An exclusive interview with our favorite new Florida rapper.
The Lord works in mysterious ways. Just ask Lambo, a Miami MC on the come-up who's been getting money long before he picked up a mic or started dating LeBron James' mother. Lambo and Gloria James have been dating for a while now, and the happy couple announced their engagement last December. Since then you've most likely seen him stunting on Instagram or heard the jokes about him being Lebron's future stepfather. But you've never gotten to know the man behind the flashy jewelry and the strictly-yachts-and-private-jets lifestyle. Thats's because Lambo has never given an interview—until now.
You may be wondering: With the whole world beating down Lambo's door, how did Complex snag this exclusive? After all, the man has over 12,000 IG followers and thousands of unread messages on his phone. Well, remember that part about the Lord working in mysterious ways? When we reached out to Lambo, he was riding around and getting it when the ash from his blunt fell... right on our email. Sensing the hand of fate at work, he hit us back right away.
And so it came to pass that Lambo and a small entourage dropped by the Red Bull Guest House in South Beach amidst the madness of Ultra Music Fest weekend. Lambo laid his phone down, gripped his double cup and kicked that uncut realness. He talked about his hustling days in Liberty City, his inspiration to make a mixtape with all 2Pac instrumentals, and his plans to kill the game with his own label, Lambino Ent. Relax and take notes.
The whole world is wondering who is this new MC Lambo? Where did he come from? What is he bringing to the table? It’s 2014, you’re out here flourishing, you're in the studio, you’re making tracks. How did you get to this point?
Believing in myself for one. I’m not going to say I’m really like musical like I grew up musical and all this stuff. Me and my friends, we grew up on the corner beat boxing and rapping against each other and we thought we had whole other type of talents.
Due to an incarceration of mine I learned how to get on into music, tune into myself, learn myself a little more and it built on a kind of music career because I found myself saying stuff on paper that I wanted to say out loud. That’s kind of how my music career came about. It’s not like I planned on being an emcee, or the best emcee, or a magnificent emcee. I really was just like, “Hey I’m pretty good at this because the words matching together." I kinda like the way the words was matching together.
Then when the words became a personality to it. I kinda built myself to be an open person. I caught all this knowledge, wisdom, overstanding and that taught me how to be open and it got me in that little grind a little bit. I couldn’t do too much in prison so I stuck with it. I continued to write words and when I got out—you're pretty much familiar with E-Class? He’s over at Poe Boy Entertainment and stuff. He’s a good friend of my father’s [and] a good friend of mine, watching me come up and stuff like that. So when I got out I figured if I’m going to do music I might as well deal with someone I can put an opinion on, someone I feel like I can trust. Because I wasn’t really never trying to just do music for money. Cause you can tell without no deal I know how to get money. So—that’s not the problem.
I see that chunky wrist.
Yeah, I do this sometimes, man. Sometimes I do it. It just makes me feel good. I like to step out. You know I mean? Some guys just do it because they gotta do it. Some guys do it to get the girls, you know what I mean? I do this because I’m young, fly, and flashy. So I'm gon' do this type of stuff. Sometimes I might have on 10 of them. It doesn't make me though.
So you grew up in Miami?
Yeah I grew up in Miami. I grew up in the eye of Miami. If you was in a hurricane—you know how every hurricane that has an eye? I grew up in the eye. Like, the gulliest, the drug using-est, I mean, the mom prostituting for money to keep lights on. Like, that’s Lambo. That’s where I come from. You know I mean? Drug dealing, man. Killing, man. Whoever know, probably raping, man. It was the gutter, man. I come from that. I think you gotta say you proud of where you from, when you know yourself.
I grew up in the eye of Miami. If you was in a hurricane—you know how every hurricane that has an eye? I grew up in the eye. Like, the gulliest, the drug using-est, I mean, the mom prostituting for money to keep lights on. Like, that’s Lambo. That’s where I come from.
When you get to know yourself, you can understand yourself and say, “Hey man, I’m from there. I love that I’m from there. Because obviously if I wasn’t from there I probably wouldn’t have learned what I know to be in front of these cameras. To even make y’all want to come out and see a handsome young man like me. It's cool though. Yeah I’m from Miami.
