The title “young prodigy” has been thrown around numerous times, but Miami-native Xplicit might be the most deserving of the designation. Before the age of 17 he released six mixtapes and after a performance at the Calle Ocho block party in March of ‘07, he received a standing ovation from tens of thousands of fans in attendance. Now 19, X is ready to hit up the radio waves with the slow jam, I Want You. The song features former Pretty Ricky front man, Pleasure P, but the collaboration is a gift and a curse. While X gets his moneys worth from the hook, it likely will draw listeners away from the solid verses on either side. So is Xplicit a “young prodigy”? Sure, but he wants to be so much more.
