Lenny 'The Ox' Reece

The Lesson GK, DJ Premier, Gentei Kaijo

Heavily influenced by 90’s hip-hop giants such as Finsta Bundy, DJ Premier, Slum Village, Basement Khemist and Shadez of Brooklyn, NYC native Lenny “The Ox” Reece piggybacked off likened styles to communicate his own experiences through music. Lenny’s relationship with the drums is a kinship, a vessel for which much of his feelings, interactions and major life events have been channeled. The Ox is best known for his unconventional, and sometimes controversial, “glitchy” style anchored by a strong back beat. Lenny’s mainstream success includes touring Music Director and/or drummer to: Jeremih, Demi Lovato, DJ Premier, Run DMC, Lunchmoney Lewis, M.O.P, Kimbra, Joey Bada$, Terror Jr. and SuperDuperKyle. Lenny’s greatest personal accomplishment is forming and leading The Lesson GK. The vibrantly eclectic 7-member group’s live performances are mostly improvised that create a raw, alive experience; their overarching sound is often described as experimental hip-hop and progressive soul. The Lesson GK’s debut album is set to be released Summer 2021.
