SJ : How long have you been rapping?
MB : I started rapping when I was in High-School but I didn't start to take it serious and pursue it until about 9 years ago. I started winning competitions and I really got attention when I won the Lipstick Radio Best Female Rap award and the Urban Underground Awards in 2014.
SJ : What and who inspired you to tap into your talent?
MB : I grew up in a house where music was highly respected so I listened to my dads Scarface/Ghetto Boys instrumentals and freestyled on them. I think what inspired me to actually tap into my talent is loving the freedom of expressing myself through writing. I could sing and I could rap so I utilized my emotions through my song writing and that was what made me really want to be a music artist.
SJ : My final question. Moving forward, what is your ultimate goal for your music a and your brand?
MB : I have been through a lot of things dealing with being an underground female artist trying to break into mainstream. I think my ultimate goals now is to put my music on sites where I get paid even if it is a dollar. I want to make a profit from my craft. I feel like I did too many things for exposure in the past and got nothing from it. I also want to invest properly into my music and work on placement deals. So many artist are chasing these big labels but you can make a lot of money just from one or two placements. I want to create other lanes that don't just focus on my music but also my acting and writing. I just want to shine and create an unforgettable brand.