I heard about neighborhoods like Liberty City, where Luke came up—
That’s where I’m from! I’m from Liberty City. Pork ‘n’ Beans projects, Liberty City—all that. That’s my area. I’m from Liberty City. It was in between Liberty City and Brown Sub [Brownsville] because my grandmother, she stayed in Brown Sub, which was close to Martin Luther King Park. And my auntie that I stayed with as a young kid, she stayed in Liberty City. So both of them were ghetto. Both of them were somewhere you want to make it out and be somebody.
I ain’t going to say it’s the worst place in the world because you got bums sleeping on the ground out here on South Beach, and they probably in a miserable state of mind. My hood could be a hood, but hey man, this ain’t the worst place.
That’s real. I’ve been seeing them out here all weekend.
It be like that. It's just not meant to judge people. You can’t judge people. Just live your life.
Luke came out of there—Live Crew and the Ghetto Style DJs, right?
Yeah, yeah and let me tell you some honest stuff. As big as Luke is for Miami, and I come from the part of Miami where you gots to be up on game. And whatever you’re trying to do, if you ain’t equipped with it, you’re gonna get rolled over. As the music part of Liberty City or Miami, I only knew the history of Luke because he stood out as an intelligent brother to me. And he made the music. He made the girls pop. He made them pop that pussy. He made them do what they do.
But I never knew the real history to be like, “Oh I’m an artist that knows so deep about music.” No, no, no, no, no, I’m building the grind as I go. I’m deep into me. That’ll make me catch the game on however it come and that’s how it go. But Luke did a lot of wonderful stuff, man, and shout out to Luke. He’s a real cool guy. Every time I run into him he always cool. And I’m right there, right up the street from Luke.
So growing up in Miami did you know all the other artists from Miami like Trick [Daddy] and [Rick] Ross? Did you run into them along the way?
I mean I knew Trick because Trick used to come down to Liberty City where I was from. And, you know, the business my family was in, every rapper wanted to be around them. Like every rapper wanted to be them. My family, we was the street rappers. You know I mean? All the rappers knew they had to come through Five-Eight and 15th. That’s in Liberty City. That’s one of the worst streets you can go down.
That’s your corner?
That ain’t my corner. That’s me and my family business spot. That was our business spot at one time, 58 and 15th. You know I mean? It was a hell of a street. It was a lot dead presidents walking on that street. You know I mean? That’s how I knew Trick. Cool rapper, man. I hope his career, you know what I mean, bring back the light on it. Do good, man. That’s to every artist.
Ross was out of Carol City and there was also another guy up there in Carol City that Ross talks about a lot. Cool guy, man. So he was kind of into the business my family was in. So all the rappers wanted to be around him. I never crossed paths with Ross to say I know him but, I knew Ross as an artist, as an entertainer, and as a Black young man that’s making paper. So that’s how I know Ross and he a cool guy to me, man. I love his grind. You know I mean? I’m just man enough to say what’s true. That's all it is. But shout out to him. He’s from Miami and I’m from Miami. I just hope his grind keeps going. Much success to him. Shout out to MMG, man. All them boys over there.
I never crossed paths with Ross to say I know him but, I knew Ross as an artist, as an entertainer, and as a Black young man that’s making paper. So that’s how I know Ross and he a cool guy to me.
I love his grind.
So you mentioned you were incarcerated for a while, was that when you got more focused on music?
That’s when I found out that I could make words go together. I had a lot of time on my hands. I had seven years to do—that’s a blessed number, too. That’s God’s number. Tupac used to love that number, seven. That’s crazy because I’m doing my mixtape on nothing but 2Pac instrumentals and I’m finding a lot of numbers that Pac talked about just right there in my life. Like, I did seven years. I got out in 2007, you know I mean? That was crazy, man. And I take a lot of that stuff for real. And as they get my music they’ll get to know what I’m talking about down the line. So you know [being in jail] gave you a lot of time to think about yourself. I got sexy in there. You know what I mean? A little sexy, a little bit.
In the weight room, huh?
Yeah. I just built up for the womens, you know I mean? Little sexy stuff. South Beach. It was time to myself, it was cool. I got to learn all types of understanding. Learned myself. Look at me, baby. I look good. I did pretty good for myself. But it was cool, man. That’s how I learned to put words together. And them words kept me going.
