Lancaster Pa Hip-Hop artist takes Rap to Godly levels

Featured artist: Lo – Lancaster Pa Hip-Hop artist takes Rap to Godly levels

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Lo.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Lo: My name is Brett Shepherd aka Lo. I created a brand called #blotheinfluencemuzik. I originally started as a drummer and played for about 8 years. Words was always my thing though as I used to write a lot of poetry. I first ever recorded a rap song in 2012 in a dudes attic in Lewistown Pa. After that I knew I had talent. I felt it. My moms left when I was a year old and my dad worked a lot which made me alone a lot. I had some mental problems and since I was a kid I was emotionally connected to angels and demons. In 2013 I passed away and my experiences took my writing to a new level which took me deep into my music. It became somewhat of its own entity. It's a mixture of metal, religion, spirituality, occultism, mythology and symbolism.

Never compare yourself to others


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I've never done a live show but I feel I need to in order to grow more as an artist

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"The truth is ima messenger from Heaven bruh; I've been renewed to speak the Shepherd's flock"


What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I'm currently working on a full album called "Templar Hearted". I do have an 8 track mixtape out on SoundCloud and YouTube called "Dying To Shine/Initiated"

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes I would. The cons are that they own all my rights. But I'd get free studio time and the exposure and hopefully respect I deserve. I just wanna rap and feed my family, living comfortably. I have no team so a record deal would probably be my best bet since I can't do independent alone like this. It's getting hard

Any last words?

I wanna shout out my girlfriend Rachael for being through a lot of dark places with me in this journey and helping me see things in a clear mind. I also wanna thank my best homie Sean MacKenzie for raising me since I was in 4th grade and helping me gain confidence. I wanna thank Sourmouth from Portland Oregon for being the realist dude out there, he talked me out of suicide a few times actually and pushed me to keep going. And I wanna thank my dude KingOxi for the dope beat for the track I did called "They're Here". Big shoutout to my home city Lancaster Pa. Also Harrisburg Pa and my new home Pittsburgh Pa. I wanna thank WavyNation, my old manager Dizzy, Hunger Before Greed Productions, Full Tilt Productions and Fire K Studios for helping me build my sound.
