Hustling the streets by day, but writing poetry at night, Lazarus listened to the rap music that filled the airwaves – namely Houston’s hardcore rapper Crime Boss. “He has been the biggest influence on my music,” said Lazarus. “He’s the real deal. He’s a rapper and a lyricist, and he rapped about the life I was living at the time.” Giving more props, Lazarus adds, “Anybody who’s true to the game knows that Crime Boss was a rapper who influenced the art form.” Other musical influences include rappers N.W. A., 8-Ball, and MJG.

At 15, he recorded his first single, “Another Day on the Hustle,” with a neighborhood rap group.

Lazarus shopped his demo tapes to record companies in Los Angeles. Witnessing the success of rappers on the New Orleans-based record label, Cash Money Records – i.e. Hot Boy – caused Lazarus to grow impatient so he started his own independent label, Lazarus Entertainment. He released his first album, “Here I Come” in 2000, and moved more than 10,000 units, hitting the road in his hometown of Lake Charles, LA and neighboring cities.
The first single released off the album entitled “Heart of a Hustler” is “Enemy & I which was featured in the film “Alpha Dogs” starring Justin Timberlake and its soundtrack.
Lazarus made his foray into acting nabbing his first lead role in a film entitled “Joshua” Heart of a Warrior.

His second release, “Heart of a Hustler,” is set to hit radio and retail. Describing his music as that influenced by the West Coast, but flavored with his deep southern roots, Lazarus’ sound tells the story of his struggle, his pain, his reconciliation and ultimately, his breakthrough.
Available on Itunes, Rhapsody and MSN
