Several students have heard the talent of the rapper at our school, sophomore Xavier Hill, known professionally as Swagdollasign. The young rapper has made an appearance at multiple school events, shocking students and faculty alike with his skill.

Hill recently performed at the FHS prom, rapping one of his original songs, ¨No Respect.¨ Hill started making music two and a half years ago, after discovering his natural ability to write songs. Hill said, ¨I was inspired to start making rap music because of my favorite artist, Trippe Red.¨ While Hill is mainly known by the school as a rapper, he does much more than that. ¨I make all types of music, I want to experience what it takes to make all different types of genres,¨ Hill stated. He has started producing pop, as well as indie pop and rap. He wants to discover as many other genres as he can. Hill said, “The Weeknd is what inspired me to start making Indie Pop, and I just thought it would be fun to try it out and see if I was good at it.¨ His music is available on platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Soundcloud.

When it comes to writing his music, Hill said, ¨I normally write my songs at home, going off of how I feel at the moment. I then pour it on a beat and draft it.¨ He has dreams of getting signed to a label one day and eventually creating his own label. His family, specifically his brother, has motivated him to be who he is and pursue his dreams without letting anyone stop him. When it comes to live performances, Hill said he handles the nerves by keeping his glasses on so he has a sense of privacy. However, he said, ¨Once I am in front of the crowd and singing, you know when you have control of the crowd, and the nervousness goes away.¨ Swagdollasign has lots of potential, and it will be interesting to see where his dreams take him.
