Artist Interview: “Universe Calling” by LEXA TERRESTRIAL

Q:  Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

”I’ve never been this committed to suicide, especially cause my friend just died” or “In a cage,
I’m the one, with the keys to the place. Only prison that I fear is the one in my mind”.


Q: Describe your sound in 3 words

LEXA TERRESTRIAL: Inimitable, melodramatic, entertaining

Q: You blend different genres in your music. Tell me a few things about your creative process.

It’s everything in my brain, my life & what I like into music
organized into certain sounds,
my diary
& going through my giant biblical sized Rhyme Book
from there I try to construct what I want to say around intresting flows, and keep adding or taking away from there.

Choruses are the easy part for me. Laying down a track, I have a certain little secret formula that helps me out.


Q: You released a full album. Do people still listen to full albums? What was your favorite album of the past decade?

Ooof… I don’t think my generation appreciates albums. It’s not like it used to be. Not only is music more fast food now, so it’s watered down by frequent singles… but also not many are putting out pieces of art. It’s oversaturated. The last Albums I really liked were probably back in 2017. I was a huge fan of J.Cole’s Album “KOD” was everything! It had a message and it was all inside of interesting beats. I liked Blackbears “Cybersex” Album… or “Digital Druglord” . They were AMAZING Albums. XXXTentacion’s Albums are like notes he left behind I feel… Like Diary’s. Jarren Benton’s “Grandma’s Basement” was so entertaining. 
This is what I find cool about Artists but it’s not like that anymore. Also other mention that isn’t so much Hip-Hop but the band the 1975 releases some amazing albums & one of my all time favorites is their self titled album “The 1975” as well as “I like when you sleep, for you are beautiful yet so unaware of it”.

Q: What does hip hop symbolize in your opinion?

LEXA TERRESTRIAL: Strength, but also a place to talk about your weaknesses; a place to fight the corruption in this world, a place for you to talk about what angers you. It’s in your blood and it helps you cope. 


Q: Any future plans?

LEXA TERRESTRIAL: Become one of the best female rappers in the world. Or die ;p
