Aggressive, in your face with his witty, clever, and sharp word play L.A. Barnes began rapping at the age of 14. The abbreviation L.A. stands for Lyrical Assassin, which is a reflection of how L.A. Barnes spits, presents his rhyme style. L.A.’s music background started with playing drums, which is an inspiration for his outstanding and phenomenal flow. Some of his musical influences in Hip-Hop come from artists such as, The Hot Boys, Field Mob, Outkast, and Pastor Troy to name a few. One of the most unique qualities L.A. has is a unique captivating vocal sound that will pull you in and make you listen. 

L.A. pushed his first mixtape "King of the O" and captured an audience in 2008 with his own sound. The streets began talking and it seemed as if he was about to climb the ladder in the game. Due to life’s trials and tribulations L.A.’s career was put on pause until the beginning of 2012 when he came back on the local artist rap scene. Entering a local open-mic contest ‘My City Mondays: King of the Stage 2’ L.A. shocked the whole venue with his remarkable and flawless stage presence. L.A. won that competition and went on to win every contest he entered. Now that L.A. is back in the music battlefield he dropped "The Appetizer EP" which is the pre-qual to his upcoming album "The Beast Feast". The response to L.A.’s EP was a great success leaving the fans wanting more! Orlando and the local fans are now talking about L.A. becoming an up and coming star! L.A. is working on more material, production and opportunities to see where he will take his musical venture next.
