Daily Inspiration: Meet Lyrical Behavior

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lyrical Behavior.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I was born in Montgomery Alabama my mom (Regina Minor) fled the state and came to south Los Angeles because my dad started getting violent and aggressive and pointed a gun at her stomach. She hopped in her 1978 cocaine Cadillac and drove to California with loud tunes banging throughout the stereo. She arrived to my papa’s house in the Crenshaw District tired and drunk with beer cans spilling out the car while getting out. Growing up in Los Angeles for me and mom was actually rough. I remember moms use to play tunes and at about 2 to 3 years old I’ll either know the hook or verse by heart and if I didn’t know the lyrics I could sing the tunes in two years old language. At church, my mother decided to put me in the kid’s choir which turned out good because I can do both soprano and high notes which made me stood out a lot for solos and breakdowns.

In Elementary I use rap over the instrumentals my brother had downloaded in his phone at 2 am but it sounded terrible to me and at point, I cried. Music just kept calling my name. I never had my own room growing up so I used to watch 106 and park and put myself in that there in as if I was the artist. Being depressed personal situations and past deaths connected me to a spirit in music I never thought I had. It was like I discovered a hidden gem that sparked creativity. By middle school, I did talent shows and taught myself poetry by just speaking my cautious until I fell asleep. I got discouraged once I started making music on SoundCloud because nobody tapped in and reposted my music. Over time by 11th grade, I found my voice and sparked attention. Snoop Dogg Donated Equipment because he heard I wanted to push forward a music program since Crenshaw High School Didn’t have one. It was hard throughout those times in my life at the same time and I feel that’s what made me into the lyrical monster I am today. People talked about me tried to bully me and I felt that only made me stronger in music.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road wasn’t smooth at all actually it’s still bumpy but not as rocky as before I had up and downs throughout my music career regarding trying to discover my sound not knowing I was versatile the whole time. Certain peers around me use to talk down on my music and treated it like a video game. Even the engineers at the studio didn’t take me serious either; the vocals on the song was trash which was one of the reasons why I couldn’t discover my voice at the time or they’ll reschedule over and over again. Everything became less blurry once I went to Little Rock, Arkansas for school. At that point, I took a break in music until I discovered my stepdad Albert Matthews was dead in his apt the whole time I was stuck in Little Rock wondering why he didn’t book my greyhound ticket back to la. Once I returned and got the news my mental changed as depression build and I took that energy and through it in my music and it’s never been the same since. I just got better over the years at that point. I felt as if dead relatives and close friends that wasn’t here anymore were speaking through me. So here I am now.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m very creative; it’s easy for me to make something out of nothing. My passion growing up was art which I compared to real life and the simplest things gave me art vibes. I love fashion and the reason for that Is around 6th grade someone stole me and my mom’s clothes out of our car parked in our driveway. People donated clothes to us and at that point, she wasn’t dressing me up anymore so I started to put anything together and created a look which brought me compliments at school. The Vision that I can bring to life sets me apart from others instead of halfway creating a piece of art or song I’ll rather get every detail to make sure what I visualized is correct so the difference between me and them could stand out.

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
I can see myself in the position where Jack Harlow or Kodak Black is. Maybe even Young Dolph Independent Wise. The Visuals Of My Music Always Gotten Better Over The Years And It’s Gonna Be Like A Movie So I’m Sure I Can Attract Attention. The Trend isn’t hard for me to follow usually I’ll just set different trends to stand out more I’ll rather be a leader than a follower.
