“XXL” is the first single from Famous Dex and Reggie Mills off of their upcoming DexterReggie EP. The two artists link up for a spaced out banger produced by Da Architectz. The producers take a page out of Kanye West’s “Stronger” and sample of Daft Punk’s “One More Time.” It’s not what to usually expect from the two but they prove that they’re versatile artists.
It’s an interesting concept for a song. While Mills is still an up-and-coming artist, many expected Dex to land on the 2017 XXL Freshmen list. However, XXL’s editor-in-chief told the Breakfast Club that a video of Dex getting into an altercation with his former girlfriend played a factor in his omission from the list. Nonetheless, this song is an indication that he’s still gunning for the 2018 cover.
