David Angel Rodriguez (born 1982), commonly known as "X", is a Let's Player mostly known for creating "X's Adventures in Minecraft", a very popular Minecraft Let's Play series and the second Minecraft survival playthrough on YouTube; only Paul Soares Jr's series came before.
As of this edit, Rodriguez currently stands at 188,394 subscribers.
Rodriguez goes by three screen names: X, which comes from his World of Warcraft character named "Xalamon", Davidr64yt, which stands for "David Rodriguez 64 YouTube" (64 being his favorite number), and Davidangel64 (Angel being Rodriguez's middle name).
Apart from his face, Rodriguez's profession is the most secret aspect of his life. He has stated in various videos and blog posts that he either currently has or previously had a freelance writing business and is/was working at a cell phone company. Whenever Rodriguez's profession is asked in his streams by fans, the most common response is "I go out there and rock face/kick ass."
In past videos, Rodriguez stated that he was not sure if he wanted YouTube to become his full-time job, since it's a hobby and does it for the fun of it and when he feels like it. Although X may have a contract with Machinima, he has never publicly stated he makes his living off of his uploads, and his infrequent uploads and random upload sprees make it seem like he is not making a living off of YouTube.
In a recent stream of Dark Souls, David has stated he has a job, but will not disclose any details, and definitely does not make a living off of Youtube or Twitch considering he makes barely a dollar per Twitch stream just from ad revenue.
It is commonly believed that Rodriguez composed a piece of music called “Warm Rain in a Rust Red Sky” (heard at the beginning of this video). On August 5, 2015, during a livestream, X confirmed that he created it.
