Lyrx – Pretty Cameras (Mixtape Ft. HUCCI, Griz, and More) [Free Download]

This one came out of nowhere to us! With original and complex lyrics and a unique cadence, Washington DC-based hip-hop artist Lyrx is somebody to definitely keep an eye on. He just released his first official mixtape which comes with 15 songs (and a bonus song that comes with the download) and production by HUCCI, Griz, Divided By Zero, and Dexter. My personal favorites are ‘Lyrx with a Y’ and ‘Mirrors.’

The kid’s story is unreal, catch it after the jump…

Long story short he didn’t start writing until three years ago when an Egyptian Christian prophet told him he had a gift for rapping while on a Christian missions trip through Europe – you can’t even make this shit up. Well the prophet may be on to something – the mixtape is catching major buzz and he’s recently scored opening acts for two of the biggest names in hip-hop: Rick Ross at Echostage and Chance The Rapper at American University!
