About The Album

“Black Tears And Smiles” is a children’s Hip-Hop album that allows students, educators, and families the opportunity to hear a teacher speak with the perspective of a Black man that has thrived in a society often made difficult for Black men and Black boys. Though there are many references to identifying as a man, there are also themes of the importance of family, respecting women, self-identity, relationships, grief, the power of music, uplifting the youth, mass incarceration, and more. Pulling from many local and widely-known inspirations, L.E.X spills out various emotions to breathe life into a population often dehumanized. Laugh, cry, dance, sing, and use this album as a talking piece for everyone. Young or old. Dreams Start Young…
