From his biggest dream to beatboxing with the stars, here are a few interesting things we know about Spencer X.
1) He's worked with some big artists
Spencer has collaborated with big artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys and G-Eazy, to name just a few.
He's also performed for top brands such as Citibank, Pepsi, Coca Cola, Vans, Yelp, Saks 5th Avenue, and many more.
2) His dream is to perform at the Superbowl
"I'm going to be the largest man-made business within the entertainment industry," Spencer told Forbes in 2020. "I'm going to beatbox at the Grammy's. I'm going to beatbox with Beyonce. And my dream dream is that I want to perform at the Super Bowl," he said.
But Spencer wouldn't be the first TikTok star to perform at the Superbowl, as Charlie D'Amelio beat him to it with a dance performance with none other than JLo in 2020.
3) He dropped out of university twice
Spencer's parents desperately wanted him to get his college degree, even though by that point he already knew that beatboxing was his true calling.
Spencer reportedly tried university twice, dropping out before completing his course both times. He first went to Purchase College to study science, but gave it up after a year-and-a-half. He then moved on to another college to study maths, but that didn't work out either.Featured Image Credit: Instagram/@iamspencerx
