Today Seattle rapper Lyrical Lexx delivers his new single, “I Cannot.” The single is a somber reminder that he can’t let people bring him down on his rise to the top. “I Cannot” follows in a musical lane similar to other emo-rappers that have battled through personal struggles and have a resilient message for fans.
“I always listened to music as a kid, and I always used music to help me cope and deal with what I was going through,” Lyrical Lexx said. “For me I do music based on how I’m feeling. If I’m feeling a certain type way my music is affected by how my mood at any given time.”
With so many positive things happening for Lyrical Lexx musically, “I Cannot” is a personal song that Lexx hopes motivates fans in their own life too.
“I Cannot basically was just having me fun with the beat and talking about some of the things that are going well for me in my life. I have a bunch of things that are going well for me right now and a lot of times when you have that happen people try to bring you down,” Lyrical Lexx said.
Recording, producing and rapping his own lyrics, Lyrical Lexx is a completely self-made artist.
“Honestly I’ve been independent since I started. For the past few years, since I’ve been taking it seriously, I self record, I do have my brother as an engineer, but now I’m starting to work with Mr. Lee and so now I’m starting to put together some of that music,” he said.
In addition to his rap career Lyrical Lexx is also working on opening his own studio just 30 minutes outside of the Seattle area.
“I’m building my own studio and I’m working on trying to develop that in the Washington state area. It’s just about 30 minutes outside of Seattle and it’s going to be called, Lexicon Studios.”
