We had the good fortune of connecting with Hugh Lee and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Hugh, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I’d say honesty. People can see through BS. And the universe can see through it too. When you do things with genuine intent and be true to yourself, you can accomplish unimaginable things. Couple that with being pure, you start to attack all the things that are also pure and genuine. So i try to be as honest as possible in my actions, my work, and my thought process . That’s been a key for me getting where j am as well as where i want to go. Hence the Libras Never Lie company

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 got to where i am with a ton of sacrifice and determination. I think the only difference between me and others is how bad i want it. Every one has a story and every one has their motivations, mine just pushed me a little harder than most and i never wavered through all the obstacles and opposition. I kept going. I keep my brand focused towards mental health because that’s what i dedicated my life to. I talk about my own issues as well as others and try to give a bit on inspiration to those who need it

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.
We in the hood the whole time . Gotta show them the spots that people don’t know about. The loop is cool and touristy but there’s some stuff out west and out south you gotta be from here to know about. I won’t give too much sauce but obviously we gone eat good! couple kick backs and some clubs on the low

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d have to shout out Donald Glover. He set the example and precedent for everything i expect from myself. Obviously my newest project that just went number one was named in his respect so i can’t help but give him credit and recognition. He played a huge role in my growth in this industry. I just paid attention and applied it
