Artist Anthem

LEX the Lexicon Artist is Taiwanese-American rapper and egomaniac Alex Sun Liu. Plagued with self-repression, neurotic ambition, and delusions of grandeur, Alex created LEX in 2016 to shield polite society from her most socially unacceptable attributes, by redirecting them onto the stage instead.

With a comically narcissistic persona and a domineering stage presence, LEX delivers surgically precise rapid-fire raps about things she likes, things she’s done, and things everyone else is too afraid to say. LEX is ugly and real, and speaks to the minds of misfits everywhere. A larger-than-life portrait and complete self-expression of one 5’4’’ Asian nerd, LEX is the freshest new rapper on Earth - “not in spite of being a nerd, but because of it."

LEX has performed at Emerald City Comic Con, MAGWest, PAXWest, SXSW, and Super MAGFest. She most recently toured the country with mc chris and int80 of Dual Core.

LEX is currently based in Oakland, California. Her full-length debut album, “Raging Ego”, was released on June 6th, 2018 to critical acclaim.
