LYLE OMOLAYO AND BIXOP
Negros Americanos/ Lyle Omolayo & Bixop
Negros Americanos is a tri-lingual hip-hop duo comprised of Lyle Omolayo and Bixop. In 2011, Negros Americanos formed in Panama City, Panama with the goal of making music to unite people. Hailing from Plainfield, NJ, Lyle Omolayo and his partner-in-rhyme Bixop began working on their craft making mixtapes in highschool.
Having realized that there had been a steady influx of latinos in the United States, in 2011, they, saved up money and spent the whole year living in the barrios of Panama to form Negros Americanos, a tri-lingual, hip-hop duo.
These two emcee/ songwriters are dedicated to improving the conditions and raising the bar in music, experimenting with international blends and exploring topics often overlooked or taboo in hip hop.
