On the Record with LE$
Finally LE$ aka le dollar one of the greatest rappers gave “On The Record” some time to interview him. While he was asked that how he did enter the music world, he said, “just being in a room with a bunch of my partners and they played music and I thought that I can do it too. I was in the band in high and I played drums since I was really young. I had my own studio and I started playing better than all of my partners, so did my friends, therefore they motivated me to do it on bigger level.”
He further stated about his journey, “I thought maybe it was my background that had made me this way, both my uncle and my dad came to the same school and joined in the same band in different times. It was like the family tradition. My father also played the bass guitar therefore I used to be at Frankie Beverly maze concerts. I got inspiration”
LE$ added about his initial financial crisis that, “It was before Katrina and my growing up. I came from the ninth ward. It was just like if you don’t get out you’re goanna be there but it really wasn’t better here because I had a lot of family there. I was staying there but then eventually I couldn’t afford it. So I just got out here and stayed out.”
While asked about his initial rapping LE$ said that, “I decided to take it serious when I did my first mix tape. I bought my own CD burners got my own covers pressed up. I handed them out my whole project. I thought that it might go in the right hands and I might get my big break, luckily DJ Mr. Rogers happened to see my work. We did a mix tape together.
While talking about his early days he said, “I’ve been blessed to work with a lot of people like; Bun B, Slim Thug, Chamillionaire, Mac Miller, Don Kennedy, Big K.R.I.T.
When he was asked about his future plans, he said, “I’m goanna be real straight, there are a lot of good artists out there. I’m willing to work with any of them. More or less I did that today. But its not going to be freestyle anymore” in advising tone he said, “Right now you can put out a freestyle on the internet and it’s going to come and go in a day, just make it a little bit more presentable with more.”
LE$ said that, “Even now I really don’t put a lot of thought while making music that what other people think about it because, world is nothing you know what it might do or be worried. Back in my struggling days I just did my thing. But when you have no expectation you’re not thinking business wise and you’re not thinking what this is going to do with lane. what kind of song You got to make that’s when you do your best because you’re not worried about what everybody’s going to think it’s a blessing in my situation.”
LE$ also discussed things about his car his life style and about his dog as well. But most importantly he said that he liked to smoke weed, drive his cars and listen to the beats
