Trina Talks Female Rappers, Music, Her Albums & More

1. october 2016 at 15:09 | Marquetita
Trina was interviewed in Copenhagen for almost an hour and she talked from music to politics.
Trina talks booty music today and how it influeced her music. Back in the day when Trina released Pull Over, it was about Miami, but nowadays, booty music is everywhere in the world. She also mentions selling sex in music - she believes it demonstrates that a woman can be a boss woman and it is about being the badass and confident.
She talks about the rap industry being male dominated and that's why no matter what you do, you have to please men whether you are fully covered or not to be a succsseful female rapper.
Quuen Latifah, Yo Yo and MC Lyte were rappers that Trina looked up to. Their style was different and they were killing all guys even though it wasn't sexual - it was about the skill and being unified. On the other hand, the explosion with female sexuality came with the emergence of Lil Kim and Foxy Brown. Their lyrics were all about that "I'm that bitch" - woman killin and slicin dudes. You have to be confident in order to do that and Trina is fearless, strong, independet and confident woman, she's not intimidated.
Furthermore, Trina doesn't compare rappers. She believes everybody has diferent styles. Missy Elliott is a genius with her own music. And wheres Da Brat is tough with Chicagoan baggy clothes and beautiful face killin guys, Miami music is about sexiness and beach clothes. Moreover, it is a merge of all styles - Spanish, Latino, Caribbean etc.
Trina also claims that if women artists are not signed, it separates these artists from the public since there is no budget to put your music out. Having bunch of guys directing you to do it is a better solution. Nonetheless, women do not collaborate together since they are catty. Trina also reminisces how it used to be back in the day - When Kim, Da Brat, Missy Elliott, Angie Martinez and Lisa Lopes released Ladies Night (Not Tonight), that is what female hip hop is about. The same could apply to Lady Marmelade, where Lil Kim and Missy Elliott were featured - it was powerful and explosive. And since we don't have that, the effect is not big. There is a lot of artists and you see them on social media but it has no impact because they are indepdendent.
Being artist is also about creativity. People are not being themselves on social media because they are scared of what other people will say. But it is OK to do something different. As an artist, you just want to grow and break the Internet. You can't be creative when you are worried what everybody thinks of you. Nevertheless, Trina is confident and she hardly found any insecurities in her in this intwerview, she doesn't care about other people. She grew up around strong women with no dad and this is where her confidence comes from.
While the Baddest Bitch album was about being real, Diamond Princess was rather smooth; Trina still wanted rough tracks on it but at the same time, she wanted to emphasize the sexuality.
She also talks about having records with Missy Elliott and Still Da Baddest as her favorite album. She wanted to name her album Hurricane Katrina since she felt so powerful, but then she felt bad for all the people from New Orleans.
Interestingly, Trina hates the label "rapper," she's an entertainer, which means that you're giving people a part of you.
She says that she wouldn't start making political records because of the upcoming US elections. She is a rather fun person.
Finally, when asked what she wants to be remembered as, she says "da baddest bitch". She started it and she created it!

1. october 2016 at 15:07 | Marquetita
Diamond came by DJ Smallz Eyes to decode her mixtape Pardon My Slayage.
She used the title in a sense to refresh it and make it more vulgar since the album is sassy and hardcore. Slay means we came to shut it down, it was more unapologetic than the remaining mixtapes she put out in the past. Her intention was to make the album cover queenish, royalty and bossy. Diamond reveales she is also boricua!
The P.M.S. was done a long time ago but she wanted to make her fans wait. It was DJ Scream who put the track lising together. She says that the mixtape is about where she's been, party music, personal tracks. To find out what she said about every single track, check it out below:

1. october 2016 at 15:06 | Marquetita

Nitty Scott On Running Away, Fake Female MC Rules & Performs on Ladies First

24. september 2016 at 22:21 | Marquetita
Nitty Scott stopped by Hot97 and let us peep inside her music career and her psyche.
As many female rappers talk about how they are bad bitches and that they are poppin and lit, Nitty chooses to spit meaningful lyrics that are not superficial and random. Furthermore, she says that people feel that being a dope rapper spittin real stuff cannot go together with being a sexy rapper and she believes that she was forced to choose either the former or the latter. People told her to "fem it up" but first, she wanted to prove what she's about with her music and if people come up to her and say they like her music PLUS she is sexy then that's what she wanted to demonstrate since she believes that nowadays you have to be naked to get respect.

She also talks about how she left for New York to pursue her career in the music industry. She believed in herself and she had a plan even though she struggled with her lif such as the rent etc. She left when she was 17, before graduation and the first thing was to get her diploma. She had little money from Florida and she did not want to come back home. She wanted to let the world know that she will make it. And it took her long time to get where she is now. Even though she was mad at her parents, she reconnected with them. What is more, she was very lonely and without TV and computer.

Buddha is one of Nitty's inspirations. Growing up she was confused because her family had all religions from Christianity to Islam. She suffered from anxiety - she kept asking who were are, why we are here. She chose Buddhism since it is a peaceful religion. It doesn't requir killing other people or luring other people to convert. It brought her peace. Her album The Art of Chill came out as a result of her finding Buddhism and finding the place in herself.

Her favorite artist is Stevie Knicks. She is the one who inspired her as well. She grew up listening to her. She adds that if she could make a record with her then she would feel like she could quit rap Smějící se. In the video, she also mentions her favorite rappers and those are basically artists from the Boombox families. Interestingly, when she was asked who she would rather work with - Lauryn Hill or Jean Grae, she answered Lauryn Hill since she is the queen to her even though she would definitely want a record with both of them.

To summarize, all her struggles, living in New York and her exploring her identity shaped her music. She is working on a new project, so hopefully it will be out soon! At the end of the interview, Nitty spits fire!
