How did you come up with your stage name?
[My] Frat brothers gave me the name. Going through my process or whatever, I was the sixth person in line (you know how black frats work). My frat bruh who stood behind me (my seven) kept calling me Lon6z everyday ’til I just accepted it. ‘Bout time I fully join, the whole campus start calling me Lon6z.
Why did you move to where you currently live?
[I] came out here to network with top celebrities. By doing that, I make more money. At this point, I can say I have done that working with talent such as The Game, Snoop Dogg, my mentor, Mark Keitel Jr.
Describe what genre you categorize yourself under.
Right now I’m on my HipHop/Rap. Last season, I cooked up nothing but R&B. Lately, these fake rappers [have] been irritating me, so I’ve been cooking on their beats. So to answer your question, I’m multi-genred.
How would you describe the sound of your music?
Have you ever had Benihabchi in the middle of the night, drunk? That’s the best way to describe my music: SENSATIONAL. It sounds like Future and Alicia Keys having a baby together. Can you picture it? …To a person in my city hearing my music, its sounds like bites of JJ Fish and chicken. You feel me!
Why is music your passion?
I know how to make money hella ways. To make money from music is like an athlete from the hood playing in the NBA and making a check. This is my court! Like Wayne said!!!!
Who or what inspires your music?
My mood and my experience determines what you hear. The great sound of Lon6z is inspired by Eric Thomas, Gary Vee and Young Thug. I am a high-key moody person and it reflects within what music I make and listen to.
Who is your motivation and why?
Honestly what motivates me is to wake up everyday and be the living testimony of accomplishing whatever you set your mind to. “As I do, is what I show, what I teach.” With that being said, I’m motivated off of my goals to be successful. Most people do it to be famous, hoping to wish upon a star for some label to save them. I just simply want to accomplish these goals I set.
