SelFex, whose real name is Samir, is a french hip hop recording artist, singer and songwriter from Lyon.
His passion for music began at an early age as he wrote his first lyrics at the age of 12 before American Hip Hop culture defines his way to express his music a few years after.
Listening to artists such as Nas, 2pac, Jay-Z or Outkast, aroused his curiosity in understanding lyrics.
At the end of 2012, he started working on his own projects, recording a mixtape called M.I.N.D (My Inspiration Never Dies), which is now his signature name. This allowed him to make collaborations and concerts : he was on stage with people like DJ Karamelo, the drummer U-Tank and made the first part of Foesum concert in Lyon.
In 2014, SelFex decided to explore new cultures and moved to Toronto, Canada, where he spent one year. That journey inspired him in the making of a new album called « Shade In The Rear View », released December 2016. Based on his own experience and according to his vision on this life this project is nothing but freedom through a passion.
Samir has already teamed up with different artists such as Lawless (Producer), Wary (Singer & Producer) & Abel (Producer) and is always looking forward to work with new people on his upcoming projects.
