Johannesburg - Kid X may seem like the new kid on the hip hop block, but it's a role he says he's had to play his whole life.

Talking to DJ Capital on CliffCentral this week, Kid X reveals he's always been the new kid on the block.

"I kept moving around (as a kid). So many places. I've been to like 7 or 8 different schools throughout my school life, and so I've always been that new kid that had to acclimatise to a new surrounding," Kid X reveals.

In fact, it was in one of these schools that Kid X met another rapper, Kwesta. Last week Kwesta told DJ Capital that Kid X had been a bit of a loner in school.

Kwesta's view probably came from the fact that Kid X is just such a chilled person. His too-cool-to-care attitude has surprised many, but it's something Kid X says he developed after feeling like he had done it all at the age of 10.

"By the age of 10, I felt like I had lived my entire life and I was done. The first 10 years of my life were wild as f*ck. I did it all. I was a soccer star. I thought I would pop," he says.

"After 10, in terms of my character, I started to be more laid back and put thought behind my actions, and not acting wild," he adds.

And that, dear readers, is how to be as cool as Kid X!
