Laila Mickelwait Battles Pornhub Over Child Sex Trafficking, Exploitation, & Rape [Interview]

Laila Mickelwait

Laila Mickelwait is a woman with a purpose. She is determined, relentless, prepared, and diligent with her goals. She is someone who doesn’t just think, she acts and executes. The most incredible part is this drive and work ethic isn’t for her personal gain – it’s for the gain of tens of thousands without a voice and ability to get it done themselves.

Lecrae On Convos With Kanye, KB Leaving, Unashamed Tour Returning, & More [Interview]

Lecrae

Last week we took a deep dive into Lecrae and his journey of restoration. The rapper opened up about his fight against the voices in his head, the self-doubt, and the loss of identity. The subject was definitely heavy and personal.

While the goal of telling a proper story reflecting one’s art is to sometimes highlight the more intense and vulnerable moments, every conversation should also have a lighter tone as well. The following article is Lecrae expounding on his relationships with Kanye West and Rapsody, talking about the Unashamed tour and artists, and finally giving his thoughts about KB leaving the label.

Lecrae Found Restoration After An Identity Crisis Left Him Feeling Like A Failure [INTERVIEW]

Lecrae

“When you get to the end, there’s nothing left to hide and you can be honest.” Sometimes the voices we hear the loudest are the ones in our own heads. Lecrae spent years battling these voices that were also warring with the ones raining down on his conscience from outside. Each outside voice was like an arrow with his name on it saying things like: “Sold his soul,” “of the world,” “manipulative,” “wolf,” and so on. They started piecing through the armor and damaging what was left of an already weakened defense.

Over the years we’ll make a series of stops along this journey we call life. Every time we veer off the road to hit a new destination, it’s an exit we make to start on a new path. As the scenario flashes before our eyes, sometimes we need to just pull over and soak in what’s really happening. For Wande, it’s her time to soak in the sights, and see how far she’s come. But before we get there, the story of how she got to this place is as remarkable as the one on where she’s headed.

Finally Comfortable In His Own Skin, GAWVI Is OK Being A ‘Heathen’ [Interview]

GAWVI

When you think of someone putting in the 10,000 hours required to master a craft, you think about some of the most gifted and talented professionals in the world. When history looks back to document these key moments and say, “This person is important because…” you see a definitive timeline of where they came from, how they got there, and how they transformed the world around them. In Christian music, this person is GAWVI, and with his album Heathen, he is trying to make a bridge between worlds that can never seem to align properly.

Wisdom that precedes age, that’s ‘Swaizy’. The Hawaiian-born artist hopes to celebrate the autobiographical spirit of ‘Hispanic influences and heavy southern trap’ within his music.
