Fresh off connecting with Goapele on “Freedom Love,” Rexx Life Raj is looking to release his new album, Father Figure 2: Flourish, next month.
“Typically a father figure is someone who gives game and wisdom in hope that it makes the journey easier for other people,” explains Raj. “These songs are grounded in feelings and life-experiences that I’ve been through and learned from. I want to share those with the world. It’s easy to rap about material things, i.e. money, jewelry, clothes, but it’s harder to be vulnerable and open about trials, tribulation, and emotion.”
Dropping November 17th, Father Figure 2 is led by the first single, the Mikos Da Gawd-laced “2Free,” which was released with a matching video that finds Rexx providing inspiration from Lake Merritt in Oakland.
“Shooting at the lake was significant because sometimes I find my self floating through my mind, on an undersized children’s canoe, in an ocean of irregular thought,” Raj says.
