Lu is a Lexington, KY native raised in Frankfort, KY where at a young age, he began his lyrical journey, rapping and performing at many engagements in his hometown. He grew up as the son of a preacher, making the gospel no stranger to him. Throughout the course of his musical career, he has won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life; he began performing at a variety of venues, making a great deal of public appearances, all the while recording new music. However, Lu decided to take a brief hiatus from his craft following high school. 

Lu Bennett obtained a B.S. in Hospitality Management from Western Kentucky University, where he joined the latest and greatest Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Inc. It was not until his graduating spring semester when then 23-year-old LuMar Bennett endured a tragic experience that sent him into a deep state of depression. Hans Stewart, a good friend of Lu’s, encouraged him to spill all of his emotions and pain onto the beats that he was currently producing.

After constant resistance, Lu finally gave in and agreed to write music again and it’s a good thing he did. Having hit rock bottom in search of a way to bounce back, Lu held close to his faith in God and his friendship with his producer Hans on his journey back to music. He humbled himself in order to step into the role that God has planned for him. He believes that it is his obedience that has gotten him to where he is today, and he does not take this lightly.

Lu reports that the most important aspect to evangelical leadership in his opinion is the ability to simply “Tell Your Story”. Lu believes that individuals are often more connected than they realize. If you are experiencing hardship, the odds are that someone else has been through the same hardship or something similar. Sometimes in the midst of darkness, it could truly assist to hear “me too”, so that you do not feel alone and are aware that there are others just like you. This is exactly what Lu does through his music.

Lu realizes that sharing your story and testimony is what people need to hear. He resolutely continues to reach out to others through music and community service. He is an inspirational speaker, musician, son, brother, fiance’, and community liaison. He plans to positively influence society by aligning his passion with his purpose; utilizing his experiences to reach others and ultimately shed light to the greatest story ever told.​.
