Introducing XVI

Reginald Benson, 26, known as XVI, born and raised from Bradenton, FL.

What makes you different as a person/artist?

“What makes me different as artist, I do not try to sound like anyone else. I try to keep a concept, within my music while creating a visual for my listeners as well as incorporating my quip personality. My sound is like no other its unique and creative. I believe my sound can set a new tone for Hip-Hop and give listeners a chance to fall back in love with the genre”.

Where do you see yourself in 5 Years?

“I see myself producing, ghost writing, and learning to play instruments — just really being more involved in the music business. I also see myself helping other artists with the struggles; however, I had to face when everything got accomplished.

XVI continues.

“The impact I want to have on the world is, letting the people actually listen to my music with an impact meaning and some kind of common sense — not all this negative nonsense”.
