The Pain Is Inside: Lyrical LeXX pours it all out with the emotionally-charged ‘Red Solo Cup’

As his heart-grabbing stories of how life was like growing up without a true home, Lyrical LeXX shows us what it really feels like on his latest single made from the heart with ‘Red Solo Cup‘.

Alex Hayton aka Lyrical LeXX is a self-made and highly motivated Washington state-raised, Orlando, Florida-based rapper/songwriter and BA in Youth Development student. He makes music about how tough it was growing up in a foster care system, that needs changing real quick and how he survives in this rather strange world.

With political, economic, and social oppression rife in a sadly divided nation, his sound is a reflection of what is outside his front door. This is a man who knows what he has to do now and is ignoring the fake noise and constant sirens, as he pulls his strength together to beat to odds, on what others thought possible of him.

Inspired by legends such as Tupac, Nipsey Hussle, Big Sean, and Lil Durk who are his influences, you feel his courageousness to make his dream a reality, whilst opening up his mind to what the world really is, as he raps with such skillful abandon.

You feel his true stories lifting the lid of how it truly feels emotionally, as he tries to express the picture to us with a style that really grabs you and is hard to forget. He opens the door with tears in his eyes, as we seen what its like to be abandoned and left for dead, a young kid who just wants to love and be loved.

Red Solo Cup‘ from the talented Florida-based hip-hop artist Lyrical LeXX, is an ear-bending experience that fills up your cup and has you thinking deeply about life and how fractured this world really is, to those who need help the most.
