Check out the headliner: a young rapper who goes by the name of Young 6ixx. Young 6ixx (real name Danny Johnson) will defy your perception of young rappers. He relates in an interview that growing up in the West Coast of the States was a lot like what you see on TV and movies. Gangs ruled the streets and violence was rampant but he adds, “there are kids who don’t go down that route, and those are the guys I’m trying to represent [with my music].”

His dad was part of a gang, and 6ixx himself spent years in the Armed Forces; so you won’t find references of drive-by shootings or any ass-kicking in his songs. But rest assured, the love for the ladies still remains—just check out the video to his song “Devil In A Dress”! Based in Germany, 6ixx admits that his relocation has to do with differentiating himself from the typical rapper. His appearance for Hennessy Artistry marks his first in our fair nation—although, we were amused to discover on his MySpace that we were named Maylaysia and Kula Lumpar! Spellcheck maladies aside, we’re still pretty excited to catch what this self-admitted shy guy has to offer.

Inspiration works in mysterious and unpredictable ways. Young 6ixx, a former enlisted man turned rising emcee out of Riverside, California, had never even considered pursuing hip hop until he found his calling while stationed overseas in Germany a few years ago. Now boasting a sizeable European following, the 23-year-old is ready to bring his craft to the states. With his charismatic, exhaustingly unintelligible delivery (think Fat Lip from the Pharcyde), he is sure to turn a head or two. His new single, My Music, showcases his unique vocal approach in three 16-bar verses about, well, his music. He is aided by producer Michael “M.I.C” Lewis, whose sample-filled beat always keeps you guessing with its varied percussion. Check out more 6ixx on his upcoming mixtape, First Impression of a Legend.
