Los Angeles-based rapper and emcee Wax is anything but ordinary. The multi-instrumentalist, podcaster and YouTube extraordinaire first rose to fame after fronting the band MacGregor in 2000. Five years later, he left the band and he and his brother, Herbal T, began uploading YouTube videos showcasing the young rapper's talent and humor. Wax then went on to land a spot on the video-sharing channel's Top 100 Musician list and has since hit his stride with numerous EPs, mixtapes, collaborations and albums. Wax's fusion of reggae and indie hip-hop has led to the success of albums such as 2008's Liquid Courage, 2015's Livin' Foul and most recently, The Cookout Chronicles.
