Lisa: Do you get creative blocks? If so, what do you do to move past them?
L.A. The Player: Yea I get blocks. I take a break. Clear my mind. Usually inspiration finds me then I run with it.
Lisa: You’re latest single “Play the Game” is really good. What inspired you to write it?
L.A. The Player: Honestly, it was a song that I was sending out for a feature. I never heard back yay or nay. So I decided to finish it myself and show how the game is played and “Play The Game” Was Born.
