Local talent:Lela Bizz : Singer/Song writer

In a time of extreme electronic manipulation, great singers are a rare find.Ever been watching someone perform and ALL the hairs on your neck stood up? I have. Lela was singing a Jasmine Sullivan song. She BELONGS on someone's stage.

Get to know more about Lela below...

Meek: Lets start with something simple. Where you from shawwww? *talks like I have Gold fronts in*

LelaBizz: lol Im from Richmond Va ....Southside of the James :)

Meek: Another simple one to get your juices flowing, pun intended... Do you have a favorite book?

LelaBizz: BOOK??? Who reads?? lol Just kidding! lol I really Love the book for Color Purple...I know kinda corny :/

Meek: Not at all, at least you opened one. Some people say "Wan't to hide information from a nigga, put it in a book"...What do you think is the biggest misconception about Lela Bizz?

LelaBizz: lol!! The biggest misconception of Lela Bizz is before people actually get to see me or hear me sing and/or perform, they think I am a {insert here} singer. I think I can be here for awhile if granted the opportunity!

Meek: What makes you different from what you call "Insert here" singers?

LelaBizz: I feel that a lot of people forgot what R&B really is. It's Rhythm and Blues....Soul Music...Not "I got a cute hook" or a "hard track." Something when you hear it, you feel it in your soul. I speak from the heart and soul when I write and when I perform.

Meek: MESSAGE!!!!! *air humps* ...Did you say write? If so, how much of your own music do you write?

LelaBizz: lol You are a goof ball! *air humps* I write alllllll my stuff!! I have a partner who is my producer as well Rak aka Mr. Good Evening and we Do it all!!

Meek: You write ALLLLLL your stuff? Who does that? What is your writing process like?

LelaBizz: Yes sir! Normally, I have a glass of wine lol ....maybe some candy, and its on!! lol... but good music is not hard to make and it is not forced...The beat sings to me. The track writes its own song. lol Im amazed sometimes!!! Like wow i wrote that I don't even know what that word means lol. My favorite part is hearing what you had in your head on wax!!! 9 times out of 10 it sounds better than you

Meek: Sounds like its more of a natural thing for you...Speaking of chopped your hair off, Most of the time women do that because something extreme happened and they feel like it’s a new start, what made you want to sport the Mr Clean?

LelaBizz: OMG! you are too much!! lol ... It's funny you say that because my daddy was like "Whats wrong sweetheart...did something happen? Are you hurt? " .....NOOOO.... I thought it would be a good look and people are rocking with it :)

Meek: so you SAYYYYYY! For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 5 words:

LelaBizz: Only 5? lol Its....Fun, Young, Old soul, Hood, Street, Real..... That was easy lol

Meek:Thats definitely 6...give a nigga a rope and she wants to be a cowboy! Now that we've established you write and sing your OWN music, tell us a little bit about your performing ability. Are you a performer? Do you dance in the mirror? all that!?!?!

LelaBizz: I dance in the mirror...rap in the mirror.... I still play in make up in the but I would consider myself a performer I love to entertain.. I love to make people laugh and I love to hear people sing along :) I black out sometimes when I am up there. I've been told I have a potty mouth! But I say I'm not for the kids...and they shouldn't be int eh night clubs anyway lol... I am not tactful, but I'm real and you get that from beginning to end when I perform.

Meek: *still thinking about the strip parties he used to throw* oh yea..Kids in a night club are parent and club owner problems, not yours.If you could go open up for any artist on tour right now who would it be? and why?

LelaBizz: Nicki Minaj, because I love her!! I'm not a Barb though .... and Trey songs and Chris Brown and Usher....R Kelly would be hott!! I would love to do a song with him period!!

Meek: Somebody tell R Kelly Lela wants to get peed on!

LelaBizz: LMFAO!! Shut up!

Meek: Nevermind you're too old for him lol...If someone wants to come see you perform, where would they go? Have any gigs lined up?

LelaBizz: I have a performance in CT on Dec 26th. Next Tuesday, December the 13th, I'm doing open mic night at Tropical Soul in Richmond VA. Last night was flames, a lot of great and talented people out there! You can also check me out on I have done so many covers :)

Meek: Hey Hey! no plugs until I say so DAMMIT! .........Now that IIIIII say so.....Where can someone go to find out more about you and/or download your music?

Meek: You're telling me! You prematurely ejaculated all over my interview!

LelaBizz: lol!

Meek: Lastly, any words of advice for aspiring singers/artists?

LelaBizz: okay here are all the cliches.... Follow your dreams never give up. Stay confident and it will come. Last, but not least, a wise man once said "Dont get mad when people cant see your vision...just paint a more vivid picture."

Meek: good deal, thanks for your time homie!

LelaBizz:Thank You!

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
That’s just depressing. 
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
