LGBTUDRGRD INTERVIEW: InfiniteKFC – @GoddessOfRap Back in *2009

 

EvOn: What’s Good?
InfiniteKFC: Jah Is Good!!!

EvOn: Can you give us a quick introduction of yourself for our visitors?

InfiniteKFC: I’m Infinite Knowledge For Cherishing bka InfiniteKFC. I’m one of the south’s finest femcees…not because I say so but my work speaks for itself. I’ve been Awarded Best Female Rap Artist at the JMAs (Jackson Music Awards), nominated Best Mixtape (Female) at the SEAs (Southern Ent. Awards), Awarded Best HipHop/Rap Artist at the MBAs (Mississippi Best Awards), and I could go on but this is the quick introduction, right? Moving on, I’m 1/3 of the group Dread Bred but currently working on my solo career right now. I’m still working with my group of course but its only so much you can say and do when you’re apart of a group. Right now, I’m just evolving musically and still working as co-CEO of Dread Bred Music Group & Dread Bred Entertainment.

EvOn: So what’s happening with you & the music at the moment?

InfiniteKFC:I’m currently promoting The TakeOver DVD Vol. 1 featuring live performances, backstage access, interviews, and celebrity appearances by Yo Gotti, Pastor Troy, Dread Bred, La Chat, Jade & Keenyah from America’s Next Top Models, and several other hot celebrities. Its one of the hottest DVDs in the south right now independently. For more information just check out the sneak peek @ www.youtube.com/InfiniteKFC. Like I mentioned before I’m working on my solo LP and it’s titled Get Rich Or Die.

EvOn: Are there any plans for any Collabs anytime soon?

InfiniteKFC: I’ve talked to Sammie manager so likely Sammie & I’ll let my fans pick another artist for me, just don’t break me fans – please. lol

EvOn: When people check out ya music What has the response been like so far?

InfiniteKFC: The response has been beyond what I’ve expected. The fans really love my music. I wouldn’t be anything without my fans and I appreciate them dearly. My fans stand beside me 100% but they were eager to hear more of my solo music so this album has to be the perfect imperfection. My fans have been waiting and since they’ve been patient, I owe them the best of me.

EvOn: what inspires you to make ya tracks?

InfiniteKFC: Life inspires my music, specifically my life experiences.

EvOn: what’s the Gay hip hop scene like in the US?

InfiniteKFC: I can’t answer that because my fanbase is primarily “straight.” I’m not into division and I don’t think it should be “gay” music and “straight” music separately…I do music for everyone and who I’m sleeping with has nothing to do with who should be listening to me.

EvOn: How Hard is it to make it in this industry as a female Rapper, and is being Gay important to sale your music or should you keep ya sexuality to your selfs?

InfiniteKFC: Its not hard for me. Its a particular method and most aren’t willing to abide by those methods. Its hard to have a family and love life with music. Women tend to prefer those companionship more than men so we tend to give up before we’re recognized or before its truly a reason to give up to pursue a love life or family.

EvOn: Are there any other artists from the US/UK or from the gay scene that we should be looking out for right now?

InfiniteKFC: Unfortunately I’m not too familiar with any artist other than my squad. I just haven’t had time, but I’m sure it is.

EvOn: If you wasn’t making music what do you think you would be doing right now?

InfiniteKFC: I’ve never thought of that? If Jah felt a need to take music out of my life, I’d spend my life loving something just as beautiful as music – a woman. Working a job, nah. I don’t do those – I seem to always find a way to get money. I guess thats what you call a hustler’s ambition. I’m an entrepreneur whether in corporate life or on the streets. I’m sure I can match what I’m making now, if not probably more.

EvOn: How important do you think it is for new artist’s to know their history and appreciate the different elements of Hiphop even if they don’t partake in them?

InfiniteKFC: Honestly, I’m not into HipHop. Kudos to all the hiphoppers out there but I’m just writing my story. No one in history can tell me about my life. No one period can tell me about my life but me. This is my personal opinion but if I studied the history…I would be doing what everyone else is doing now, copy-cat rapping, whether consciously or subconsciously. To me, studying history makes you a follower…the only thing I need to know from history are the mistakes, so I won’t make them.

EvOn: any final words / shoutouts before we finish?

InfiniteKFC: Thanks Jah for allowing me to see another beautiful day. Thanks to everyone who believes in me and my music, especially my fans, and thank you Evon!

::Nor From Kin Music bully Interview ::

kin4life

ARCHIVE!

EvOn: What’s Good?

KIN4LIFE: chillin, whats poppin over thur?

EvOn: All Is Well, So Can you give us a quick introduction of yourself for our visitors?

KIN4LIFE: Yea my name is NOr 1/2 the female duo KIN..you can check us at KIN4LIFE if you don’t know who we are..

EvOn: You’re a member of KIN, So what’s happening with you guys at the moment?

KIN4LIFE: Right now we’re touring the U.S and canada. also working on our anticipated album “Life of a Rock Star”. We doing alot developing our roster “Kacie” and “Kay Smith”. They are 2 solo artists signed to our label Noriq Records,Inc.

EvOn: So how is your partner in Rhyme IQ?

KIN4LIFE: Q is chillin handling business as usual.

EvOn: Are there any plans for a Solo album or Collabs anytime soon?

KIN4LIFE: No plans for a solo album right now. Staying focused on the team ya na mean. people have been tryna seperate KIN since day one but thats not happening…so sorry folks you might have to wait a while before that happens.

EvOn: When people check out ya music What has the response been like so far?

KIN4LIFE: The response has been overwhelmingly positive and incredible..95 percent of listeners become life long fans of what we do. They recognize how hard we been grinding and the quality of the music that we put out. Thanks to everyone who has been riding with us since the beginning.

