“In our early, early years, when we were little kids, we were trying to be like Jay-Z and rap in English”, Lxry said. “And then we realized, no we have to rap in our language. And we have to play in our own language.” Luxury Player has infused imported sounds with local legacies, moving beyond imitation to innovation. He often says it was Chris Kirubi motivations and Diddy’s work ethic that made him want to be a entrepreneur.
