“First I will say stay in school, and if you have a dream, don’t let no one stop you from achieving your goal or dream.”

Check out the interview with Lil Prophet exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

SKILLY: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
L.P: Well, it all started when I was about four years old in school doing an African poem, and my mother and father noticed I had a good memory. So my father started writing poems for me and that’s how the journey started.

What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
First I will say stay in school, and if you have a dream, don’t let no one stop you from achieving your goal or dream.

What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Trying to stay focus with music and school at the same time.

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 best way to advertise your music.

Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Chicago is a wonderful and beautiful city. The news always talks about the bad side of the city. We have good supporting fans and we have a lot of artists here with awesome talent.

Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I see myself more popular with a bigger fan base.

Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
First I say my parents and then with music I will say ice cube, jay z, common just to name a few.

How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
It’s 50/50 with me. I like some and some I don’t like.
