~Hip Hop Recording Artist/Producer~ Currently Unsigned.

HKX (aka Hard-Kore-X) is an independent Hip-Hop artist that was born in Chicago's very own Cook County Hospital on March 8, 1987. He spent his early childhood years in various towns such as Chicago, Joliet, Melrose Park, Maywood & of course Cicero. HKX grew up listening to Run DMC, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, NWA, Sugar Hill Gang, Gangstarr, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eazy E, MC Juice, Twista, Chino XL, Big Pun, Nas, Jay-Z, The Notorious BIG, 2Pac, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Crucial Conflict, Do Or Die, Eminem... the list goes on. His main priority is to compose music that anyone and everyone could relate to and of course move the crowd. He first started rapping when he was 8; he started off by writing how he felt about how he grew up. He felt as if Hip Hop/Rap was his main outlet going through hard times in Cicero, IL. He went on to find out that his cousin's G & K were also rapping as well. Eventually his cousin K bought himself Acid Pro 3 and with a little computer mic they started recording their first songs back in their early teens around 97-99. The 3 of them were always spitting and having cyphers almost every weekend they would chill. He moved to Villa Park in the 6th grade and then quickly moved to Wheaton, IL between the 6th grade. In the 7th grade at Edison Middle School, he met Jeremy Payton and introduced him to some of the rhymes he had written. Jeremy Payton got into the rhyme scene and the two have been collaborating ever since. HKX has dropped two untitled mixtapes with Anonymous & G-Baby back in early 2000. Has collaborated and dropped a mixtape with his good friend Jeremy Payton aka Yung Blaze/Blaze in 2005. He was also featured on Blaze's 1st independent release back when Blaze was signed with ECR Ent; then HKX dropped a solo mixtape in 2005, signed to and featured on Never Kneel Down Records "The Movement: Volume One" (2006). Shortly after the release of the "The Movement: Volume One" he was featured on Power Moves Distribution: Violator All Star DJ's- DJ Showtyme's Fresh Out Da Kitchen Vol. 1 (2007) with a song titled "MY STRUGGLE". He was featured on Get Money Boys aka GMB's (Yung Blaze & PC Da Southboy) Go Hard or Go Home" Vol. 1. Due to a beef between Blaze & PC Da Southboy, Never Kneel Down Records decided to drop HKX including Blaze & Black Trav. Eventually HKX linked up with Kurse (aka Rocky Good) CEO of Anger Manij'ment Entertainment Inc. HKX was featured on both Kurse's "Negative Intention" "Awake At Night” albums. In early 2009 he invested in recording equipment. With the help of his good friend Viral, he learned the art of mixing and how the mixing process worked using Pro Tools. HKX has gone on to release two independent albums titled "BONAFIDE (DA REALNESS)" (2009) and "FEEL DA PAIN" (2010) album cover was designed by RAFAEL ZAVALA. Anger Manij'ment Entertainment Inc. released "The A.M.E. Compilation Album" on July 09, 2010 featuring all the artists from the A.M.E. Inc. label based in Chicago. This album was 2 yrs in the making. He recently dropped an independent collaboration release titled "CHI 2 CALI" on October 6, 2010 with California's very own Loon E Lou. Released under both Anger Manij'ment Entertainment Inc. and Loon E Entertainment label. On December 13, 2010; A.M.E. Inc. released another indie project titled Animosity - The DissTape; which is a compilation album of various diss tracks aimed towards giving it's targeted artists that "little bit of extra shine" that they've been starving for. HKX is currently unsigned and resides in Aurora, IL. He has currently released his latest indie album titled Da Essence on November 25, 2011. He is currently working on his first full-length marketable LP.
