#STYLEMusicMonday: Pragmaddix

Hip hop group Pragmaddix consists of MC’s Qwyk Cardino, Artemis Diesel and DJ Jet. The Charlotte natives (now residents of Boone) predominately perform  in western North Carolina generating local buzz with various magazines and newspapers in the area.  Now, the group is touring the state and promoting their current single Ease Off.

Describe your sound.

Pragmaddix displays a sound unique to our perspectives as artists and individuals.  We are both versatile in our lyrical ability and excel freestyling or rapping off top.  We cypher once a week and represent the #AppCypher and the #CypherUnivercity movement.  We can rap on any beat, any place, any time and make it dope.  We are all about the rap/hip-hop craft and constantly strive to push ourselves to master the art of word play.  We view great hip-hop music as a perfect blend of conscious hip-hop combined with a universal sound that can appeal to anyone.  We are students of the craft.

Who are your musical inspirations?

Our musical inspirations are Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Mos Def, Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Bone Thug N Harmony, The Roots, Yelawolf, Big Krit, Ab Soul, Schoolboy Q, Tech N9ne, Ritz, Outkast, Isaiah Rashad, Mick Jenkins, Big L, Big Pun.  Dope hip-hop constantly inspires us to work.

How did your group get started?

We both grew up loving hip-hop and met junior year of high school.  We would always freestyle and make music and spent most of our senior year avoiding school and making music.  We continued as roommates at Appalachian State in 2010 and continued to make music but spent a lot of our time focused on school.  About two years ago, we both decided that just getting a degree and a desk job was not enough for us.  We just want to do what we love and have fun.  Hip-hop is our passion and so from that we formed Pragmaddix.  We have been performing for just over a year.
