Born in Portland, Oregon but raised in Florida, rising rapper Xilla is here with his new single titled “Sad Face”. The newcomer is no stranger to music, previously apart of a group but decided to pursue his solo career; the best decision he could’ve made. Now making his debut, he kicks things off with a video for his leading single “Sad Face” from his introduction album, project eX.

The Dirtybirdfilms directed music video captures Xilla fishing for money and ignoring any/all distractions around him, including his lady. He falls so in love with his hustle that it overpowers him and she becomes very frustrated.

The self-empowering album guides listeners through upbeat, super-melodic songs over hard 808s and trap elements: with production from the likes of CormillBlaztois, 30Hertz, and Xi.

 “It’s about empowering someone who knows they don’t deserve the way they are being treated or judged but finds it nearly impossible to leave.” – Xilla
