Canadian hip-hop artist Dax isn’t letting a little Tory Lanez pull-up keep him down. The hip-hop newcomer has stepped forward to speak on his grind and state of mind.

Last night, Dax went to Instagram to introduce fans to his come-up over the past 12 months and his dedication to the music biz.

My names Dax. A year ago I was an overnight janitor finishing up college. I moved to LA the day after I took this video. During the 33 hour drive from Wichita, Kansas I thought about how I wanted to be perceived by the public as an artist. Yesterday, Dax from a year ago would of been proud. I hope to inspire not only artists but men around the world to make smart decisions not only for yourself but for your family. I hope to inspire people around the world to remain true to who you are and not conform because of this thing we call social media. I hope to spark a generation of dream chasers. I am proud to step up to the frontlines for those who don’t have a voice and add meaning to a generation searching for it. I am exactly who I want to be and that’s why I love this. Lets continue to change the game. What we’re doing has never been done before. #legendary
