Bio

“Making it” in the music industry can be viewed in two different ways. Top 10 billboard or underground success story. Lex feels that success is measured by who you can effect with your talent, and what can be taken from it and passed along. Born Antoine Alexander in Los Angeles, California, then at a young age, he moved to Bloomfield, Connecticut, but music has been a part of his life since he was a toddler. From a house that was always playing the likes of “Al Green,” to “Stevie Wonder,” he understands that music is therapeutic, and can influence many and also can create enemies. Regardless, he pushes himself to the edge with his creativity and is not afraid to step way out of his boundaries to try new formulas and patterns of wordplay. 

Lex started writing rhymes at the age of 9 and actually started rapping at 13. Surrounded by many students in middle and high school that had the same passion, the biggest influences for music on his life come from his sister and his father. When he was too young (according to his mother) to listen to explicit rap music, it was his sister that snuck countless cd’s into his room so he could listen to them at night. From “A tribe called quest,” to “Onyx,” there were two groups that stood out to him, “Leaders of the new school,” and “Wu Tang Clan,” especially the groups lyrically extravagant and over the top front men “Busta Rhymes,” and “Reakwon” Lex’s‘ favorite MC’s of all time. He states, “ I would go into my own world when I listen to hip-hop, nothing around me existed except the music. I get really lost in it, its a great feeling.”

Lex kept writing and writing throughout the years, even with people telling him that he wasn’t good enough, or that he didn’t have what it takes or that he was just flat out wack. He took all that criticism and used it as fuel for his passion to continue to get better, and prove to everyone, he could be successful in the music business. In his life there is one person that he holds close as his mentor in music, his good friend and producer Nate Kahle. They have been making music for years and has heard people say “you guys understand each others creativity better than most artists do. You know what each other is thinking when you two are in the studio.” Another person that has played a part in his music endeavors, is his good friend Nick Barlow. Together, through years of rapping together in Nicks’ “Attic” and releasing a number of small mixtapes in Windsor, Connecticut, they were known throughout the town as “Tha Attic.” He always stood out from the pack, people were always asking about him, and trying to go at him. Lex’s old stage name was A-lex, which was taken from his last name Alexander. He released two mixtapes under this moniker, “Pass the Aspirin,” and the unreleased “Life of a Studio Junkie.” He recently changed his stage name because he wanted a “fresh start” and take a different approach with his music. 

Attic Records LLC was formed in 2010 is owned and operated by Lex and has numerous music releases coming soon in the near future.
