“rap-rock that’s both cerebral and self-empowering”
- Kyle Petersen, Free Times SC
LEX the Lexicon Artist makes high-energy rap music for the mind. Plagued with self-repression, neurotic ambition, and delusions of grandeur, Taiwanese-American rapper, writer, and creator Alex Sun Liu created LEX in 2016 to shield polite society from her most socially unacceptable attributes, by bringing them onstage instead. With a comically narcissistic persona and a domineering stage presence, LEX delivers surgically precise rapid-fire rap lyrics about nerd culture, personal identity, and the depths of the human mind. LEX is ugly and real, and speaks to the minds of misfits everywhere. A lifelong academic overachiever, social pariah, and pop culture fanatic, LEX creates music and live experiences for the world’s brainy outcasts who want to find somewhere they belong.
