Dolton, IL very own L.A. VanGogh is gearing up for the release of his project Everything Is Subjective: Episode 2. Many already know things are much deeper than the music for L.A. He is a true artist that enjoys going the extra mile when it comes to creativity. We’re so excited for this release we just had to grab him for an interview. Check it out below.
RESPECT.: Hey L.A. How’s it going? I have been trying to pinpoint Influences I hear in your music.
I have two influences. My biggest influences are Frank Ocean and Lupe Fiasco. I’m influenced by a lot so if I were to tell you everything it would be a long list.
RESPECT.: Do you come from a musical family?
My cousin is a jazz singer and a lot of my family members sing around the house. I think I picked it up when I was younger. My father’s close friends played music when they were younger so I guess I picked up on that.
RESPECT.: Let’s talk Everything Is Subjective: Episode 1
Yes, it is a project I dropped in 2017 and episode 2 is dropping November 23rd. The name itself is a conversation starter. Everyone has their own view points in their life. I am really into philosophy and I always apply it to my music.
RESPECT.: I can see that in your recent music video “CMYH.” What inspired the making of it?
Me smoking weed next to my director honestly. We were kicking it outside of making videos and I was like imagine if we’re smoking and a lady comes out of my blunt and the lady evaporates. Then, in the next room I’m getting high with Jesus. Overall, I was giving a visual of my first time getting high and a lot of people don’t notice that my second verse is written from the perspective of a blunt.
RESPECT.: What can we expect on Everything Is Subjective: Episode 2
More songs that play with perspective like what my friends expect from me, and what my career expects from me. There’s are different layers to the project. The production is great and underneath it all there is a story line throughout it.
RESPECT.: What’s next for L.A.?
There is another video but it’s still in the works. Also, Everything Is Subjective: Episode 2 arrives November 23rd.
