We had the good fortune of connecting with Lewnati and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lewnati, what do you want people to remember about you?
I’d like for people to remember me for my bravery, my fearlessness, & my determination. I’d like to go down in history as a man who not only believed in himself but the people around him as well. The savior of the broken. A mighty warrior who defeated his demons and all non-believers. A man of humility who preached strength in vulnerability and gave people hope. I want to be the example that anything is possible.
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 believe in being innovative. I groove to my own drum. I think that’s what really separates me from other creatives. I’m not afraid to try new things. I’m a visionary. I can see the potential in my creations before I ever jot them down on paper. I love when I share ideas with colleagues and they tell me they don’t see it working, and then it works. It’s imperative that you trust yourself before anyone else. Only you know what you are truly capable of. But don’t get me wrong, you will fail. That’s inevitable. But never give up. Never let it humble you. Turn the losses into lessons. Look at it as new intel to assist you on your path to glory. I’ve been making music for 15+ years. I’ve had the same dream since I was 8 years old. I’m extremely talented, but talent only gets you but so far in this game. You have to be driven, you have to stay consistent, and you have to understand success isn’t about the destination, but the journey.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Definitely Little 5 Points. One of the first places I explored after moving to Atlanta was Little 5 Points. It holds a special place in my heart. After that, the Beltline, near the old Fourth Ward skate park. It’s a vibe over there. Of course we’d end up bar hopping on Edgewood and Peter St. Definitely would have to stop through The Battery at night. And on Sunday, Bonfire ATL always provides the vibes.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to shoutout my parents. Who have always allowed me to by myself. Their constant support gives me the courage to keep going. They raised me to believe that anything was possible and instilled invaluable knowledge that continues to guide me along my journey today. Xoxo
