Interview by @noritabango

Where are you from and where are you now?
I was raised in Los Angeles where I currently reside.

How did you get started in the music industry?
I started as a dancer for other artists. Then it turned to artist development for artists. At that point I decided to develop myself as my own artist. Devine Evans locked me in a recording studio for almost a year until i found my sound. I then dropped my first project currently on iTunes “The Adventures of Lex Lu”

What artists or producers have you worked with throughout your music career?
As a dancer I worked with Jennifer Lopez, Missy Elliot, Shakira, Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West to name a few. Musically i’ve worked with producers/artists such as B SLade, Devine Evans,Y2, Shock Lion, Derek, Morten, Mateo Laboriel, Girl Crush, Anjelia, Roshon, Molly Mawlz, David Sebastian, Mister Mex, Rome Fortune, Noize Beatz, Big D, Scraps Slaps, Track Martians, K Theory, Verbs The Homie, IAMXLOVE, YS, Milli Milez, Blake, Curtis Bradford, and so many more.

What inspires you to make music? Who inspires you?
The need to be heard.The need to inspire. The need to release. All things that motivate me. I love the avenue of communication being an artist gives me. I get a platform to speak my mind. The person that inspires me the most is my Lil Lion Sebastian. The legacy I want to leave him is that he can be whoever he wants. That he can take any path he chooses. Living proof.

What are some of your greatest accomplishments?
I’ve been blessed to travel all over the world. I’ve pet lion cubs in Angola and held koalas in Australia . Moon danced with the Zulu tribe in South Africa and blew trees with Snoop in Amsterdam. Even with all that my greatest accomplishment is my Lil Lion.

Do you have new music coming out any time soon?
I’ve been cooking up new music all year and I’m close to finding my next single. My current visual “Watch The Crown” ft + prod by Y2 can be seen on Vevo.

What message do you want to get across to the younger generation?
Anything is possible… So dream. Then figure out your destination and grind till you get there. There is NO other way.
