New Music: L3XDIVINE – “Colorism”


Las Vegas-based rapper L3XDIVINE dives into the complex topic of “Colorism” in her latest single.

When speaking on the matter, for LEXDIVINE being a black Christian woman, she finds it to be “a complicated mixture of emotions.”

“Trying to decipher if my believing brothers see light skinned women as the catalyst of beauty or if it’s a preference, has shifted the thoughts and esteem of some of my darker believing sisters around the world (including myself),” she stated. 

“Colorism is one of the many dysfunctions/strongholds in the Church (The Body) and due to a few of my experiences, it inspired me to address this topic. Introspectively in the second half of the song, I release a prayer that unveils my desire for an ordained companionship while recovering confidence from the many lies I’ve faced due to this issue.”

The single is produced by KiingR and is from her free December 2016 project Double Up.
