How XXX It was Formed

At first, FRNK was a rapper besides being a DJ. But, rapping was not his daily basis activity. Then, he met Kim Ximya and felt Ximya was the best rapper he had ever met. FRNK asked Kim Ximya to join force then FRNK wanted to solely focus on producing music.

They made a mixtape titled XX. They officially formed a team after Esens signed them to Beast and Natives Alike at the end of 2015.

 



 

What the Name Means

XXX actually does not have any particular meaning. They made their first mixtape titled XX. Then, they signed to BANA and had to have a team name. So, they added another X to their mixtape title then official debut as the recording artists.

Up until now, they feel they do not have to change its name even though maybe people will find it difficult to search because it references to explicit contents. But, Kim Ximya thought that people who listen to their music will know their XXX name, then it did not encourage Ximya and FRNK to change the name. As long as XXX name is not the problem to enter US market, they do not have to change it.

They started wanting to change XXX name after XXXTentacion has become famous. But, because they had made the team name before XXXTentacion became famous, they decided not to change the name.

 

 

Kim Ximya Rapping Style

Kim Ximya delivers his hatred toward rapping. He used many metaphor that hard to be understand while writing for Kyomi album. Kim Ximya wrote about straightforward delivery when writing for Language and Second Language. Kim Ximya feels rapping in Korean is very difficult. The history behind rap comes from the States, so no matter how hard people try, it’s hard to beat how good it sounds when people rap in English.
