Atlanta rapper Hunxho sweetens his heavy lyrics of street struggles with smooth instrumentals and Auto-Tuned melodies. He went quickly from self-releasing mixtapes to collaborating with big-name artists, with 21 Savage and NoCap making appearances on his 300 Entertainment-released 2022 album Street Poetry and 2023's 22.

Born in Greensboro, North Carolina, Hunxho played basketball in high school before relocating to Colorado for college and eventually landing in Atlanta to work on a rap career. His first songs started materializing around 2017, and he quickly began releasing music in the form of projects like 2018 mixtape True Story and 2020 album Street Poet. Hunxho signed on with 300 Entertainment for his 2022 LP Street Poetry after his 2021 track "Let's Get It" garnered enough buzz to merit a 21 Savage remix. Just months after the album came out, Hunxho followed it with the 2022 EP XHOSEN.

In April 2023, he delivered the full-length 22, named in part by the where he first lived in Atlanta (2200 2nd Ave) and the fact that he was 22 years old when he signed his recording contract. Included on the album was the track "Uh Huh" featuring Grizzley.

Hunxho shared the stage with Lil Baby, GloRilla, Gloss Up, and Rylo Rodriguez at the Moody Center. They continue across the United States with the last stop at the FLA Live Arena in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on September 22, 2023.
