LjPix exclusive interview
How did you come by your stage name?
My current stage name is “I came up with it by combining my original nickname Lil’Ju and my passion which was photography at the time of my name change, so it kind of stuck with me. I kept it because it’s still me, country o’le Lil’Ju from Orangeburg SC.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I discovered the love of music when I was 10 years old after hearing my brother “T-Flip” rap a song he wrote called “Freestyle King”. then from there on, I’ve pursued music and not just artistry all forms of music.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I got a few people that influenced my style. Pastor Troy and his energy, T.I and his swag, Lil’ Wayne and his diversity, and also my team member Gio aka GmadeItPop with his creativity.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
I sat with my bro Aaron aka (A-walk Edits) and he was telling me to be me, and stop focusing on the acts out there. so I felt that I should find the version of me that had the most hunger for this music life. so I sat and listened to a bunch of older music I loved and it motivated me to create a musical atmosphere letting people feel the vibes and energies that fuel my passion.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
A good friend of mines made me realize that my biggest challenge is myself. what I mean by that is I don’t show the world the best version of me musically. I always second guess it because I don’t want to offend people or to just avoid criticism.
She made me realize that in this game you got to have that “mamba” mentality lol. Big Shout out to Stacy on that one. my greatest attribute definitely has to be my dedication. I follow through and I focus on the musical task and put my all into it for sure.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
I’m the best at being LjPix I feel we all are great in our own way but in my way, there’s only one me.
What are your plans for the near future?
Get those awards and put my team in position to win.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Awalk, Dame, Marc, IttyBitty, Gio, Flip, Stacy, Dem Franchise Boyz , HokRecs, KelzTango, and Joey Casa,
