ihateyouALX is the definition of a self-made artist, making his mark in the music scene one track at a time. Inspired by an eclectic collection of artists like Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Smino, Little Simz, Saba, Larry June, the late Mac Miller, and many more—his inspirations blend with his originality within his songs. His journey of self-actualization has led to the rupture of musical boundaries with an electrifying new sound that mixes his Latino identity with Jazz-infused Hip-Hop.
Now, the rising star is back with his new single ‘Consequences’ and possibly his best single of the year. This release follows his ’21 offering ‘Loading,’ and it’s an incredible follow-up. On ‘Consequences,’ ihateyouALX takes the foundation he’s built and blazes a new trail.
Speaking on the new single, ihateyouALX shared this:
I found the ‘Consequences’ beat going through a pack Tee-WaTT sent me. This was like, the motherload of beat packs and I remember just seeing the email notification pop up on my phone and me thinking to myself like, “..no way” [laughs.] I saved the ones I liked to my notes, freestyled over them, recorded ideas into voice memos, and would eventually come back to the voice memos I liked the most, ‘Consequences’ was one of those joints. From there, I wrote and recorded everything myself at my home studio.”
ihateyouALX’s music is a form of therapy for him and all those who care to listen. With a robust and smooth voice, he exceeds expectations with ease on ‘Consequences’ as he finally finds his stride. Check out the new single down below.
