New York rapper LEX caters
to Hip Hop diehards by releasing the Domingo-produced track
"Hip Hop Alphabet," lead single for his upcoming album H.A.S.H?!.
The Nuyorican MC has poured
nearly a dozen years of music recording and performance
experience into an album meant as an embrace of Hip Hop's
The new track is a play on
the names of various rappers, and was inspired by Lex's
opportunity to work established beatsmith Domingo Padilla. Lex
considers "Hip Hop Alphabet" a nod to artists that were
influential in his love for the genre, and created a song with
a previously unused concept.
Lex was able to connect

LatinRapper.com, describing the New York beatmaker responsible
for his single. "I am grateful to this day for the opportunity
to put my words over his music."

lead single for H.A.S.H?!, a 15-track effort slated for

1994 single by rap group M.O.P.. The titled of the album

music. H.A.S.H?!, however, does not entirely cater to
that particular fanbase.
Lex described the new album
as music for Hip Hop purists, with lyrics that originate in
life's struggles. "It's an aspect of Hip Hop that has
unfortunately been set aside in the mainstream, and replaced
with the glorification of pure bullshit" the rapper explained.
The artist considers this new album as a gift for hardcore Hip
Hop heads, and his personal return of rap music to its
In addition to Domingo,
other producers on the album will include taeOne of New York
Rhyme Exchange, N1 Illa, LR Hook, DJ Soulclap, Keelay of the
Sole Vibe, Lyve of Tha Goodness, SEASRA23, and Psycho Les of
The Beatnuts fame.
H.A.S.H?! will be
released under Lex's own label imprint, Minority Rules
Entertainment. The album will be available for purchase
on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud.
