Who’s the biggest star that follows your videos?
I can’t say who’s the biggest right off, but I’ve seen a lot of popular movie stars and rappers share my videos, and I thought that was pretty cool. Shout out to Lisa Raye for the love.
Are you recognized out in public?
Laughs…Yes! Surprisingly yes and it’s mainly just me speaking on my videos often times, but I’ve taken pictures with fans in shopping stores, and ran into fans at gas stations, and they recognize me and the various cars I own. It’s still kinda strange to experience that, but everyone seems to be pretty cool.
How are your kids adapting to your new found fame?
They are super cool and supportive. They realize things are different even though I’m still just Dad to them, but they like saying their Dad is a big YouTuber to all of their friends, they get a kick out of that…Laughs.
What’s next for Lionel B?
Man, so much! I have quite a few projects I’m working on this year and next, once the world gets back to normal, I hope. I’m already in production for a car reality show, and also, developing a few gaming apps, restarting my clothing line Bourgy Gang and I’m working with a live-streaming service.
