Minneapolis, Minnesota’s EMPIRE X are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry. Ruthlessly tearing boundaries of hip-hop music in the heaviest of ways, Empire X's music has reached people from all over the country from Minnesota to Texas. They have been nominated for Best Live Performance in 2015, by Minnesota Factor Music Awards. Their 17-track mixtape Empire-X takes a more diverse approach to hip-hop whilst maintaining that more original hip-hop/rap feel. Originally Composed of North Mpls Rappers Broderick, Koo Keem, L.A., Macky Dave, And Shaq Daddy.
