Born in Mo’ City TX and raised on Houston’s southeast side, the
pint-size, four-foot eleven inch “Real Life Pin up doll” known as
“Lexxi ” has taken her experiences in life and placed them to rhyme
At the age of thirteen Lexxi began performing in local talent shows with the teen girl group, Basic Style. After the death of band member, Tristan Johnson, Basic Style was disbanded and Lexxi relocated to Katy TX. While in Katy, Lexxi joined the James E. Taylor High School choir and learned to read music and honed her technical music skills. In 2002 Lexxi entered the Houston Omega Psi Phi scholarship and talent search competition. After winning her local division, Lexxi competed in the regional competition and placed 6th overall receiving a college scholarship.
Lexxi then enrolled at the historically black Wiley College where she entered the Communications program. At Wiley Lexxi began working at the college radio station, where she was embraced by the East TX party scene. With hard work and discipline, Lexxi made a name for herself as one of the prominent female emcees throughout the Ark-La-Tex.
In 2006 Lexxi began an internship with 103.7 The Beat in Shreveport, Louisiana and was taken under the wings of legendary Deejays; Quinn Echols, Mercedes, Daddy Ro, and Holly Hood Bay Bay of the hit song Aye Bay Bay. Under their tutelage, Lexxi learned the art of stage presence and commanding an audience.
Lexxi graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree and began working and continues to work for rolling out Magazine, which she credits with teaching her the art of branding yourself as an artist.
In 2011 Lexxi teamed up with Propayne James, Jafunmi Entertainment and Support Street Music to bring “Lexxi Presents: The Music & Madness Mixtape”, which helped to foster the rising Itunes hit “Mile High Club” and the underground song of the summer “Throw My Money on Tha Flow”.
With a recent feature on TroubleSum “Houston’s First Lady of Hip Hop” debut single “SWAG” a feature on Coast 2 Coast mixtape Vol. 209 Hosted by Pete Rock and placement on Legendary DJ Carmen Sandiego Bow Down Remix with Houston female icons Candi Red, Cl'che and Surreal; Lexxi is riding the underground wave of success making her presence and name known and felt in the male dominated industry.
Lexxi is truly the hot new female artist to watch coming out of Houston and with hits like these you can’t deny that this singer/rapper/songwriter is in a new refreshing league of her own.
