[Exclusive] Outside Connet w/ XO

Jamal Anthony Walton (known as XO), an uptown DC native, 1/3 of the Diamond District, part of Studio 43 Family and a solo artist, has been making serious noise in the District (that’s Washington, DC if you live under a rock). He has earned his success in what outsiders may call the “underground music” scene in DMV hip hop. He came into the music armed with a musical background including influences from various musicians, as well as his parents who were a part of the Howard University marching band.

I grew up in an era where people really took pride in music and that instilled in me a great appreciation for music.” He has only been in music for the past five years, but his music is known far beyond the metropolitan area of DC. XO has been consistently hitting the DMV with some of tightest bars in the game. In 2009 XO teamed up with fellow rappers Oddisee and Y.U. which forms “Diamond District” and released the pre-Grammy nominated Best Hip Hop Album “In the Ruff”. His fellow rap mates also helped him with his solo efforts.

XO has a track history of making good music. His music can be best described as fusion of soulfulness and grittiness. Through his lyrics you can get a visual of what life is like coming up in the DMV. With so many back to back projects (see discography below), XO created a buzz that floated beyond DC’s streets. Last year he flooded the internet with his classic single “All I Had”, accompanying it with a well-received animated video and the Monumental mixtape, received over 60K downloads. Following this he dropped One One Ten and the Diamond District’s In the Ruff.
