Yo, its LeXXah Drew baby, still drawing my masterpieces in the ever so trending & lively ATL. The business is the usual, on the music and the visual art. But this time around I’ve elevated my game, so I hope you’re ready for the ride.
So, this is the follow up interview since the One on One Interview in 2011. How has everything been rolling since our last meeting?
Let me first start out by saying that I’ve been Blessed. God has really been proving himself over and over again. A lot of life changing scenarios have taken place this year and I have been able to keep a leveled head and stay the course. So, its been challenging since our last meeting. With all that’s been going on though, I’ve still been able to elevate my game, on and off the court.
I’m still hoopin’. Its off season, but I’m still stayin’ fit, sexy and healthy. Gotta make them abs POP!! At ALL times. Lol. I’ve started a NEW blog called, “LeXXah Drew Blog Baby”, everybody whose reading this, should go and check it out. You get a little bit of everything on there from sports talk, music talk, songwriting and production talk, my visual art and videos, my NEW “AWE Steppin’ 1 On 1” Videos, Motivational talk, poetry, my new comic book, etc. I could keep it going. But see for yourself. I don’t like telling, I wanna show you. Just click the link, www.lexxahdrew.wordpress.com
As far as the music, my focus has been on songwriting, vocal production, vocal arranging and reference vocals. I’ve been preparing for the upcoming 1st quarter, to place these songs and I’ve been enjoying the journey. My team (the Alexis Wilson Song Factory LLC.) and I have been writing for both male and female artists in many genres doing what we do best, perfecting our craft.
My mode for this year has been if I think it, let me activate it and I just do it like Nike and make it stellar. One of the main goals is in everything that I do stand out, be unique and be clever from marketing, promoting to image and overall presentation. That’s the only way you’ll get anywhere in this world in a big way.
talk about politics. How do you feel about President Obama's re-election?
I feel good. I am a Georgia Voter and I do have my voting sticker. And yes, I did vote for Barack Obama. This election was very important. This election was literally about the 10% rich abusing their power even more and the conditions of the middle class and lower getting worse, plain & simple. It was a battle of the class. I thank God that Obama was re-elected, it was close. Obama is clearly for the people, the masses, the well-being of the country for the most part. A good leader looks out for the flock, not just 10% of the flock. This election has allowed people to see more intimately the true colors of people in power who have the money to have a voice in how this country operates. Corporations should not run the country. If Obama wasn’t in office, déjà vu slavery is what we would be looking at right now. Also, for those people who think racism does not exist, I hope that after the election it was reiterated to you that
it is very much alive! Just wanted to point that out. I could say more about this question, but I think I will stop there. Politics can get too crazy, but the right man is in office. There is much to be done, so I’m definitely praying for him. He definitely has a lot on his hands just dealing with congress alone, not to mention those that have who jacked up the country in the first place and are now being told to help clean it up. Lol. That to me, is quite fair and they can afford it compared to those who are living check to check. Aight, I’m finished and I’m still smiling.
Do you believe in love at first site? What is the perfect soul mate for you?
Awee man, you switched it up to love!!!!!!!!! Yea, I believe in love at first site, not for myself, but for someone else. That’s really not my style. Now, I hope you’re not setting me up for a matchmaker interview. The perfect soulmate for me, just being honest, doesn’t exist. Perfect isn’t realistic its more of a fantasy or something you dream about. I think its moreso about accepting a man for his imperfections eclusing of course, his desire to get better. Neither of us are perfect, but the bond and connection between us is strong. Where he is weak I am strong and vise versa. Definitely the foundation should be agape’, friendship and love (physical attributes: caring, respect, trust, loyalty etc.) But definitely a solid soulmate for me would be a man with vision, intellect and imagination. And it wouldn’t hurt for him to know how to play & talk basketball, football, tennis, weightlift, swim etc. I love sports, no, I really love sports. That’s definitely mandatory. Aight, I’m finished with that!!
What is your favorite Sunday meal?
