(SN) How long have you been in pursuit of your hip hop career. What keeps you motivated to keep in pushing.
Lotto: CTL Records was founded around 2005 after I was released from Jail, so about 6 years. Young Kidd: I was already doing my thang around that time, recording and writing songs so we been going ever since. Lotto: What keeps me motivated is that everyday i feel i’m getting better at this craft and i haven’t reached my full potential yet. I just started taking rap serious when i got out of jail, before then it was just freestyling at parties nothing that would even be considered real rap. Now that i got a little buzz I’m gonna take it all the way i feel like I’m gonna be doing this for a long time.
Young Kidd: The thing that keeps me motivated and pushing is just my love for music, i love going in the studio creating what im creating. I love doing these shows i love giving people something they can relate to If my music can take someone from having a bad day to a good day then im good u feel me, And of coarse my daughter gives me that extra push to give it 110%. I know for a fact i will be making music until its my time to go.
