About this artist

Dxtr Spits was raised in Prince George’s County Maryland. His curious mind led him to become a jack of all trades as a scientist/engineer, musician, spoken word artist, and entrepreneur. He relocated to Chicago in 2014 after graduating from Virginia Tech where he got his degree as a Materials Science Engineer and met his mentor Dr. Nikki Giovanni. He began the pursuit of his performance career as Dxtr Spits, a witty, impactful, and energized lyricist. His motto is to "live life like an experiment, you cannot control what happens to you, but you can control the product you become". He explores experimental themes in his multi-sensory performances. His acapella spoken word and keynotes have brought crowds to tears while teaching inspirational deep life lessons. He most recently launched a movement called "How Men Cry" which is changing the narrative around mens relationship to vulnerability and mental health, with the intention of making compassion contagious.
