Notable Quotables
"Langston executes his words and music with a confidence and ease that cannot be taught."
-Lily Moayeri for LA Weekly
"Rhys Langston has mastered the art of weaving words to create singular feelings... Rhys’ delivery is teeming with conviction and understated swagger. He isn’t the Poet Laureate of the living room for nothing."
-Donna-Claire Chesman for DJ Booth
Langston’s multitudes come in waves, a staggering onslaught of heady metaphors, skewed pop structures, and precisely weighted punchlines.”
-Will Schube for Tablet Magazine
"He speaks for more than just himself."
-Samuel Diamond for TinyMixtapes

Rhys Langston is a rapper and multi-instrumentalist born, raised, and based in Los Angeles, CA.  Live in concert and recorded, his works are available in high-definition stereo and full-frontal honesty. As a performer he combines rap, singing, live beat effects, stand-up comedy, and avant-garde poetry into masterful, self-aware spectacles (cue the eye rolls).  As a recording artist, he largely self-produces, expertly engineering every facet of his music. Within his releases, his songs' concepts and sounds can range from crooning ballads about a failed relationship funneled through depressed jitters of caffeine to anthemic, 808-heavy take-downs of environmental racism (as a few light examples).

 

Consequently, he has earned kind nods from the LA Times, Spin, AFROPUNK, DJ Booth, HipHopDX, Tablet Magazine, Bandcamp, STEREOGUM, and other respectable outlets.

He remains the poet laureate of his living room, and has a higher vertical leap than your favorite rapper.
