Championxiii Interview


      "Twenty-three-year-old Springfield rapper Championxiii, born Kayson Christopher Acuna, has garnered quite the Internet following nearly overnight. In what started out as a part of his video series “rappers be like” on the short video sharing app TikTok, Championxiii’s hit single “Becky” touched the global viral charts of Spotify while generating millions of streams across YouTube & Apple Music.

       Inspired heavily by the music of the 80s, Championxiii kicked off his music career at the young age of 13 finding comfort in creating R&B, Rap and Spoken Word, which he shows flashes of across his 30-minute project Champion Status. Championxiii’s ceiling remains to be seen, but if the loads of fans rapping “Becky” on their Instagram stories is any indication, superstardom could be on the way." - Championxiii
