Taking himself from the streets and into the homes and hearts of the south, Trixx has become a household name for over thousands of listeners. Unlike many of the new faces of hip hop Trixx’s makes his name by talking about the streets and how to make a positive life from hardships. Like the icon that he is Trixx has been rapping for over a decade.
Trixx started writing rhymes in 1986, and it was then that he knew he had a message to deliver and that more than any thing else he wanted to make a difference in the world and the music industry. Long before hip hop became the most dominate music on the planet Trixx was in his school rhyming and telling stories of what he pictured the industry as and where he would stand in that industry. Trixx promised his family that he would make a difference. Trixx understood the responsibilities he had placed on his shoulders and focused on finishing school and perusing his career as an entertainer.
After finishing high school, Trixx educated himself on the music world by attending the Art Institute of Dallas for Music and Video Business. This was the first step in an upward spiral of this talented and phenomenal rapper. Texas had not seen a young talent that was as hungry as Trixx. They compared him to the emerging, the enormous forces of the north. Finishing school in 1993 it was time for Trixx to push even harder to make himself known to the world. Trixx performed locally and began to make his name the most common of those regarded as great emcees in Texas second only to ScarFace.
In 1995, Trixx got his break he was signed to Slick Music Records a Texas based indie. Trixx took this opportunity and ran. Trixx coined phrases like “If it don’t pertain to Green…Then it can’t make Cents!” Trixx began to spend hours in the studio, working and learning from the veterans of their staff. He performed in larger venues outside of the Texas area and began to develop a fan base because of his stage presence and freestyle capabilities. Trixx was noted as one of the hungriest young rappers the label has ever seen. Trixx became known as the horse, the linebacker because he was always there. He was an irremovable object, a figure that was in the industry for the long run. Trixx learned lessons that he could not have learned in school being signed to this indie label. He learned things about shopping your music to distributors and to stores and more importantly he learned how important relationships are in the industry. He also learned how quickly things can change.
In 1997, Slick Music Records went defunct leaving Trixx with no label and having to start over, start anew, preparing a new set of singles and recordings. This same year Trixx had to endure the most painful of all loses. In September of 1997, the first lady of Trixx’s life, his mom, passed away. The loss of his mother to cancer devastated Trixx, he felt like he had just lost his world. Trixx’s new responsibility would be to raise his two younger sisters, to help them with there pain, with their lives, and to find direction for his family. The four years to come Trixx dealt with the pain in his heart, the responsibilities of being the most prominent role model and the joys of seeing his sisters grow. Remembering the promises Trixx made his self and his dedication to making a change, Trixx jumped back into the recording booth and in 2001 he renewed his music career with Greentown Records.
Like so many Trixx doubled as office working brother, role model, father and entertainer. Trixx worked harder then ever because he felt like he had so much to lose. Now more seasoned Trixx worked on relationships that would propel him to the next level. By June of 2002, Trixx was in the driver’s seat performing in venues across the Dallas, Houston, Nebraska and Florida. Trixx spent his time on the road with his family in mind and promoting his debut single “Livin Iz Hell”. The road trips established Trixx in the United States as one of the most positive rappers to hit the scene and made several of the biggest magazines in the industry sought Trixx out for comments about his message, what he does and why he performs. During the trips Trixx has had the pleasure to meet and perform along side of hip hop icons like Scarface, Mystikal and others.
Trixx is the lone star of Greentown Records as he was set to release his debut EP titled “Livin Iz Hell”. The public reacted quickly and swiftly as his singles sold over 2,000 copies in the first six months, a great feat for an independent artist. With his numbers growing Trixx began to respond to several radio interviews and commentary about his past. By year end 2003, Trixx had sold more then 5,000 copies of “Livin Iz Hell” and the numbers were still rising. Trixx became a local celebrity and was invited to all of the celebrity concerts and events Texas had to offer.
The New Year brought Trixx even more success as he moved even more units of his EP and in August of 2004 Trixx teamed with Triple F Unlimited a New York City based Entertainment Company known for its success in creating a buzz and getting artist recognition. With the help of TFU, Trixx has begun to capture the north a place many have said is the hardest place to capture. Trixx knows the ups and downs of life, he acknowledges that “Livin Iz Hell” but has dedicated his life to telling the world a story of success that can only mean life is worth living.
In 2005, Trixx would make some of the most astonishing seen in the music industry. In the wake of the biggest natural disasters to hit the United States in history, Trixx would open his doors and his pockets to the victims. First Trixx, would donate the proceeds from his hit EP “Living Iz Hell!” to the relief efforts, then Trixx went back in to the studio and created “Dear George” a heartfelt freestyle that would turn into to a single and be spread across the globe. Trixx would develop a t-shirt which would sell by the thousand and donate the proceeds to the relief efforts around the world. Many entertainers in the business, did similar things but Trixx’s makes a difference all year round and with out selling millions of records or millions of dollars Trixx steps to the plate time and time again to show people that music can make a difference; at least his music does! Lastly, this one of the hardest working entertainers in the business went out in to the shelters volunteered his time, preformed at various venues through out Texas, for free asking promoters to donate his stage fees to the relief efforts. Trixx and Greentown Records, there is only a matter of time before this hero is as big as his heart!
