Lord Lhus full bio on HHUG
LL: Because a lot of rappers/producers talk that "fuck the industry" and "we keep Hip Hop alive" shit but when it all boils down, all they care about is money. I just want people to have my music, fuck money I get paid from collaborations and shows.
HHUG: The title of your album is bold. Why did you decide to name your project under that title? What theme or message(s) should fans anticipate from your album?
LL: Honestly I feel like a prophet because sometimes I don't know why I rap about shit but it always comes true. At first I just wanted it to be funny but that shit came to life after time so it's like it was part of a divine plan. People can expect to hear me hit every angle of style on this album from deep shit to battle rap to some psychedelic spaced out shit.
HHUG: There are two music videos for the singles "L.H.U.S" and "Fuck You Lord Lhus". Can you elaborate on these music videos?
LL: "L.H.U.S." - that's just a song I made about killing mainstream shit while sounding as mainstream as possible. "Fuck You Lord Lhus" I did almost two years ago but at the time it dropped, I had just got set up and jumped by some bigger rappers so it just fit perfect with the time haha.
HHUG: Prior to FYLL's release, you released a mixtape with an opposite title, We Love You Lord Lhus [WLYLL]. What can you tell us about that mixtape?
LL: That was all the songs that I did not think fit on the FYLL album. I tried to make FYLL all fit together, WLYLL was just the cut tracks.
HHUG: Months prior to FYLL's release, many rumors circulated on the internet regarding a fiasco involving Vinnie Paz, Ill Bill, and the Snowgoons against you. Can you clarify these rumors?
LL: Yeah, the AOTP dudes got their feelings hurt about a comment I said about one of Jus Allah's verse and took it way too serious. After a few arguments on Facebook with Paz and Jus, I was sick of the childish shit so I went to the Heavy Metal Kings show in Toronto and try to squash it. I came alone and told the promoter to tell Paz I was here and want to peace shit out and show my support. He comes back all on some "yeah come on they got a blunt ready for you and all," so I go and soon as I get in the door, it's a set up - five on one - the lights go out and I got caught slipping. After that the Snowgoons made a straight industry political move and dropped me in hopes that Paz and Bill don't drop them. All petty bullshit but I'm glad it happened because I got all the snakes that was rolling with me out of my garden.
HHUG: Many fans anticipated production from the Snowgoons on your debut since of your frequent involvement on their previous projects. Did the incident with Vinnie Paz & Ill Bill in Toronto led to the absence of Snowgoons production on your album?
LL: There is no Snowgoons production on my album. In my opinion their beats are falling off and starting to all sound the same and not raw but more computerized. I only work with the best such as Al'tarba, Benzie, Junior Makhno, etc.
HHUG: Also you released a diss song aimed at Ill-Legit Records artists, whom you had close affiliation with. Can you elaborate on that?
LL: The story is in the diss. I took these kids under my wing, showed them love, tried to give them my fan base but soon as Snowgoons quit fucking with me they along with many other of the people I was rolling with, got scared to be associated with me because it was now a "bad career move." Like I said, all this is good because now I know who my real people are.
HHUG: Noticing you have performed at shows in Europe many times, are there any touring plans for FYLL in the U.S. and/or abroad?
LL: I will be all over Europe, that's where I rest now and I don't really plan shit. So no "tours" set up but I'm always down for shows and also will be in Bogota, Colombia this December for a show.
HHUG: What is in store for Lord Lhus in the near future?
LL: I will takeover the underground scene with my chosen affiliates, EHW (Empty Handed Warriors).
HHUG: Who are your top 5 favorite music artists?
LL: Hank 3, Rakim, Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, and Tragic Allies.
HHUG: Thank you for taking the time for this interview. Would you like to give any closing comments or shout outs?
LL: Big ups to all my fans and supporters!!! I do this for y'all!! And hit up www.LordLhus.com and my forums!!
