LA started listening to hip hop around 1995 the first hip hop tape he ever bought was Naughty By Nature's Poverty's Paradise. After that he went back and started listening to any and everything that had to do with hip hop. LA started writing when he was 13 and really started taking it more serious when he was 17. Musically ha has always been heavily influenced by Jay-Z mainly but also T.I., Biggie, 2Pac, Eminem, Naughty By Nature, The Lost Boyz, Joe Budden, Fabolous, Children Of The Corn, The Diplomats, The Lox, Nas, Stack Bundles. LA's style is more club or party oriented he likes to have fun and tries to show it in his music but can also branch off into other types of styles as well.
