A-LEX-ANDER THE GREAT "LEXtras II"

Ok, I won't be available to upload this at midnight like I wanted to so... Swords Up! Recordings & A-LEX-ANDER THE GREAT presents to you "LEXtras II"... Enjoy!

"You're No Good (Cut You Loose) Freestyle" (Improv Promo Video)

While recording song for the "LEXtras II" project. I managed to get 2 of my bestfriends, whom I've known for almost 2 decades, in a studio session at the same time. Ryteous (featured on "I Got Next" on LEXtras II, "1-2, 1-2 [US to UK]" on LEXtraterrestrial, and "I Won't Fail" on LEXtraterrestrial II) and Toki, formally known as Frostie (featured on "Got Me Open" and "Jonathan Blaze" on LEXtras II, "718-732" on LEXtraterrestrial, and "Lightning" on LEXtraterrestrial II), only met once in my studio years ago in 2009 while I was working on "LEXtraterrestrial II". They have never met prior to that. Although I have both doing voice-overs, adlibs, etc on one of my favorite tracks off of LEXtraterrestrial II called "Narration" (a real dope story track, check it out when you get a chance), they weren't in the studio at the same time during that specific recording. Well, I say all that to say I had to cease the moment of both of them together in the studio (which has happened again since because Toki finally move to NY *hand claps* lol after going all across America). We were sippin vodka the entire time, recording, chillin', etc. I wanted to shoot a quick one-take rooftop video with them, but didn't have anyone to hold the camera *insert crying Jordan face* lol so I just set the phone up and shot something so everyone can fit in the frame and this is the result... Enjoy!

"LEXtras II" Album Cover & Tracklisting

Here is the project covers and tracklistings for "LEXtras II". I was aiming to release the project on Halloween, but found a few track I wanted to record and add the the project. So between that and mixing, editing, and finalizing the entire project, I had to push it back a few days. Trust me, it was worth the wait.
