L.A. is having one of the best weeks ever. Late Sunday she released the killer track “Spitting Out Blood”, which has been making its waves on the internet including a debut. Then today she locked up one of the two spots on the upcoming Show & Prove showcase presented by The Brooklyn Bodega and to compete for a spot on this year’s Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival in July. And to think, she’s only been rapping for 11 months, having just released her first project in January, with a follow up due out July. The girl is dope, and her music embodies such a raw uncut energy.

Anyway, this week she decided to take the challenge. Check out how L.A. answered five random questions after the jump.

Hometown: Brooklyn son!
Current City: Brooklyn son!
How long have you been doing music: 11 months rapping...
Discography: The Presentation (Jan 2011), The L.A. Riots (coming July 2011)
Label: fxckurcosign records (laughs)
Describe your music in five words or less: Images (of) soulful reality (and) messages (in) bars

ThroatChop: Okay, first question. Your celebrity crush at age 10, 15 and now?

L.A.: Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Lorenz Tate. I don't have crushes anymore cause I have a boyfriend and lack of time. But if I did have a crush, it would be on my future.

ThroatChop: What TV character would you be and why?

L.A.: I don't watch a lot of TV but in real life the only person I cared to be was Oprah (cliché I know shut up - laughs). Before rapping I wanted my own talk show (still do sometimes) and I always use to think if I was Oprah that show would have been way too live.

ThroatChop: What's the most embarrassing cd you ever purchased?

L.A.: Sisqo, Unleash the Dragon

ThroatChop: Which three songs would be on the soundtrack of your life and why?

L.A.: Hey there Deliah by Plain White T's... no real reason but It makes me think of my best friends and our growth and separation as we build our careers. I know they love me and I love them but we all just trying make something out of nothing.

Flashing Lights by Kanye West- I played that song 15282 times on my iPod. It's not really about the bars but about the message it conveyed about Hip-Hop in general for me. I didn't really see the character he was talking about as a model chick or star but more like what is happening to Hip-Hop, along with myself as an artist, as whole. Now go listen to it and think about that.

Juicy - Biggie- I know cheesy but in honesty that song really symbolizes my own come up and that the possibilities are endless if you just believe.

ThroatChop: Last question, L.A. what is your single greatest fear

L.A.: To fall/fail
