Artist of the day: DJ Xfactor



Mixtape magician DJ Xfactor is a busy man. He runs the hip-hop news and gossip blog, and his most recent project is a mixtape, The Problem Child, with Tom G.

After hearing Tom G.'s single Problems on the radio, Xfactor called him up and asked about working together. "And now we have what might be the mixtape of the year in Tampa," he says.

He says the name Xfactor came from his high school days, when he was known for making quality mixtapes. He still does, in fact.

"I chose to be a mixtape DJ because a lot of the music that I wanted to hear can't be on the radio," he said, "but with the help of mixtape DJs like myself, we can give the hip-hop fans a chance to hear all of the underground artists that don't get the chance to get their music in clubs and on the radio."
