Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Alexis Renee has released the mixtape “Varsity.” The 10 track project, presented by Coast 2 Coast Mixtape Promotion, is now available for download and streaming.
Alexis Renee hails from Tulsa, Oklahoma. She began releasing music in high school as a hobby and after deciding to take her career seriously at the age of 20, moved to Atlanta for more opportunities. Alexis enrolled in the Art Institute of Atlanta, but after one semester she left to pursue music full time. She began networking, recording, and hustling, while living in a tiny, one-bedroom apartment with no furniture just studio equipment and air mattresses.
After an unexpected audition for BET’s 106 & Park Freestyle Battle, she was chosen to appear live on the show. Her plan was to be on the show for all seven weeks, but she lost her first battle.
“I was so pumped,” recalls Alexis. “I just knew I’d be there for all seven weeks. I did decent, but I lost. How do you explain losing in front of four million people? It’s like, ‘you choked, you dropped the ball’. I felt like I killed my career before it even started.”
Despite this setback, Alexis’ fanbase inspired her to keep going. Since then, she has been booked for 106 & Park’s Spring Break Bash, and opened up for artists including Roscoe Dash, Dorrough, Bow Wow, Souja Boy, Lloyd, and Three 6 Mafia. Alexis credits her mother’s struggle of being a teenage mom as her motivation.
“I feel like I’m so close to success, that I can almost reach out and grab it. But it’s tough not being there yet. It’s a struggle, but this is what I want – I don’t miss a trip, a show, a studio session – anything,” says Alexis.
Alexis describes her sound as”contemporary hip-pop” which is a hip-hop with a melodic sound. Her music is filled with honesty and emotion. Keep up with all Alexis Renee updates by visiting her website.
