Alex Lee, MC for the local band Le Vice, doesn’t think its self-titled debut LP should be labeled as a hip-hop album.
“It’s is not a hip-hop record; it has an ’80s tinge to it,” Lee says. “It’s not an Alex Lee record or an A. Lee record; it’s a Le Vice record. I’m just the front woman in a band with really good musicians.”
Though there are some hip-hop elements on the album, it’s really a Technicolor mash-up of everything from Blondie to David Bowie to dance-pop.
