Lex Leosis is an overwhelmingly cheerful and charismatic presence among any line of fellow emcees, but make no mistakes, she is anything but chipper on the microphone. Her roots in the competitive world of slam poetry and rap come out in her fierce and abrasive lyricism, and that competitive drive has already given her a notable spot in the Toronto undergound scene. The Toronto-native emcee and spoken word artist was part of the first Toronto Poetry Slam team, the first-ever Canadian team to compete at Brave New Voices in 2011, and since moved on to release three consecutive mixtapes, as well as a decorated career in rap competitions. She has taken both the online and local community by storm, playing 100s of shows, touring the west coast of the United States, and generating millions of views. Recently, Lex Leosis was featured in TeamBackPack’s International Women’s Day Cypher, hosted by 40z Heroes. This cypher received high praise from top Hip Hop blogs around the world, including Nosiey, The Fader, Hype Machine, and Boi-1da.
