FAMOUS DEX RELEASES PROOFREAD

Famous Dex returns with his new single “Proofread” featuring rap superstar Wiz Khalifa. The record finds Dex leaning towards a more refreshing and melodic sound, as compared to his usual high energy up-tempo music, making Wiz Khalifa the perfect match for the single.

Since the release, songs off the album such as “Japan” and “Pick It Up” have both gone 2x platinum with over 350+ million collective streams to date earning Dex the stamp of a certified hitmaker.
