Recently, Rexx Life Raj joined Goapele on a remix of her fan favorite single, “$ecret,” and now the West Coast songstress returns the favor by teaming with the Bay Area rapper/singer on his new release, “Freedom Love.”
Regularly spitting bars, this time around Rexx aims for the heart and soul, as he delivers his thought-provoking tale about letting love go free. Goapele adds a dynamic female viewpoint through intoxicating and soul-stirring vocals.
“I used to fall asleep with ‘Closer To My Dreams’ on repeat so having actual music with Goapele almost feels like I never woke up,” Rexx Life Raj explained to MILK. “So if I am dreaming, please don’t wake me up, bb. Kyle Betty and I had been working on this track and were looking for the perfect feature. I wanted a warm, female voice but didn’t know Goapele at the time. A few weeks later, I noticed that she had followed me on twitter, which blew my mind, so I reached out to her and voilà. She gave it exactly what it needed plus more. I’m forever grateful.”
The son of a Black Panther and a former athlete in Boise State’s Division I football program, Rexx Life Raj was the first of his family to graduate from college. Following the release of his debut album, Father Figure, in 2016, Rexx garnered co-signs from the likes of Pharrell and G-Eazy, and collaborated with the likes of Mozzy, Russ, Nef The Pharaoh, Murs, ymtk, and others. on “Moxie Java.”
