single Celebrxtion.
Underscored by a Godfather theme sample with contemporary trap beats, MXOM channels a sense of class – celebrating the genre’s legends while becoming one in his own right. Infectiously inspired wordplay shifts between sleek vocal rhythms and chest-thumping repetition that acknowledges the rapper’s past while unapologetically screaming to the world an air of well-earned pride.
Having grown up in the streets of Croydon MXOM or Ugo Nelson had to overcome adversity that came with the territory. He faced run-ins with the law and decided that he had too much potential to head down a path he may regret. Choosing to venture to the sunny sidewalks of Silicon Valley was quite the change for him. He started a tech company utilising his long-term interest and skill in coding; although he excelled in the area, he felt unfulfilled. He came back to his hometown to pursue entertainment, a testament to his core creative mindset. Never one to do things by half he trained in a prestigious drama school that has been a key asset that makes his standout from the pack.
Never one to shy away from a challenge he was influenced by the London hip hop genre and his influences. Merging a trap style with a UK based grittiness and a fresh perspective for the scene. He takes a lot of inspiration from the early work of Kanye West, someone he has always admired, the new track features a distinct production style utilising autotune. Other similar artists include M Huncho and Yxng Bane.
He has always valued his own work ethic that has led him to achieve so much in his early career across his multitude of ventures. He continues to do so with his new series of one-minute freestyles (#1MF). Where he releases a freestyle video every week to display his skill and match those he looks up to. He will not stop until he achieves his goals.
