The Moroccan Lounge had a different energy the other night with rappers Lex Leosis and Snotty Nose Rez Kidz took the stage. What a show.
The opener for Snotty Nose Rez Kidz, Lex Leosis is a Toronto native and female hip-hop artist. Not knowing much of her music, I was intrigued when she came out on stage. Leosis’s stage presence was very infectious along with her smile for her passion. Performing her songs like “Won’t Wait”, “Wanted”, “PULL UP” and others were definitely what I had to add to my going out playlist. It makes me think of a post-break-up bad bitch phase to put it. She did an amazing job and definitely surprised me with her rapping skills. I would highly recommend her for that bad bitch phase or a night out in the town.
The lights dim and the crowd hypes up. The duo Snotty Nose Rez Kidz, consisting of Darren "Young D" Metz and Quinton "Yung Trybez" Nyce, come out and start up their set. Bouncing around each other and rapping their lyrics along with the crowd. I will say, this has to be one of the most energetic crowds I’ve seen at this venue. The most memorable song of the night for me was “Sink or Swim”. The crowd was going crazy, the strobe lights were going and the duo was yelling over the crowd. This song gives me nostalgic teen angst mixed with the current form of angst in the world. They even brought out the song’s featuring artist, Just John. They give off a suicide boys-type beat while making it their whole own sound. I can hear their songs in clubs or in some genres of films.
