L was born in Los Angeles and raised in Rochester, Michigan. Music is one of the earliest memories he had as a child. He used to perform on the bricks in front of the fireplace with his toy guitar. L's father was a DJ in college and always kept L's ear open to different sounds. His uncles were the ones who put him on to rap. He used to wake up listening to Tupac and like him, he felt like music had a far greater reach than just ears. If used the right way, music can change the world with it. Or at least inspire enough people to do so.

L took a little bit of his style from everywhere. Nas, Biggie, Jay or down south with Scarface, T.I., and Ludacris, as well as west coast rap always being an influence given his roots. 2Pac, Snoop, Too $hort, Warren G.
