Xtortion Tha Don Set To Release Smoke In The City On July 14th


From notable styles and a stunning stage presence, Xtortion Tha Don’s music is standing out as an entity all its own. The quality of art, music, and dedication put forth by the industrious artist has definitely made a mark and impact on the music community. It won’t be long before you hear Xtortion Tha Don’s music nationwide and internationally. Major moves are being made by this amazing talent.

The Gary, IN born and Springfield, IL resident, from a young age, had a love for hip hop noting influences such as N.W.A., Spice 1, and 2Pac. Through his high school years Xtortion was an accomplished freestyle artist with the uncanny ability to freestyle rap lyrics on command. “It was then that I decided that music was something I wanted to get into,” he says. Upon his discharge form the Armed Forces in 2005, he cliqued up with a childhood friend who owned a record label. It was at this time that his stage name was born.

Spending 2005-2008 with U-IN Records, Xtortion became very discouraged with the lack of promotion and preparation for his debut mixtape Product of My Environment Vol. 1 and in 2012 he teamed with local hip hop legend Ozland Banks and the two formed AMG/BlackHood Entertainment. Since forming the label he’s released three mixtapes and his forthcoming album Smoke In The City that’s expected for release on July 14th. The follow up will be an EP titled The Playboy Diaries.
