LEX the Lexicon Artist is Taiwanese-American rapper, writer, and creator Alex Sun Liu. Plagued with self-repression, neurotic ambition, and delusions of grandeur, Alex created LEX in 2016 to shield polite society from her most socially unacceptable attributes, by redirecting them onto the stage instead. With a comically narcissistic persona and a domineering stage presence, LEX delivers surgically precise rapid-fire rap lyrics about nerd culture, personal identity, and the depths of the human mind. LEX is ugly and real, and speaks to the minds of misfits everywhere. A larger-than-life portrait and complete self-expression of one 5’4’’ Asian nerd, LEX is the freshest new rapper you’ll hear – “not in spite of being a nerd, but because of it.”

LEX has officially performed at anime, gaming, and technology conventions across the country, including MAGFest (Maryland), SXSW (Austin, TX), FanimeCon (San Jose), and Anime Expo (Los Angeles). Last year, she toured with rapper and former Adult Swim actor mc Chris.

Super Smack is on a mission to bring world peace through geeky hip-hop music. Fusing boom-bap, chiptune, trap, and jazz, Smack has earned the title “The Nintendo Switch of Rappers” for his vibrant style and knack for joy. He lives in New York City and is from Los Angeles, so both coasts are in his DNA. Smack has performed at SXSW Nerdcore Dayz, Brooklyn Comic-Con, and Off-Broadway. He’s an alum of Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal’s BARS WORKSHOP and also performs with the irreverent freestyle team NORTH COAST. His videogame-inspired album NEON RED is being released in Fall 2019.