I used to read a lot of interviews, man. I used to read Biggie—God rest his soul—I used to read some of his interviews, man. I used to read 2Pac interviews. I used to read about when Puff Daddy used to talk to interviewers, Suge Knight, Snoop Dogg—all the guys, man. Even down here, man. When I was away, you had Trick really out here and I used to read some of Trick’s interviews. Even Trina, and some of the females man. Mia X, I used to read her interviews. So I had a lot of time to really prepare myself for this industry, to be able to come out here and make the money out of it, but just be prepared not to get caught into it. So that’s how I learned how to get into this music.
You mention you have a mixtape coming that’s all 2Pac instrumentals. Is that your first mixtape?
That’s my first mixtape and I’m going to kill the game.
Aw man. You should've said “Oh shit.” [Laughs]
Aw shit. Listen, first of all let’s premiere the mixtape on Complex. Can I just put that out there right now? What can you tell us about the records on there?
I will tell you this. Just one thought came up: I was going to name the mixtape Warning, like just for a warning. You know, just Warning. And however they take it from there they can take it. That just speaks to the game. Let them know, like, it’s a warning. I’m not looking for no acceptance. It’s a warning, that’s all. I mean, if you like my personality, you like my character, you like me as an artist, you like me as an actor. You know I mean? It’s just a warning, man.
What's the warning about? Are you warning these other rappers in the game, like, "Lambo’s coming." Is it like that?
[Laughs] It’s more a warning like... You had Kendrick Lamar for seven Grammys if I'm not mistaken. He didn't win, but hey—I’m proud of that brother for getting that close. And I thought about that. I said, it’s no disrespect to no artist or nothing, but I thought about it. Man, you got wonderful artists that’s entertaining like [Lil] Wayne. You got artists like Eminem. You got artists like Rick Ross. I mean, you got artists that’s coming up, even right now, like Drake. Wonderful artists that put words together wonderful, you know I mean? And here come a guy from Compton—y'know I mean? I don’t know, my testimony real. My struggle real deep. So him being from Compton or close—even if you ain’t getting into activities you had to be seeing something. He was nominated for seven Grammys, and his music is real.
You had Kendrick Lamar for seven Grammys if I'm not mistaken. He didn't win, but hey—I’m proud of that brother... And I sat back and looked at that. I said, Hey man, well my mixtape gonna be a warning. Because I’m coming like this guy. And I mean, I’m coming harder than this guy.
It says something. The words that go together, it fit in there right. It’s more realness. And you would figure, like with hip-hop, it’s more entertaining, but here come a guy that spits real soul music—like myself—nominated for seven Grammys. And I sat back and looked at that. I said, Hey man, my mixtape gonna be a warning. Because I’m coming like this guy. And I mean, I’m coming harder than this guy.
I respect what this guy doing, but if you listen to my music, man... Hey, I believe in myself, so my music is the bomb. Ain’t no disrespect to no artist but that’s just one that I’m thinking about so far. It might be 10, 20 of them. But I think that “Warning” fits in there.
Using all Pac instrumentals for your first mixtape sends a strong message. Is Pac the artist who made you want to become a rapper?
Yeah, man. I gotta tell the truth. I won’t even say "artist" for 2Pac. That was a brother that knew himself, man, knew how to master the career. He was so ahead of knowledge, that’s why he was so dominant to just demolish the lames. You know I mean?
With music, I think more realness got to be talked. Like, my interview, this shit gon' be the bomb. You know I mean? Because just how a woman will hear how you communicate and know, like, Hey, this brother for real. They could have one personality, they could have an opinion on you that says, Damn, this guy just fucking crazy. That’s how I see it, man. And it be like that sometimes.
And I think Pac was a brother that understood how to take the knowledge, the wisdom, the understanding. I feel like he knew how to put The Bible in metaphors, which is spiritually, physically, or mentally. He knew how to do that. When you know yourself, you’re gonna do whatever you can do to master it. So Pac really influenced me a lot because I was going through a lot of that stuff he was saying at that time. I’m talking about a lot of it. So I felt that brother. I felt a lot of brothers back then, that’s why my style of rap, you might hear like that.
