Critically acclaimed artist Rexx Life Raj recently performed at Rolling Loud in Oakland, CA ahead of the release of his forthcoming album: Father Figure 3: Somewhere Out There.

Discovering his love for music by way of his church upbringing and the encouragement of his mother, Rexx Life Raj took the influences from the teachings from his father who taught him the beauty and challenges of being black as well as the value of hard work. In his youth, Raj endured the death of his best friend Devin as well as the incarceration of his close confidant Ronnie. Out of creativity, consciousness, and adversity were born the musical stylings of Rexx Life Raj.
