Artist On The Rise: Lord Luminous
On The 6th Is Proud To Present To You Artist On The Rise: Lord Luminous
Take a minute and get to know this rising star
In his own words:
I'm lord luminous also known as Cashis Clay, I'm a Producer, M.C. And Master Engineer.
My career started in 1993, Hip Hop back in that Era was awesome, Wu-Tang, RedMan, A Tribe Called Quest, Def Squad, Nas, Jay-Z, 2pac and BIGGY. West Coast Hip Hop was real raw and dope as well, man that whole era made me fall in love with music.
I'm currently working on my "GENTLEMENSCLUB PROJECT", artists like myself,
My singer/rapper Cindale and producer/rapper Cold Medina, our goal is to change this music of rap back into the essence of real M.C.n again and bring back real hip hop.
My greatest accomplishment so far in life has to be my new born son, he is 4 months now, and trust me when I say I've worked many nights for that touch down.
The other is working with the Wu-Tang, I took that time and learned a lot about them and this game. I grew up always wanting to work with them and was blessed to do so for 2 years. I was able to build my own studio, get a degree in master engineering in music, as well as Criminal Justice.
I've worked with many artists locally and over seas via Internet. I am grateful to still be healthy and alive. I come from a place that dieing young was a promise.
I love producing tracks and being a hip hop artist, I love going out with my crew doing what ever we want. I'm a revolutionist so I'm always up on politics, and listening to classic hop hop music, and basically very family oriented. My kids and my queen are my life line.
I want to be the greatest dad and Hip Hop Music artist/producer that has ever lived, putting the money aspect aside.
I like that since I'm an independent artist, I can create and do what I want, no dictatorship telling me how I should create my album,and I enjoy the fact that I'm producing real hip hop music for my old and new fans, not this garbage people are into now, I'm free, while their wealthy slaves.
If you were ever to get inside my mind, you could build another pyramid with no hands man. I've been blessed to experience life and learn lessons that have allowed my creative process to go beyond what man can't understand. Even in its simplest form, people won't get it.
We all have a story to tell, and as an artist if your truly coming from the art, people can create that image in their minds and can relate or build that same blue print and succeed in their lives.
I create music that all can listen to and enjoy. Music and Kids are my motivation.
Advice I have for those looking to pursue their dreams? Stay humble and keep praying, continue to apply yourself. We all have dreams, love what you want to do, and pursue it.
I want to be remembered for putting out great hip hop music, and giving his all to the world, through music, and always staying real.
Something I want the world to know is I never met my dad. The coward left me and my family. I have a son, and can't see how people could just be so selfish and not want to raise the kids they helped produce. I love music, but the love of my family is way more important. I'm not a high school or college drop out, I've got 4 college degrees and hopefully can inspire others to do the same.
