Jus Lyon Interview


MR100: What's good Jus Lyon? Where did you get your stage name from?


JL: Well my real name is Justin Lyon so I just decided to cut my first name short and go with that plus my label Smart Mouth Records encouraged me to do so and with the show Empire and them using the Lyon dynasty I figure since Lyon is my official last name let me try it and its been really working


MR100: I see you reppin Durham, North Carolina, are you a big fan of J. Cole?


JL: I'm Not a big big J. Cole fan but I am a fan of some of his music he does have some dope skills and does put his point across always but I like J. Cole he makes good music you can relate to.


MR100: On your single "My Click" I hear a lot of energy on that song, do you always have that much energy on all your songs?


JL: Most of the time yes especially when I'm performing because I wanna keep the crowd on edge now as for My Click that was intentionally suppose to be a high energy song because I'm referring to my squad my team my label my click who has been by my side since day one so you can say i kinda always have that energy level


MR100: Which do you prefer more, recording or performing?


JL: That's hard to choose from because I love recording which means I can always try my new material when I perform but I am a big fan of performing because it lets people see my true side and how I'm so energetic and its like when I have the mic in my hand on stage I'm a total different person so I'm going to decide with performing because I can do a lot with that 


MR100: What other talents do you have besides rapping?


JL: I'm not only a rapper I'm a artist as well I like to draw and do digital art I create most of my single and mixtape covers I have a wide selection if art I have drawn my main thing I like to draw is tattoos for some reason the detail and shape and size of tattoo drawing gives me chills but you could say I'm multi talented


MR100: Name 3 rappers dead or alive you would love to do songs with.


JL: Eminem, Biggie Smalls, Slick Rick, and I had to throw in one more Yelawolf


MR100: With the release of your project "Lyrical Intentions", which songs are your best ones you liked recording?


JL: I would have to say My Click, Got It, Let Me Ride, Wild, and Visions because they all have some energy or tell a story behind it


MR100: Do you want to get signed by a major label or do you prefer to stay indie?


JL: Which ever one comes first so if I get signed by a major label I will try and get my team on right behind me but if i stay indie the grind is just gonna go harder so either way it don't matter I will make good music and keep the people going

MR100: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years as an artist?

JL: As a artist I see my self making major moves looking out for me my family and my team and giving back to the less fortunate but I will mainly be making dope music for people to listen and relate to


MR100: Name the first thing that comes to mind when Hip Hop is mentioned.
