”Music is something that is invigorating and just feels great. It’s created as an expression of different moments in our lives.” Lil1finesse stands out from other artist because she’s raw,she bruised, she makes it ok to be imperfect, to be human. “The driving force behind my music is my story. It has to be told. No it’s not okay to make bad decisions. Yes there are good and bad police out there.Yes, there are some young women forced to become a product of their environment however, what set each of us apart and what pushes us forward is determined by the choices we make.”
