Dallas artist FXXXXY received some buzz last year with his single "20 Taliband." Now he's back at it with a full EP, a mixture of underground vibes and pop nostalgia called Flawed Up Shawty.
"Flawed Up Shawty is me trying to stay sane and avoid the darkness that this type of recognition swallows people in," FXXXXY told PnP. "It's me trying to cope with losing a relationship with somebody that held me down for so long and shooting shots at everybody who's been sneak dissing as if we don't see them. It's a lot more aggressive and less caring—letting the listener hear my flaws and things that's not attractive."
'Flawed up' is slang for having this strong confidence even though you're not beautiful to the world or maybe looked at as not valuable," he continued. "It's a reaction to whatever situation you find yourself in. It's making ugly beautiful because you have no choice."
