DAWNdada: Hi LyriKILL, thanks for taking the time out of your busy life to sit with me and do this interview. I have to admit I am a fan. Your music is fun.
Lyrikill: No Problem. Thank You.
DAWNdada: I normally do not start an interview with such corny questions, BUT I really want to know what is your real name?
Lyrikill: Fritz Jean Pierre
DAWNdada: SURE! Ok Mr. Fritz Jean Pierre, what is your nationality?
Lyrikill: Both my parents are Haitian. My original rap name was Haitian blanc. In 2005, I found out they were lying to me. It tore me apart. My dad is Jewish my mom is Scandinavian which makes me white.

DAWNdada: LOL. Besides Haiti, where were you born?
Lyrikill: behind Wendy’s at Hollywood memorial on the fif flo
DAWNdada: Fo Sho!!! Where were you raised?
Lyrikill: Miami, Hollywood, Dania, & Lauderdale
DAWNdada: So basically South Florida!! Where do you currently reside?
DAWNdada: How did you come up with your rap name (Lyrikill)??
Lyrikill: I use to rap real fast in high school at Stranahan and they said I sounded like a machine gun and I also wanted something that sounded similar to Lauderdale so it became Lyrikill. But now as a result of my neon sign it has evolved to lyrikill.com.
DAWNdada: The infamous neon sign, the first time I ever saw you, I was covering a show for P Dot & The BPC at Laguna Beach Night Club, I saw you & you were wearing a Neon Necklace that said LYRIKILL.COM over in VIP with Eddie Mixx (power96) & I thought “who is that”? LOL Then I went to Lyrikill.com & heard your hooptee song. I loved it. You are so funny. SO, Do you really drive a hooptee???
Lyrikill: When I am trying to lay low, or hide from the paparazzi
DAWNdada: If you’re trying to lay low you’re doing a horrible job, LOL. I have seen you everywhere!!! I have seen your flyers on billboards, street signs, even @ McDonalds, I have seen you with your Neon Necklace, and Picket Signs at every VIP, or concert event, I have even been shopping at Brandsmart and seen your video for hooptee on the big screen, but the all time best was when I was watching the Channel 7 news catching up on my daily Anna Nicole Smith coverage when I see you and your signs on the news in the background.LOL. I don’t think you run from the paparazzi you run to it. LOL. Where do you get these crazy ideas from??
Lyrikill: There all divinely inspired. Whatever I do I try to do it big, once I do it big, I figure out how I can do it Bigger. I’ve hit news stories from Anna Nicole and OJ Simpson to American Idol. Recently, I jumped in the Tropical Storm Fay broadcast. If they think they can come to Lauderdale without me shinin they’re crazy. Check them out @ Lyrikill.com
DAWNdada: How long have you been grinding?
Lyrikill: Well… I’ve been grindin since I was little but my dentist told me to stop cuz its f*ckin up my molars.
DAWNdada: LOL, I always get the jokesters. Let me try this again… How long have you been in the music industry?
Lyrikill: LOL. I started rapping in HS. I got into production cuz I could never find any beats that fit my style. I ended up teaching myself how to make beats & produce music. My 1st commercially released song was “You done messed up” in 2006. But I been writing and doing music for years.
DAWNdada: Wow, that’s truly impressive. You do it all. It’s a tough industry. Do you ever just get tired and want to give up?
Lyrikill: I don’t know what else to do but hustle. I used to sell cds in Ziplocs with my music for a dollar outside club 84 in Lauderdale and all over Florida. Sometimes quitting pops up for a milli a miili second and then I kill the thought. Plus I have fans texting me all day showing love so I can’t 754.234.7514. I’ve been receiving requests to produce for other artists for years but I am now starting to venture into that field of the music industry. So anyone listening can halla at me if you need anything.
DAWNdada: Good answer. As a white dude do you feel it’s harder to make it in this industry?
Lyrikill: Nothin is hard for me.
DAWNdada: True. Do you feel Eminem set the bar to high for white rappers?
Lyrikill: I am not a high jumper. (Laughing). I am an artist. Jay Z did Jay Z. EM did EM. LYRIKILL will do Lyrikill. I appreciate everyone who paved the way for hip hop without them I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing.
DAWNdada: Another for my interest only question: What made you want to get dreads?
Lyrikill: rap music. It’s infecting all the youth its all raps fault! Blame everything on rap. LOL

DAWNdada: Wow I’m impressed. Did you always want to be a Dope Rapper?
Lyrikill: I think everyone wants to be the best at whatever they do. And not even necessarily the best but the best you can be. I do what I feel and hope people appreciate that. I always want to get better. I can rap but can I song write like Neyo. I make beats but can I produce like Stargate? Some people don’t even know who they are. Google it. I do research. I have a lot to learn. Some say I’m cocky and try to do everything myself but that’s just because I had to earlier. Those who know me know I am humble. I tried sitting back and waiting nothing happened. If you wanna work lets get it. 754.234.7514
