Artist Interview: L.T. AkA Lawrence Taylor
Tell us about yourself and your music
My name is Lawrence Taylor from New Jersey I’m 22 years old that has a passion for music so much. My music started as listening to Anita baker and all of the 80s music as R&B. I started rapping when I was in the fourth grade and when people started say that “that I can rap” I took it further and more serious.
Talk to us more about your latest release
Hallelujah is the latest release from the Album Amen 3: Closure it’s pretty much a record that HIPHOP is stil alive and also I’m talking about overcoming the streets and being blessed that I am here today to tell my story to others and show them that it is a better of doing things.
What inspired you to write this release?
The person who inspired to go write this was my sister Nita who passed I heard her all the time saying “Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah thank God” so I took it and that’s how the song came about it.
Any plans to release a video?
Yes we are releasing a video for it sometime in the spring we are trying to get everyone involved in this video trying to set the tone right.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes I do have plans to hit the road hopefully summer time I know down south and west coast where I want to my music to for sure but I’m going to have to sit down my team and we will have that discussion later on.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
Um pretty much stay the same never change up and follow the trend because lyrics still matter once you follow the trend everyone expects you to do that same exact sound and sound like everyone else.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Logic, Push’s-t The whole TDE, J.cole and of course Wale I’ve just been listening to a lot of artist
Tell us about your passions
What gets me out of bed every morning is the next door neighbors. They are super loud.
What else is happening next in your world?
Next I have a mixtape and another album dropping after the mixtape. So much to do with little time. So I’m working behind off so I can have the success to take us to the next level.
