Canadian rapper Dax drew a huge following posting inventive videos for his original songs, freestyles, and remixes of other artist's tracks. Bold visuals complimented Dax's skills at both hyperspeed technical rapping and slower-paced lyrical delivery, and within a few years he'd amassed millions of followers. After several years of independently releasing his music, Dax signed on with Living Legends Entertainment, which put out projects like his 2020 EP I'll Say It for You.

Dax was born Daniel Nwosu, Jr. in Ottawa in 1994. Throughout high school and college, Dax was a basketball player, and he worked part-time as a janitor while attending college in Wichita, Kansas. He transitioned from sports to poetry and motivational speaking and eventually to music, beginning to upload videos online around 2016. In addition to releasing videos in which he flowed over instrumentals from other artist's hits, Dax also released original songs, breaking through with his 2017 track "Cash Me Outside." 

As time went on, Dax's style grew more personal as it got more complex. His delivery got faster and more accurate, and he often referenced his days as a janitor or got into the intimate details of struggles with depression and betrayal. His 2018 EP It's Different Now featured guest appearances from Futuristic and O.T. Genasis. He continued releasing stand-alone tracks and videos as his fan base grew, and a second EP, I'll Say It For You, arrived in 2020. Now working with Living Legends Entertainment, Dax's videos were regularly streaming millions of times. In late 2020, he shared a new version of his earlier track "i don't want another sorry" with a newly added hook from Trippie Redd. A few weeks later, in January 2021, he released a remix of Eminem's "Rap God" with new lyrics of his own, and the video surpassed two million views in less than a month.

One of his latest tracks "dear alcohol" has over 30 million views and has since been remixed with American singer-songwriter Elle King.
