From Shelby, NC born in October 30, 1989 comes an enlightened emcee who calls himself L.T. (Lyrical Talent) Futuristic Trapper due to his ability to portray lyrical content from the standpoint of not only a scholar college grad but from the gritty avenues of each urban environment across the U.S. Bringing his quick lyricism and witty punchlines, L.T.’s craft stemmed from his constant lyrical quoting of influences such as Tupac, Drake, and T.I. His own gifts were not put to the test until around his senior year of high school in 2008 when friends and family began to insist he spit some of his own lyrics. L.T. or One Take Talent began being known for his ability to write and record his songs in just one time through. He grew up listening to and reciting Bone Thugs n Harmony and Twista lyrics. This gave L.T. a broad range of versatility, as an unsigned artist, being able to rap at a very quick pace and still be clearly understood. Using nothing but his Gateway notebook and a basic microphone, L.T. began free-styling and engineering his own music. Being no stranger to sharp flow and punchlines, it was no surprise that free-styling came natural as he became a 9 time Freestyle champ live on 102 jamz (BDS station) in 2012. However, writing wasn’t initially a strong point. Over time this only increased in skill level as L.T. will now tell you that his writing is just as strong as his freestyling abilities. He likes to call what he does “Futuristic Trap Music” which he uses to show off strong lyrical ability combined with outrageous adlibs, wild humor, comical value, and talk of making the GOOD GUY become the extremely COOL guy, which isn’t typically expressed by “lyrical artists” in todays world of “gun talk” “hoes” and “gangbanging”. Hence the name Futuristic Trapper. L.T. also has recently began to record/edit various footage for his Lyrical Television which gives insight on “the ups, the downs, the money, the shows, the conflicts, the resolutions and the first hand view of his drug, that is the “music industry” as he explains it. This Lyrical Television includes merchandise, sales of footage, incorporating fans into EVERYTHING and allowing aspiring artist/entertainers (Target audience from ages 13-26) to view and be included in the entertainment world of their dreams. “I do it, YOU live it. You Gotta See This!!” is his motto for it. With a fresh style to bring to the table, L.T. is hungry and more than ready to be heard.
