Andre Xcellence is a groundbreaking hip-hop artist who brings the ultimate party vibe. Hailing from DC, Andre’s background in poetry started at a young age, heavily influenced by his hero and role model Biggie Smalls. Spending his summers with his family in Trinidad and Tobago, Andre learned how to pair lyric and verse with his highly entertaining carnival roots.
His first job as a DJ in the underground electronic music scene in DC, Atlanta and Miami gave him a taste for club kids and cultivated his flair for the dramatic.
Influenced by his role models including Missy-Elliot, Peter Rauhofer, Jay-Z, DJ Abel and Animal from the Muppets, Andre aspires to take over the world. At the peak of his DJ career, he headlined New Year’s Eve at Space Miami. But he gave it all up to focus on his first love, hip-hop.
Andre Xcellence lives up to his name. His sheer exuberance, larger than life personality, and unique and unusual vibe has branded and him and his label as one stop shop for fun. Attracting some of the music industry’s biggest leaders, including Grammy winners Robert Margouleff and Graham Edwards, Andre and his team have produced music for all with the likes of Brianna Renee from Lifetimes’ Little Women of LA, Asia Ray, William Belle, Shangela , La Ganga, Estranga, and T.S. Madison. He currently resides in the Hollywood Hills.
