Thad Lu is proof that you don’t need to ditch intelligence or consciousness in order to be entertaining. His music makes people woke – in both senses of the word. He had his head set on spoken word, when he became interested in music due to another artist that started with spoken word and transitioned into rap – the legendary Kanye West. He saw the path, and he saw that Kanye became what he became by making the type of music that no one else was making. Thus, he went on the same path by not taking the same path as Kanye, and making music that only Thad Lu can make.
