Brandon Harris: How did you come up with the name Hex Rated?
Hex: Well, Ive been going by Hex for years, I went by the name when I was a Graffiti writer on the streets so naturally kept the name when I began rapping, after my group NSN broke up I wanted to set myself apart and differentiate from was I was doing to what I am now. Faded and Hex Rated was a common saying when I was getting fucked up so it just made sense to go with Hex Rated.

Brandon Harris: How did you get into the music industry?
Hex: I kinda bullshitted my way in, I saw an add for beats for sale on Myspace back in 08 produced by Jason Porter, I bought it and he collabed on it, I had no idea what bars, dubs or adlibs were, Porter basically told me what needed to be done for a verse to sound good and I did it and I’ve never stopped fucking beats up since.
Brandon Harris: Tell us a little about LSP, as well as yourself?
Hex: LSP, Lyrikal Snuff Productionz consists of one of the most stacked rosters in the Industry consisting of Scum, Mastamind, Insane Poetry, Dark Half, Smallz One, Ikkuruz, Fiasco Andretti, Draztik myself and more. Majority of the artists currently reside in Colorado but many are spread thru out the country and we run this bitch!
