EP Review: Mythologies – Lex Leosis

From a personal standpoint, LEX LEOSIS is a prime model of a female rapper: a very bold contender, who isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind and doesn’t take any crap from anyone. These qualities are evident in her brand new EP, ‘Mythologies’

The set covers array of topics – from standing up to domestic violence to dealing with ‘situationships’ and busy bodies head on.

Although ‘Mythologies’ predominantly showcase a menacing drive of trip-hop, there are nice touches of retro/80s soul funk (featured in second effort, ‘Ouzo’) and laid-back afterhours (as featured in Gemini), where the Canadian rapper tells her tale of certain aspects of her life.

You may have come across various music blogs and magazines, pushing you to add a punch of newcomers under your radar…and among those talents should be Lex Leosis, as her flow rips through the bars of each track with raw passion and conviction. Check her out below…

Must Listens: Ouzo, Gemini, Atropos.

Song of the Day: Mind Your Own Business – Lex Leosis

LEX LEOSIS‘ latest track, ‘Mind Your Own Business’ is for every person who has been frustrated by someone else trying to rush their process.

The Canadian rapper offer more insight into the Rainer + Grimm-produced track: “After three years spent with The Sorority (hip-hop group) and working on my sound, I was getting tired of people on me about my whereabouts and future plans. All that energy kinda exploded on to this track. Artists should work and create at their own pace. Sometimes art is made quickly, sometimes it’s a long and painful process. Artists are humans first and we go through things like everyone else.”

Using bouzouki (a Greek string instrument) as the main feature of the track, ‘Mind Your Own Business’ is the last piece from Lex’s upcoming new album.

Lil Sago Drops Video For Track, ‘Taught Him A Lesson’

As regional rappers rise up through the barracks of UK music, LIL SAGO is the first to make his debut from the most northern city in England, Carlisle. Teaming up with Risky Roadz for the video release, ‘Taught Him A Lesson’ comes with a burly trap beat and a straight-talking northern accent that is set to shift the spotlight on to the previously untapped scene.

Growing up through the Channel U era and taking inspiration from the raw, vibrant D.I.Y music scene, Lil Sago tucked himself away in the forgotten corners of the north west and invented himself as a bedroom musician. Self-taught through experience and his careful analysis of his favorite musicians, he soon learnt to rap and produce his own records, gaining confidence along the way. Breaking away from the typical career avenues around him, Lil Sago has battled a number of obstacles and negativities to remain focused on his craft. ‘Taught Him A Lesson’ is an ode to the negativity and a reminder that his own passion and progress is paying off.

Building his own repertoire and learning how to self-release, Lil Sago has previously dropped ‘Homer’ with Manchester producer BeatsByAce, self-produced ‘Drippin’ and a seven-track album ‘Real Talk’, an intermixture of Hip Hop, Grime, Trap and Drill. A huge fan and contributor to the scene, he regularly hosts and performs across the county of Cumbria where he’s not only gained a loyal following but also helped build a thriving live scene.

A pioneer of British Black Music from one of the farthest corners of the country, it’s time to keep watch on Lil Sago as he teaches us all a lesson…
