Who are your top 5 influences? Answer: when I first started doing music all my influences were artists from Tampa. Phaze Jones, YZM, Nico sweet,, mulahni, and Indie_indigo. But now that I know what my sound is and who I am a little better, my influences are Deetranada, Bree runway, Cleotrapa, New York and Savannah Christina. All black women who have changed my life in one way or another.
When are your new projects coming out? Answer: I just put my first project out, Bald Headed Heaux Shit, on the 15th so I’m not too sure when I’m going to put out the second one but I pray soon though. I don’t wanna wait a year or two to put out another project but I don’t want it to be rushed I wanna take my time and show my growth.
What helped you get into music? Used to have a radio show on HOK radio and I used to interview artist in Tampa. They truly inspired me to start doing my own music because I was always afraid that I would never be good enough. Now two years later I’d like to say I’ve definitely grown from that point of wanting to fit in and make music like everyone around me and I’m finally making music that I love and soothes my soul.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? Thank you so much for supporting me and for listening to this crazy ass girl who is insecure and self-conscious trying to get herself out. Y’all really help me figure out who I am in a sense and boost my head up. By the way my fans are called the PPS it stands for power puff Shawties. AND Being a HEAUX does not mean that you go out and give yourself to everyone. Society is going to call you a HOE no matter what you do say or act like so you might as well just be the best HEAUX you can be and HEAUX IT UP!
What are your biggest goals for 2021? I’ve written in my manifestation whiteboard that I want to be able to perform at a big show, get a big feature and let other cities in other states and other countries know who Emmpowerr is. Another goal of mine would be able to do a Kalab project with either a producer or another artist I think that be so fun to put two or three heads together and put all of our faces on it.
