24HHH: Introduce yourself to everyone that doesn’t already know who you are?
Lou Nac: Wuss up Hiphop this is Lou Nac aka Louie Cognac aka Glaciah aka Louie Delefante'. I am a part 3W's Committee the original 'Mack Pack' and member of the group 3 Dimensional out the DMV.
24HHH: How did you come up with your Artist name? Tell us about it.
Lou Nac: It isn't really too much to my name It's the alpha and the omega of my real name. I have actually picked up quite a few names over the years and in my travels. It kinda helps me to differentiate between where and how I know people.
24HHH: Where are you from, and what was it like growing up there?
Lou Nac: I am originally from Boston Massachusetts but grew up in the peach state. When I was about three, we moved Augusta, GA. It's hard to explain growing up in south, we grew up fast, a lot of hard lessons, but for the most part I lived a charmed life.
I played the piano and the drums and would make up little tunes and rap lines from time to time to say to girls. We were some "lil playas" back in the day. We'd pick up girls from Redwing(Skating Ring) to the Teen Clubs and house parties. It was mostly one big party until I started getting in trouble for it, lol. But all in all prolly my most treasured memories.
24HHH: Who were you raised by? Tell us your family situation. Got any brothers, sisters, or any siblings? Tell us about your childhood, and how it impacted your music?
Lou Nac: I was raised by both my parents. My mother for the most part. She thought me compassion and how to love. Most importantly, she taught me how to write down my thoughts and melodies, actually turn them into songs.
I have a big family consisting of 10 brothers and sisters between all of us. I am the youngest of them all so I got a lot of good advice. I would learn mostly
from my immediate older brother and sister. He made sure I was tough and strong willed and she taught me the basics of how to play the piano.
For me it was always always about the music though. I used to make little mixtapes back when they really were tapes. We would play ball, (listening to music) cut hair, (listening to music) I'd shower, (listening to music) watch t.v., (Listening to music) and I could go on. As an adolescence, my brother and I would have little dance battles. I'd play the piano and he'd play the drums.
24HHH: What age did you start making music?
Lou Nac: My second year of High-school we moved to Northern Virginia and that is when for the most part I started really making music. I was about 15.
24HHH: What inspired you to pursue making music?
Lou Nac: Besides how much fun the process was for me it was also my serenity. It was the only way I saw making sense of what I learned to be a troubling world. A more accurate portrayal would be my pursuit of burying myself in my music. I had to shut down some instances in my life, and music became my outlet and my refuge.
24HHH: What artists/producers do you work with? Or rubbed shoulders with?
Lou Nac: On the artist end, I have really only worked with my group. I have a lot of underground material that was made before I went to college.
On the producer end, I have worked with Charlie Brown, Epic the Dawn, Jaywaninc, Matcy P, NapstheLionMan, TrackPros, Wayno, and many others.

24HHH: Tell us about your newest single "In My Shoes", how did you come up with that, share us the story?
Lou Nac: My newest single is called "In My Shoes" it's based on a day I had a million things to do and a thousand things to plan. I felt overwhelmed but also blessed. I realized people will tell you what you can and can't do based off of their capabilities. I also found depending solely on the opinions of others would make me weak especially if that became how thought about myself. My strengths and weaknesses are mine to have or improve on. I vowed never to let anyone else have the power to tell me no and instead work with people who tell me how I can. The the track "In My Shoes" is about that in drastic detail.
