Newport Shorts is nothing like your average Rap Hip Hop track, it may appear so as you hit play and the Rap verses carry you through to the chorus, but that’s where the sickeningly talented rapper treats you to a sweet taste of vocal harmony wrapped around lyrics which melt into the subtle down-tempo trap mix.
WX takes inspiration from rappers such as Drake, Machine Gun Kelly, G Eazy & MGK to create his sound which translates into his first ever anthemic hit which truly stands in a league of its own. Newport Shorts is a track that moves at a furiously subtle pace which hits you like a tonne of bricks every time you listen to the heart wrenching rendition. The romantically venomous lyrics sting you every time you listen to this track, It’s clear that US based Rapper Wx didn’t hold back when writing and orchestrating his debut. It’s almost impossible to believe that this is the first track the artist has put out there on the soundwaves, it’s absolute perfection.
