What genre of music best describes your style of music?

The genre that best describes my style of music would fall under West coast hip hop and rap.

Life is my biggest inspiration. With all the ups and downs, I try to stay motivated and push forward no matter what. I love expressing that in my music.

As an artist from the Bay Area, who are your greatest musical influences when it comes to your sound? 

Coming from the Bay Area, I’ve always loved listening to E-40, Too Short, and Mac Dre. However, as a female rapper, I feel that EVE and Left Eye have influenced me the most. I’ve always gravitated toward their style and flow.

With all the controversy surrounding females in Hip-Hop ex. (Nicki Minaj vs. Lotto & Cardi B) Do you believe there’s room for more female artists to share the spotlight in such a competitive industry? 

Absolutely, there is always room for others to shine. Although it’s a competitive industry, I feel each artist has their own style to represent and a purpose to live out. There are so many different ways to inspire people and that is my ultimate goal.

What sets you apart from many of the female artists that are currently in Hip Hop today? 

By being my most true and authentic self, I have my own unique style that people gravitate to. People tell me I’m different and I’m okay with that. I don’t want to be anyone else but me.

Listening to your music you give us something different as a lyricist and songwriter can we expect that from your entire “Keep It Runnin” EP? 

Absolutely, my entire EP is based upon the struggles that I have faced as a single mother pursuing my career and everyday challenges that women face on the daily basis, and how I overcame them. You can expect encouragement, you can expect realness and you can expect a vibe.
