Earl Langham-Jr ( Boygenius) is a Rapper from Mississippi in the Southeastern region of the United States. He was born November 22 1973, in Moss Point, Mississippi, and later in his early teen years moved to Austin Texas. Earl Langham Jr became inspired of the Texas Entertainment scene where he started learning about the business from his cousin Spencer Aldridge in Houston Texas. His cousin was an extra location casting director who worked on films like Dream Girls, The Postmen, Salena under Gregory Nava, The Great Debaters, Lend Belly under the director of Gordon Parks and Benjamin Button just to name a few. Spencer taught Earl Langham Jr. about the Music business and brought Earl along with him on shows and behind the scenes. He instructed Earl to watch what's going on around him and study the business. Earl helped his cousin Spencer on projects in his collaborations with lil Flip out of Houston Texas. This gave Earl the opportunity to meet a lot of the Big Major Independent artist out of Houston Texas, such as Z ro, Trae da Truth, Lil KEKE, Hawk, (R.I.P.) and Moe (R.I.P.), Street Military, D. and many others. What Earl learnt from these big names is that, if you work hard at your craft, you will earn the respect of the streets which will become your fans. These where amongst some of the lessons that forged Earl's musical journey. When he became an artist, he took on the name Boygenius. Earl and Lvdaboss are currently working and they keep performing together. They isn't new to the stage and are currently working on a new Album.

Interview With Boygenius


Have you always been interested in music? What is your story and how did you start making music?

I have always been around the music business through my cousin Spencer Aldridge who was an extra casting director and manager of a Talent Agency Inc in Houston Texas. Learn more on my story at

Boygenius and my cousin Lvdaboss have been working on music for a while now and we just added Young RnB abd.  He has been working with us on lots of different projects

What are you working on now? Any future releases we can look forward to?

Yes, working on another Album but that will be disclose later on. We already got some fresh albums out now. To name a few, Back To Grinding, My cousin Loners Plate, and my Album Fearless “ The fall of the Matrix”. It’s been alot of work and we have been very busy.

What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry?

Just to establish our selves and bless the world with our type of music that keep the spirit lifted.

What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?

Booking. We are seeking to book bigger gigs and hopefully our manager can get us in front of a bigger audience, or on bigger stages even though it’s very challenging.

How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in your head and then write the other music for it or what’s Your typical songwriting process?

Getting the music first and then the hook. The hook determines how I build tahe rest of the song into a story. You will notice this if you listened carefully to our music. We have got the best music out now. Not the low frequency mess.

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

The internet just gives the upcoming artists a platform to compete with mainstream ones but there is a need for a lot of improvement for indie artists. You have those that walk in the dark and those that walk in the light.

List some famous musicians currently on your playlist?

I’m not sure. I got someone else managing that.

What Did You Do Before You Started Making Music?

I have always done and still do photography plus i  run my clothing brand Swagg Fresh Appearls.

Would you have any advice for young people wanting to follow in your footsteps?

Yes I would say, to all the young artist that want to pursue music as a artist. Just know it’s not easy and it’s not just recording in a booth and uploading on internet. Marketing will be the biggest part of their careers. They will have to put a lot of money behind marketing. Another thing is do not get caught up in all the illusion you see on TV. Them business what get artist career to come to a halt. Just keep grinding and find artist that is on your level. Many young kats want to be apart of this business but don’t put no money behind their craft. I believe everything happens for a reason, and if you run into a road block you either figure out how to get around it or see a sign that it might not be the time for what you trying to do. Keep grinding and never give up.

If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?

The way majors treat and run their business. They need to cater more to the indie artists. It’s where everyone starts.

How do you feel about originality?

I am 100 percent into being original. If your are good at what you do, then you got to be original. If an artist doesn’t get into entertainment business with an original song of his then he’s only a copycat. Labels are not looking for copycats. I even heard an artist say “well I make music this way because it’s the type of music that is being played out there”. For me this is wrong cause the industry doesn’t get to know who you really are? What is your original sound and this is because you have not introduced yourself correctly. Your guest single or album must be your introduction into the Music world. At some point and time you must introduce your own style.

Is there anything else we should know about you? or Something that you would like to add?

Lol. I’m a Raw and fearless artist, so as my crew.
