Lu Cruise is a rapper, singer, songwriter, actress. The name derived from my first name Lukeeshaa and Cruise describes my smooth flow. She is 25 years old. She started off singing in the Greater Refuge Memorial Church choir as a little girl and began freestyle rapping in high school among friends. Cruise recorded her first song in 2010. Her interests include traveling, spending time with family and friends, mentoring the young people at church, helping others, photography, videography, graphic design, and website development. She has always wanted to be a star. In 2010, when she recorded her first song Tea Time and first mixtape Cruise Control, that’s when she knew she wanted to pursue music. Lu did a showcase, and the way she felt on stage and the way she was able to express herself through her lyrics, at that point she knew she was an artist and that she could go somewhere with my music. Lu Cruise’s greatest accomplishment in life was being awarded the Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ International Jr. Missionary of the Year Award. She’s had a lot of ups and downs with her music career, but her greatest accomplishments are the comments and messages from people who support my music. Whether it’s a tweet with a quote of her lyrics or a comment encouraging her to keep grinding. That’s what has kept her going through the years; her supporters are her greatest accomplishments.
