A former student at Kingston’s (now defunct) Fox Drama School, Mr. Lexx is an actor who has appeared in several plays and earned a Best Actor award in 1992. Mr. Lexx also joined the popular dance troupe Squad One but for the past seven years he has pursued a career as a deejay whose stage performances are enhanced by his experience in dance and theater.
Mr. Lexx first displayed his deejaying skills in 1992 at the popular Sunday night dances held in Kingston’s Harbor View area, featuring the Super Dee sound system. Representatives from The New York-based label Natural Bridge Records heard Lexx’s impressive lyrical flow and brought him to Kingston’s Mixing Lab recording studios where the 16-year-old recorded his first single, “Own A Home”, his tribute to women who aren’t dependent on men for financial support. Subsequent single releases including “Unification” and “Ghetto Man Slam” yielded little fanfare for the aspiring deejay but he persevered and in 1997 his efforts were rewarded with three hit singles, “Runaway Train” (X-Rated label), “Fade Away” (2-Hard Records) and “Boogie Woogie” for producers Steely & Clevie.
Lexx’s popularity lagged in Jamaica due to the time he spent abroad so he returned home in 1998 and reestablished himself through a series of stage shows, utilizing is acting and dancing capabilities to support his microphone skills at Kingston’s largest annual dancehall concert, Sting in December 1998 and the event marked a turning point in Mr. Lexx’s career. Many of the unknown songs Mr. Lexx performed at Sting became Jamaican radio hits while his performance in August 1999 during Montego Bay’s Reggae Sumfest Dancehall Night has amplified the Mr. Lexx buzz to a near deafening decibel! Attired in an outrageous leather outfit, Mr. Lexx energetically delivered a hit filled set which included his first #1 single “Get Wid It”, produced by King Jammy, “Yu Nah”, another #1 and his current smash “Cook” which humorously urges women to brush up on their culinary skills to keep their men happy; both tracks were produced by Steely and Clevie.
