Dubane’s finest, MX bares his heart on his latest EP, “Wasted Potential”
After a 2-year hiatus from music, MX is back with the first volume of his Wasted Potential EP. This EP is by far MXs most honest and most personal release yet. The 4 track EP is a candid display of MX’s lyrical prowess but also his ability to be able to tell his story and make the listener care about it in less than 20 minutes.
Having worked with artists such as Aewon Wolf, Nasty C and the late Inseezy on past projects, Wasted Potential Volume 1 is a solo journey without features, it’s the truest expression of MX’s unique style.
The first track, Retweet This is an expression of his immense appreciation for his fans. He raps about the cities and hoods that showed him support since dropping his first body of work, I AM X. On Ungqo, MX waxes lyrical about being the real deal and how honestly, nobody is doing it like him at the moment. Shining a light on his unique cadence and ability to be playful on this mid-tempo sing along song.
Shouldn’t Change is a reflection on MX’s experiences within the music industry and being a creative in South Africa, He speaks about cutting through the noise and focusing on becoming the best version of yourself. And on Bout That, he packs truthful bars about his hustle.
He worked with South African Fine/Street Artist Sphephelo Mnguni to create the Ep cover which is a painting on canvas.
MX will be producing videos for two of the four tracks Ungqo and Retweet This. While anticipating the release of the videos and Wasted Potential Volume 2 in June, you can stream Wasted Potential off his website and all major digital stores.
