Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
Sex Trap (The Lust God): I began my journey at 11 by writing the lyrics to my favorite songs and I wrote my first song at 13. I have some formal training, but my vocal ability is self-taught. I started my first artist developmental company called Purple Heart Entertainment in 2007. I housed a team of six artists, three models, and a production team with photographers, producers, engineers, etc. I put the company down in 2011 to pursue a more profitable endeavor.
