Interview with L.A.Pryce (@l.a.pryce)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I grew up listening to Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and Ice-T. My brother would play their songs on his Walkman and id be in awe listening to them. He taught me how to rap in grade 3. That is when I discovered my passion for music. It has always been something I am fond of and wanted to do since a very young age.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Its very normal to get burned out in this field because you are always working your brain overtime to come up with ideas that perform well enough to attract an audience. Its tough but for me the best way to cool off is spending time with my family. I have two nephews who I love with all my heart. They help me stay grounded and distracted and I am very grateful for that.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My older brother Ced is my biggest supporter. He is the man who taught me how to rap in grade 3. He is a professional painter and contractor, and he is incredible at it. My father and him started a business years ago before our father died. He kept working hard and supporting me in every way possible till I was able to stand on my own feet. He is the reason I am where I am right now. He is my biggest supporter and best friend. He inspires me to work hard and never give up.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I am big supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. It is a revolution against systemic racism, and I am all about it. I have a song “OFFSIDES” in which I rap about the criminal injustice and inequality aimed towards the black community in America. I will always continue to be an advocate of BLM and try everything in my power to help the black community fight for their rights.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Never give up and keep grinding”. It does not matter where you are from what your financial status is. With enough hard work and dedication, you can get where you want. You should just have a growth mindset and with some earnesty you can get wherever you want in life.
