3375What/who inspires your music? (If different from above)

L.O.S  Well pretty much anything that I'm going through at the moment might inspire me to write a song or maybe something I see or somebody I might meet could inspire me to write. As for Artist I have a few that I look up to Pac, Rakim, Jay Z, Nas , Biggie, Eminem and a few others but one person that really made me step my game up was JadaKiss i felt like if i could spit as hard as he spits over a track i would be the one so if I had to pick a favorite Artist it would be him.

L.O.S  Absolutely I would like to get more programs up and going for the youth there were a lot of things to do when I was coming up that kept me busy and now there really isn't any thing for these kids to do a lot of after school programs have been cut a lot of little summer programs are not around anymore so I would definitely like to try and get something up and going for them.

3375  Are you trying to get rich?

L.O.S  Who isn' if people say they are not in the music business for money they are lying everybody what's to make their lives and the people around them lives better yeah I'm sure they have love for music just like I do but the money sure does make all the hard work and long hours feel a lot better.

L.O.S  I think the music industry as a whole meaning all genres will be fine music makes the world go round we need music to get us through our day or to celebrate a moment or to reminisce about past events music helps with all of that so music will always be here.

 3375  How do you think it will evolve/change?

L.O.S  Well you see it now people are getting more creative with their music and with the type of songs they put out. I feel like people are starting to pay more attention to the content of what the artist is saying and were the music is taking them. The Internet will continue to change everything I feel like soon Cd's will be completely fazed out. I also think that there will be a lot more independent movements rather then trying to get a big label behind them.

3375  Do you feel like the internet is helping you as an underground artist?

L.O.S  Yes I do it helps reach a market or people that I can't get to with out hopping on a plane and physically being there.
