Lawrence Arnell is a recording artist, vocalist, writer, producer, videographer, photographer, comedian, and actor born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. Currently on the roster at Cinema 7 Multimedia Group, specializing in Hip Hop and Soul music, he is a jack of all trades to say the least.
Inspired by local emcees and producers, 100X, L.E. Squared, and The Roots, Lawrence started rhyming in ciphers and battles in school and around the neighborhood. Attending school outside of his own neighborhood, he networked with artists from all over the city and developed a reputation. He is affiliated with Q. Dimension, Army Of The Pharaohs, and his current label Cinema 7.
Lawrence was signed to Tommy Boy Records when he was 19 years old and had 3 Billboard Chart top 100 appearances in 2014 and 2015. He has performed with CBGB’s, Notorious B.I.G., Vinnie Paz, and KRS One. He has 3 projects out – his first solo album, “Beast or Breathren”; collaboration with Army Of The Pharaohs member V Zilla, “The Monster & Mr Arnell”; and a solo EP released in 2020, “If It’s The Last Thing I Do”.
Lawrence continues to work in all of his respective creative avenues, supporting his family, and leaving his mark on the genre that raised him.
