Recently I got the chance to chop it up with Virginia’s own LADY LOE as she’s on a mission to let the world know that “She Did It.”
DJ Spins- What is your Stage Name?
LADY LOE- I go by the name of Lady Loe.
DJ- Please tell us where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
LL- Born in Brooklyn, Bred in Queens. My mom and dad loved “oldies but goodies” music. My dad was a R&B singer in a group. I would listen to the oldies but goodies and rap to those songs while imaging I was on stage performing.
DJ – Who and/or what inspires you to create?
LL- Life, really. Mine and other people’s situations inspire me to write and create. I’ve written songs about homelessness and domestic violence as these things happened in my life, which touches the lives of others who experienced the same or similar situations.
DJ- How would you describe your sound?
LL- Most people say I sound aggressive when I’m rapping (laughs). Everyone says they love my voice and that my voice is unique. Cool from Cool and Dre (Platinum producers) said that I don’t sound like no other female which was dope!! He continued by saying that I sound like a female version of Busta Rhymes! That was a huge compliment!!
DJ- What is your creative process like?
LL- I’m very picky when selecting beats! (laughs) The beat is what moves, directs, and shapes my vision. I write to video in my head. I’ll freestyle, not with words, but with patterns to create my cadence and how the flow would go.
DJ- What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
LL- Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Meek Mills, Queen Latifah, Lauren Hill, Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Rakim, and Roddy Ricch to name a few.
DJ- If you could open a show for any artist who would it be?
LL- Definitely would have to be Jay-Z
DJ- What is one message you would give to your supporters?
LL- Never give up on your DREAMS!

DJ- What is the most useless talent you have?
LL- Dancing! (laughs)
DJ- What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
LL- If I wasn’t in the music industry I would be involved in social work.
DJ- Who are some artists you admire and why?
LL- Fat Joe because he put on a lot of artists and they are now superstars. I would also say Jay-Z because he built an Empire.
DJ- What is the best advice you’ve been given?
LL- Never try to change any situation that you can’t control. I am only in control of myself and my actions and behaviors.
DJ- If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
LL- I would like to see more opportunities presented to female artists.
DJ- What’s next for you and where would you like to see yourself in the next year?
LL- I would like to chart on the Billboards.
