Lex Lavo has been rocking stages all throughout New York City and now more than ever do we hear La Voz. The Spanish Harlem native recently released his 4th tape entitled The Voice EP. His bold characteristics and tonal ideologies shine over heavy drum patterns and warped futuristic chimes. The road to The Voice was an emblazoned trail as a kid embodying the boom bap, hip hop heads stylistics and the new trap wave that has washed over the legendary low-fi sound.
The EP is a great mesh of both and an example of how Bodega Dreams, Bodega Dreams 2 and Moral Values Principles got the young Emcee to this point. He grappled with his music sounding one sided and finally found a formula and balance to the music he feels represents him as Lex lavo presently. The 13 track EP boasts features from NYC Crème de la Crème like Dave East, Gorilla Nems, Danse of BKLYNSTICKUP and more. Nevertheless we are sonically greeted by a much more confident Lex lavo.
Among his growing arsenal of music Lex is in the midst of creating an empire consisting of indie label Darkside Distrik and clothing brand M.V.P Morals Values principles. The proclaimed “Spanish guy that doesn’t rap about Spanish things” is looking ahead to more visuals, more shows and a growing global fan base. Yes Global! As people from New York to Japan are rocking to songs like Never Worry off of The Voice – Lex looks to the future to further his pursuit of being the voice for the people that are struggling and searching for a way out.
Take the train uptown to Darkside District and get privy to the kid they call Lex Lavo.
