We had the good fortune of connecting with Lavi$hYuri and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lavi$hYuri, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I was born in Los Angeles, and raised in South Gate. As a child my family and I struggled so much. After losing my brother I started getting into fights, and getting suspended. Going through so much at a young age makes you rebellious. It took a while to get on the right path and it wasn’t easy, it has impacted me to tell my story through my music and express my feelings to help others who are going through the same thing or at least something similar. I’m only becoming better as I grow older and more wiser. Which has made me the person I am today, I have came a long way and this is only the beginning.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I started singing at a really young age, but shortly after my brother passed I started doing poetry. Next thing you know I found a mic to let it all out, and it made me feel way better. It was hard to get were I am right now and I’m no where near where I want to be. Something I’ve learned is that many people will watch you but not many will support, you Just have to keep pushing until you make it. I learned to never care about what others think because you need to do what you want to do and what makes you happy. Follow and chase your dreams, they say the sky is the limit but I’m going to blast right through it. What I say is real life things that I have been through that’s why I feel like many people love how honest I am and is the reason why I stand out amongst others.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shout out my whole family who has been there for me throughout all my struggles, My beautiful mother, who had to play both roles as a mother and father. My brothers for always having my back and my girlfriend who has held me down since 2015 and has kept pushing me and told me to never give up. A special shout out to imafool because he’s been nothing but real to me since I met him and has spit game to me about this music industry. And lastly to all my supporters who have showed nothing but love. I do this for y’all.
