About Dax (His Biography)
He was born on March 22, 1994, in St. John, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada. His parents are Nigerian immigrants of Igbo descent. As a child, he was not interested in rap, but sports and aspired to be a basketball player. During his early teenage years, he was relatively popular attributed to his stunning looks and involvement in athletics, which gained him a college scholarship.
He began his college career at the University of Montana before switching to Newman University, where he played defence for the Newman Jets national basketball association. Before pursuing a rap career, he authored poems and was a motivational speaker. In his years at Newman University, he worked as a janitor, which he maintained was indeed a profession he enjoyed since it allowed him to focus on his rap career in his spare time.
DAX hasn’t spoken much about his family since he wants to keep them out of the spotlight – he hasn’t acknowledged having any siblings, which leads most people to think he is an only child. Seeking to become the next big rapper, he gave himself the pseudonym Dax and would entertain his neighbours with free-form rap tracks.
He was just a decent college basketball player before actually finding his interest in music and poetry. Dax’s musical career began when he was 19 years, releasing his debut song, “Plan B.” The rapper moved to Los Angeles in 2017 to develop his musical career. He began creating YouTube videos that garnered millions of views. His track “She Cheated Again” has been a great success to date, catapulting his career as an independent hip-hop artist. He successfully finished his first 20-city concert tour, “It’s Different Now”.
Dax gained popularity after releasing the music video for his track “Cash Me Outside,” which starred Danielle Bregoli. His most successful tracks include “I Want,” “YourWorthIt.org,” and “She Cheated Again,” which is a follow-up to the “Look at Me” remix. Hopsin’s 2019 single “You should’ve Known” features him. On Mother’s Day, Dax posted a video titled “Dear Mom” to YouTube in honour of his mother.
Dax has worked with Tom MacDonald, Hopsin, Futuristic, O.T. Genasis, and other prominent YouTube rappers. Dax announced his new album in August 2021 and released “Propaganda,” featuring Tom Macdonald, as the album’s opening track.
