We had the good fortune of connecting with LOE Turtle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LOE, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking has played a big role in my life/career, beginning from me graduating high school going off to college 8 hours away to realize I really shouldn’t have took that risk. I moved closer to home and started learning how to be independent without my mom. Taking risk has played good and bad roles within my life/career. I have met some good people, built lifetime friendships, and relationships. But I have also lost a lot of money, dealt with people that does bad business, and went in circles many of times because of the risk I have taken. I learn from my mistakes and if something goes bad, I always try not to repeat whatever mistake I did. I believe you never know if something will work, or how far you can really go if you never take risk.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
When it comes to my music I am original and unique, I have my own sound and image. I am a versatile artist that speak about real life situations, love, motivation, etc. I got to were I am professionally by never stopping. I knew at a young age what I wanted to do, so from the time then to now I have literally worked and worked to reach all my goals. It was not easy, but I knew if I gave up I would not be the person I wanted to be in life. I learned along the way that everybody you start with is not always whom you will finish with, rather its family or friends. Sometimes your plans will not end how you envisioned them to end. I want the world to know that the Loyalty Ova Everythang brand (LOE) stands for real Loyal, stand up people. I am a firm believer in loyalty, and honesty. My motto is chase your dreams, be you, and loyal to your people.
