Let’s celebrate International Women’s Day with a roundtable discussion group and on the panel today we have Nilla, who is a talented MC. We have Kool Krys, once again, a wicked MC. We have Lady A.S.G., another dope MC, and we have Our Sis Sam, a hip-hop promoter. Welcome to the program everybody.”
You didn’t think of it as a woman. You thought of it as music that made you dance, music that made you feel something. And I think that’s the difference. We don’t experience music like we used to. We experience music in a very quick way on the Internet where we can decide just as fast as whether we like a picture or not, when we’re taking digital pictures, I don’t like this. This is a girl, I don’t like this. And depending on who’s in the room, you’re going to have a very different perspective on the music, I think.”
I didn’t choose this. I didn’t wake up one day, saying, ‘I’m gonna be a rapper and I’m gonna make it really hard for myself. I’m gonna choose a really hard area to break in to.’ No, it’s just the course of my life that brought me to this point. and so I don’t focus on it too hard. I just do what I do and make my music proper. I just work hard. I think that’s the base of any MC, that’s what they’re trying to do, Work hard, gain some respect, but I don’t want any respect from someone who is going to judge me before I even jump up on stage.”
