IAA: What is your music background?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: Lyrical Trilogy is comprised of three dedicated musicians that have worked the Phoenix Hip Hop scene for the past ten years. Diplean and Jay were separately working the underground hip hop scene while Saydee sharpened her craft in R&B.

IAA: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: Lyrical Trilogy’s main focus is to rekindle the nostalgia we all felt as a kid when we first heard Hip Hop music. We think our versatility and ability to recreate the sounds of 70’s R&B and 90’s Hip Hop sets us apart in the underground scene. As a group we have always been passionate about music and our goal is to share that with the rest of the world.
IAA: What are your songs about?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: Most of our songs consist of issues that the everyday man goes through, ranging from losing a job, relationships to trying to make a difference in someone’s life. L3 tries to stay away from the traditional topics by writing songs with more depth and feelings, our love for hip hop and the epic feel of “Throw Them Threes!”
IAA: Who is your fan base directed towards?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: Being that L3 is a multi ethnical group, we have been known to attract a very diverse crowd ranging from all age groups. The fusion of Hip Hop and R&B appeals to a larger percentage of music listeners. By following the blueprint of the Fugees we have always had a very solid fan base.
IAA: Who your musical influences?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: L3 is an R&B and Hip Hop group. Our Influences are Lyrical MC’s like Rakim and Ice Cube, 2Pac, Outkast, Scarface and in R&B the late Selena and TLC.
IAA: How would you describe your music to people?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: L3’s music is a combination of emotional hooks and intricate lyrics to create powerful Hip Hop ballads.
IAA: What makes you stand out from other artists?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: Being multi cultural and having a group that has two MC’s and a R&B artist sets us apart from the rest of the Hip Hop scene. Our song topics and lyrical content contain meanings and thoughtfulness in the words give a nod to the music of old
IAA: What are some upcoming projects you are working on?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: First and foremost, the L3 album will be out soon. We also are working on a mix tape and a video for our next single, “Bring Me Down,” but we are always doing shows in Arizona.
IAA: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in ten years?
LYRICAL TRILOGY: L3’s goals are to get the entire world to see and hear our music, and to give ourselves a chance to be successful in the music industry. We see ourselves in ten years as a well established entity and hopefully among one of the greatest Hip Hop groups of all time.
