We had the good fortune of connecting with London Da Rapper and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi London, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I don’t look at being an artist is a business. It’s a passion, I love music, I’m in love with Hip Hop. It lights my soul when I perform. Then again “ This is a business, and I love everything about it. I’m not stopping until I achieve every goals. It’s a process
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What set me apart from others is that I’m Consistent, I won’t stop until it completed. For an example, I use to be a party promoter, and my first event in Arizona didn’t go well. I only had 10 people there. Most people will say that’s a failure, to stop and don’t give no more events.I look at it as a challenge, if it sameslike Im losing, I quickly get into beast mode, it’s becomes a game to me. A game that I’m determined to win and I will win. After 10 times trying, I had 1000 plus people at my event.
Never giving up, not looking at every rapper.looking in the mirror I’m my own Competition.
No it wasn’t easy, its hard being a woman in this industry. Others feel like i shouldn’t be here.People has use my name for shows and venues without my Permission. I mean it got bad, people use to lie and say i will be at they studio, just lie for clout. Cause I have a big fan.
The lessons I’d learned was learn from my failures, see what didn’t work and what did work.make it bigger and better, I learn how to be resilient.
I’m now working on my new album called “ Belly” I have a single out now “ I want it All
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take my best to 3 different places; 4 corners, The Grand Canyon and Sonora. I would take them to 4 corner cause that a cool place, you can be in 4 states at one time. It’s pretty cool, then I would go to the Grand Canyon, cause I never been. I lived her for 13 years and have never been there. Sonora is a beautiful place with very nice hotels,We will eat At hot N juicy which they have the best food
