LEX the Lexicon Artist is a nerdcore hip-hop artist currently based in Oakland, California. A graduate of UC Berkeley, LEX began the Lexicon Artist project in 2016, by writing and performing original songs inspired by her multicultural upbringing, her psychology education, and popular culture. Since then, LEX has become a mainstay performer in anime, gaming, and technology conventions across the country, connecting to thousands of fans with her relatable songs about nerd culture and personal identity.

In May 2018, LEX won a grant from the Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center in San Francisco, which allowed her to organize an Asian-American-focused rap showcase. It was headlined by Ruby Ibarra and hosted by the historic venue Bottom of the Hill.

In September 2018, LEX went on a national tour with Adult Swim veteran and nerdcore rapper mc chris. She performed in 39 cities across 7 weeks in every region of the United States. Since then, she has gone on to make mainstage appearances at the Music and Gaming Festival (MAGFest) in National Harbor, Maryland and the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

LEX has released multiple EPs and one full-length album, “Raging Ego”, which was met with critical acclaim.
