Biography

Most recently Adair was on the front page of the LA Times and has received national acclaim on MSN, TIME, Perez Hilton, Huffington Post etc... with his Pro-LGBT song “Ben” off of his upcoming album called “Michael & Me.” Adair Lion is definitely unsigned hype, so take advantage of getting in on his music early. He has the potential to really shine in the music industry. His next album titled "Michael & Me" will be released this summer. Stay tuned... this is going to be a big year for the young MC.

Adair Lion is a rapper / singer /producer / director born and raised in the rough streets of central El Paso, Tx near the infamous murder capital of Juarez, Mexico. Adair strives to be unlike what's perceived of Latinos by the main stream media. He decided that he would be a positive influence for Latino youth. Entrepreneurial minded he co-founded a music label called Above The Notes, based off the belief that a label should work to touch the lives of others by doing more than just making music.

Adair Lion received a Degree from the University of Texas at Austin in Music with an Emphasis on Vocal Performance and Concentration in Sound Engineering. While in Austin he performed with a group called BOOMBOXatx and was mentored by MC Overlord (Austin's 10 time best hip-hop Artist of the Year / Austin Rock N' Roll Hall Of Fame inductee).

It was in Austin that he grew an affinity for live music, which is evident in his live show. On stage, Adair's show has great depth. Performing with a live drummer, dj, back up singer and b-boy, Adair has an on stage dynamic that most entertainers would envy. Adair Lion and the Above The Notes cast have performed at shows and charity events all over Texas for crowds up to 8,000 people strong and was even invited to perform for a SXSW showcase this year.
Musically, his songs are filled with clever metaphors, smooth melodies and a positive vibe. Easy on the eyes, Adair Lion also has sex appeal to compliment his radio friendly tunes.

His philosophy on music is that he thinks artists should treat every song like a single. Adair says this about creating music, "We should always place our best foot forward... we should place our best product up and not compromise just to fill up album tracks. Why shouldn't we (artists) treat all of our songs like singles? Let's make a new standard."
Adair Lion has received a plethora of acclaim on online hip-hop sites and blogs including Bro Bible, Good Music All Day, Fresh New Tracks and The Kollection just to name a few. Journaling his progress, they said that he will one day be a house hold name. Never shying away, Adair Lion has accepted that challenge.

i found my genie but i don't have a wish list
i just want my jasmin to treat me like i'm different
i just want my fam to live like in my vision
i just want our clothing line to fit even the fattest kid
i just want me and my crew to sell out madison

I can open doors for you.. yes I am a gentleman
but i shake it up tho... yeah I get to rattling
and I go hard every rhyme… like im cypher battling

Before the fine dining and Egyptian linen

HOOK
Sicka Than Yo Average
(OOOoooo Ahhhhhh back ground vocals)

HOOK
i thought i told you that i'm hot...
we bout to take it to the top...
this is why they say that i'm hot

they say my flow is cold like colorado
they say my long lost twin is palomalo
they say i sound like drake ... that's outta bounds yo
but on real i'm cool with that on the down low
i did it like no one else has ever done it man
that's the reason why i'm sicka and i run it man
take that thermometer outta my mouth
i already know i'm sick i grew up in the south
some say i'm really cold
some say i'm really hot
i guess i'm in-between with the girl you wish you got
that's neither here nor there i got style flow and metaphor
that's why i met a 10 and you only met a 4
people say i'm soft cause i'm so well rounded
that's called talent... i know you haven't found it
i polished all my crafts .. all the ones sent to me
so you can copy bite and jack but you'll never be... SICKA THAN YO AVERAGE

HOOK
i thought i told you that i'm hot...
we bout to take it to the top...
this is why they say that i'm hot

You Can't Buy This

Written By: Adair Lion

YOU CAN'T BUY THIS

VERSE 1
get in different moods... so i got different flows
i produce play instruments you'd never know
with my crew Above The Notes i speak different code
i can sing i was blessed i got different modes
you can't buy this it's priceless
my heart thumps like a sub.. i swear a boombox inside it.
that's supa flyness supa supa flyness
that's what happens when you make shit that's timeless
i'm feelin' good like big's juicy verse
the game needs me ...it's headed for the hurst
i'm like a tree cause what you see is not all of me
i'm underground too, "The Roots" flow constantly
i'm on a quest love (?estlove) never bet modestly
i'm all in... put your money on the prodigy
even as a cub hoopin' with no J's
i'd break ankles... tell the spoiled kids hey...

HOOK
you can't buy this
you can't buy this
you can't buy this
supa supa flyness
supa flyness
that's what happens
when you make shit that's timeless

VERSE 2
call me sun .. not cause i'm your son
but.. because i shine and i'm the only one
and even if you choose to close your eyes you still feel me
this isn't just my vernacular it's the real me
you can buy these ray's but you wont see what i see
you can buy these j's but you'll never be who i be
timless... with supa supa flyness
because michael wasn't jordan without a team
Dux, T dot, Louie Siah you know what i mean
i'm pourin' my heart and soul into this dream
now i'm five star rated 5 starsin my crew
4 stars got my back ... what about you? huh?
you can't buy this on the mic the niceness
on the stage the brightness with the crowd the hypeness
every touch is midas flowin' like the tigris
ask what the price is you can't afford priceless nawww

HOOK
you can't buy this
you can't buy this
you can't buy this
supa supa flyness
supa flyness
that's what happens
when you make shit that's timeless

OUTRO
i'm fugees "the score" meets "watch the throne" (jay & kanye)
now look at how the student has grown...
i'm rappin' like the finest, im chillin' with a dime-ess
you hollering at nappy headed hoes - Don Imus

women on attack masterpieces by the stacks
i'm timeless... yeah i'm timeless
