Emerging new rap artist hailing from Brooklyn New York is Lerix, a man with a mission. His debut EP “New Heights” was released in November 2010. And the track listing and standard of lyrical contemporary flow does not fail to disappoint. Lerix has preformed at numerous shows around in the US Cities. Most notably he played at Littlefield, for the Full Spectrum Show as part of the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival; at the Beauty Bar and at Rockwells.
Each track brings a reminiscence of the past. And to do that and be able to still keep hold of the present is not an easy task, however Lerix has shown it is not impossible. With his similarities to Roc Nation's J Cole, "New Heights" is definitely on the right track.
The playlist has been strategically formatted to believe Lerix coud be next to sign to the Roc Nation roster, and he would not be out-of-place alongside his fellow peers. The addictive beats make listening to his lyrical flow easy on the ear, leaving you wanting more because of that fact. Finding and maintaining a balance shows the levels of research this artist is doing to nail his potential target audience and to show he is bang on correct for 2011.
I compliment his ego and driven personality for not overseeing his raw creative ability as "New Heights" does not just showcase his talent and versatility but also a snapshot into his personality, life and most importantly the genres of music he was bought up on. An element of dominant genres, Rock, Pop, Micheal Jackson and the Hip Hop mogul Jay-Z, sets Lerix up ready for 2011 to do what he came to do… Give the people what they want!
