The 20 year old Los Angeles by way of Arizona artist, LXST (pronounced “Lost”) has just announced the 4/9 release date for his forthcoming EP, Famous along with the EP’s title track. “Famous” was produced by Cxdy (Juice WRLD, Internet Money, Iann Dior) and frequent LXST collaborator, Jordan Knows. It’s a poppy and melodic song with a beaming guitar riff that rides smoothly over the syncopated claps of the 808. On the track, LXST reflects on the struggles that came along with his early success while expressing cautious optimism about overcoming youthful adversities on the path to stardom.
“need to sober up / can’t remember being faded / I don’t wanna die before I’m famous”
LXST is an independent rapper, singer and songwriter who’s built a dedicated fanbase and accumulated over 100 million streams since 2019. With the early success of his tracks “Last Time,” “Exhausted,” and “Sun Kissed,” LXST quickly became a recognizable name among artists topping the Soundcloud charts. Having initially begun creating music as an escape from his anxiety and depression, LXST was enthralled by the support and fans he gained with each new release. However, success and notoriety came along with new pressures and anxieties, a central focus on LXST’s upcoming EP, Famous.
