Earlier in the year, Queens emcee LEX (of underground rap group Sinistah Circle) joined Cole James Cash, Skyzoo & Eff Yoo for a street level brawl using intellect and exceptional lyricism on “Subway Fights.”
Outside of that single appearance, LEX has kept a very low profile, having appeared the previous year with a three-in-one video for “Doubt Me x Bad M’er F’er x Unplug,” while continuing to put the final touches on his Necessary EP — a follow up to 2014’s H.A.S.H?!: How About Some Hardcore?!.
With the arrival of the new EP, LEX tasks East New York’s Spit Gemz and J57 for “Inner Thoughts” which dips into the classic, grimey New York sounds which always seem to pop up in Fall — just in time for Timbs and Champion hoody weather.
