In a candid interview, scene mainstay Lil Lotus shares lessons to be learned in his story of redemption. Crushing coke, downing drinks, and popping pills before the show even goes on has inevitable makings for a rock and roll redemption story. Musical success can particularly be the downfall for an artist who is still being haunted by the pain of the past, but Lotus proves that it is all about how you pick yourself up again and keep moving forward. In his short but eventful 25 years, the vocalist has become a mainstay at the intersection of experimental rap and post-hardcore.

LIL LOTUS’s tracks
By utilizing his seemingly limitless vocal range, Lotus draws from a vast array of metal , pop punk and hip-hop influences as he crafts a genre-shrugging atmosphere of melancholy with his depressively hedonistic lyrics. After years of fusing his raw, Auto-Tuned catharsis with heavy instrumentals, Lotus has seemingly achieved his desired goal of emo revival—he recently signed with Epitaph Records , the independent label known for housing a prestigious list of pop-punk, post-hardcore and emo bands. Recently, Lotus has been preoccupied with working on new music , which is set to be released later this year. It may seem like an overwhelming amount of projects, but Lotus prefers the musical freedom. He was just music. I just want to be music. When I got more into Linkin Park than those other bands, they made me want to listen to even heavier music. But I would listen to a lot of Warped Tour bands, too.
I would come back from one of our weekends together and they would ask how it was and I would talk about how amazing it was and what all we did. I know a guy who had a hobby of corrupting Mormon girls he was abused by his TBM parentsand I'm told you're both right. Joanna has written a good answer here. If she was anything like me, that idea is probably foreign, radical, confusing, interesting, and inspiring to her.
You should not be trying to be exclusive with one person, so go on dates with as many people as you can. It's in the Mormon DNA. If you are a Catholic girl dating a Mormon guy, then it may not be an issue with his parents.
