One of the IE’s most cerebral artists Xavier has released the very ill video to his hard hitting track “Hackers”. This visual was shot by extremely talented director Dukevisions as he really brought the song to life. “Hackers” is a reference to Xavier’s African ancestry. In a statement, about the song Xavier said:
Due to the recent surge of African born artists infiltrating the rap game (Sheck Wes, Thutmose, Adé). Xavier, A first generation Nigerian raised in Southern California looks to stake his claim alongside raps newcomers. Recruiting Akon’s eldest son (yes, really) and fellow west African “Wav” for the production. In the digital age with all the technology at our fingertips we’ve all become Hackers, with the intent to finesse the codes of life.
The Top Floor Music emcee made an autotune heavy banger, switching up the style seamlessly, from his past records, then took it to the streets of Korea Town and showed us all how he and his team is living. This song is going to infiltrate your subconscious, and wreak havoc in your mind for weeks to come because of the extremely catchy hook and sticky beat.
