Toronto, ON – November 22, 2019 – Rising dancehall artist, Lexxicon, brings the heat as winter approaches with his new single, Fatty Fatty. Celebrating inclusion and body positivity, it is the first track from the Toronto-based artist’s forthcoming album, Bashment Trap House, out January 31, 2020. Listen to Fatty Fatty and watch a lyric video for the track here.
“This track is to get your blood running, heart pumping, and emotions jumping,” Lexxicon says of Fatty Fatty. “It’s a little piece of the islands with a twist, the perfect addition to your personal gym playlist!
Produced by Kontrabandz, Fatty Fatty is about celebrating life, tying into the project’s overall theme around Lexxicon’s journey as a Jamaican/Canadian hybrid Hip-Hop/Dancehall artist. The hook is gender-neutral, embracing an inclusive party track that everyone can vibe to. Overall, the song's message is to be confident in your body and draws elements from 90s Dancehall music with a Hip-Hop backdrop.
Hip-Hop/Dancehall artist Lexxicon fluctuates between Dancehall Patois, R&B harmonies, and melodic rapping with pure power. Born in Jamaica, Lexxicon moved to Birmingham, England and then New York City before settling in Toronto, Canada, where he found the drive, passion, and tools to become a recording artist. He honed his talent by growing in some of the city’s talent incubators such as R.I.S.E Edutainment, and UrbanArts – B.M.M.
After taking the stage at Afro Fest, Kothu Fest, Canadian Music Week, T-Dot Fest and the Culture Shock Block Party, the experience of Lexxicon’s live performances can be described as a powerful presence. The Toronto-based artist’s up-tempo hybrid sound comes from many influences of Sean Paul to Tory Lanez. His vision is to push the boundaries of hip-hop music, by blurring genres lines and adding his Jamaican background to his music.
Lexxicon is also an active member of Toronto’s creative community, founding a rising showcase series called AfroWave Toronto, that advocates for Dancehall, Afrobeats and Reggaeton representation in the local music scene. He attended Ryerson University and founded student group called RyeSWAT (now RyeRecords) for artists on campus to record an album (The Vision – Various ArtistsGenesis EP – Various Artists) and release music. In addition, he has worked with Ryerson’s Caribbean Student’s Association, United Black students at Ryerson, Poetic Exchange, and Psychology Student’s Association.
Stay tuned for more Lexxicon ahead of Bashment Trap House!
