Today, rapper, singer, producer, and songwriter Blxst and Evgle inks deal with Red Bull Records. The news follows the release of the LA-inspired music video for his single “My Emotions” and his upbeat summer anthem, “Slip & Slide (feat. 1takejay).” Coinciding with the announcement on Uproxx, Blxst has also released the latest installment of his Evgle Eye video series, showcasing his day-to-day life professionally and personally prior to quarantine.
Garnering acclaim from DJ Akademiks, Elliott Wilson and countless other hip-hop tastemakers, Blxst gained initial notoriety through his work with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, YG, Eric Bellinger, Bino Rideaux, G Perico, Mozzy, and more. A true artist, Blxst leaves no step in the creative process untouched by his vision, frequently crafting his own music videos and artwork in addition to rapping, singing, producing, and songwriting.
“After releasing multiple singles independently,” says Blxst, “I felt it was time to take my platform to a higher level. Red Bull Records was the perfect team to link with because they understood my music mentality. The entire A&R team, [Managing Director] Greg Hammer, and the staff at the label made me feel right at home since day one. I can’t wait for y’all to hear what’s next.”
“Since his first release, Blxst has had a trajectory that’s been incredibly exciting to watch,” says Managing Director, Greg Hammer. “One of the most talented up-and-coming hip-hop artists not just in his hometown of Los Angeles but on a national scale, Blxst brings a fresh sound and creative artistic direction to his music. We at Red Bull Records look forward to working with Blxst on this next phase of his career.”
“Our A&R team continues to push the boundaries in order to sign incredible talent,” says Senior VP of A&R, Kenny Salcido. “Our Director of A&R, Charles ‘CB’ Burks first played us music from Blxst, and we knew not only was he a great artist, but an amazing collaborator and producer. Through his countless musical contributions, he continues to showcase his immense talent.”
