The protégé of Rich The Kid, Famous Dex hopes to attain the same success of his mentor with his forthcoming project Dex Meets Dexter. Once first in line to be a member of the 2017 XXL Freshman, its editor-in-chief Vanessa Satten confirmed that he was dropped once footage of him beating his then-girlfriend surfaced.
He’s now teamed with A$AP Rocky for “Pick It Up.” Speaking to Complex, Dex says about the FKi-produced track, ” When I did that song, I had producers in the studio with me making the beat and I never had that in my life. I kind of knew this song was going to be big because I never had been in the studio with two producers making beats for me, I just always get them from somebody’s email, I just go knock them out. I’m like, “Damn, this is going to be big.” And timing; as I begin to grow, I’ve figured out timing is the key of everything.”
