Biography

Hustling the streets by day, but writing poetry at night, Lazarus listened to the rap music that filled the airwaves – namely Houston’s hardcore rapper Crime Boss. “He has been the biggest influence on my music,” said Lazarus. “He’s the real deal. He’s a rapper and a lyricist, and he rapped about the life I was living at the time.” Giving more props, Lazarus adds, “Anybody who’s true to the game knows that Crime Boss was a rapper who influenced the art form.” Other musical influences include rappers N.W. A., 8-Ball, and MJG.

At 15, he recorded his first single, “Another Day on the Hustle,” with a neighborhood rap group.

Lazarus shopped his demo tapes to record companies in Los Angeles. Witnessing the success of rappers on the New Orleans-based record label, Cash Money Records – i.e. Hot Boy – caused Lazarus to grow impatient so he started his own independent label, Lazarus Entertainment. He released his first album, “Here I Come” in 2000, and moved more than 10,000 units, hitting the road in his hometown of Lake Charles, LA and neighboring cities.
The first single released off the album entitled “Heart of a Hustler” is “Enemy & I which was featured in the film “Alpha Dogs” starring Justin Timberlake and its soundtrack.
Lazarus made his foray into acting nabbing his first lead role in a film entitled “Joshua” Heart of a Warrior.

His second release, “Heart of a Hustler,” is set to hit radio and retail. Describing his music as that influenced by the West Coast, but flavored with his deep southern roots, Lazarus’ sound tells the story of his struggle, his pain, his reconciliation and ultimately, his breakthrough.

Enemy & I

Written By: Lazarus

Enemy and I

Intro:
Yeah, Dog
It’s the man inside me
I don’t love these Muthafucka’s
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Chorus:
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die

Verse 1:
Good morning
Just another face in my mirror
My enemy and I
Like how man vs. the vicious killer
Getting wicked was your initial plan
Beneath my soul is my flesh
Child of God In this violent land
Manipulating me to lust for sin
Fornicating is a drug related
I hate you as my best friend
Planting motives initiating wrong for G’s
Survival is my potion
And life is my disease
But my seed shall not perish
For my invisible friend incarcerated
Living in this fucked up world that I was tied in
As a child you was one of my ever thoughts
We ended up in juvi hall
From the crimes when were caught
Momma told me keep my hands in my pocket
You won’t be tempted to steal
He did it anyway
That’s how he wills and deals
Life is real it won’t exist if he wasn’t hear
Causing riots of excitement and God was his only fear

Chorus:
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die

Verse 2:
Getting angry shedding tears when I cry
Protecting me from consequences to lie
Telling me its okay
With all the chaos and rage
Fertilizes my heart
We breathe the same air
Like innocence was your only thought
Our blood runs through the same veins, with the same name, same brain
And the scar still remains
Tell me how long is his term and his precise time
Will he be envisioned and planted in my fucking mind
Since the introduction ain’t no peace
Since the time this nigga has arrived
Doing destructive damage
Target to my foes
Keeping them quick
When I keep them on their toes
Keeping my life full and all into danger
Battling friendly spirits when approached by a stranger
Should I give up my dreams because I can’t cope
Feeding me positive solutions feeding me these false hopes
Stealing me my dreams of positive solutions
Feeding me these false hopes

Chorus:
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die

Verse 3:
I wish I could get this nigga outta my mind
Suicide is the answer if God don’t respond in time
Giving me the tactics in my mind is how he practice
Bust rounds up in your belly with my automatic
Plotting to conquer a women’s flesh
Releasing semen in her body endless fantasies when I lay to rest
Never the less this nigga always wins
Convincing us to commit one of the seven sins
Drinking don’t help it’s when the trouble begins my friend
Tasting sex at the tip of my tongue
Murderous killing committed by the barrel of my gun
Stacking currency inhaling weed into my lungs
Man I’m strapped and I’m living life living raw
Man I’m strapped and I’m living life living raw
I look at myself to see my own reflection
Somebody get a doctor I’ve encountered a real bad infection

Chorus:
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die
Come take a ride with my enemy and I
As we getting high watching days go by
Looking at my life and all the struggles I survived
My enemy and I about to ride till we die

Game Plan

Written By: Lazarus

Game Plan

Scene:
Dr. Bruce telephone please
Dr. Bruce telephone please
Come on honey push a little harder
It’s not all that bad
Push, Push, Push
(Baby crying)
It’s a boy!

Intro:
Yeah
Sometimes I pray at night
I was the last one of these niggas
How come theses niggas don’t blast me?
Yeah, it’s gone be all right

Chorus:
Somebody tell me why the world won’t shed his light on me
(Instead of jealous shady hoes and foes)
Maybe in the nest life after this life I’ll be free
(Lord knows I need rest for my soul)
Somebody tell me why the world won’t shed his light on me
(Instead of jealous shady hoes and foes)
Maybe in the nest life after this life I’ll be free
(Lord knows I need rest for my soul)

Verse 1:
I was conceived from a little seed
But my attentions to ambitious off of life we feed
But my life didn’t begin till I was actually seventeen
Accelerated into manhood supported my family
Like a habit addicted, like a fen on the scene
The struggle only got harder with time
Lord take away my pain come make clear my mind
My dysfunctional family is that a messed up faze or desperation
Supply me with ammo. Getting money was the occupation
The separation with an unstable home
My momma the soul provider getting money on her own
It’s a shame we felt the unacceptable pain
Giving a sure shot to my foes to help us maintain
Our living arrangement poverty’s getting bad
I never see my mother’s eyes so teary, so sad

Chorus:
Somebody tell me why the world won’t shed his light on me
(Instead of jealous shady hoes and foes)
Maybe in the nest life after this life I’ll be free
(Lord knows I need rest for my soul)
Somebody tell me why the world won’t shed his light on me
(Instead of jealous shady hoes and foes)
Maybe in the nest life after this life I’ll be free
(Lord knows I need rest for my soul)

Verse 2:
I only became more determined
Preparing myself for the world that kept turning
I’m earning the status as a young man
Experiencing fornication incarcerated
As a young man
I wish I could live life an s juvenile
Contain my innocence living life as a child
Anticipation on life was a sure guarantee for greatness
These years in the hollow hole have gotten complicated
Motivated
I knew a nigga would make it
But this shit has gotten crazy
Plotting a precise plan
The path given turned me into a man
At a young age
Already at an adult stage
Releasing sperm at thirteen was dream
The struggle made my heart cold as ice
It became as a child to live my life after life
And I became a Daddy

Chorus:
Somebody tell me why the world won’t shed his light on me
(Instead of jealous shady hoes and foes)
Maybe in the nest life after this life I’ll be free
(Lord knows I need rest for my soul)
Somebody tell me why the world won’t shed his light on me
(Instead of jealous shady hoes and foes)
Maybe in the nest life after this life I’ll be free
(Lord knows I need rest for my soul)
