"Started from the bottom now we here!" Lametria "Lulu" Jackson also known to the instagram world as Lulu, grew up believing she would become the first female in the NBA. Yes!

You read that correctly the National Basketball Association, not the WNBA. Coming straight out of Ferguson, Missouri Lulu's dreams lead her to places she would have never even imagined."

I was always the funny person but comedy never crossed my mind," until she attended an open mic and told her homegirl she can do what the comedian did.

After contemplating whether or not she would make an attempt to do stand up and work through her fears and anxiety, she finally allowed her friend to make her a flyer, so she'd have to commit. Her first stand up in 2017 gave her the confidence to pursue comedy when she heard the roaring laughter of one girl in the audience."

Everything I say is the truth and really how I feel." Lulu proclaimed while recalling a stud on TikTok giving their perspective of how studs should carry themselves. So she made a video in response to address the stereotypes associated with LGBTQ titles such as "stud." "I just want women to be comfortable no matter their appearance and not fall under the pressure to be masculine because society makes it so hard to be yourself," she told Compulsive.

Lulu goes on to state that her response to that video is what got her all of her followers. Her most recent viral video "Beyonce Tickets" started trending after she had a conversation with her girlfriend about how high the tickets were. "Beyonce! DON'T. DO. THAT!

Fantasia can sing just as good… We ain't even get our tax return yet." She proclaimed, taking social media by storm with those very relatable statements that many were thinking but not saying.

As a reserved and introverted individual who depended on her mom for a lot of things, Lulu decided to make a big move to Texas where she would proclaim her independence. Little did she know there would be signs that would encourage her to keep going. "Lena Waithe showed me that I had something."

After doing a few reviews on TikTok and instagram on the shows Twenties and The Chi, Lulu received personal invites along with other influencers to recap the show's season. These opportunities revealed to her than she was on the right track.

"I use my content, stand up, acting, music and dancing as an outlet for my social anxiety." During the pandemic Lulu took the opportunity to improve her craft and build her social media presence by committing full time to acting, monologues workshops and more. Lulu participated in TSAW, an acting workshop class created by Tasha Smith, in which she attended a class with Lil Meech and watched as BMF was released on Starz. "This put me in go mode."

Lulu most recently landed a role in a must see thriller, Condition of Return directed by Tommy Stovall now available on all streaming platforms. "I worked really hard on this project. I'm really excited for everyone to see the film. Working alongside Annalynne McCord gave me so much confidence and I learned so much from her.

Condition of Return is just the beginning for me. I am excited to see what the future holds." She recently graced the screens of St. Louis Fox 2 News and hosted a movie premiere in her hometown at the MX Movie Theater. The event was attended by family and friends, featuring a red carpet with interviews conducted by Ruger Vision and Compulsive Magazine.

Compulsive inquired if there was anything that surprised her about the film once it was released and Lulu shared it was the crowd's reaction and laughter. "Initially, I didn't think the role of Shorty was meant to be funny, but I was so weak (laughing) while submitting the audition. Maybe it was the way I spoke or me just really stepping into character; but I gave myself in Shorty. For my scenes to hit like that to people all over, that's dope! The best feeling in the world!"

Lulu has also landed her first leading role in the romantic film Unexplored, directed by Angelia Jackson and Lenyx Rose. "It's a love story, I'm with the ladies on this one," she expresses.

When asked about her dream roles, Lulu enthusiastically stated that she would love to play a comedic role and also mentioned her desire to play a rapper, and provide vibes like King Von, K Camp, J Cole, Drake, Lil Durk etc. "I feel like I can bring a type of energy in films and shows the world has never seen before from a female." She also aspires to join the cast of Issa Rae's "Rap Sh!t," believing she'd be a perfect fit.

Lulu is on the cusp of launching her own podcast and actively seeking more acting opportunities. She is working diligently to secure more stand-up comedy gigs and is currently in search of representation from a talent agency. Lulu is accepting bookings for stand-up comedy shows while also preparing for her own "Return to the Stage" comedy show.

The future holds great promise for Lulu, and as she aptly states, "nonstop growth elevation." Don't miss out on the meteoric rise of this multi-talented sensation. Lulu is on her way to the top, and she's bringing her unique brand of humor and authenticity with her.
