Rexx Life Raj
By Jack Barnes
Gliding over innovative electronic instrumentals with an unshakeable sense of melody and a cerebral introspection, Rexx Life Raj uses his art to probe life’s deepest questions. Sometimes, though, he just likes to let loose. Cleverly boasting about his rhyming and earning prowess, Raj takes a break from introspection to give himself a little love on “Forever Lit,” his latest single. Produced by Mikos Da Gawd and JULiA LEWiS, “Forever Lit” is a gurgling lava lamp of an instrumental, complete with G-Funk synth, rippling keys, and clacking woodblocks, a perfect canvas for Raj to rhyme about realizing his potential. Featuring an appearance from G-Eazy, the XXL-premiered “Forever Lit” is the latest single from Father Figure 2: Flourish, Raj’s upcoming album. Featuring appearances from G-Eazy, Russ, and Iman Europe and contributions from some of the Bay Area’s most innovative producers, including Mikos Da Gawd, JULiA LEWiS, Ian McKee, Drew Banga, Kyle Betty, and more, Father Figure 2: Flourish arrives on November 17th via EMPIRE.
