We had the good fortune of connecting with Regi Levi and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Regi, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
The end goal for me is to be able to provide for myself and my family in the future. I just want to be mentally, physically, and financially stable. To be able to live and do what I love doing as my career would be a dream come true.
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 love music. Everything about it; from producing a beat, to writing lyrics, and even recording. I am most proud whenever I am done with a song and I truly like the outcome. I also get that same feeling after a performance. The feeling of being on stage is like no other feeling at all. It’s a roller coaster of emotions! I got to where I’m at today because of my surroundings. My family and friends are always pushing me to do better and be better. I’ve overcame many challenges by just going through it and failing. Life is all about the journey and the experiences you encounter. Every and any challenge I get, I’ll go face it over and over until I feel accomplished. I want the world to know that I’m just a young, immigrant boy who loves art.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Some of my favorite spots ever is being at the mosque, the record store, the studio, Best Buy, basketball courts and Gamestop. I’m a very open guy and I’m always down to do things I feel is safe. I’m also not picky when it comes to food so I’m always up to eat anywhere. First spot I’ll for sure bring a date or a friend to is a Thai restaurant called “Sanamluang” in Claremont. They have some good ass fried rice! Wherever there is fried rice or noodles, I’m sold.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a huge shoutout to my family first and foremost for always supporting and believing in what I do. I would also want to shoutout my group of friends who are constantly on my ass and keeping me on my grind. Without both, I’d be lost.
