We were fortunate enough to talk ish with Rap Artist & Actor…Kevin Lavell!!! Kevin Lavell has taken the world by storm with his hit single, Love No Thots (The Official Yeet Song). We actually witness Kevin Lavell perform at two #AntiChiraq events and was definitely impressed with his performance and we must admit, Kevin Lavell definitely has some bars. Kevin Lavell is also apart of The Generation TV Show. Lets get to know Kevin Lavell…
3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the world. Let the people know who Kevin Lavell is and what Kevin Lavell does.
Kevin Lavell: I’m a 17-year-old lyricist From Chicago with a point to prove. I’m trying to show [the people] what real rap look and sounds like, because I can do what everybody else do but everybody can’t do what I do, and yes as absurd as it seems, it still is real rappers/artists out here.
3 Voices: What inspired you to become a rap artist? Who are some artists that influenced your career?
Kevin Lavell: It’s something that was always in me for as long as I could remember and I’ve always been good at it and it was something I never slacked off on. I worked hard on making music no matter how I felt. A lot of artists influenced my career but it would be a long list if I named them all, so I’ll just read off 6…Tupac, Jay z, Nas, DMX, J.Cole, and Kendrick Lamar.
3 Voices: Tell us about your single, “I Don’t Want No THOT (Official Yeet Song)”. What made you come up with the song? Were you shocked at the outcome of the song?
Kevin Lavell: I was coming home from getting my friend, Top Coat from work and he kept screaming “Top coat, Top coat YEET” in the car and that was stuck in my head. So I was making a song to a TLC sample and I decided to listen to TLC for sum inspiration and I went to No Scrub by TLC and why the song was playing my friend got a text and I looked over and he told me to get out his phone and then I said “Boy I don’t want yo thot, yo thot is the type that can’t get no love from [me], hanging with the other lil h*es in her best friend clothes tryna squash my team.” It was slurred because I was free styling it but everybody understood it, so I changed a couple words and decided to make it a an instagram video. I told my guys to say ‘Yeet’ in the back ground while I rapped it. Yes, I was shocked by the outcome of the song, I thought it was a funny instagram video.
3 Voices: So many people are “yeeting” everywhere on Vine, Instagram, Twitter and practically anywhere they can. What’s yeet? Will there be an official video for “Love No Thot (Official Yeet Song)”?
Kevin Lavell: Yeet was actually something I saw when I lived in Atlanta. I don’t know if that’s where it started or not but that’s where I saw it first. Once I came back to Chicago I told my friends about it, but the way I explain Yeet is basically if you’re curving somebody for example, a ugly guy trying to talk to a pretty girl, he’s all in her face so YEET that boy 1 time. Another example, I got a pack of gum and my homie ask for some, I’ll pull the gum out and [hand] it towards him and as soon as he reach for it…YEET that boy! Yeet video? Stay tuned for that.
3 Voices: You acted on TV shows such as The Generation. How long you been acting? Who are some actors that influenced your acting career?
Kevin Lavell: I’ve been acting seriously for 3 years and that’s all on The Generation and I acted in about two/three school plays before then but those were nothing serious.
Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, and Martin Lawrence.
3 Voices: Can we expect Kevin Lavell on anymore TV shows or movies? What would be your ideal role in any movie or show?
Kevin Lavell: Stay tuned for that; my ideal role would be actually getting to play my father in a movie/show.
