Khxos (previously Khaos) is one of the more versatile new Artists to surface onto the scene. A Songwriter who fuses Reggae and Dancehall with a hint of R&B and Pop mixed with a unique voice, Khxos’ vocals alternate between rugged boasts and smooth tones with such lyrical and melodious prowess not seen from the average Reggae Artist. Khxos has made strides in 2016 towards mainstream with his debut EP, “Deception”, guest appearances, and a slew of videos by Videographer, Sean Alaric.
Khxos spent parts of his early life in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica where he learned to love music from his family and surroundings before moving to the States in his teenage years. Although he is regarded as a new artist, Khxos has been underground for the last 4 years creating a fan base from Jamaica, the United States, UK, and Canada to name a few. He has made some of his biggest strides in 2016 with the “One Dance (Remix)” that featured Recording Artist/Comedian Andrew Trabass which amassed over 3 million views on YouTube. Earlier that year, Khxos released the “Deception” EP which was produced by Class One Music and featured Khxos’ single “One Touch” which spread like wildfire throughout the mainstream airwaves last year.

This Summer’s heat wasn’t enough for Recording Artist Khxos as he turned on every stove, fireplace, and broke the Thermostat on “Advertising The Truth“. Borrowing the Instrumental to American Hip Hop Duo BlackStar’s “Respiration“, Khxos fires off on how the truth is not respected nowadays, making dumb people famous, false promises, never letting anyone take his dreams, and dropping more knowledge in his music. Not even a Deep Freezer can keep this on chill right now. “So much on my mind that I can’t recline“. Expect more Khxos music very soon but for now, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
