PreauXX (pronounced “pro”) has been quickly ascending in the ranks of the next generation of hip hop artists to look out for. Born in New Orleans, LA and raised in Memphis, PreauXX’s charming charisma and aggressive wordplay gained him a local notoriety that exploded after enrolling in the University of Memphis in 2008.
With a positive message aimed at inspiring listeners to seek the most out of life, PreauXX’s music began opening doors at a rapid pace at the university. After teaming with producers Alexander Odell and IMAKEMADBEATS and releasing two mixtapes (2010’s To Kill A Mockingbird and 2011’s Love Jones), PreauXX dropped out of college to pursue his career in music. After forming the creative coalition TRDON with Odell, his Mockingbird Mondays EP was prominently featured on blogs KevinNottingham, Grammy.com, and iLLMaterial, as well as publications Commercial Appeal and Memphis Flyer.
In 2013, PreauXX expanded his reach onto a national level, wowing fans at the A3C and SXSW festivals all while building the TRDON name into a Memphis staple with guerrilla marketing/branding and city-wide parties, including the Cooper Young Festival where he performed for a 10,000+ audience.
2014 is already starting strong, with PreauXX and his team securing a dual deal with Great South Bay Music Group to release his Die Winning EP with digital distribution through E1 Records.
