Lawsy, a North Carolina singer and rapper, has combined hip hop and R&B to come up with a new sub genre, “Sexnb.” After going viral with his recent single, “Hotel,” the rising artist looks to keep pushing his unique sound forward and become one of the greats. Get to know Lawsy below:
It feels good to see all the work pay off. All of these years and now it’s working.
I had no clue. I came up with the whole melody by accident. My voice cracked when I was recording it, and I heard how it sounded and kept going with it.
I have been doing every type of sound for a while. I’ve done trap, pop, and everything. After finding my two favorite types of music, it was about putting that together like R&B and trap.
I listen to so much trap music and so much R&B, and I can’t pick between them. I put them together when I’m making music. Maybe in the hook, I’ll sing it or in the verse I’ll rap. I’ll mix it and all of that and call it “Sexnb.”
So important. It helps with everything and being able to do everything. Being able to add your own stuff when in the studio and explain what you want is super important.
It’s really cool. It’s a lot of people I used to watch all of the time when I was younger so it is really cool seeing them use my song on TikTok.
I always loved music. I used to play guitar and drums all of the time. I decided to make it so I got on my computer and started.
Back then, I’d say Lil Skies. I started listening to a lot R&B too at the same time, so I’d say like Tyrese and then Tony Shhnow and 10kdunkin.
I don’t really know to be honest. I’d say Keith Sweat honestly. I really would want to be in a studio with him.
It’s probably the most important part. Being consistent and making something different that people like. Those are the two most important things you have to do.
I’d say it’s more than just the music. I spend a lot of time marketing and doing the TikToks. More than 50 percent of it is doing the other stuff. That’s a big part of the process.
More videos from DotComNirvan, some singles, and a mixtape.
Hopefully making good music that people like. I want to stop caring about the marketing and all of that and drop music I like.
It’s been just music right now.