I get criticized a lot—not big time—but they say, “Oh, he sounds like Pac,” “Oh, that’s too much like Pac.” But, you know, you got Atlanta rappers—no disrespect to them brothers too, man. You got the young guys, Migos, just came out, they sound like Future. Or Future sound like them. You got RichHomieQuan just came out. RichHomie Quan sound like Future, or maybe Future sounds like RichHomie. Whichever way they want to put it. All of them are Black young men getting they grind on, understanding their career. They doing it. But I just feel like a lot of rappers from Atlanta, if you sit back and think, a lot of them sound alike.
So 2Pac was made off the West Coast, I’m made off the South. I ain’t been to the West a lot, only when I travel to L.A. or to Vegas. I love them two spots. I got partners out in L.A. that all we do is kick it. Hollywood Hills, you know, that’s my life.
What I learned is people get shocked and scared by stuff they don’t understand. Or when they understand it and they can’t control it, they get paranoid. Like me, I know I make a lot of people paranoid. Only because they think I’m uneducated and then when they communicate with me, they see that I’m educated. And they already like my style and my personality. So once that kickin' in, then they gotta think—nobody believe you a genius until they see it, but these motherfuckers better get ready to put Lambo in the genius book. Cause they gon' see it.
Shout out to 2Pac, man. I wish that brother was here, 'cause I guarantee I would’ve been part of the Outlawz and still doing it big like this. And it would’ve been easier to get in the game because it would’ve been a real person that understand how the music flow, and not so much of a circle trying to deny real. And that's shout out to 2Pac, man. And shout out to Biggie too, because I love that brother. I started listening to him like that [snaps fingers] too. So shout out to them two brothers, and that was my influence man. And that’s the only brother I’ma say in this rap game. They only one that influence me. The only one and however they want to put it, they can put it. That's what it is.
Nobody believe you a genius until they see it, but these MFs better get ready to put Lambo in the genius book.
Nothing wrong with being influenced by a legend. But the sound of rap has changed a lot since the '90s. How do you see the game right now and what are you trying to bring to it?
Really, right now in the game, I love how it's a lot of money flowing around. I love that part of the game. That excite me to the utmost. I love that. With artists, I guess you need different kind of acts. Everybody's gonna do what they do. You need different acts because you need the game to keep going. But when you talk about someone being history and legendary, you got to count them as they come. It may take 10 years to get another 2Pac in the game, it may take 10 years, 11 years, to get another Biggie in the game, but now you’re getting Ross. It took him 13 years to come right now. Pass another 10 years, but I guarantee I'll make that lane come back real.
What I’m bringing back to the game is realness, understanding. Women’s learn to just don’t fall so quick. Brothers learning, like, Yo, make a million, make two million, make 20 million, but understand the millions. I’m even bringing back to the game communication. If I could bring communication to the game I could stop a lot of hatred. So me, Lambo, that’s what I’m bringing back. I ain’t saying the game missing anything, cause I ain’t judging nobody. But me, on my records, you hear my mixtape, you hear this interview right now what I’m doing, it’ll always stand on reality. Ain’t no paper, no pen—I don’t care about none of that. I may have to look at this phone one time to get your name again correct, but that’s just being honest. But no make up stuff, cause it's real. I like to give it to them from the soul. I like someone to understand me. If it’s something I say and it ain’t that much of role model with me then you got to deal with it. It might be something to let you see, build yourself up more. If I fuck up then you catch me and you do better. That's how that go.
Right now, artists has got to understand they’re a star. You’ve got to understand that shit, you’ve gotta know that shit, you’ve gotta believe that shit. So that’s what I want to bring to the game. You’ve gotta believe that shit. Anybody can make music, but how much do you believe in that shit? You could be legendary. Like me, I know I’m a motherfucking genius, so whoever could bite on that, whoever riding with it, you gon' see because they’ll gonna do numbers. And every time you hear me say numbers, that mean money. That mean we calculating money. Feel me? Every time you hear me say numbers in an interview, it could be another year from now and another interview, when I say numbers, when I say we getting into more numbers, that means we’re getting into more money.
I’m trying to calculate that gold you got on right now. That chain looks heavy as hell.
It's alright. It's just something to wear to look fly.
Just some walking-around shit.
