This week I spoke with the staff of XXL for a segment they call “The Break.” They asked me a few questions about life and music including flill in the blank statements like: My style and/or skills have been compared to… and I answered…
Comparisons are weird. After seeing my video for a record called ‘Switch’ Timbaland flew me to Miami to work with him. When I arrived, I played him a song called ‘Dear Father’ that I wrote about my father’s suicide. After just hearing two records, he said, ‘You are the best f*cking rapper on the planet!!!!’ This is a man who has worked with damn near every artist under the sun and he said that about me. Just the other day on Shade45′s Sway in the Morning, Sway, HeatherB, Rich Nice, and Shaheem Reid had Twista on the show. They played a record called ‘Hi Industry’ off my latest project, The Coronation. Twista said,”that chick is cold!!! I can tell she listens to me and my flow sort of influenced her,” which is not the case. I spoke with Eric Sermon two months ago and he called me the female Nas. I spoke with MC Lyte in May and she said I will be one of the greats. Im saying all that to say, I’ve lyrically been compared to some of the greatest artist in the game by some of the greatest artist in the game. I appreciate the comparisons, but I don’t make music just to be compared with others. Sh*ts deeper than that for me. I just want to make incomparably great music.
Over all I thought is was a great interview and a great chance to answer a few questions that hadn’t really been asked.
