Who Is Dominic Lord?

His Single "Pierce"

"When I wrote that joint, it was like a fashion sketch to me. That's why I apply fashion to music. I don't really believe in spending 20,000 hours writing a song. Maybe if it calls for it. But if you get out that initial thought, then it's more real. Someone's long time might take someone a month to do something. It'll take me two days. Fashion shit happens fast.

"I wrote "Pierce" in probably five minutes flat, and then recorded it in fifteen minutes. Then I had to edit it. I produce, so I go in and take sounds. I boosted it, you'll hear it. Hudson Mohawke did that beat, it was incredible. That was a blessing. That came through Steven Victor. Steven and Hudson are cool, and I got the beat and I loved the beat. I fucks with him OD.

"It has to be fresh. I haven’t heard anything that sounds like “Pierce.” When it came out, it was fresh, it was random. People gravitated towards it and the video’s incredible. I just appreciate it, I’m thankful for it. I’m thankful that I’ve landed on the blogs and stuff like that. I really don’t pay too much attention to anything else but the bigger picture. I love it though.

"The video means a lot to me. It means many different things. I kind of take it as my real. I take it as an introduction to me. To me, it’s not actually a music video, it's a fashion project. That’s why I picked the fashions that way and then I altered things. It was just dope to see it, and it was inspired. It was like a homage.

"The video abruptly ends on 'Realize,' it’s just impactful, to just stop it at that. The abrupt stop wasn’t going on. I’m always thinking on some over-world shit, I’m adding different elements. Especially since it’s my first song, I didn’t want to give it away. It’s like your kids, I didn’t want to give it away. If I didn’t make music, I would of still done that video, but maybe I would’ve tried to design the fashions. So, in my coming videos, I’ll show more of what I wanna really show to express my songs."
