Tiara – What inspired you to start making music?
Lu Castro – I have been writing rap since I was 10 years old. I didn’t start recording music until I was 14. I recorded a song on my neighbor’s computer; he had the material that I needed to make music. I used to intern by cleaning the studio, and the guy who owned the studio would let us record songs.
Tiara – What keeps you motivated?
Lu Castro -What keeps me motivated is the idea of proving people wrong. I take the negativity and turn it into something positive, and show people around me that whatever you want to do in life is possible.
Tiara – Tell me about the time when you started battle rapping.
Lu Castro – Battle rapping I never took seriously; I just wanted to keep my face visible so when I do drop music, it is not out of the left field. What made me start going harder is seeing that getting to the next level in battle rap was attainable for me. In the beginning, I didn’t take battle rapping seriously until I was on Smack URL, and I started moving up. Battle rap is a driving force of the recent buzz I had for my music. I Thank God that I’m fortunate enough to have a great team that believed in me.
