Standing at a height of 6’6’’ and rapping out of San Diego California, Xavier Osayande, the Nigerian-American better known as “X.O.” is an unsigned hip-hop artist making waves throughout Southern California. X.O. is ushering in a new age of hip-hop that combines witty lyrical content and a smooth, laid-back style. His latest mixtape Check Please Vol. 3 has been critically acclaimed by numerous hiphop blogs and industry critics proving that this 23-year-old is ready to take that next step into superstardom. After winning Warner Bros Music Group’s hip-hop showcase in San Diego, California, X.O has set his sights on bigger things; creating quality and original sounding hiphop music, touring, and growing his fan base across the United States. My influences are Pac, Loso, and Kanye West.
