Side Effects (Produced by PREMISE)

“Side effects takin’ over my brain and my mind…” Side Effects is a song that has literally been years in the making. Now that it has finally arrived, I hope that you will listen to it with open ears and an open mind.

Hear Me Roar: International Women’s Day 2021

Today is International Women’s Day 2021, an important day for recognizing women everywhere across all socially constructed divisions and arbitrarily decided upon lines. On this day it is important that we reflect on who women are and why we recognize our gender on this day. Being a woman is increasingly understood as an identity and not necessarily a gender assignment upon birth. While yes, anatomically, if you are assigned a certain body at conception by nature then you will most likely fall into the category of being female, however you may also grow to identify as a woman with time, … Continue reading Hear Me Roar: International Women’s Day 2021

NEW MUSIC: Uncanny

We all know that relationship, you know, the one you get into because it fulfils some sort of fantasy? Well, maybe I just described every relationship to a certain extent, but you catch my drift. Years ago I was involved very briefly with someone with a striking resemblance to a celebrity crush. And, as you do, I wrote and recorded a song about the “situationship”. The relationship plays out in the lyrics of Uncanny from start to finish with an important message at the end of the track. Shoutout to Masta Ace and Jean Grae for always capturing my attention … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Uncanny

DAY 17: Chess Moves

Years ago I recognized the need to create a brand for my artistry. Everyone in the industry has one, and so it felt as though the smartest thing to do was to pick a brand that would have the greatest longevity for my personality. I factored in things like happiness, my interests, and the sustainability of a persona. In the end, I couldn’t find anything except authenticity. I committed to speaking my truth as I knew to be at any given time. I committed to being myself. I committed to making music and art that was in my heart and … Continue reading DAY 17: Chess Moves

Van Gogh of Rap

When it comes to many different types of art, people are completely fine, and totally normal about you being an artist. It’s like, “oh you paint? Cool. That’s nice, you paint in your leisure time, that’s really nice for you.” You know, that kind of response. But if you’re a rapper, or a singer, it’s as though you automatically must consider yourself as the best in your genre… or that you aspire to be the best in your genre.  Like you have to be the Van Gogh of rap. And I gotta ask, do you aspire to be Van Gogh? … Continue reading Van Gogh of Rap

MUSIC VIDEO: The Devil’s Mistress

***Trigger Warning*** If you have been following me for some time you’ll know that I am vocal about being raped by an ex. The reality of these situations are that you often don’t always know how to harness your energy in regards to the assault. I use writing. I use art. I use music. ”The Devil’s Mistress” helped me heal at a chaotic time in my life. I remember receiving the beat from Charles Hamilton, I remember the words pouring out of me into my notebook, and I remember standing there in the recording booth imagining rapping these words right … Continue reading MUSIC VIDEO: The Devil’s Mistress