EvOn: what inspires you to make ya tracks?

KIN4LIFE: Life is the main inspiritation. day to day experience. the music allows us to exhale all the bullshit we go thru and the fun stuff too.

EvOn: what’s the Gay hip hop scene like in the US?

KIN4LIFE: The gay hip hop scene is pretty much a touchy subject. alotta the mc’s that are gay and out and doing music dont really make good enuff music to compete. dont get me wrong there are some talented gay musicians but they arent recieving the recognition they deserve. hip hop in america is a male driven industry that believes men should be killers and women should be sexed up. the media is responsible for alot of that as well. its not easy to be gay and accepted as a serious competitor in the game.

EvOn: How Hard is it to make it in this industry as a female Rapper, and is being Gay important to sale your music or should you keep ya sexuality to your selfs?

KIN4LIFE: Its hard for female rappers to make it because most people assume that women arent talented enuff to write their own music and produce their own music like alotta women have been doing out here. they find some way to break you down. we could’ve been signed back in the day but we didnt want to fit the mold of the “little KIM’ image..if you aint sucking dick or talking bout how good you suck it no one wants to touch your project. Being gay definitely is a factor in record sales based upon how you market the record. if your doing gay events and venues chances are that demographic will support the project.

EvOn: Are there any other artists from the US/UK or from the gay scene that we should be looking out for right now?

KIN4LIFE: In the U.S you gotta look out for KIN of course..but bands like Team Gina and Marla Hooch are hot if you like that crossover feel. Theres alotta talented gay artists on the come up!

EvOn:: If you wasn’t making music what do you think you would be doing right now?

KIN4LIFE: I think i would be a professor in african american studies. I’m very interested in the history of my people. Our present society needs to be informed of the struggles that we been through so we can get our shit straight..

EvOn: How important do you think it is for new artist’s to know their history and appreciate the different elements of Hiphop even if they don’t partake in them?

KIN4LIFE: I’m not saying that you have to quote lyrics that were made before you were born but it is good to know how the hip hop game started, where its been and where its going. study the game. whoever your influences may be study what it is that they did to get where they are. everyone has a formula. take from each formula and create your own.

EvOn: any final words / shoutouts before we finish?

KIN4LIFE: Just look out for KIN. Make KIN a household name. If you don’t own anyone of our music you need it in your life..Respect to all hip hop lovers man..www.kin4life.com
KIN..if hip hop is dead then we the respirator..

LGBTUDRGRD INTERVIEW: @tttheartist Prt 1 *2009

Ok so i was digging thru my Archives on my other Personal Blog and i thought it would be a great idea to share with you all the LGBT Music Artist INTERVIEWS i did back in 2009/10 and i will be running more Up to Date interviews but before i do, lets have a look back at when it all started.

EvOn: What’s Good?

TT: LIFE 🙂

EvOn: Can you give us a quick introduction of yourself for our visitors?

TT: I go by TT the ARTi$T. I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale FlA…the goo ole Sunshine State. I started making rapping my sophomore year in high school (Shouts out to Kamesha;) and since then I have grown into the artist I am today. Creating and evolving one song at a time.

EvOn: So what’s happening with you & the music at the moment?

TT: Presently I am doing a lot of perfoming along the EASTCOAST. I have a mixtape out right now “I Arti$t” and I am starting my label Houseoft Productions which facilitate all facets of fine art, photography, fashion, music, video, and performance.

EvOn: Are there any plans for any Collabs anytime soon?

TT: Not at the moment of course if anyone is interested in collabing with me I am always open to that. I would love to collab with some big names like Erykah Badu, Bjork, Madonna, Andre 3000, Kanye, of course just to name a few

EvOn: When people check out ya music What has the response been like so far?

TT: Uuum ..”Yo ever since I got your mixtape I can’t stop listening to it” Also I get a lot of respect from my male counterparts which is great , I didnt have to show my ass or degrade my character to establish my voice amongst the overpowering male dominated industry.

EvOn: what inspires you to make ya tracks?

TT: Life as simple as it can be followed by Emotion

EvOn: what’s the Gay hip hop scene like in the US?

TT: WACK could be better represented there are not enough images of hot gay acts in my opinion. I think that there is a lot of unchartered talent out here and it needs to be heard seen broadcast all of the above!

EvOn: How Hard is it to make it in this industry as a female Rapper, and is being Gay important to sale your music or should you keep ya sexuality to your selfs?

TT: I don’t think its hard at all to make it as a female emcee…I believe the challenge is how do you set yourself apart from what everyone else is doing. I am a gay artist but its not so important to me that I classify my music as “Gay”. I deal with real life subject matter that everyone can relate to gay or straight.

EvOn: Are there any other artists from the US/UK or from the gay scene that we should be looking out for right now?

TT: Hmmm idk oh JONTE HE IS FIERCE!!!! oh and KALIP LINZY he is a video artist but he is doing some really interesting things with art, video, and music you should youtube him.

EvOn: If you wasn’t making music what do you think you would be doing right now?

TT: ART

EvOn: How important do you think it is for new artist’s to know their history and appreciate the different elements of Hiphop even if they don’t partake in them?

TT: I think its important to be informed on culture in general. Its never a bad idea to be conscious. I encourage that as an artist to take the time and listen to the oldies. Honestly I was more of an r&b chick when it came to my playlist

EvOn: any final words / shoutouts before we finish?

TT: Stay tuned I am cooking up a big meal and look out for my singles “ANYDAY”, “OMG” and “KICK PUNCH” also visit www.myspace.com/houseoft to hear the music. peace and keep movin.