Yeah it’s pretty cool. This ain’t something you just do now. Because you got artists in the game that got deals and can’t do this. So this joint ain’t something you do. You got to know you a legend, baby. You got to know you a star. So yeah, they can probably do this. Jay Z shit bigger than mine, Plies shit bigger than mine, I don’t know if I recall—oh, cool guy in Atlanta—2 Chainz, his bigger than mine. And more props to them brothers.
You got to know you a legend, baby. You got to know you a star. So yeah, Jay Z's [chain] is bigger than mine, Plies' bigger than mine, cool guy in Atlanta—2 Chainz—his is bigger than mine. More props to them brothers. But what I would tell them is that Lambo is in this game, and I'm coming.
But now what I would tell them is that Lambo is in this game, and I’m coming. So that’s why I warned them. Everything a warning, you know what I mean? I warn them with the bracelet to let them know, I could come bigger, but let me grind a little more. Let me grind a little more. So that’s how that be rocking. So it’s all cool man. I’m just fly, man. I'm handsome. My mama, she gorgeous. My daddy, he handsome. And it’s time for the game to get some realness, you know. That's some real personality stuff and my music will speak for it. Sometimes it sounds so hard, but that’s my life.
Well, I see you shining right now. It looks like you got the star thing before the music thing. People see you but they don’t know who is Lambo. They see you courtside at the Heat games but who is the man behind all that shine? Let’s start with the name—who gave you the name Lambo?
Well if you Google me you would see my name [is] Arthur Lambright. If you go in the bank they’ll tell you, “Oh. That’s Arthur Lambright.” So I kind of cut the “bright” off and just put Lambo because I’m a fast type of person. I like my Lamborghinis to be fast.
Do you have a Lamborghini?
Nah, not yet. Not yet. I’m not to the point where I want to go spend money on a Lamborghini and don’t be comfortable with it. I want to be able to go buy me a Lamborghini and then the next day go buy a Ferrari to match. I ain’t digging in my shoe boxes, but I’m going to the bank, you know [Laughs].
I've seen you on the private jet wing on Instagram. It seems like you’re getting used to that lifestyle. That’s got to be a change right there. From Liberty City to the G4, or whatever it is.
Yeah, I’ma show you an old picture. I was 14 with a Rolex [Laughs].
Oh for real? So you've been flourishing for a minute now.
Yeah so the only thing new is the pilot getting to know me [Laughs]. You know I mean? I was 14 with a Rolex. [At that age] some of these guys were still goin' to their church and stuff. So you know, with the jets and stuff, the only thing that’s new to me was talking to the pilot. I don’t know how to fly. [Laughs]
So this is nothing new to you.
You got it. Yeah, you caught up. OK. But I will say the entertaining part, the business part—that type of part was new. Because, man, people know what my name was and knew. Just the business part, the entertainer part, and someone turning into what they say is a star. It’s like, I could go through the hood and they would be like, “What’s up!” That was before Lambo. I’d jump out a Chevy, a 74 Chevy, in the hood with a female, and they're like, “Oh, what’s up!” You know what I mean? So the only thing that’s new is these motherfuckers catchin' on to me. [Laughs] It’s cool like that, though. That’s the game. You know how that go.
So it’s not really like the jet life is new, but it was pretty cool though. It’s cool to be up there on a jet and shit. I kind of liked the picture. It’s kind of cool. So the jets they were cool. I love flying, man. I wanna own me one man. You interview me again, I’ll own one of them.
We’ll do the next one on your jet.
I saw on one of your Instagram videos where you were in the studio. By the way, what studio are you working out of?
Some times I go to The Circle House.
Oh yeah, Bebe and them.
Yeah Bebe a pretty cool cat, he always kept it real. All Miami down there. It’s crazy I used to always tell him, “Man, I’m gonna grind enough to work in this studio.” I mean, you could be in a trailer park and I’m coming. “How much I got to give you?! $25?! [Slaps hands] Let me record!” Man, you could be on a bus recording. I’ll go, “How much I got to pay?! $40? [Slaps hands] Let me record!” That type of grind was in me.
