i kinda rock. i do music (sing, rap, write, produce.) it's fun as hell. i draw and paint and sculpt and do graphic design and make jewelry, too. so yeah, i got your baby's momma beat by a long shot. i hate polite people who sacrifice authenticity for "getting along" and people who catch an attitude quicker than me. i love food with lots of curry, free styling in cyphers, Family Guy, The Office, high heels, lipstick, and any book on Carl Jung (fuck Freud.) i am normal. everybody else is weird ;-)
You can be my friend if...
... if you think i am cute or at least relatively entertaining, if u don't have any bullcrap advice on how my music should sound (how the hell YOU gonna tell me how to do ME???), if u know who Bill Withers is, if u are a dope ass girl who gets along with other dope ass girls, thereby increasing MY dopeness, or an aspiring dope ass girl that just needs some love and support from a friend, if u are a hot guy who doesn't love them hoes, if u have an addiction to cartoons that borders on unhealthy, if u think Cree Summer's first album was fresh and u know the words to "Curious White Boy," and if u promise not to make me listen to Dream Theater... then we can be cool.
i do voice overs for commercials and i write them, too. and i co-host a tv show. and i sell songs, do arrangements, and produce vocal sessions for other artists, too (mostly rappers).
and i am a Pop Astronaut who travels the distance of 60 million light-years to the majestic spiral galaxy NGC 4414 to buy Mac Lip Glass and knock off Balenciaga Bags for a discounted price. don't judge me.

Lord Q here, Founder of LA PUNK NOIR andLAPUNKNOIR.com. In an effort to promote Black and Brown bands and artists that don’t fit within the narrow perceptions of mainstream radio, I have started an online show,LPN RADIO. I am writing to ask that your band submit songs and links to your site to be featured on the show.
As you may be aware, LPN is the hub of West Coast Alternative Urban music, news and style. For bands and artists that Black radio has no room for and mainstream radio is afraid of, the LPN platform is available to you. LPN RADIO features alternative urban bands in the genres of rock, punk, metal and alternative hip-hop. I am also interested in introducing your band, via the LPN interview series,Q:15, a daily 15 minute segment, where two songs of featured guests are played, with an interview in between.
If your band is interested in these opportunities, follow the submission guidelines:
