Xavier Wulf: The Bio
was born on October 24, 1992. He grew up on the East side of Memphis and listened to plenty of hip-hop throughout his early years. He cites Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
, a legendary old skool rap group, as one of his biggest influences.
Now an accomplished rapper with a successful solo career, Xavier Wulf lives in Los Angeles and is part of Seshollowaterboyz, a hip-hop collective, alongside several other rappers. Several of his partners in Seshollowaterboyz – Eddy Baker and Chris Travis – previously worked alongside Wulf during his time in The Raider Klan.
Xavier Wulf has currently released fourteen records, including multiple mixtapes and several full-length LPs, as well as singles and EPs. He has been featured on the work of the likes of Skepta, Lil Peep, and Smokepurpp, and his tracks have racked up over 100 million cumulative streams on Spotify alone.
The Mid-2000s: A One-Off Single and Movie Tie-In for Wulf
Wulf’s first release was “Tokyo Drift,” a collaborative single with Teriyaki Boyz for the third entry in The Fast and the Furious film series. The song became widely known due to its use in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, which helped to make Wulf a sought-after collaborator in the hip-hop scene.
The 2010s: More Activity and Album Releases
After dropping “Tokyo Drift” in 2006, Wulf spent the majority of his time and energy focusing on Raider Klan, his hip-hop collective project. However, he departed from the group in 2013 and went on to release a solo album, Lame. The album’s most successful track is a collaboration with rapper Bones, who became a frequent partner for Wulf throughout his career.
In 2014, Wulf released two more full-length records – Blood Shore Season 1 and 2 – that got him even more positive attention and success. The second in the Blood Shore series includes a collaboration with Chris Travis, but the two albums are otherwise featureless. Wulf has been known to frequently release projects that contain minimal guest appearances, adding to his uniqueness in the context of hip-hop at large.
In 2015, Xavier kicked off his Tundra Boy album series. Another two-part album release, Tundra Boy quickly became one of his most popular sets of records. In addition, the rollout of album after album proved that Wulf was quickly becoming one of the most prolific rappers of the decade. The Tundra Boy albums yielded several successful tracks, including “Tortuga” and “Fort Woe.” Several other album cuts have racked up millions of plays on Spotify in the years since their release.
The 2010s also brought with them the release of Wulf’s most successful track yet – ”Kid Cudi.” The remix of the song, which is named after a fellow rapper, has racked up nearly 30 million plays on Spotify. It’s a pure, simple hip-hop gem with 808s, grooving sub-bass, and a glimmering synth melody line and fans loved the sound.
The 2020s: Three Albums in a Year
2020 was a turbulent year for the music industry and the world at large, but not even a global pandemic could stop Wulf from making music. The rapper released three records during 2020: BRACE, Bennington Forest, and RUDE DOG. All three of these projects were purely collaborative – BRACE is a joint effort between Wulf and Bones, and Bennington Forest is split between Wulf and Idontknowjeffry. RUDE DOG saw the rapper joining forces with Quintin Lamb.
Wulf’s third album of the year, RUDE DOG, features the successful track “TROPHY BOYZ,” which has garnered over a million streams on Spotify.
