Lancey Foux has just dropped his sixth studio album, LIFE IN HELL, and it’s his most introspective project to date. The London-based musician — real Lance Omal — started his music journey rapping over YouTube beats in his bedroom as a young teen, before a close friend took him to the studio for his first session. Since then, life has been crazy, with runway appearances, Skepta co-signs and performances at some of the biggest music festivals in the world.

With this in mind, his new project comes hot on the heels of this last single release “All Night Long” which is a trippy, trap-leaning effort with Auto-Tuned melodies throughout. And while the whole album is a lot more of the same, LIFE IN HELL shines upon Foux’s progression — not just as a musician, but as a person, too.

Album highlights come in the form of the project opener “SPIRIT OF X2C” and it takes gospel inspiration to talk about love affiliations while also exploring the turbulence that life brings when living the life he does. The 22-tracker also comes with a variety quick-fire lyricism and the occasional nod to iconic grime MCs that set the foundations for him to come through with his polished, yet uncouth sound.

Lancey has also kept the production credits fairly close to home with the likes of BallyShaun, GoBrazy, BnyxJay, Trench, and Benjamin Saint Fort taking control of the buttons.

You can take a look at the “SPIRIT OF X2C” visuals above and be sure to stream LIFE IN HELL in its entirety below.
