Behind the Song
LETHVL OPTIKS a rapper straight from the heart of Colorado springs has broken in the music scene with his debut song Big Steppa. Born Keoni Coleman, he loved listening to music as a kid especially rap music. He would often wander around the house rapping to himself for fun or freestyle with his brothers and friends as a hobby.
It wasn't until his junior year in high school that he fell in love with rap and took doing music seriously. In March 2021, he started posting music consistently releasing his two hit singles "Scars" and "Status." 2020 was only a snippet of what he can do, what the next few years will hold for him, we can only wait and see.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
Its relaxing and just an overall good vibe. Shoutout my engineer Evo. We got to talking bout like what kinda style im going for in each of my songs and he was able to like get my vocals right and make my music like radio ready even.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
Nobody really asks me that lol! Honestly I go to the gym a lot. I usually start my day off working out before I work on my music because I get so caught up in it that I forget about working out.
Sometimes I hang out with my homies, but thats rare only because Im making music and since it is a career, I gotta devote myself to what im doing and I gotta take the necessary steps to get to where I wanna be.
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
Id say I admire Lil Baby the most. He inspires me to keep grinding and hustling. He reminds me that the struggle im goin through right now aint in vain. That its gonna pay off in the future.
