We had the good fortune of connecting with Lightning Beatz and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lightning, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
The best teacher in life is your own experience- Nipsey Hussle I feel that even beyond myself this is how my generation has always looked at life. That is what makes the generation so powerful. Always observing and absorbing information. Always adventurous living life dangerous but not recklessly. Im very hard headed myself in return that thickened my skin. I learned to roll with the punches and keep pushing no matter what. Prolly even before I came across this quote that’s just how I got down. I like the quote because it really does embodies the life we all live no matter what background we come from.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I produce music primarily but I’ll hop on the mic if I have something to say. I don’t focus on sounding like other industry people I just go with what feels good to me. That’s how I stand out. I’m not trying to ride the wave I’m trying to make them. So far I learned that you have to rely on yourself or select few because not everyone has your best interest in mind. With that being said don’t limit yourself and create solid bonds. Stay hungry and make sure your listening more than talking. The hustle is always grueling but sets the real apart from the fake. Lightning Beatz is I and I’m lightning beatz the possibilities are endless.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
All of the beaches and piers are a vibe. My favorite bar in imperial beach is a must. the hiking trails are very peaceful. Downtown the whole weekend. Honestly there is some much to do they might have to come back once or twice.