I don’t think this is a fair question. Shooo, ribs, cornbread, barbeque baked beans, green beans and mustard potato salad. That’s one. Spicey baked chicken wings and pancakes. That’s two. And to keep it short and sweet Imma add Popeyes and the Chessecake Factory. Aight, I’m done.
What is your favorite color and why?
Interesting that you ask this because my favorite color is any color but pink. I’m a visual artist so I can answer this question like this. I despise the color pink though. Lol.
What projects are you currently working on?
I’m working with some really good producers, writing some stellar lyrics/hooks/full songs to their tracks along with my writing team.
I’m working on my NEW “AWE Steppin’ 1 On 1” Videos that are soon to come out. I am re-teaching old steps and teaching new ones. I’m pretty excited about that. Steppin’ fans have been putting in special requests. You can hit up the old videos at www.youtube.com/user/AweAlexisWilson
I’m working on my NEW comic book and new superhero based off of me. It is called, “LeXXah Drew, the 7th Drew Supreme” You can check out the actual comic on my songwriting music page at www.facebook.com/LeXXahDrew, Also, you can hit up the intro video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BP3A8ocWJXI&feature=plcp, the comic book series, character development, storyline and illustrations are authored and illustrated by me. I hope all who are reading enjoy it and will follow it. It is rated E for Everyone!
I’m working on promoting one of my newest projects, my mixtape, which I just finished and posted on the internet. It is called, “Show It On Tha Mic” LeXXtape. Its an acapella stellar vocal mixtape that I believe has never really been done before. Its very unique because most mixtapes you hear, if not all, have music tracks. I decided to give my LeXXtape a unique twist. After all, vocals are an instrument. Many people forget that and take for granted the qualities of true vocalists who can really rock it on tha mic. I’m cold at what I do, confidence not cockiness. Please everyone, go and check it out and
DOWNLOAD my LeXXtape. It is AVAILABLE on Datpiff @ http://www.datpiff.com/LeXXah-Drew-Show-It- On-Tha-Mic-Acapella-LeXXtape-by-LeXXah-Dr-mixtape.324476.html, or you can DOWNLOAD it on my Reverbnation page @ www.reverbnation.com/LeXXahDrew. I have a few familiar songs on there as well as originals.
I’m working on 3 NEW Visual Art concentrations, a Nude Series, A Love Vs. Lust Series and a Sports series in which I don’t yet have the name of just yet, but I am confident it will come. If you have peeped by now, I utilize all my gifts. I try not to play favoritism with any of them. God has Blessed me tremendously with them, so I have to use them. I do sell my artwork. I do custom pieces as well, working in mediums that aren’t as popular as the usual suspect mediums like acrylic and watercolor paint. That is going well, but it is a marathon. You can check out my skillz on canvas on my visual art page, www.facebook.com/AlexisLRVisualArtist I also have mini documentary videos with a few of the art pieces I have drawn that talk about the process in which I took to arrive at the finished piece.
So, this is what all I’m currently working on. I have a lot going on and yes its challenging, but I love it.
What inspired these projects to begin?
I am always creating, coming up with new concepts and tactics and ventures to do to occupy and utilize my talents. I’m always inspired. Its just who I am. I look at myself as a walking inspiration to myself. And anything that is uplifting to the Black community or mankind, is definitely an inspiration. There are so many things out here in this world that degrade a person/being everyday. I just want to be one of the few who do the opposite. The key is just making it Hot and easy to digest.
How can people contact you?
There are many ways to contact myself and my team. Any of my sites that I have listed above, people can definitely reach me through those avenues. For songwriting, visual art, graphics, printing, etc., just call 678.744.5396 and an agent of the Alexis Wilson Song Factory LLC., and/or Tinsley’s LeXarT LLC. Graphics & Printing will be available.
Of course, a huge shout out to real love, God, Jesus, Kervin T., my family, friends, supporters and fans of what I do. The love and support is always appreciated and means a whole lot. More than you know.
Do you have any last words for the readers?
