Dax is a Canadian rapper currently based in Wichita, US and could with no second thought be clubbed as more of a poet enriching the musical scene with his intriguing lyrics. Initially drawing his roots from pursuing a career as a basketball player, the start of the heavily fuelled and highly energised madness would start on a bus ride with his team in 2016 when he penned down a poem of his own. Later realising about his way with words, he would slowly step into the rap game, pulling influences from legends of the vibrant and the highly competitive genre that his hip-hop.
Soon releasing numerous singles and EP's to great critical acclaim, Dax would come out with his LP and all of these persistent releases would result to him catapulting into fame and great appreciation with a hunger to create still remaining intact.
"With corruption, fabrication of truth and the overall issues with the social system, Dax effectively paints the society we live in as a dystopian one where we capitalise on the gossips of these severe problems."
His new single 'God's Eyes' is sort of a wake-up call against the current state of the world. Dax capitalises on his strength and lyrical acumen by painting a picture in the listener's head to great effect. The beat produced by Lex Nour is unapologetically snappy and simple in taste, providing great leverage for Dax's vocals to shine through the trappy atmosphere. There can be numerous attributes about Dax's lyrical game that can be appreciated in this track, and along with this, we can hover over some reasons why they are really effective to begin with.
It so happens that most people go about their lives without ever knowing their deformities, while in this little world of ours deformities come as a precondition. Dax says, "I've never seen god's eyes, but I've seen the devils's". Continuing this line with "He walks with men on Earth at different levels."
This illustrates that Dax realises this fact and it can be said that just as the sporting teams wear different jerseys to show which side they belong to, we as humans wear our deformities in the same manner.
This in turn expands to these deformities forming an entire society, where there are problems which can be seen left and right. With corruption, fabrication of truth and the overall issues with the social system, Dax paints the society we live in as a dystopian one where we capitalise on the gossips of these very serious problems. The track ends on a note of appreciating God as the great artist he is, that despite all these problems bestowed upon us, we never lose faith and submit to the problems as the intelligent have been shut down upon countless times. This way of polemicizing faith makes the listener think on a deeper level and as the great thinkers say, the purpose of philosophy is not to have good news to tell you, but rather to make you understand what deep problems we're facing at this moment.