So I used to see him and start tellin' him, “Man, Bebe. I’m going to grind up and get there.” Not saying I wasn’t ever comfortable in my life to just go over there and just pay. But I would always say to myself, if I could get over there in the way [that] I could grind with the music, then they’d respect me more. He would know I’m coming really 10 toes down as a man. For one, I take my career serious. That’s how I look at it myself because I was pulling up in Lamborghinis and double R’s and Ferraris to some of the artists shows when they was having them. So I was always situated. But I had just had to get the grind part, or the business part to make the career come to life.
I saw on one of your videos you said, “Jay Z get that checkbook out.”
Oh nah, I hope you quote this so big in white letters in the magazine. My exact words is, “Jay Z, bring out that checkbook. I bet I bring back record sales and give them other rappers hell.” So that was the line. That’s exactly how it went. If you speed it up in rap it’ll be like [rapping] “Jay Z bring out that check book/I bet I bring back record sales, give them other rappers hell.” So it’ll kind of go like that. But quote that for him.
I caught up with him at Lebron’s wedding and stuff. It was pretty cool meeting him and stuff. Yeah, man, we got up at the wedding, man. Actually, man, it was my first time really wearing—I’ll say it, I don’t got no pride—wearing a tailor-made suit. It was kind of like a big deal floating around like, “Lambo got on a suit!”
So the suit was tailor-made for that day?
Yeah the lady who came and tailor-made me and stuff, she was a pretty cool woman. And right now she wants to tailor make all my suits. I guess they always see me in tennis shoes, Jordans or Lebrons—I rock them Lebrons, I rep Lebron man ‘til I d-i-e now, man. And I guess for them to see me in a suit, they know my background, and it was like a big thing: “Lambo got on a suit!” Everybody was running up to me like, “Lambo you look good in a suit.” So I really look at them motherfuckers like, “Damn, man. Well, you look good in a suit, too.”
Jay Z said, 'Hey Lambo, the suit look good on you, baby. That’s what gangstas do.'
So Randy, which is one of Lebron's main man—that’s my road dog. He was messing with me at first like, “Ah, Lambo you got on a suit. You look good in a suit,” and Jay Z said, “Hey Lambo, the suit look good on you, baby. That’s what gangstas do, baby.” You know I mean? That tune went through my ear, but it went through my ear in another tune, like, “Yeah you the new baddest motherfucker around. Go give it to em! You got Jay Z telling you the suit look good on you.” That’s a fucking kick ass, you know I mean? Seriously! Like, for an artist? I mean, too much don’t really get up on Jay Z, so for him to say, “Hey Lambo, the suit looks nice on you baby. That’s what gangsters do, baby. Dress up in suits baby.” That’s how he sounded. Yeah man, it was cool. They had a nice event. And congratulations again for Lebron and Savannah.
So speaking of family, how did you meet your fiancee?
Through this world. Two human beings. [Laughs]
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
Yeah, man. Wonderful ways, man. I ran into a beautiful fiance. Our relationship is so cool, man... We be like kids at Disney World. Like, "There go Mickey Mouse!" Beautiful woman, man. That’s what the world needs to know my woman as.
I ran into a beautiful fiance. Our relationship is so cool, man... We be like kids at Disney World. Like, 'There go Mickey Mouse!'
Where did you first meet her?
Just randomly out and about?
This is a city where things happen, man. You just walk down the street and boom!
This is the city where stuff happens [Laughs].
So is there any music out on the Internet anywhere that we can hear other than the snippets you’ve posted on your social media and stuff? Any tracks from back in the day?
I think there’s probably a good three videos of me just floating around.
Yeah I actually did one video. And I did that video really just to get my homeboys more in tune into this music. I ain’t do it for me, cause that ain’t my style of rap. I did it really to show my homeboys, if you got the motivation in you to be the one in front of this camera and you want to do videos like this... Look, you can do it. I dropped a song, it was called “Young niggas grindin' with an attitude.” It was kind of a hook and stuff. I did that because I got a label, too, man.
Oh, what’s that?
