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!

Racism and Police Brutality

I know a lot of people have racism and police brutality on their minds now more than ever. Some are complaining about it and some are  actively thinking about how to fight it. Maybe you are as well. I hope you are. All it takes for Evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.. Have you considered how to make the Black community more powerful, so we can have a stronger voice in society? Have you thought of getting into financial shape, so you have a business or generational wealth to pass on to your children? What about the Black dollar? Have you thought about ways to keep the TRILLIONS of dollars we spend every year circulating within the Black community? These are the questions I’ve been thinking about for years and here’s how I’m putting in the work to make big things happen for our communities... I teach people how to create the kind of economy that has real power in America. Because the truth is… The only color they REALLY care about is GREEN  Money can give you access, power, an

I care about you and want you to be protected

 I care about you and want you to be protected I will not mince my words here. We live in unprecedented times. I take the mission of equal justice under law VERY seriously. Quite honestly, we all know I own and operate  but I do not do build this business for money.  While I do like the residual income it provides, I already have enough to take care of my bills. I don't say that to impress you, I say that to impress upon you that I'm more mission driven than commission driven.  I take this very seriously and hope you do as well. When I was in my early 20s, I had a black Cadillac...vogue rag pin FACTORY wheels...wooo that thing was clean.  I'm from the Eastend of Richmond. I always wanted a Cadillac. I've owned about 10...However I got pulled over and profiled once a week. It got so bad I ended up considering selling my car. I could not keep what I earned and deserved because cops decided to pull me over

Decade end....

Quick question... Have you reviewed your decade yet? I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close. Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :) Where were you in your business in 2010? Where are you now? What did you start? What did you end? What investments did you make? What skill sets did you learn? What did you miss out on? I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of.  Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!
