Being a California kid and infusing a new sound into the south may be a seemingly difficult
task. But to Young Lyxx it is all too natural. His early acquaintance with the music industry,
numerous years of recording experience, a refreshingly pure talent, his love of music, and
unbridled hard work makes Young Lyxx confident that he will be able to accomplish this
mission.

Lennix Nelson Rogers Jr. (Young Lyxx) was born on August 16, 1989 in San Diego,
California. He grew up listening to the popular sounds of the late 80s/early 90s. His family
moved to New Orleans when he was just 6 years old, but this move would prove to be instrumental
in his development as a rapper. He was first introduced to the music known as
bounce by placing his ear to the door of his older cousin, Yorri Berrys, bedroom and listening
to her rap original work in the late hours. Soon after, Lyxx began writing original work of
his own.

At age 11, Lyxx and his parents returned to San Diego, California. Music, always
his first love, made room for a second love, basketball. During off-season, Lyxx worked diligently
on his first recorded CD. He was hooked on being in the studio. By age 13, he was
introduced to the stage for the first time, rounding off his experiences. The overwhelmingly
positive feedback confirmed his suspicion that this is what he was born to do. He began to
pursue music, vehemently. Recording on computer mics served as good practice for what
was yet to come.

At age 16, Lyxx linked up with other artists. Their first professionally mixed
song was entitled, Wait A Minute where he was featured with Aaron TaEa$t Evans and Cairo
McGee. The three clicked and eventually brought Mark Chicago Beard into the operation.
Lyxx worked on an album recording with friend, James jBoy Daniels(anup and coming producer
from Oceanside, California).jBoyintroduced Lyxx to Pro-Tools. From there Lyxx picked
up his own unique recording habits. Lyxx acceptance to Clark-Atlanta University forced a
move to the Peachtree state. Juggling the demands of college, a thriving social life, and a
rap career was made a little easier because of:

• the mentorship he received from rapper and former NFL player Reggie Famouz Stephens,

• his work ethic instilled by his loving parents Lennix Sr. and Kim

• his sheer determination to succeed,

• the constant study of his craft Young Lyxx states, being perfect is impossible, but I want to be as close as I can get.

Lyxx plans to introduce a new sound to the industry and with a successful mixtape (Rosaries
On The Dresser), climaxing to 1M+ plays on Myspace, from being the first artist to ever
do their own in-store concert at the New Era Flagship Store in Atlanta, GA., multiple shows
with other up and coming artist such as, B.O.B., J. Cole, Mickey Factz, Donnis, Big Krit,
Nefu Da Don, Wiz Khalifa, Pac Div, U-N-I, Dom Kennedy, Smoke DZA, Laws, and others, a
strong team behind him (Top Heavy U.), support from clothing lines such as Chilly-O, Fli
Pelican, Rock Smith Tokyo, and others, he is confident that his music is ready to be heard
by the discerning ears of the world. His musical impact in Atlanta has also caught the attention
of BROKE AND BOUJEE’s own “Fadia Kader.” Broke and Boujee is a five year old party
going strong between Atlanta and Chicago for some of the best musicians, artist, clothing
labels and “it” girls and boys.

“When I make my way into the game, Im bringing my bags to
settle in, because Im not going nowhere.” His enthusiasm topped off with talent makes all
those who have come into contact with him, BELIEVE that he is here to stay!
