Lou From Paradise talks growing up a troublemaker in Staten Island, his journey through the major label system, his dad not letting Eve in the club, and performs “Stray Dog Freestyle” live in studio
Lou From Paradise hit it big in 2016 with a video that took him from never playing a solo show, to playing festivals within a matter of months. He was quickly swept into the major label system, and describes it as all being too much too soon. Feeling trapped by a machine that didn’t want to see him grow and evolve, he asked to be released, and is now back on the indie grind feeling fully recharged.
Lou’s set to have a very busy year. With 3 releases already in the pocket, including the soon to be released tape produced completely by Statik Selektah, he seems set to have another big breakout very soon. He played me a bunch of new music after this episode and I can vouch, he’s got all the bars, multiple styles, and seems to never run out of new ideas.
Hear us talk about growing up a troublemaker in Staten Island, his journey through the major label system, and his dad not letting Eve in the club.
