Our interview with PreauXX

How would you describe your style of music?

LuXXurious. It’s what happens when style clashes with soul and rap music. It’s a feel good feel with a dose of dopeness.

Is there a song of yours that is especially special to you and why?

They’re all special for every reason. I write to give the people who can’t speak to a feeling. So they relate to what I say.

What about Memphis inspires you creatively?

Besides my Unapologetic team, the people, the nightlife, and negative stuff and post it I’ve stuff makes me who is am.

What do you love about the current Memphis music scene? 

I love the diversity and the way people are creating their own wave/ sound.

Inkwell, Beale Street at night, Grizzlies games.

Do you have a story that changed you as an artist, a moment in time that moved the needle for you?

Any conversation with IMAKEMADBEATS moves the needle. That’s my brother.

What is the most unexpected music interest you have?

Country music with a dash of gospel.

Hello! I'm Jalyn Souchek, the Director of Content for I Love Memphis Blog! I love calling the 901 home. When I'm not running the blog you can find me cheering on the Grizzlies, at a concert, exploring a new restaurant or kicking back at one of our breweries. I hope you'll love experiencing Memphis with me.

Build your perfect Memphis meal:

I love to eat so if I were to have only one meal left.. I’m going all out. I’d start with an app of Gumbo Fries from Blue City Cafe or Bayou Fries from Chef Tam, wings from Good Fortune or Central’s (honey gold and Jamaican Jerk), potato salad from Fat Larry’s, side of bbq spaghetti from Bar-B-Q Shop, and fried okra from Soul Fish. All paired with a Beale Street Brewing Space Age Sippin’.

Your most memorable Memphis moment:

College GameDay on Beale Street. That was an electric and perfect morning. I was still working in news then and was able to take it in up close and on the stage at some points. The fun and joy of everyone down there that morning is unbeatable.
