Recognized for his insightful lyrics and throwback flow, FenaxiZ captures vivid snapshots of Toronto life through a lens of raw sincerity.

His third album, 2012’s “Vintage,” featured the Filipino-Canadian rapper at his finest. Over the course of 13 soul-infused boom-bap tracks, FenaxiZ guided fans down memory lane on the nostalgic “Golden Age,” then past national borders for a lesson on Philippine history with “White Man’s Burden,” before turning inward for the alcohol-influenced “Empty Bottle.” Along with the buttery love letter, “Queen” featuring August Rigo, and the anthemic posse cut “Go For Broke” featuring Alex Dimez and Wylie, these songs made heads take note of “Vintage,” resulting in coverage on over 100 web sites to date.

FenaxiZ, however, is not new to the game. Since debuting in 2004 with “The Audiobiography” and releasing “The Strongest Link” in 2006, he has consistently delivered his gravel-voiced street poetry to a core audience that lives, breathes, and believes in his brand of Hip-Hop.

While known as a solo artist, FenaxiZ was a founding member of the now-defunct Toronto collective Team US!, which included Alex Dimez, Arch Duke, Taylor Made, Nyce Touch, Wylie, and King Jus. He has also appeared on more than 20 projects and worked with the likes of Scott Ramirez, MC Fubb, Set2, and The Third World Council.

Currently, FenaxiZ is recording a full-length album slated for 2016 called “Chain City” with frequent collaborator and long-time high school friend royceBIRTH. Their first single, “Ah Yeah,” was recently released on the M.I.C Series Volume 7 mixtape.
