Today (Nov. 10), Lola Brooke unveiled her debut project, Dennis Daughter. In promotion of the release, she appeared on “The Breakfast Club” as their latest guest, where she explained the meaning behind its title.

“I’m an only child raised by a single parent, my mom. But I used to hang out with my father here and there,” she said to the hosts. “He would pick me up from school and everybody would always would always say, ‘Little D!’ They would call me Little D when they’d see me with my father, or Dennis Daughter, or whatever fits. They would just always add him in to my nickname.”

She continued, “I loved it so much. So now, I get to relive it, because my father is deceased now. So I can’t get those moments back, but I’m creating new moments… I feel like he’s still around.”

Later in the interview, Lola spoke on what led her into the hip hop realm. “I always say [that] rap chose me, I didn’t choose rap. It was just always there,” she stated. “The citizens of New York City was just like, ‘Yo, look, listen. You nice. I know this is a hobby for you, but you should take it serious.'” She admitted that, prior to creating music full time, she was a “9-to-5 girl” that worked at Little Caesars.

Dennis Daughter boasts collaborations alongside French Montana, Bryson Tiller, Latto, Yung Miami, and more. The 12-song effort was led by singles like “You,” “Pit Stop,” and a remix of the runaway hit “Don’t Play With It.”

Back in June, Lola joined the likes of GloRilla, Finesse2Tymes, Rob49, Fridayy, Central Cee, Luh Tyler, and TiaCorine as part of XXL‘s 2023 Freshman class. In addition to delivering a standout freestyle, the “So DISRESPECTFUL” rapper wowed viewers during the publication’s Freshman Cypher.
