On Thursday January 23, 2014, New Orleans-born Memphis rapper Preauxx held a listening party for his upcoming EP “Die Willing” at Ardent Studios in Midtown. The event gave many in the Memphis music community an opportunity to hear what he has been working on, and was also something of a pep rally for the artist’s Pledge Music campaign toward the scheduled Spring release of his debut album “Forever. I Will.” The larger room with a DJ was a festive party room, while the engineer’s booth was the place where Preuaxx curated his new music for critical listening. The new songs sound great, and the whole event was a lot of fun. The “Die Willing” EP is available for download on Preauxx’s internet website here.
