"Lyricist On Real Diversity: A look at Young L.O.R.D"

One can tell a lot about a person by their name. After first hearing about Young L.O.R.D, I had to know what was his name was about.

“My name stands for Lyricist On Real Diversity. It was given to me by another artist who said the name fit me perfectly. Some people may take it wrong at first glance, but I personally feel like diversity is a key ingredient to the success of an artist, so I kept the name and ran with it,” said Young L.O.R.D.

After putting out his first project in 2003, Young L.O.R.D has been performing in Lexington and has been an opening act for Nappy Roots. His self-described music is clever. Young L.O.R.D says he tries to mix what people want to hear with what he thinks people need to hear.

“If I can give you a message, and make it in a way that you can’t get it out of your head, mission accomplished,” said Young L.O.R.D.

The solo artist hopes one day he can use whatever success he has had to help make Lexington a music hot spot.

“There is so much talent in Lexington, it’s beyond ridiculous. All the true artists stand out because of their love for the music. It bleeds through everything in the music, like silent magic. If anything makes me different it’s that I love doing this, some of these "artists" aren't in it for the love,” said Young L.O.R.D.

Many artists have goals they want to accomplish as an artist and really see that moment as one when they know they have become successful.

“As an artist, a big accomplishment for me would be to meet any other artist that I was a fan of growing up, and turn them into a fan of mine,” said Young L.O.R.D.

Young L.O.R.D will be performing at Lexingtonhiphop.com Jump-Off at Salottos on August 17th. For more information check out www.myspace.com/younglord. - TopsInLex
