Biography

In the year 2000, Mr. lexicon sailed to the US on a homemade boat. They have spent the past 6 years learning English and learning American culture through Rap. Their music has drawn comparison's to Cypress Hill and the Beastie Boys. Their album Foreign Policy has been called the Hip Hop equivalent of Green Day's American Idiot. Even in the post 911 world of xenophobia, their innovative music and distinctive personality have made them an instant smash from the grimiest underground clubs to Hollywood cast parties. On the stage, on record, the movie screen, and in the new comic book based on their lives, Mr. Lexicon represents for the foreigner in all of us!

“The Bay Area’s Mr. Lexicon would appear to be the latest entry into the conscious rap scene. It’s nice to see someone injecting humor into the all-to-serious political spectrum, and once these guys disarm you with a laugh, they beat you over the head with their inspired lyricism. A Mr. Lexicon show is endlessly engaging and draws from the unfermented energy of Iggy Pop and The Stooges.”
