G.O.O.D. Music Signee HXLT Drops Debut Album
With Yeezy Season in full swing, Chicago artist and new G.O.O.D. Music signee HXLT is gearing up to release his debut self-titled album in just a few days. As an added bonus though, the singer has made the album available today via his Soundcloud page, three days before the Feb. 26 release date.
The mostly self-produced album features previously released tracks like "Together" with Kathleen Hanna and "Sick" for which HXLT provided a video last month. Additionally on the album are cuts like "Live to Death" and the Mano-produced "Guitar."
In a January interview with XXL, HXLT said of his music, "I am not going to sound like anyone, I’m not going to be like anyone and that’s real. There’s only one me. I’ve tried to go, 'Maybe I’m like this or like that,' but you will never meet someone like me, I promise you. That’s really a fact. So, I’m going to be the next non-arrogant phenomenon."
G.O.O.D. Music has been making plenty of waves in the new year by signing Brooklyn rapper Desiigner following his contributions to Kanye West's The Life of Pablo. In a late December interview with Shade 45, newly anointed G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T said of the label's release schedule, "The first two projects, we’re looking at mine and Sean’s. I got another album entitled King Push that’s coming out in April." Add HXLT's release to the mix and the G.O.O.D. family is looking to make a major statement in 2016. Stream HXLT's album above.
