Bio

LEX, born Joseph Webb, grew up in the Grafton Avenue projects in Newark, NJ until the age of 10. From adolescence to adulthood LEX branched off to many other areas of the infamous Brick City. Living around these varying elements made for a challenging life. Even though, Joseph didn’t have the guidance of his father he still managed to discern his direction and a future. He fortunately had enough nurturing support from his mother, grandmother, and uncle. With his mother being his source of inspiration, he progressed through the concrete jungle with aspirations of a career in music. This motivation coupled with his surroundings gave him a level of experience that would later have an immense influence on his growth as a young man as well as a lyricist. Internalizing the many things that he encountered in his life and being able to convey them poetically allowed him to navigate urban life and survive while simultaneously strengthening the potency of his prose. LEX and his continuing struggle to ascend beyond the perils of urban plight only infuse the passion and power of his talent. He is, much like his many influences, a voice for and of the street. Many critics find him following in the foot steps of some of hip hop’s most notable MC’s such as: Nas, Jay Z and Pac to name a few. Even in the company of those rappers, he solidifies his own niche by staying true to himself and his own experiences. Whether LEX is vibing off of a track or inspired by everyday encounters, his lyrical impulses seem to always be on point. LEX started rapping in high school and took this genuine interest and involvement to the next level after graduating. He then attended a County College for a semester and shortly after left school. His decision to leave school was marked by his focus to succeed musically.
Now 22 years of age, LEX is currently working with some of the area’s most precision producers. He is presently part owner and recording with Street Gang Entertainment. LEX is destined to deliver a part his life’s experiences and his understanding of the world by spreading his own unique brand of music.
