Take a ride with LargeUp as we tag along with dancehall crossover star, Mr. Lexx. Of Jamaican artists, Lexx has achieved a feat rarely pulled off with such style, maintaining an international presence in various circuits for over a decade, possibly due to his comical, friendly nature, ambitious work ethic and monstrously bass-y voice.
In this episode of LargeUp TV. Mr. Lexx takes us on an adventure voicing dubplates (promotional songs endorsing DJs) at recording studios all around Kingston………… He breaks it all down for us, explaining how he’s kept himself in the mix all these years, as he makes his way through the streets from studio to studio before winding up at a dance.
Check out Mr. Lexx’s current hit, “Dem A Pree” off Ward 21’s Cosa Nostra Riddim. The song displays Lexx’s playful style and next level lyricism. Enjoy, re-post and repeat!
