Louisiana has been the home for some of the most recent record-breaking musical acts in the world, such as NBA Youngboy, Lil Wayne, Kevin Gates, and Lil Boosie. Each of those artists presents a level of grit and toughness necessary to survive in a rough environment growing up in which music was their only way out of the hood.
Add Shreveport’s young 16-year phenom LiBand to that list. Whether it’s head boppin’ or melodic, his lyrics can be described as emotional, influential, and inspirational. LiBand intends to show the world how one can create a positive impact in a negative situation.
“Take your situation and make it better.” When asked what inspired him to go into music, “LiBand replied “lifestyle. My life is too much like a story; I wanted to turn it into art.”
As a new and upcoming artist, the world can expect this young mind to come with something harder. Something different. And something authentic. Know that he’s striving to be the best that he can be. Not just in music. Not only as LiBand. But as Malachi. Music serves as his vessel to do so. Within the upcoming years, be on the lookout to see the Louisiana rapper name among the greats of hip hop.
