Flamingo Cantina

LEX the Lexicon Artist is a former academic overachiever-turned shamelessly nerdy rapper. Combining the influences of internet culture, Asian culture, cringe culture, and fandom culture, their explosive live performances explore the gamut of the human experience through a bold and irreverent lens. LEX creates weird, fun, brainy music to make you think, rage, and heal.

LEX has toured in 34 U.S. States and in Canada. They have been an official musical guest at various anime and gaming conventions, including Music and Gaming Festival (MAGFest) in National Harbor, MD; FanimeCon in San Jose, CA; SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX; Anime Expo in Los Angeles, CA; and ColossalCon East in Pennsylvania. LEX has also performed at major colleges and universities, including UC Davis, San Francisco State University, and Stanford University.

LEX has released two full length albums, “Alter Ego” (2020) and “Raging Ego” (2018), as well as a variety of singles and EPs. Their work has been featured on the actual play RPG podcast "Campaign: Skyjacks" (One Shot Podcast Network), and the Firefox documentary series "Firefox Presents".
