“Good Dope” with LK Productions

Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?
I grew up in the C.O.T. (Troy, Al), a small city in south Alabama. I did the whole college basketball thing, and ended up in Music City. I went from job to job, trying to climb the corporate ladder and wasn't happy. There was a something inside me that kept telling me to pursue a career in music. So, a few years back, I started making beats. Then the rest just kinda happened. I feel like it's about time Alabama had a run. We've had a couple stints, but nothing substantial. If you like grinding, riding, smoking, and hustling, I'm your guy!
Exposed Vocals: Since everyone was a start-up once, can you give any smaller or local bands or artists looking to get gigs and airplay some tips?
Put the time in, the work isn't gonna do itself. I wanted to be able to do everything in my production line, so I taught myself.
Exposed Vocals: Do you ever make mistakes during performances? How do you handle that?
Confidence and a sense of humor will make any situation better. Stuff happens sometimes.
Exposed Vocals: Do you tour? Anything interesting happen on tour that you think our readers would enjoy hearing about?
Not yet.
Exposed Vocals: Any planned studio upgrades? What are you working with now?
Always! Anytime I can make an improvement, I jump at it. As of right now, I'm searching for a new creative space for my studio. Currently I use FL studio for beats, and Pro Tools for recording and mixing.
Exposed Vocals: How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?
Networking through the internet and constant word of mouth work best for my situation. It's a little different for me, because I was making beats before I was rapping. So, I was already being mentioned to some of the local artists.
Exposed Vocals: If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?
It would be Outkast. The place would be anywhere, it doesn't really matter.
Exposed Vocals: So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?
I've been doing a lot of producing as of late, but I have a project of my own that'll be out shortly.
Exposed Vocals: If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?
If I wasn't making music, I would definitely be working in sports.
Exposed Vocals: What should fans look forward to in the next year or so?
You should see a lot more LK Productions popping up on your feed. I'm always working! Whether it's with other artists or my own projects, I plan on keeping it moving.
