Zomb: Exactly! Lil West is 100% something completely separate and always an insane mix of genres. Do you have any plans for music videos or visuals for tracks from this project?
Lil West: Hell yeah! I got a mini visualizer for “Barbie'' dropping today‼️ and a couple more mini music videos I’m dropping later next month.
Zomb: Let’s go! I know the supporters are gonna be so excited and I’m definitely looking forward to the visuals. We’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled. What’s the 2023 live schedule looking like for lil west? Do you have any planned dates or are you interested in performing?
Lil West: Yuh! There could be a video for every song we will see though. 2023 will definitely have more new music forsure, probably have a deluxe or a sequel to this tape! No shows yet will probably start planning for that real soon for the summer! Definitely open to shit like that.
Zomb: We love that! The world needs Lil West to touch down and give us some more insane performances. A deluxe would also be so fire. Everyone always asks you about your Soundcloud history but you’ve progressed so much since than. Are there any artists you’d like to work with again from that era or are you fully moving on to new things?
Lil West: Yeah this year I wanna drop a lot more and perform more I still feel like im such a mystery. Definitely a couple guys I will always wanna work with from da SoundCloud days! 100GECS and night lovell! They are so creative and unique to me, but other than that definitely onto new things.
Zomb: Lil West always is always progressing! That’s really good to hear man. One of the last questions I had for you is music aside, what keeps you grounded when you aren’t creating? What keeps you sane outside of music.
Lil West: Forever & Always. I think the lifestyle just keeps me grounded. Shopping, partying, girls, taking trips & my friends. That's what I'm on when all the work is done.
Zomb: Honestly couldn’t agree more, life is too short to not enjoy the finer things sometimes. This last question might come out of left field but as I was doing research for our conversation I couldn’t help but ask who was your favorite skater growing up? Do you still skate every now and again?
Lil West: Way too short and always room for more experiences. Oh shit I wasn’t expecting that one, I got few for real! Probably Corey Duffel because of how fucking fearless and extreme he was, he damn near was a Rockstar in my eyes! Of course Chris Haslam, I think he was better than Rodney Mullen for real. Chris did funky shit on the board I never seen anybody do. Last would probably be Antwuan Dixon, I met him on facetime recently while I was at a festival. I had a hard ass Death Wish board by him when he was with them. Growing up I was obsessed with Terry Kennedy too, he was fly as hell while he was skating! My skateboarding days are so over, I wanted to be a pro skater before rap though! It’s like riding a bike you never forget how to do it.
Zomb: So many good names there the nostalgia is flooding in man! Wow such a wonderful response but it's exactly just like a bike, you might have noodle legs but you’ll be alright lol. Huge shout out everyone mentioned there, really was curious about that one. Big shout out to you for taking some time to sit down with us because it was an honor. Do you have any last words of motivation or shoutouts before we log off?
Lil West: All them guys are big big legends! Could never forget em! Facts though I would be sore as hell when I’m done. I appreciate y’all for real. Shoutout to my team, day 1’s and everybody that played a part with this new album. Boss up and ball hard are my words for the world!
Zomb: Well fucking said! Huge shoutout to Lil West and make sure you go stream "In My Dreams…" available on all platforms right now!
