L.A.D., known to many as La the Darkman, wears many hats in throughout the course of the day. Whether he’s running Aphilliates Music Group and letting the ink dry on their new deal with Sony or hitting the booth to record for any one of his upcoming EPs or album, L.A.D. stays working. That work ethic is what’s allowed L.A.D. to remain relevant in a game where a lot of his peers back in the ‘90s are gone and/or disgruntled at where the game is today. Not only has La helped make Gangsta Grillz a staple in hip-hop beyond the mixtape circuit, but he’s managed careers and written for artists like Trey Songz and Nelly. Having just released La Paraphernalia, an EP of newer music that goes deeper than his vast vault of mixtapes, the Gun Ru vet took some time to sit down with ProfileWild to talk about A.M.G.’s new Sony venture, his recording process, the new music, and of course his classic debut, Heist of the Century in this exclusive interview.
