LoFlash - Interview
Tell us your rap name and where you’re from?
• I go by LoFlash and I’m from Troy, NY
What made you start making music?
• Growing up I was always into listening to music. Knowing the words, hearing the beats, etc. I kind of always wanted to do something with music but was always caught up in a sport or trying to get some money. I made a decision to stop playing sports and take on rapping in 2017. The main reason behind me making music was just a outlet at first. Learning the craft of rapping, and just using it as a coping mechanism. People started to like my sound, and my friends told me start doing it 100%. So I did, and it’s been great since.
Who are your influences in rap?
• Lil Wayne, Mac Miller, and Wiz Khalifa are the top three artists that got me into music in the first place. I listen to a wide variety of music but I would always go back to these three. If I had to add one more the last one would be Juice Wrld.
What is your take on the underground rap scene right now ?
• The underground rap scene is great. I find new music everyday being in playlists, and group chats on social media’s. Don’t get me wrong there’s always some questionable stuff but I always respect everybody’s effort to try and do what they feel they like or love. What one person doesn’t like, the next 3 will. It’s a strong community I’d say where everyone’s growing in their own way, connecting and meeting new artist everyday due to social media.
What are your goals for 2020 regarding music?
• A couple of my goals for 2020 regarding music would have to be. Getting my last album to 10k on Spotify. Getting another video past 10k views on YouTube. Releasing a new video, and release a new single as well.
You have one person to thank, who would it be?
• If I have one person to thank it would have to be my grandmother.
What is your process for recording music?
• When I first started making music I would always listen to the beat, and then try and write my lyrics down in my notebook or my notes on my iPhone. I did that for a little bit and still do. I just recently started trying to freestyle and go into the booth with nothing but the beat and walk on it. It’s another craft or way of recording that I’d love to excel at.
Any up and coming projects or singles fans should be ready for ?
• As far as right now. There’s a single “Prada” that I just featured in. I have a single that’s about to drop, and a visual as well.
What have you been doing during COVID music wise ?
• During COVID I’ve been trying to perfect my craft any way possible. Gain knowledge. Learn how to mix and master. I’ve been listening to a lot of new beats, and try to stay in the studio as much as possible.
What impact do you want to have on the world ?
• My main impact I would want is to just let everybody know it’s okay to be different, have dreams your who you thought were “friends” don’t believe in, to go through multiple tough times but still be able to some how get back on track with your dreams, and most importantly. Pray and believe in the one and only.
What’s your best collaboration with another artist or producer?
• I’ve had a few of them in 3 years. The best one that’s came out is out everywhere right now would have to be my feature with Cass.
Who does all of your cover art or do you make your own?
• I tend to have two or three people I like to do my cover art but recently my girl has been showing me more about photoshop, Lightroom, etc. So I started to try and make my own covers at the same time as well for future purposes.
Who makes most of your beats or production?
• Majority of my beats are made by my boy I knew from high school (DJPRODUCTIONS) and majority of my music is mixed and mastered by BChaps.
What can we expect next from you?
• Content, content, and more content. Single, visual, EP maybe even a deluxe.
