Rexx Life Raj
By Jack Barnes
Using his expressive pen and silky vocals to explore inward and comment on society, Rexx Life Raj seeks to provoke thought with his music. On the guitar-led “Never Had Shit,” Raj opens up about his personal evolution, from admiring those who’ve survived life in the streets to understanding life’s serious consequences. In the video, Raj contemplates accompanying his friends in a robbery, giving into the temptation of fast money. “Never Had Shit” is the first half of “Never Had Shit/Feels,” a centerpiece of Father Figure 2: Flourish, Raj’s acclaimed 2017 album. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Earning praise from critics and fellow artists such as Nef The Pharaoh, Scott Storch, and Pharrell Williams, who joined Raj onstage at ComplexCon, Rexx Life Raj is one of the most exciting new artists in the Bay Area. Since 2016, he earned glowing press coverage from Billboard, Pigeons & Planes, Pitchfork, Noisey, and XXL, and earned the cover spot on Spotify’s Mellow Bars playlist with his single “Handheld GPS,” which earned over 4 million streams on the service, as well as over 20 million streams on all platforms. A former football player at D1 powerhouse Boise State University, Rexx Life Raj’s Father Figure 2: Flourish, distributed by EMPIRE, was another level up in the young rapper’s career, featuring singles such as “Forever Lit” ft. G-Eazy, “Burn Baby Burn,” featuring Russ,” and “Where I Belong,” which was recently the subject of a Genius explainer. Stay tuned in 2018 for much more great music from the young rapper and Instagram caption god.
