On Oldies Sunday, we celebrate Icons, and the songs they have created. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we highlight a Palmer who has made great contributions to Dancehall. His mama named him Christopher and he started out as Lexxus, but the world now knows him as Mr. Lexx (Mr. Lex as well)! We go back in time to check out the track, “Full Hundred“.
Produced by Richard “$hams” Browne for B-Rich Records on the “Orgasm Riddim“, Mr. Lexx was all about living life to the fullest on “Full Hundred”. A song that was motivational, Mr. Lexx emphasized that whatever he was doing in life, he was going to give it his all, and you should too! Nothing but the best for Mr. Palmer. “Full Hundred” quickly gained popularity following its release, and was one of the top singles featured on the “Orgasm Riddim”, which also spawned a few hits. A music video was made for “Full Hundred” that gained mostly positive reviews, and was premiered on Jamaica’s “Entertainment Report” television programme in 2000. The track was featured on Mr. Lexx’s 2005 debut album “Mr. Lex“.
Since the release of “Full Hundred”, Mr. Lexx went on to enjoy a career that gained him a few more hits over the years. He found himself in a few controversies and even a few beefs, and dabbled in Radio and Television as a Media Personality, but he remains one of the more entertaining names today, and thanks to Social Media, he has gained an audience that continues to grow. He is also watching the rise of Recording Duo The Yutes, who happen to be his sons. “Full Hundred” remains one of his most well known singles.
THANK YOU MR. LEXX FOR THIS HIT!
