Recently, we had the opportunity to sit down with up-and-coming rapper, LaScrilla. LaScrilla is a unique artist in the game, having just been released from a 30-year sentence. We asked him about his experience being away and how it’s affected his music.
“Everything has changed, but nothing has changed,” LaScrilla said with a chuckle. “The game is still the same, just with different players. I’m just gaining momentum, so I see how it is to start back from ground zero.”
LaScrilla’s journey has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs. He went from having it all, to losing his daughter and being sentenced to 30 years in prison. However, he never gave up hope and worked tirelessly to win an appeal and clear his name. Now, he’s back and better than ever, dropping hit after hit and taking the city by storm. His newest release, Scrilla Season 4, is a six-song EP featuring beats from the hottest new producers. These songs give listeners a glimpse into LaScrilla’s personal life and struggle, making him stand out among other artists.
When asked about his sentence, LaScrilla had a humorous response. “I was like ‘yeah right!'” he said with a grin. “My mind was set that I’m not doing that much time. I wouldn’t accept it. Plus, I peeped they did a couple of unlawful things during my trial. I just had to bring it to light. I kept fighting until they told me to pack it up.”
We also asked LaScrilla about his thoughts on snitch rappers. “It’s always better to just keep your mouth shut,” he said. “Most rappers are green and fail to realize that it’s going to come back and haunt you. People seem like they don’t care who’s ratting, but that will not be part of my legacy. I’m leaving here solidified.”
When asked about what makes him different from other artists, LaScrilla confidently stated, “I don’t give a f*ck what I say. I have nothing to hide. I did real sh*t and I did bullsh*t. I rap about my flaws and shortcomings. I’m gangsta to the fullest, but I don’t act tough at all. That’s what separates me. I make life seem easy, but I had it hard. Now I’m poppin’ my sh!t, but anybody who knows me could vouch for me that I came a long way.”
When asked about his relationship with his father, LaScrilla shared, “It’s straight. He’s always been in and out of jail, but he went blind on his last bid. He’s always been more of a homeboy than a father. We did dirt together and even been cellmates.”
Lastly, we asked LaScrilla about some of his favorite artists growing up. “It’s a good bit, but I’m feeling Trick Daddy as of now,” he said. “He stood on that thug sh*t and was a nasty dealer when it came to girls. I’m the 2023 TRICK DADDY!”
LaScrilla is definitely a unique artist in the game, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for the future. With his raw, unfiltered approach to music and his humorous attitude, LaScrilla is sure to make a lasting impression on the industry.
