Featured artist: LeCadre – …and then LeCadre (finally).
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist LeCadre from Brooklyn / Houston to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, LeCadre! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
LeCadre: I've always been an artist, lol at least in my head. I wrote my first song when I was around twelve or thirteen. I thought you had to write the entire time length of the music so that song was like 4 pages front and back. I don't think I ever let anyone hear that one.
The best advice given to me would be "keep going" if you stop now, you will be mad at yourself for being in the same spot that you're in. So no matter what, "keep going."
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Play live? Man I have live conversations! I try to make my shows more than an "I perform, you watch" situation. I like to engage with my audience, if I'm having a f*ucked up day I'll probably talk about it at some point during the show. I think it helps the crowd relate to you that much more.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
"You really must not really care nicca,
that your bitch all up in here nicca,
she fucking up all of her hair nicca,
cuz Cadre might let her get near a nicca."
