We had the good fortune of connecting with Lloyd Leonard Jr and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lloyd, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My grandfather and father owned their own companies.

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 began drawing at the young tender age 6 years old at the kitchen table of my parents home in Detroit,Michigan. My mother recognized my talent for drawing and my parents continued to nurture my God given ability. The lessons I’ve learned throughout this process is to continue to give God the credit through it all! God continues to provide and open new doors for my brand. The world needs to know that Hip Hop has a FLIP FLOPP!! We are here to stay!!!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My parents (Edna/Lloyd Sr. & my sister (Monica).
