Streets Mos Magazine held it’s 4.5, annual Street Conference January 12th at 125th Street’s National Black Theatre of Harlem, where Lexx9eleven was awarded the “Street Artist of The Year” title and received a substantial promotional package, one year’s worth of free advertising and the lead single off a compilation album being distributed and released through Legal Hustle Music Group/Koch Distribution later this year.
Among attendees to grace the theatre that day were Doug E. Fresh, Cappadonna of Wu Tang, Lady Elz of Don Diva Magazine, Lin Que of X Clan, Ness of the A-Alikes, NYOIL, Dame Grease, Will Roberson of Diggin for Brown and many more.
Celebrity lawyer, Bob Celestin, kicked off the conference with a brief lecture on the legal principles of establishing a career in the music industry. This was followed by the Female Rapper competition, in which a judge panel of 7 media professionals [including Lady Elz and Linque] named Young Nik the official winner.
A various cast of industry leaders and media personalities selected the winners of the following categories to be Tim Vocal for Rising Stars, Will Porter for Streets Representado and Gang America (Stevie B. Allstars) for Best Hip Hop Group.
Lexx9eleven, the official winner of the Jan 12th Street Conference says, “I’ve been a winner my whole life… but it feels good to win, I appreciate those who appreciate what I’m doing. There was a lot of hot artists in the building that day, so it’s definitely an honor.”
Lexx, who has been rapping professionally for 6 years has worked with such artists as The Game, The Outlawz, Naughty By Nature, ONYX and Kesha Cole to name a few. He has a mixtape on the streets right now called “Playing Dirty to Get Filthy Rich: King of Queens” [volume 2]. And he’s looking forward to tackling a lot of projects this year. He says, “Every time I drop something, you’re gonna feel it. Shoutout to ‘Queens the Movement!'”
