Xtortion The Don is known as one of the most exciting lyricists to step in the booth. The Indiana native’s rapid fire, punchline heavy style has always translated well no matter the backdrop.

With a style rich in both substance and wordplay X deftly crafts rhymes that will easily stand the test of time. The project is almost a year old and holds it’s own against any new releases.
If wetting the appetite was the plan, Xtortion delivered on all fronts. Clocking in at ten tracks allows for a full listen while still leaving room to digest the next release. Whether taking it light and speaking to the ladies like “Playing Games” with Dre Madison or putting rappers in their place like “BARS”, Xtotion let’s it be known that not only is he here for the long haul but everyone should be eagerly awaiting their chance for an “Eargasm”.