Lambino Ent. So kinda everything Lambino. That type of way. They will know the brand of it. So when we doin' them numbers they will know the brand of it. And they’ll know everything out of that brand come real. Because everything coming out of that brand will shine. You can’t even come over here if you ain’t no stunner. If you don’t like to floss. If you don’t like to talk to womens you can’t even come over here. But if you got a fiance or you married and you just come out and kick it with the homies, like myself and a couple of friends I got, that’s cool. But if you just can’t get in tune with yourself to do what you want to do, you can’t come over here. Cause my homeboys, man, they like women, they like jewelry, they like cars, and they do it pretty well. I’m talking about intelligent brothers, come from the gutter also. Some got GEDs, some don’t got GEDs, some went back and got GEDs. Some with legal firearms, some convicted felons that can’t get firearms, but I’ll tell you, everyone’s intelligent enough to know what they doing now. That’s the difference over here.
Bron play basketball, I get behind the mics and stuff. Different career man. But two legends in both of them, you know what I mean?
That’s what it’s called, Lambino Ent and we deal with a partner, the management group Game Over. My homie 4Mil, he’s the CEO over there. So we kind of like on a grind right now. It’s a bunch of individuals that really understand where they’re going. So you can remember that to the fullest. Lambino Ent, they will remember that. Management company, Game Over Music Group—a wonderful management group. Will put your music out there in the streets, will get you everywhere worldwide. We just got a bunch of individuals—because it’s not even being brothers, man. I got a Mexican over there, we got a Puerto Rican, one of my other homeboy’s Italian. My family, shout out to my Jewish family, because that’s everything behind me. Nawmean?
You can see it man, if you can spot the word Jewish—I mean, I love being who I am. So it's like, more power to whoever, whatever kind of religion, nationality everybody else is, I'm not a judgmental person, but this right now is about Lambo. So I'm telling you about Lambo. Yeah, man that’s what we’re doing. We’re here doing numbers, man. Like I said, that means money and I want you all to understand when I say "I do numbers" and I put the numbers in front of that because ain’t nobody over here money hungry. So I just wanted to say numbers so when they get to the point where they’re like, “What that mean?” That mean money. I mean we in the game to get money, that’s definite. Because everybody got families over here. Everybody got kids over here. And we sure enough here for support about that. All my guys fly, but we fathers first. Family over all.
Is ‘Bron involved in the label at all or is this yours exclusively?
Yeah it’s mine on my own. Bron play basketball, I get behind the mics and stuff. Different career man. But two legends in both of them, you know what I mean?
So what does the future hold? A year from now, where do you want to be?
Um. This question worth a million dollars. I ain’t confused, I just want y’all to wait on it. You see how much you wanted to hear that? That’s how I want every interview to be. Just waiting on me, pins and needles, toes standing up a little bit for this answer right here. I want it like that. I want the best of [the] best to come at me. I like how you came at me, I respect that. But I want to stand on the couch like what his name? The actor guy.
Tom Cruise like he did on Oprah’s couch. I want to be sitting right here and she tell me “Do it for the vine!” I want Oprah to say “Lambo, do it for the vine!” So you know, a lot of interviewers they come at me. They come hard. When they learn, “Hey that’s an intelligent young brother,” they come harder. So a year from now I’ll be on Oprah’s couch.
I don't doubt that. Have you experienced any player hating or negativity as you've been flourishing?
Nah I was born in it.
So how do you deal with that?
[Laughs; swings his gold chain.]
You got no words at all? Speaking of your jewelry, I wanted to ask you about that, you mentioned the Jewish faith, and you're wearing a Jewish symbol. What’s that mean?
That’s the number 18. It means peace, happiness, nothing but good things. When you interview me again, read that. That’s what I do about the haters. That’s all. Yeah. If they hate too hard I be like this [Jewels clinking].
Just let em check the chunkiness. It’s more than a pleasure, it’s a privilege to have a chance to get know the man behind the flash. Because this is the first time I’m getting to know you and you seem like a real dude, so.
Thank you, man. I appreciate you too man. It’s always an honor to meet people who believe in theyself, in what they do and their grind. That’s important too because you could walk in the room and just see the ambitious in the person that believe in what they do. To me, I pay attention to that because i don’t need that type of motivation or ambition to make me go, but i pay attention to it because that’s the ones I stand for real on. It’s pretty cool, man.
It was a nice interview, man. I'm pretty sure the people think so. I ain’t got to hope, they’ll watch it [and] see Lambo is hilarious. Because you have a camera bigger than Jupiter, I’m going to get in front of it and I’m going to kill that motherfucker.
