Never Say Can't

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Liq makes beats, raps, throws parties, and has time to be a father amongst other things. He is a true business man that doesn’t know the word can't.

[As told to Why Blue Matters]

How long have you been in the game?

I've been involed in music since I was a kid, but only as of the past few yrs. have I been actually getting paid for what I do. so technically only a few yrs.

What's your greatest accomplishment so far in life?

MY KIDS I have 2 beautiful, healthy, smart kids; girl & boy Love ‘em 2 death. Other than them, my greatest & most difficult accomplishment is that I’ve managed to create a solid, respected name in the business world without a college degree while staying well respected through out the streets.


Tell me a little bit about yourself:

Under all the materialistic shit I’m jus a Average Joe, I love to travel as well as chill at the house wit my girl and the kids. Growing up I never went to the same school for more than 2 yrs, didn’t stay in the same city for more than 3! so I adapted to all environments. There's never a uncomfortable moment for me.

What's your ultimate goal in life?

I want my name to be a Brand....So well known u forget that I am a actual person. Like Walmart- that was a guy named Wally, Johnson & Johnson, etc, these are actual people.

What do you like most about being in the business?

The freedom!! My Dad once told me if u find something u love and find a way to make a living from it then its not considered a job.

What's the thought process behind your works?
-from personal experience?

Musically everything I do is from personal experience or situations. If I'm mad at the world I'll make mad ass songs if I’m feeling fly & my swag is on a hunid (hundred) thousand trillion then my music will reflect.

-mere creativity?
Creatively I just let it rip! Sometimes I write sometimes i dont just depends on how i feel.

What inspires and motivates you?

Seeing People close to me Succeed , if one week you kicking it with your folks then the nexts he all on mtv & bet that will motivate the shit outta you!

How was life changed for you since being you started as a rapper?

My life aint changed none. I always had ways of gettin money. Maybe a few people in the club mite recognize me from a video or something or a few more groupies in my face but other than that same ol same ol.

What would you be doing now, if you never started doing music?

I can't imagine that. That's like asking what I would be doing if I was never born. Thats how important music is to me.

What are you listening to in your ipod these days?

MySelf! and my potnas (friends)

What has been your favorite job you've done so far?

Promoting/throwing shows. Its like gettn paid to party! Cant beat that!

Does any negativity from the media ever affect you in anyway?

Never! I was Raised around negativity . Negativity makes a positve person stronger.

Any advice for those looking to pursue their dreams?

Stay Focused! And believe in YOURSELF cuz nobody will if u dont. AND take criticism for what its worth bad or good. If they say your music is wack work to be doper, if they say your music is dope except it but dont have content, there's ALWAYS someone better! REMEMBER THAT!

What do you want to be remembered by?

My Word(s) -- My word as a man and my words as an artist.

Anything else you would like the world to know about you?

I look mad most the time but im Cooler than a sunday breeze. I like long walks on the beach , spicy food and Humming Birds LoL NAW! For real tho I take my music serious and tho I MAKE music for the people i DO IT for ME! I dont know the difference from hiphop or rap or gangsta rap its ALL RAP MUSIC No! better yet its all MUSIC!
