Hey Afrodite! How’ve you been?
I've been great! I just finished some summer classes so i'm happy to have more time to make music.
Can you tell our readers the most important piece of advice you’ve received throughout your musical career so far?
I think the advice that's stuck to me the most is that you're never the same person twice. So it's important to capture your thoughts and ideas as they come to you because some times they turn out to be the best songs or poems later. I find myself writing in random places a lot sometimes.
How was the curation process for “Sorry”? Did your vision for this song ultimately come true?
I actually wrote it after getting someone upset and I kind of wanted to apologize but also be honest about how i felt at the time. Recording it was cool because the producer, R€UBBO¥, is also a close friend of mine so we recording at his house and he handled all the engineering because that's his thing.
As a female rapper, do you ever encounter subsequent boundaries within the music industry?
Sometimes people assume I sing, or underestimate whatever I'm going to rap about. Some people put me in a box but none of that really bothers me. I don't limit myself or my art and I intend on being myself both in and behind the music.
Can we expect to see any new releases for the rest of 2019?
I'm actually finalizing my first EP right now. It's going to have five songs and I'm planning some visuals for my favorite songs on the project. I'm super excited to share it with everyone. Anyone who comes to my performances may have heard a song or two before but I'm excited to publicize it. I'm proud of the progress I've made so far and I'm excited to keep going.
