How long have you been making music? How did you get started?
I have been making music for as long as I can remember, my dads involvement in the music industry encouraged me to start.
Was it always hip hop? Or were you doing more pop singing?
Predominantly hip hop but I have always been very versatile and so I love to explore other genres.
How would you describe your music ?
Honest, fun, vibey, energetic, witty.
Did the BBC’s Sound of 2017 change your career ?
No, but it was a great achievement nonetheless.
How has England shaped your music? What do you think of the UK hip hop today ?
England is very culturally diverse and so has allowed me to understand and engage with people from all walks of life, therefore allowing me to make my music more relatable.
How do you think the world’s interconnectedness has affected people and music?
It has made discovering new talent much easier and has also allowed people to explore and share their own talents on a wider scale.
"Hip hop has always been mainstream and will continue to be as it's one of the leading sounds" [Nadia Rose]
Hip hop culture in general, and the industry in particular, is very male dominated. What do you think are the positive aspects of being a woman on this show and in this industry, and what are the negatives that you’ve experienced?
A positive would be that we can stand out as females because the market isn’t as saturated. A negative is always going to be that stigma of 'wow, you're good for a girl'.. Why can't we just be good!
What are your plans? Do you have a new release, or anything else lined up?
Yes, I have lots of new music I cant wait to unleash!
What artists would you call out as references for your style? Obviously Rihanna…
Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Eminem, Lil Kim.
A collaboration with Stormzy next?
Watch this space!
Hip hop are too mainstream now. Do you agree?
Hip hop has always been mainstream and will continue to be as it's one of the leading sounds.
