Up until this point, his primary source of influence in music was rock & roll, which explains his unique sense of taste and style. So do not count on him living up to the lowered expectations of the average American rap "artist". He is far too cultured and intelligent for such things. If you hear him rap about money, it will be about how he has none or what evils he has witnessed it perform.
If you hear him rap about women, it will be about how he does not have one or how the world has oppressed them. If you hear anything about "stainless steel", it will not be about a pistol. It will be about the real stainless steel: a katana blade -- as his verbal swordplay lycially and metaphorically decapitates any ignorant demon disguised as a legitimate emcee who comes attacking integrity with his brainless party anthems and shameless repeating hooks. In the year 2001, after bearing witness to his own lyrical super power through an assigned poetry anthology in the 8th grade, Patrick Xavier dedicated his free time to the pen, making the kind of music that gives hip-hop its good name.
His natural talent in penmanship as a young author provides his lyrics with the depth and solidity of a New York Times bestselling novel. His style is reminiscent of many great emcees and pioneers of hip-hop genius such as the Wu-Tang Clan, Murs, the Roots, MF Doom, a Tribe Called Quest, and even Rage Against the Machine, in addition to many many more. Like literature and philosophy, comic book culture, the exciting world of cinema, and martial arts all play a major role in his extraordinary style. He embraces his inexperience in the rap industry almost as a young Peter Parker learning to climb walls for the very first time: getting better with practice.
Patrick Xavier also brings with him a style of music production that takes sample based beat making to a new level, using source material that would be considered unconventional by all hip-hop standards. Experimenting with themes in the genres of rock, classical, and even country among other things, his style of music production is expanding rapidly in its innovative range, quickly catching up to the level of his lyrical delivery. Having lived in over 18 different locations in the state of Illinois within the last twenty years, Patrick brings a brand new and dangerous image to the rap world. And that's one with no street cred.
His creativity and originality compensate sufficiently, though. He is not a thug, nor a gangster, or a player. Grown men do not play children's games. And children cannot be Heroes.
They can only look up to them. Only a true poet and master of vocabulary can articulate the plight of this generation and that is exactly what Patrick Xavier was born to do, through music as well as other forms of expression and communication. This is just one means to spread the message, whatever you may personally find that to be. He yearns to find his niche in this degredated genre and use his own unique assets and perspective to spread his knowledge. A boy wonder on the mic.
And a dark knight, a demon in battle. Patrick Xavier is many things. Especially one thing, if any.............and that's here to save the day. If you love hip-hop music -- "good hip-hop music" -- spread the word.
We can all be heroes. Save the music, save the world. Villainelle is also the name of a game music remixer. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
