Lex the Radical

Lex the Radical is a Detroit-based hip-hop artist and producer, known for his poignant lyricism, sample-driven production, and socially conscious commentary. As a member of the historic Detroit hip-hop group Captwolf, Lex has built a reputation for his introspective and thought-provoking music, addressing personal struggles, spirituality, and societal issues. Since making his solo debut in 2017 with "Eighty on the Dash," produced by Kidrackz, Lex has continued to release a series of impactful singles, including "Choices," "All I Want," and "No Breaks." His music offers a balance of introspection and carefree fun, providing a space for listeners to reflect on their own experiences while also having a good time. Lex's forthcoming debut album, "I Wish I Could Tell You What's Been Goin On," is entirely self-produced and explores his own struggles with addiction and trauma, as well as his experiences as a Black man and a father.
