My birth name is Mpho Mashea, artistic name XTheOrator. Started doing music back when I was in High School, in my 10th grade. Fell in love with hip hop back in elementary, got introduced to it by a close friend of mine. And ever since I've been psyched, a maniac and a fanatic of the genre. Am not just an artist, I am a Poet, teacher, preacher. I give lessons and sermons on this beats. Except all that am just a normal guy who live, eats and breaths music, Art in a nutshell.
