Single: whiterosemoxie – “Flavors“
The Multi-Faceted Detroit Artist Cruises Through a Carnival of Synths in the Latest HUMAN BEHAVIOR Single
“Detroit’s whiterosemoxie has the hustle to be one of the most prolific young artists in hip-hop.” – DJ Booth
Artist of the Month – Pigeons & Planes
“whiterosemoxie has turned heads with his versatility and his ability to jump from pop and R&B ballads to trap records.” – US Weekly
“whiterosemoxie walks the line between pop and rap in a way that few other artists have been able to effectively accomplish.” – Ones to Watch
“While some artists rely on 808s and percussion to carry the rhythm and flow of the music, Moxie can do that with his voice alone. “ – ONE37pm
Deftly navigating diverse instrumentals with superb melodic instincts, Detroit native whiterosemoxie specializes in brash and experimental hip-hop. Indulging in his playful side with his percolating new single, moxie seeks simplicity in a complex world with “flavors.” A sharp contrast from his stripped-down recent single “girls die,” “flavors” finds moxie swimming in a room-enveloping, plugg-style atmosphere, complete with distorted 808s, whimsical organ melodies, and calming piano chords. Presented with this cornucopia of sounds, moxie takes a beat, using his natural gravitas and pleasing rasp to ground the carnival-esque music in reality. The 20-year-old artist takes a moment to flex, rhyming with a palpable grin as he brags about his Burberry coats and burgeoning bankroll.
“We got flavors on, we got flavors in…this song is still one of my favorites,” says whiterosemoxie. “Kaleb took us to church with those chords and then it gets real ignorant. This song is the first song on the HUMAN BEHAVIOR project that you can begin see the lyrical shift towards the more introspective side of things.”
“flavors” is the latest step on the road to HUMAN BEHAVIOR, moxie’s forthcoming debut album. Recorded in Detroit by moxie and a coterie of local collaborators, HUMAN BEHAVIOR deeply personal to talk about themes of love, loss, excess, addiction, violence, ego, exuberance, desperation, and joy, and while the stories are Moxie’s own, his songwriting is at its best when other kids see themselves in his work. More than a musical diary that tracks the varied experiences of a 20 year-old navigating life as an artist in Detroit, HUMAN BEHAVIOR is focused examination of how difficult it can be to determine whether or not we are in control of or actually controlled by the forces in our lives. Home to recent singles like the unapologetic “Wayside” and the striking “whts rght.” HUMAN BEHAVIOR arrives later this year via 300 Entertainment.
whiterosemoxie has established himself as one of the most ambitious and forward-thinking rising artists in the game today. The young polymath has generated over 30 million streams across platforms to date, including over 12 million on his first-ever release “whitegold.” Though he built his audience during the pandemic, he’s an astonishing live performer, showing off his live chops at festivals like Rolling Loud Miami and HIVE Music Festival, and recently thrilling his hometown crowd at halftime of a Detroit Pistons game. Most recently, Moxie showed his range on his recent Habits EP, a melodic 7-track effort that stretched his vocal skills and featured guest appearances from BIGBABYGUCCI and Daboat.
Always working, but never out of ideas, whiterosemoxie looks to make a major impact with his upcoming HUMAN BEHAVIOR. Stay tuned for more music and more details about the project.

Moxie is a 20 year old rapper from the west side of Detroit. Moxie’s musical journey began in a dark place–when he was 8-years-old, an asthma attack left him in a coma for five days. This near-death experience changed Moxie’s life, and convinced the young man that he needed to make music to express his feelings and fight against the void. He released his song “whitegold” at age 16, which now has over 12 million streams across platforms. A year later Assemble Sound released his debut project “white ceilings”, which earned him a deal with 300 Entertainment in the middle of COVID before Moxie had even graduated high school. Since then he has amassed over 30 million streams across platforms and established himself as one of the most promising and prolific young voices in music, earning praise from the likes of US Weekly, DJ Booth, HotNewHipHop, and Pigeons & Planes, who named him to their monthly list of Best New Artists.
