With Rap music being so commercial it’s pretty hard to differentiate what's original. Urban News sat down with rap musician Lawd P, who is an upcoming rapper and entrepreneur based out of Brooklyn, NY. With Caribbean roots, and a strong musical background Lawd challenged himself to become a well-rounded artist, such as creating a lifestyle brand, and becoming a songwriter.
As New York City is one of the biggest marketplaces for music Lawd P fell in love with rap and grew apperception for R&B at such a young age. His brother showed him the ropes when he entered his first rap battle, of course, it was all fun and games but Lawd was addicted to performing. After many years of practicing music, he decided to take a leap with teaching the band at a public elementary school in Brooklyn. He’s always had a passion for helping the community.
Artistic creativity is self-taught but it can also generate from a team. The “Soullenial” movement is lifestyle brand and artist development management team founded by Lawd and his friends. ‘Soullenial’ means “we” redefine culture, which is also breaking the negative stigma about their generation. Although their brand represents music, they even sell their own merchandise!!! From hoodies, t-shirts, and hats they completely have it all.
