Rexx Life Raj talks majoring in communications, starting therapy during the pandemic, and still doing deliveries for his parents in his new Tesla.
Been wanting to have Rexx Life Raj on the show for some years now and finally worked it out. The Bay Area native has a butter smooth delivery, intuitive sense of melody, and a plethora of range in topics and emotional depth. His latest release California Poppy 2 finds him releasing the sequel to his heralded 2018 tape. While that release found him collaborating with Bay legend E-40, the follow up welcomes New Orleans legend Juvenile to the party as well.
Raj started rapping in high school, when Berkeley High was bubbling with an immense amount of talent, but being a D-1 football prospect led him to college in Boise State. While athletics kept him busy from 5am to 9pm with workouts starting at 5:45 in the morning, he still found time to work on music whenever he could. Upon returning home to the Bay and writing raps while running delivery routes for his parents’ business, the music slowly but surely started to catch on. By the time his single “Handheld GPS” took off, he knew he’d found his path.
Tune in to hear us talk about majoring in communications, starting therapy during the pandemic, and still doing deliveries for his parents in his new Tesla.
