The experience of interviewing Dallas rapper Loudiene can be described with one word: bizarre. His misfit attitude and whimsical personality made this interview one to remember and I was able to capture its entirety in our hilarious albeit off-the-wall exchange.
His viral hit “Jugg” is making major airwaves throughout the metroplex. After only being on the net for 8 days, “Jugg” caught the attention of Brick Squad’s Waka Flocka adding Loudiene to BSM’s troupe. The self-proclaimed King of Jugg is quite the character. His personality, stage presence, music, and notably his fashion are what makes Loudiene, well Loudiene.
If you have ever had the chance of witnessing Loudiene perform then you understand that he doesn’t just give you a regular performance. From stage diving to climbing on top of sets it’s truly an array of chaos that instantly captivates an audience in awe.
He’s an eccentric rapper who has been named the Gucci Mane of Texas by his peers but in his opinion he is more comparable to Ol’ Dirty Bastard. However, if you asked him what he thinks about the public’s perception of him his answer would be that he doesn’t give fuck.
