Featured artist: Nene B. – West Coast Female Rapper
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Nene B..
How did you decide to become an artist?
Nene B.: I've been into music my whole life. Growing up in South Central things were definitely hard and I didn't know how to express how I was feeling to others. Instead I turned to writing poems and that turned into me rapping. For a long time I didn't let anyone hear me. I ended up recording with a few of my homeboys I grew up with and they loved me. That boosted my confidence and that's when I knew I wanted to make it my career.
The best advice I was given as an artist is stay focused. I was told to not change anything about me to make anybody feel comfortable. I write all of my music and I was told to not stop. To also apply pressure,promote myself and never stop networking.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I never played live or given a concert, but I'm working on getting a manager to book me shows. I know I can do it without a shadow of a doubt.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
I see the snakes, I smell the hating I observe shit while I'm calculating.
