Myafton Emerging artist: Gyasi (Jawsee) is my real name and LBXX (pronounced Lunch Box) is my stage name. I’m an up and coming queer pop rapper based in the Bay Area. Originally born in Long Beach, California but relocated to Buffalo, NY at the age of 10. Based in SF, LBXX’s flow is mixed with fresh rhymes, adds something new and unique to the scene. Born in the West and raised in the East, LBXX pulls from both sets of cultural roots that allows him to have a smooth flow and yet a powerful sound.
