Rexx Life Raj Releases "Father Figure 3: Somewhere Out There"
Rexx Life Raj has released his highly-anticipated new album, Father Figure 3: Somewhere Out There, today through all streaming and digital platforms. Marking the third instillation in Raj’s “Father Figure” album series, the new album features an impressive list of collaborations including Kehlani, Bas, Jay Prince, Sango and more.
The genre-fluid artist has already been generating critical praise from a handful of early track releases featured on the new album. August’s “Moonwalk” was produced by Kenny Beats and recently featured on NPR’s “Heavy Rotation: 9 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing” list, touting Raj as “a thoughtful lyricist…” who “…fluidly switches from soulfully sung meditations to double-time rhymes that brim with a fiery bravado.” His most recent single “Your Way” featuring Bay Area songstress Kehlani, was featured on Hypbeast’s coveted “Best New Tracks” list.
On November 11th, Raj will kick off his national headline run in Boston, and wind through the U.S. for the remainder of the month. Prior to his recent Rolling Loud appearance, KQED wrote: “Berkeley's Rexx Life Raj is a streetwise wordsmith with the voice of a gospel singer and the political awareness of a Black Panther.” This observation steps from the unique upbringing that has shaped this genre-bending artist’s story. Raised by a god-fearing mother and a Black Panther father in the mecca of progressive politics, Raj's music perfectly articulates the beauty and struggle of being a young, African-American adult in 2019.
Raj’s unique style has seen him garner high praise from legends such as E-40, Scott Storch and Pharrell. Raj is also a frequent collaborator with modern superstars like Kehlani, Russ, G-Eazy, Lecrae, Mozzy and more. His releases have been featured prominently on the front page of Apple Music, in Spotify's most popular hip hop playlists, and virtually all DSPs, all thanks to his ever-expanding fan base.
