Famous Dex’s music career skyrocketed after the release of his “Drip From My Walk” music video.
Dex didn’t stop there. He continued to crank out more hits, including “2 Times” and “Do It Like That.”
It appeared Dexter would be a definite pick for 2017 XXL Freshman. But Dexter was denied from the cover for being involved in a domestic dispute with his girlfriend in September 2016.
XXL Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten spoke on Dexter’s exclusion from the list during a sit-down interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club.
“We argued a lot over the Famous Dex situation,” she said. “There are a lot of political issues there. I’m not really sure so much how long it’ll take to clear up before you get to the next level. …There’s a hurdle to get over there and I don’t know if right now it’s gonna happen.”
Statten went onto say Dexter’s situation is different from XXXTentacion because the assault of his girlfriend was caught on camera.
X was jailed for beating up his pregnant girlfriend.
“I think the thing with X is the people’s champ and he hasn’t been found guilty of anything so you gotta let that play out, and that’s who the people wanted,” she said. “… No matter we‘ve never really kinda been in the situation we had to deal with political issues like this caught on camera. It’s kinda the first time. I definitely think Dex is a good rapper. For us it’s trying to predict the future on who’s going to blow up. I think that’s going to be a challenge for him.”
Dex suffered greatly for last year’s mistake having lost his endorsement deal with Pink Dolphin.
Famous Dex and his girlfriend recently welcomed a son into the world last week. The “Dex Meets Dexter” rapper spoke on the issues he had with his baby mama after his child’s birth.
“She been here on my side,” Dex said. “We’ve been through ups an downs. We stick around each other. Them real relationships know how it feel.”
Dex said the birth of his child has inspired him to become a better person.
“It’s time to think big. It’s no more about me,” Dexter said. “If y’all think I changed, blame it on the little man. If y’all think I became a lame, blame it on the little man. It’s time to become fathers. It’s time to do what the f**k I gotta do for my son. My son and my daughters.”
