An artist well known for her dynamic flows, aggressive stage presence and elaborate story-telling, Lex Leosis is loud, opinionated, constantly fighting for what she believes in. She’s got an attack in her flow, a finesse in her lyricism and a hunger in her vocal tone. Her family gave her traditions, Toronto shaped her, and California helped form her sound.

Growing up in Toronto's West End with a single mother who worked around the clock taught her discipline, hard work and survival. It gave Lex the energy to perfect her craft, grow her career and exchange stories with artists from all over the world. From humble beginnings, Lex first found a home in hip-hop and rap competitions and cyphers. She met a number of creatives through online rap communities and has dropped everything multiple times to join her peers in cities all over the U.S. to collaborate, make music and perform.

Spending most of her time in the Bay Area of California, Lex has allowed her traveling influences to expand her music sound and capability. Lex has spent much of the past two years devoting herself to the growth of her hip-hop group, The Sorority. The group made waves with a 2016 International Women’s Day Cypher, and since then have released a debut album to critical acclaim, and toured Canada multiple times, sharing festival stages with many great artists. Lex has been hard at work developing her own music infusing her multiple inspirations, Greek identity, and personal history with her own flavor.
