I actually wasn’t gunna promo anything else off of this joint because most of the joints on that project were released/heard a long time ago, but I figured hey, it’s all about branding A-LEX-ANDER THE GREAT, not a specific project I released, right? Some of y’all haven’t heard either one of these songs nor the other 4 on the project so… Enjoy. Now you have a visual for them both. Hope ya’ll like.

"Swords Up! Anthem"



CLICK HERE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD OF THIS SONG


This joint right here is one of my favorites! It was produced by Daniel Benzino (same cat that produced "C'mon!"). I'll take credit as Co-producer tho, because I had to make such a heavy amount of editing for it to come out as what you hear. I like this joint because it has so many different feels to it... It got that South feel do to the chopped & screwed portion of the hook. Yet, I flip the flow midway between both verses from East Coast to Midwest flow (listen to understand what I mean). Just figured I'll do something different because this element was missing from the project @ the time while cooking up "LEXtraterrestrial II: LEXtended Play" (http://tinyurl.com/LEXtraterrestrial). Well, hope you enjoy...

"So Attached"


"So Attached" by A-LEX-ANDER THE GREAT
Click here for FREE download.



This track (beat) was actually giving to me in like '07 or '08 I can't even remember. It was produced by Mz DQ. I always loved it, but never wrote anything to it until about 2009-10. This is a dope love song. In the days of every song about ladies being all about "Poppin' it and bussing it open", a nigga like me still like writing something smooth for the ladies so... Enjoy!

"Take Off!"

A-LEX-ANDER THE GREAT "Take off!" from A-LEX-ANDER THE GREAT Click here for FREE download.


This is the lead single off of the "LEXtraterrestrial II..." project. Produced by Nick "Hoodfamous" Lalli (for Hoodfamous Productions), this track was given to me mid-2010. I loved the beat so much that I pretty much started writing immediately. I finished it and sat on it until now. This track def brings it's own energy to the table, and when blended with the bars of a dope emcee such as myself, it's bound to have am LEXplosive result... Enjoy!

A-LEX-ANDER THE GREAT "I Do This" (featuring Gully Time)



Produced by Asim "Paradox" Chaudhry

CLICK HERE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD OF THIS SONG

This track was giving to me @ the end of 2009, yet I didn't write or record to it until about the middle of 2010. It didn't make the cut for the "LEXtraterrestrial II..." project and I found myself sitting on it, until I decided to put together the "LEXtras" (Promotional EP). This gave me the option of getting the song out along with putting a brand new joint on the EP since all the other songs were previously released (before I decided to put them all on one promo project)... Enjoy!



Off of "LEXtras" available now FREE @ http://TinyUrl.com/LEXtras The promotional prelude to the forthcoming "LEXtraterrestrial II: LEXtended Play" dropping Sept 26th!! Get them now, because these songs will NOT be on the "LEXtraterrestrial II..." project.

CLICK HERE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD OF THIS SONG


This track right here was written/recorded in the Fall of 2010... Beat prod by Manykz (Same dude who made the beat for "I'ma Ride"). This track right here gets me amp'd. It's my approach to all things in life. Can't nothing stop me... You got something you tryna do in life (regardless of what it is) you can apply this track and make it ya anthem! And as you already know the bars are crazy as always so... I just figured I'll release it because I have put anything out in like forever... smh Hope you enjoy. I'll probably rewrite this entry later because I'm on a time restraint now, but anyway... Enjoy! Don't forget to hit me with ya honest feedback. It's always appreciated.
