The best way to describe Genolexis is that he is a: MUSICIAN; God fearing man; Inspirational Hip Hop Artist; A Father; A Son; and so full of spirit!
Originally from Brooklyn NY, Genolexis has played a vital role in Tampa Hip Hop since 2003, when he made his first appearance alongside his musical companion, Relic of "Relic Recordings" as one half of a duo titled, "Generel". With their album debut, "Face of the Public", Generel quickly started setting up the foundation for what would eventually become one of the most talked about underground hip hop artists around Tampa Bay. After the positive reaction which stemmed from the quality and sound of the "Face of the Public" album; the duo created their follow up sophomore attempt, "The Raincoat Album". Like their debut, Generel continued the formula of their previous project by supplying their own beats and concepts to showcase their versatility, while continuing to keep their positive message. In 2006, Genolexis and Relic (Generel) agreed to decide to go their own separate ways to pursue personal musical aspects on their own. Since the departure, Genolexis has continued to keep his foot in the game through collaborations with respected artists within the Tampa Bay area, revitalizing the audience with his energetic performances, continuing to stay grounded among the community through charity events and preparing to release his solo debut out to release in the Spring of 2009.
