LVL: So, what have you been up to recently?

Lozinky: Recently I have been producing beats with Lozinky Productions  — all styles of beats from hip hop to grime, folk, EDM and house — for those who need or want any kind of beat I can produce to their needs. I also have been working on lots of new music to get ready for when I can start gigging again and release to the world.

LVL: How did you get into being a rapper?

Lozinky: I got into music through my uncle Danny who also is a musician. He use to run a music bus to help get the teenagers off the streets. I met other rappers and singers through the project and it went from there. Eventually I got to know more people in the industry and that’s where it all began.

LVL: Who are your main influences?

Lozinky: My main influences are 2pac as his music was mainly for the people, lots of wisdom and knowledge and I can really relate to that. Also Biggie Small — he was amazing.  Eminem also, as he grew up in poverty and always pushed himself no matter how hard the situation was — plus his music is genius. Lady Gaga too because she speaks for women — she is a strong woman with so much love and passion for her music and I can really relate to what she’s been through.

LVL: What’s it like being one of the only female rappers around?

Lozinky: Being a female rapper from the North West is different — you have to just be yourself and keep yourself going. The majority of rappers from around here are male rappers. As a female rapper I feel amazing doing what I do — it’s always been my passion — and hopefully I can inspire other females who want to get into rapping.

LVL: What advice do you have for any young girls wanting to become a rapper?

Lozinky: Be yourself, be strong and believe you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. Never let anyone say different. Also, write stories and turn them into rap — put all your emotions into your writing and create a powerful message through your music. Take advice but never be told what to do!

LVL: What are your plans for the future?

Lozinky: My plans for the future are to finally be where I have been pushing myself to be — America! I’d love to go there and perform all my music, finally meeting all my music fans I have over there.
