FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- On the heels of the release of his newest single "You’re My Everything", Toronto rapper L.I.R.I.X. has released his latest mixtape, "Against All Odds", which is now available on iTunes.

"Against All Odds" features several of the hottest songs released by L.I.R.I.X. over the last 2 years including "Respect My Grind", "Lady Luck", "Faithful", "Shout It Out" and his latest, "You’re My Everything" with production from Krazy Jay, Aaron Wood, The Awesome Sound and Brian Moon, as well as Canadian producers Big Pops, H.I.T.S., Young K and Maine. It also features up-n-coming artists Rayhaan aka Ray Ray Malone, Staasia Daniels, Tenika Hamilton and industry veteran Kin Smuv.

"I was truly blessed to work with as many people as I did creating this record over the last 10 months. 'Against All Odds' is more then the title of my project, it's a mindset and a way of life. To me, if you work hard and push for your dreams you can make anything happen 'Against All Odds'," said L.I.R.I.X.

"I wrote 'Against All Odds' from the perspective that nobody knows who I am as an artist. I had the opportunity to travel and experiment with my sound, which helped with the direction and storyline of the project. My goal with this project was to create an eclectic sound that shows my growth as an artist and takes the listeners on a journey. I hope that 'Against All Odds' gives listeners some insight as to who I am and who I aspire to be."
