X.M. use to sing in church and school choir until he grew older and his voice changed then he switched to rapping because he didn’t know how to control his "new" voice pitch. Singing now, he can sing almost as good J. Holiday, Trey Songz, and Mario. He's the last male in his household to graduate high school and work towards college. Having a very "old" new style of hip-hop, he rap about everything he's been through, seen and heard, from when he died at birth and came back to life to seeing his fellow Chicagoan, President Obama take office. He's a mix of Snoop Dogg’s swag, Jay-Z’s business mind, Kanye West’s attitude, T.I.’s style, Swizz Beatz’s energy, Juelz Santana’s hustle, Jim Jones’s delivery, and Lupe Fiasco’s ambitions put together. X.M. is the opposite of what they all went through; Snoop hustled drugs and X.M. hustled the hustlers’ hustle, Lupe went days without eating and he went weeks, Hov sold coke and X.M. sold candy(meaning twix, skittles, starburst, etc). He rarely curse when he's rapping depending on the beat and how he feel that day. Started his own label Royal World Entertainment, showed people that though he promoted for five years X.M. CAN REALLY RAP!
