I’m excited about Lexii Alijai. I was introduced to the young Minnesota native earlier this year, when she appeared alongside Kehlani on her critically acclaimed mixtape, You Should Be Here. Spitting on the track “Jealous,” I was immediately intrigued by Lexii‘s delivery because of her coarse voice and no f*cks given attitude, and was even more intrigued when I saw on Instagram that she was a pint-sized pretty little thing! Definitely NOT what I pictured!
I’ve been keeping up with her ever since, and I’m pleased to finally have a full body of work from her with this weekend’s release, Joseph’s Coat. The 11-track project truly showcases Lexii‘s range, and she kept it simple with only 3 features: Elle Varner, Kane and bubbling West Coast artist/DJ Mustard signee, Shaun Sloan (who also happens to be Lexii‘s boyfriend.)
It’s hard to really get a scope of an artist when you’re basing them off of one 16 on a guest spot, and this project truly gives Lexii an identity. And I’m loving it! Stream Joseph’s Coat below and download the project here!
