Lil J the white rapper from Westwood

Lil J is a white rapper from Westwood MA and a current student at Bryant University. He writes over both classic and original hip-hop beats. Rap is his true passion, almost to the point of obsession. He says his music can be considered “clowning”. After the release of his “Idols” EP, where he paid homage to his heroes and idols, Lil J came back with the follow-up, “Idols 2”, which over and above containing songs to his idols, also discusses Lil J’s dreams as a rapper.  He is following that up with his new mixtape, “Stoner Chick” which which dropped on 2/14.

  1. How long have you been in the music business and how did you get started in the first place?

LiLJ: I started rapping my junior year of college when I was around 19/20. Me and buddies would throw on a beat on YouTube and just spit. We never really took it serious, just something fun. One of my homies Nick also known as Pasty White Boy had made a few tapes on SoundCloud. We all joked around that we were going to make a tape. There was one event in particular that made me realize rap is something I want to pursue. One night in February of 2016, I was delivered a very special message. After a night of heavy chronic smoking and indulging in a highly potent marijuana edible (a firecracker) this message was delivered to me in my sleep. I rarely remember my dreams, especially when I smoke weed, but this dream in particular I remembered. I can still remember to this day. In that dream, I found myself in a hot-boxed room in front of a wall of smoke. Out stepped Andre Romelle Young, better known as Dr. Dre. In this dream, we smoked some blunts together and then told me that there was a special reason for his visit. Dre told me that he had come to deliver a message which came straight from God. In this message, you told me that I was to become a rapper along with my accounting study. He told me that as long as I never quit and put in the work, that I was gonna make it big; even saying that I was going to be the “White Snoop Dogg”. I wrote about what he had to say in my song “Lil Buddy” off my first mixtape, Idols. After that dream, I can tell you that it changed me forever, for the better. I hope I can meet Dr. Dre and all my idols one day and make fire raps with them.
