Detroit's whiterosemoxie (Moxie) may have recently graduated from high school, that doesn't mean that he hasn't been working on his craft for years. The 19-year old's music career is beginning to take form, as the young artist is receiving millions of streams across music platforms. What's attracting listeners to the fledgling artist is his distinctive and innovative sound.
Moxie began his music journey at the age of eight years old. After suffering an asthma attack, he was in a coma for several days. When he awoke from the coma, he had an urge to create music, stating that he never really had an interest until then, and nothing was going to stop him. Since then, Moxie has been practicing rhymes and developing his career and is now beginning to reap the benefits of his work that started nearly a decade ago.
In April, Moxie released "ITACHI," a synth-heavy and energetic track that features Indiana's midwxst, a fellow emerging artist. The song features a future bass-inspired chord progression that serves as the melody behind the track's production. The song also contains a heavy 808 bassline, which protrudes in the front of the mix assertively and brings energy to the listener. One feature that stands out in this song is Moxie's catchy lyricism. Moxie shows off his confidence and personal dilemmas within the song's first lines, something that some listeners are connecting with.
"Smoking on that gas, eyes red like Itachi
I can run it up, give a f*ck who gon' stop me?
I could run it up, but my demons still haunt me."
