“My biggest inspiration is my momager because she gives back to the youth and teaches us to love, help, and care for others.”
Check out the interview with Bad Girl Le’Le exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Bad Girl Le’Le: I was raised in the Bay Area spending my elementary years in both Richmond, CA and Hayward, CA. I was mostly an excellent student and immediately took a liking to music, dancing, and singing at a very early age. By the age of seven I danced on stage with Bay Area singer Goapele. I was absolutely a natural performer. From that day forward it was clear that I was destined to be a star.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Stay dedicated to your art gift and talents and believe you can do anything.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
A hard task for me is coming up in this male dominated industry of rap and setting the bar high for some of these rappers today. Making all my fans happy.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Social media is the greatest tool to get your music heard and played. Networking with other artists, magazines, radio, etc. Not to mention I’m an award winning hip hop recording artist. I am also nominated for 4 Awards on May 27th at the Northern California Entertainers Music Awards Show at the Crest Theater in Sacramento, CA.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My city Richmond is kinda rough and violent. The artists here grew up hard and the one’s that do support me have been amazing. I truly love all my fans that I call #TeamLeLe, they are family.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I see myself being global, travelling the world putting out good music for all to vibe to all while acting in movies.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspiration is my momager because she gives back to the youth and teaches us to love, help, and care for others. I also cherish Tupac and his mom Afeni Shakur. She was at a show in Richmond and after my performance she gave me a standing ovation and a big hug and told me I remind her of a female version of her son.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
The music today is cool, a lot of garbage out, but it can be fixed with a lot of work and effort into it. I like all kinds of music if it moves my feet and soul.
