LTC says, "I couldn't afford to pay to record at the local music studios. After time passed I was able to purchase a computer along with the software and learned how to use the tools to create my music. I've always loved Hip Hop and I wish I could have met someone who felt the same way. If I did I think my music would have come out a lot sooner. But, I am always working hard and I don't forget where I come from. I feed from my life's experiences and I use them to create the music you hear today".
