Team Moet : How do you think your 2019 went rap wise as far as success and getting more exposure?
Lord Juco : 2019 went well, still a lot of room for improvement but I feel like my name holds more weight now.
Team Moet: You and some of your peers such as Daniel Son & Falcon Outlaw have been holding it down for Canada. Do you see y’all as the forefront of the future of indie music and how are people in the town treating y’all for the work being put in?
Lord Juco: Most definitely, Big S/O to Daniel Son, Falcon, Asun, Che, Dnte, Soze, Finn, Futurewave, Smokeshop, J banks and everyone else I’m missing. Toronto got a super dope underground right now man and its only a matter of time before its in the forefront. There’s love in the city but its not what it should be, it’ll need that cosign or overseas love before the city really embrace us all.
Team Moet: Last year you had a very scary life changing accident the outpouring on Twitter was dope. How did that make you feel knowing so many people you never met cared so much about your well being?
Lord Juco: The fact that so many people reached out was extremely humbling. My own people found out from twitter which is crazy. That shit brought me to tears more than once. I think it speaks volumes on the mutual respect I have for my peers and they for me.
Team Moet: Break down the name Lord Juco how did you come up with it does it have a meaning?
Lord Juco: Lord Juco is an acronym.
Life’s Opportunities Reflect Determination
Judgmental Understanding Creates Obstacles
its just a reminder to myself why i make music and to be mindful of my own content.
Team Moet: Not many indie rappers have been blessed to work with some of the legends like you have. How do you feel looking back now at “Narcos” seeing you had Benny & Roc rapping with you?
Lord Juco: It feels like a chess move, still one of my favorite joints to date.
Team Moet: How did you & Cousin Feo link up & How did the “Death At The Derby” Series come about?
Lord Juco: I reached out to Feo after hearing Creme Fraiche, we have a mutual love for the game so it was only right to start with the rivalry of the teams we follow. Liverpool & Manchester, so we did the northwestern derby over a retrospec beat and little did we know we sparked the derby series.
Team Moet: What do you think is your best project to date & why?
Lord Juco: PEEP is my personal favorite. Just because it was my first EP and i was in a different mind state. I love everything about it.
Team Moet: Who are your top 3 up & coming producers you would like to work with that you haven’t as of yet?
Lord Juco: I’ve worked with everyone I like so I cant even give you a top 3 at the moment. However producers everyone should be looking out for: The Standouts, Bohemia Lynch & Four Limbs off the top of my head.
Team Moet: What can we expect from you in 2020?
Lord Juco: MORE. More EPs, More singles, More Visuals, More Vinyl, More CDs, More Shows if we don’t all die from this virus.
Team Moet: Will we be getting another “Big Turks” album in the near future?
Lord Juco: Big Turks is not getting a re-up. All Love amongst us but its not happening again.
Team Moet: I feel you & Fortes make good music the “Lord Classy” is one of my favorites. Y’all recently linked up again on your new song “Ashtrays” can we expect a “Lord Classy 2” sometime down the road?
Lord Juco: Lord Classy has been talked about but I got too much in the pipeline to really entertain it at the moment. Its all Love with Fortes and he knows that but I got other stuff on the way.
