Stop searching and look no futher! Born a Cancer desendent Andre Martin in Cherry Point, NC -- carries a balance of smoothness and toughness. At 15 years old he began writing raps. In high school, due to corrective vision he took on the name “Cyclops” as part of a four-man rap group called the Tank Riders. Although earlier efforts didn't shoot him out of the gate he continued to pursue his passion. For better or for worse, WIX 360 also housed a good deal of controversy during his attempts to build a solid fan base.
Far more ink was spent on his legal issues and conflicts with other local rappers. Adopting the name Wicked Wix while incarcerated in 2004, even more trouble followed. After serving a 2 year prison term, Wix dropped the fore part of his name and incorporated 360 as his latter part in 2008. According to WIX 360, Tamika Anthony, Solo Black, Tony Staccz, Cool Breeze, Maceo, Yolla Christ, Yung Streetz, and DJ Scream were all his inspirations. Fresh out of prison, Tamika Anthony (Pushin It Ent.- C.E.O.) booked WIX 360 his first showcase at Ocean 66 in College Park, GA hosted by Hot Block Magazine to get a taste of Performing live before a crowd.
After a much needed self-evaluation of his lifestyle and priorities, Wix decided to take a moment and back away from running the streets to record and restructure strategy for success. His revision landed him opening acts for, Travis Porter, Maceo, Jody Breeze, Waka Flaka, McBreezy, DJ Unc and even Roscoe Dash before his national success. It only make sense since his many musical influences includes 2Pac, OutKast, Pimp C, Bun B, Lil Jon, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Lil Boosie, Shawty Lo, Jay-Z, T.I., Future, Will I Am, Ricky Rosay and Lil Scrappy. That’s enough to make one wonder, “What will WIX 360 come with next?” His versatile flow, college boy swag, passion for creating music, and natural ability to network with others has WIX 360 aiming for the major league.
