Hitting it big with feisty hip-hop singles that brim with confidence and unapologetic candour, 14-year-old rapper, Alex Bruce, has cemented herself as a prolific young talent, releasing her self-titled debut EP!
The 5-track EP is full of playful tunes that celebrate life, adolescent love, and being a young girl trying to make her way into the cutthroat and competitive hip-hop music landscape dominated by men.
While anchored in crossover bangers and hook-laden jams, Alex finds new compelling ways to incorporate different music genres and elements, with influences that range from trap to soul, lo-fi hip-hop to reggae, and boombap to contemporary R&B.
In terms of lyrics, Alex doesn’t follow a specific writing style or narrative format. “I just write wherever my pen takes me to,” the young artist shares. “Every song I wrote has its own story to tell and that depends on how I’m feeling during the process.”
The EP feature single ‘Dime Girls’ puts her brilliant personality on full display, the breakthrough rap star encourages women of all backgrounds, to uplift each other and challenge patriarchal bias. “Giving in isn’t an option,” Alex Bruce insists. “Women are the bosses.”
