Daniel Nwosu Jr. ((born March 22, 1994 ) who is popularly or best known as DAX is a Nigerian-Canadian Hip Hop singer and songwriter who became popular after releasing the video to his single, ‘Cash Me Outside‘.
The song was Dax’s ‘ode’ to Danielle Bregoli, a viral internet star who got her start on Dr. Phil by calling the entire audience “hoes” and asking the crowd if they want to “Cash Me Outside, How Bout That!” He released the official video to the song on February 2017, and it quickly went viral.
