"XL The Truth - Henny & Pain"

Tune in and check out the new single from XL The Truth which is set to be released on his next project soon to be announced later in the year. Hailing out of Northern Virginia, XL has been one of the most sought out artist on the rise in the DMV area. The new single “Henny & Pain” should really help him grasp more attention from people all around the world who are baring pain from personal experiences to the things that’s been going on in the world over the past week. XL is fresh off the heels of his highly anticipated mixtape “No Collection Plate” which was released May 17th, 2016. - The Hype Magazine

"XL The Truth - Problem"

DMV rapper XL (also known as XL The Truth) is guaranteed to be a “Problem” for naysayers and rappers who aren’t on their game. With “Problem,” the first single off his upcoming “No Collection Plate” album, XL shows that he is well on his way to becoming one of the most sought after rappers on the East Coast. - Hip Hop Since 1987

"XL The Truth - Henny & Pain"

Pain is something that we all face. As a people we spend most of our days trying to escape it. Only those who embrace it will survive and conquer a new abundant lifestyle. XL TheTruth is a rising star in the hip hop world with an incredible sound and stupendous lyrics. He recently discussed the drought him and his family faces on his latest single “Henny & Pain”.

This song was really inspiring for me because XL TheTruth refused to give. In life some of us give it thought because of the emotions we feel inside, but this emcee showed me what being a warrior is all about. With no handouts, hard work, and dedication XL TheTruth continues to give us that heat the world can enjoy. I highly recommend all DJ’s, Radio Host, Bloggers, and Fans of Hip Hop make this single go viral. - Hip Hop Weekly

"[NEW MUSIC] XL The Truth Ft AR-AB – “All I Know”"

Most down south rappers are known for turning up and not being lyrical, but XL The Truth is different. He is one of the main reason why hip hop is still in these days and times. This up and coming artist represents the culture and what hip hop was built on. It feels good to hear something really exclusive like this hit single “All I Know” from both XL The Truth and Ar-Ab. This record was definitely made for all the real people out there doing it big without perpetrating a fraud. I highly recommend you all support a real lyricist who is not afraid of being himself and takes his craft seriously. - HipHopWeekly


Still working on that hot first release.



Michael Jones, known for his stage name, XL, was raised in a small crime riddled city in Virginia. Coming from a single mother, low income household, he took interest in multiple sports and earned the interest of many major college football programs. As his football career was beginning to prosper, also being two weeks before signing day, he was involved in a life-altering incident that landed him behind bars. The severity of the charge thwarted any chance of receiving an athletic scholarship. Upon receiving his GED while incarcerated, he earned an academic scholarship because of high test scores. He then became a walk-on to the team and earned his athletic scholarship where he excelled becoming an all-American and started gathering interest from the NFL. All while sneaking from Virginia to attend school in another state.

He had fought his way back into the football world until he was told no team would draft or sign him with a homocide looming on his record. The dream of becoming a pro football player had once again disappeared, so he thought. A Canadian football team(CFL) decided his skills outweighed the risk and extended a contract. His dream would be snatched one final time when he was told American felons could not obtain a Canadian work-permit.
