The Baller Alert Show: Ep. 288 – Lola Brooke Talks New Album, Grieving Her Father and More

Baller Alert, Baller Alert, Baller Alert. Welcome back to another episode of the Baller Alert Show. On this episode, the cast is joined by Lola Brooke to discuss new album,  grieving her father, sacrifices, celebrity crush and more.

“The new album is out. How has the first run been so far?” asked OCT.

“I’m Getting the hang of it,” said Lola Brooke. “I actually enjoy it because now I have a body of work out. It’s my actual story.”

“What was it like growing up as Dennis’s daughter?” asked OCT.

“Growing up, I was the only child. My mom was a single parent. I tapped in with my father here and there. He was a hustler turned into an addict,” said Lola Brooke.

“I heard a lot of that in the Dear Dennis song,” said OCT.

“That was really a song for him,” said Lola Brooke. “That’s literally how I bond with him even though he’s deceased.”

“I just want to show the world that there are other ways of grieving. You can still feel their presence. That’s how you can try to get some type of closure,” said Lola Brooke.

“So when did rap start coming?” asked Ferrari.

“Rapping came about because I used to always write in my journals and diaries. That’s how I got off with my emotions,” said Lola Brooke.

“Shout out to your engineer because you sound big on the record. You sound like the boogey man,” said OCT.

“I did think you were like 5’11 or 6’10,” said Ferrari.

“We saw you in L.A. for the BET Awards, and you were really good. Especially for a new artist,” said OCT.

“I went through artist development. It’s so crazy because I know that’s not a thing now. I got music videos that I never put out, and I got songs that I never put out. When I finally knew my sound, it was go time,” said Lola Brooke.

“What made you get that tone?” asked Ferrari.

“That’s my mad voice,” said Lola Brooke.

“You got that 90s nostalgic sound. It feels like you bringing me back to that old school New York sound,” said OCT.

“What’s your favorite record off the album?” asked Ferrari.
“Dear Dennis and Vacant Heart,” said Lola Brooke.

“Speaking of nicknames, where did Lola come from?” asked OCT.

“Lola Bunny, they used to say I looked like Lola Bunny in high school,” said Lola Brooke.

“How did the record ‘Don’t Play With It’ come about?” asked BT.

“Me and Dizzy, who produced that record, used to always be on the phone just feeding off of each other. I heard the beat, and I took it to the studio and started doing my thing. I needed a different type of view on it, so I sent it to a Brooklyn artist, and the rest was history,” said Lola Brooke.

“Can you describe your hustle on the way to that record?” asked OCT.

“It took a lot of sacrificing time with family and discipline,” said Lola Brooke.

“Is there someone special making Lola happy?” asked Ferrari.

“Mind y’all business,” said Lola Brooke. “Right now, what’s on the front line is my career.”
