Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
Hello Note Magazine and viewers, I am an ordinary girl from Louisiana who grew up in Tennessee. You’d think coming from a stable home I’d be equipped with self love, proper social skills, and refusing to say no. I didn’t live the perfect family life as i have searched for years of open communication and self worthiness until I looked no further. I had put all of my energy into my pen and pad is what I call it when I take my emotions and turn them into lyrics which then form into a song. I’ve always told myself everything that I write comes from my head, the pain comes from my heart, put two and two together you have a song. That was the moment I realized that God is taking the steering wheel and redirecting my past shortcomings into a bright future as a rap artist.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
In my opinion, these are the qualities that make me different and unique from everyone else in the industry. I was able to see past my potential at the age of 18. I’ve encountered struggling artists like myself who are well and active on Facebook and all have similarly said “Im in it for the money” or “I just want to be famous” and I was telling myself I want to be the complete opposite. My sole purpose in becoming a rap artist is to not only to see it as a long term goal but to express my pain comfortably. I don’t have to be mindful of what Im saying or think about how someone else feels about what was said. The opportunities that I’ve been given I’ve been trying to reach with a laptop. This is a quality of mine because as of today phones are what keep productivity going making it easier for other artists to come up a lot quicker. A phone is something that I do not have right now. Although I’m not completely technology free it has prevented me from a feature with Tech N9ne and purchasing beats. I’ve always been told, “do all that you can and the rest will prevail.” Lastly, I am not a certified therapist but I enjoy listening to people talk to me about their personal struggles while I find a way to sympathize to what means most to them and give positive feedback if asked.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I was in my room with my laptop in front me like I’m in class searching for an instrumental beat to listen to because why not click on the beat and listen to a beat that YouTube has said I’ve already listened to even though my memory bank has begged to differ. Subconsciously, I look to my right and I see a pen and notepad starring back at me. My cousin had always encouraged me to write my feelings down that’s when I said okay let me put her words to use. When I had repeated what I had written down aloud while the beat was playing in the background, that was when God had tapped me on the shoulder and made it clear to me that rapping was the route I wanted to take.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
My biggest challenge was self identity. Growing up everyone goes through their corky stages of being a teenager in Middle School or High School or both. For me, it took me a lot longer to grow out of it because I was focused on trying to “fit in”. Another challenge of mine was sacrificing my own desires and happiness to make other people happy. If I would’ve continued to stay at mother bird’s nest, I would’ve been living for someone else’s dream instead of having the passion toward my music career.
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
The top 3 people that I want to meet are Jack Harlow, Dababy, and Pi’erre Bourne. Why? I’ve been a fan of Jack Harlow from listening to his music to mimicking his dance moves from his music videos “What’s Poppin”, “Way Out”, “Tyler Herro”, etc. Dababy is my second choice because I like how he switches his vocals to match the beat of a song and not to mention how lyrically gifted he is. “I been havin’ mood swings like a Gemini”. I see some similarities of myself in him and when that time comes I would like to collab with him. Saving the best for last ranking Pi’erre Bourne my last choice because he tells a story in two of his songs that resemble what Im going through now and difficulty of forgiving who I’ve thought ended me before.
