Where are you from?
We all hail from Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY, one of the biggest melting pots on the east coast.
Whats it like growing up where your from?
You could say Flatbush is the heart of Brooklyn and, being so, it has its ups and downs. It can provide you the greatest experiences as well as the ones you’d want to forget. Being apart of a largely diverse community allowed us (22Love) to obtain knowledge from many different lifestyles and cultures. Our neighborhood can provide you with the tools but it’s on you how you use it and using our pasts as well as our observations growing up to help us shy away from the negativity that normally engulfs the place we call home.
How did you get into music?
Well, speaking for our music artists, each member has a story about how they developed their own individual passion for music. Music was what brought us all together it’s a interest all the members of 22Love share and from there, the music took off.
What is it that you do?
22Love is way more than it may seem at first glance. We are a collective of creative individuals who use our outlets to promote balance, equality, and self-love as well as how important loving & support is to the world. With music, clothing, and events we continue to try and spread our message to the world.
What are your goals?
We have many, but our main goal is to bring the real back into Hip Hop. Bring back more videos with storyline and concept. Bring back the raw emotion and genuine expression. Make the music more than just music again, make it art & a show of creativity.
What are you currently working on?
After dropping our debut tape, Sorry It’s This W4Y, We want to remain consistent we’re lining up more videos and music for the people.
