"NEW ALBUM: "All By Myself" by ThiNXx"

Hip-hop emcee and artist ThiNXx may have self-produced his new release, appropriately titled “All By Myself,” but he’s a team player. Having collaborated with dozens of others in the business, ThiNXx appears on international compilations of hip-hop spearheaded by Issuez7 as well as “Scarecrow Tactics,” an EP produced by the Canadian Waatu Music and Bassist Shep on Bass of the UK. He also runs, a grassroots effort by artists to promote social justice and bring about meaningful change through the platform hip-hop provides.

Originally from Johannesburg and now signed with Arcadia Records, ThiNXx practices what he preaches and infuses his music with rich, contemplative lyrics one doesn’t normally hear in this genre. “All By Myself” contains lyrics such as “Tryin’ to build myself a house / With just a hammer and some nails / Would you chop the wood for someone else / And would you help them if you could / Guess I’m so misunderstood / That I just can’t see the good” (Punch in the Facebook). In “Yesterday,” ThiNXx pays tribute to a lost friend and expresses gratitude for the relationship they had, saying “Thanks for shaking my hand that day / Thanks for your introduction / Thank you very much for being my friend / Thanks for the time that you stayed.”

“NO News; GOOD News” is the pinnacle of the album’s funk-inspired beats and sanguine message. Some of the instrumental tracks border on chaotic, but the steady, streamlined sound, smattering of strings, and lines like “Right all the wrongs your life before you’re gone / Live life with no regrets / Make sure everything is done” encapsulate what this album is all about: living a meaningful life, and sounding damn good doing it. - KO Music Promotion & Management

"New Music: ThiNXx- Excuse ME (Demo)"

There is a new demo from one my absolute favorite underground hip hop artists, ThiNXx. ThiNXx is an independent hip hop artist from Johannesburg, South Africa. He spits stories and ideas with lyricism that is nearly unmatched in all of hip hop.

Not only does he run, he is also a graffiti artist and signed to the Michigan based collaborative, Arcadiac Records. He has also gotten recognition from major sources and even Strange Famous Records.

What ThiNXx has to say about this track:

“I finished writing this while travelling through the Karroo(EC) around 3 hours before the SA President finally addressed parliament and stated categorically that he would not “pay back the money”. I mean why would he; it’s only more money than most people see in their entire lives and it’s not like South Africans need housing or hospitals at all… right? Not to mentions it’s only Tax money and he needed to upgrade his house, so why not? I hope you sensed my sarcasm there as well as the manner in which the president is always able to find the humor in everything he is supposed to care about. This is a protest song and I ask that you share it far and wide in the hope that citizens of South Africa do eventually get a say in their county and can proudly say that their taxes are funding more than just the prevalent corruption that runs rife through the veins of our political system. I know this is not a problem unique to SA but it is where I’m from and I feel it’s extremely important we can the message across, unite and conquer these horrifying evils that occur daily”.

"New Music: ThiNXx- Excuse ME"

South African hip hop extraordinaire, member of Arcadiac Records and the mastermind behind, ThiNXx, is back with his first new track and video since loosing his voice several months ago. While he is still unable to record new music, he felt this track had to get out. “Excuse Me” was released as a demo late last year, but has since been completed and readied for release.

This is a song of political protest and a song about corruption. Making note and emphasizing the importance of having a voice and demanding that the government take responsibility for their actions. The political corruption in South Africa is rampant and the people are suffering. Help spread this message far and wide, this is not just a South African problem, many of us can relate to these views, but it is very important.
