Name: Lore’l ….don’t forget the apostrophe (it’s pronounced like the makeup)
Age: 25 no lies
Reppin’: I grew up in the Dirty… Jersey, that is, but I was born in BK.
I Started Rapping: When I was in High School, I remember being a freshman going to school in Newark. I was bad as fuck, yeah, I remember that too!! But, we use to crack jokes on each other so much that we started these rap battles during class. These were the rules; you had 15-20 minutes to write a verse about whoever you wanted in class. For those that could, they kicked a freestyle instead of writing out a diss, but whatever you did you had to shut that person down. I took that shit to heart and was so serious about it, but I always won though!
My style and/or skills have been compared to: An early Lil’ Kim with that Biggie flow, ya’ know? I’ve also heard people compare me to Remy Ma –that’s that Raspy voice of mine! But on the real, I’m just Lore’l, no disrespect to those individuals. Kim and Remy are extremely talented, but I’m not to be compared to ANYONE, and I’ma make sure of that! It doesn’t hurt that I look like a Playboy bunny either, so making others see me as an individual is easy. Fellas, eat your heart out!
My standout records and/or moments have been: I was honored to be featured on Fabolous’ EP “There Is No Competition 2” on track eight, “Tonight” ft/ Red Café. Yeah, that was an ill moment.”Tap It” was a cool little Record for me too. When I dropped it a few years ago, I got a lot of love on the radio in New York, they played it. But, dropping my latest project Leading Lady hosted by Angela Yee and DJ Ill Will is the biggest accomplishment to date! Once I started hearing all the positive feedback, I realized that it was a huge accomplishment for me. I did that project dolo, no co-sign, and all original tracks! You could say I did it on a “brown paper bag flow,” ha! I’m proud of that piece of work! Next stop, Coachella & Summer Jam stages and shit!
I’m gonna change the game by: Being ME and by rapping! I don’t know what these other females are doing. There’s a lot of singing going on, bitches calling themselves rappers but you got other dudes writing for them, playing around and shit. That’s cute from some, but I’m not a puppet or a copycat. Shit is real over here. I go in! So, if anyone wants to hear rap on “rap songs” raise your hand and follow me, Lore’l.
I’d Like to Work With: Gwen Stefani, Kanye West, Ne-Yo, B.o.B and I’m waiting on that Nicki call.
My goal in hip-hop is: To be a successful, well-respected artist and business woman. When I get to the platform I wish to reach as an artist, I plan to sign other talented people and create a record label that will blossom. I’m confident that I’ll be successful in doing that, shit Justin Bieber was discovered by Usher. So, when I get big enough, I’ll be looking for an artist like Bieber to sign! I respect artists like Ross, Kanye and Wayne for putting other artists on because, I definitely want to do the same.
I’m gonna be the next: Female Rap Artist to cover XXL, solo. What can I say, I’m a Covergirl!
