Back in March, this young emcee was featured on NEW LEASE MUSIC with Loyalty Is Rare…now she’s back with a rather smooth offering, Get Some Money, which is available as a free download via SoundCloud…but wait !!! Before you rush off to get your copy, why not stick around a moment and get to know her?
NLM: Hey how you doing? Please introduce yourself and where you from.
RGD: I’m great. Wassup, I’m RGD that stands for RudeGyalDejah. I’m from Nashville, TN.
NLM: Tell us what projects you working on at the moment?
RGD: I’m working on my debut mixtape 2.Die.4 dropping at the end of the year.
NLM: At what point did you want to become a hip-hop artist?
RGD: Middle school. I started with poetry first tho. I finally started recording December of last year.
NLM: Were you in a group before you flying solo?
RGD: Always solo. I tried starting a group back in high school that was a FAIL lol. My friends weren’t into it
as much as me.
NLM: How would describe your music? Would you compare yourself to any of your music influences of today?
RGD: I would describe it as honest. It shows all sides of me. Me in a vulnerable state. My fears, insecurities, aspirations, everything.
NLM: What do you think of the female role in the hip-hop game today?
RGD: I feel the female role is getting bigger with all these female artists getting the recognition they deserve. We’re prospering right now.
Girl power all day.
NLM: What mainstream (or even indie) artists you’re into at the moment?
RGD: Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, D’Angelo’s The Black Messiah is my favorite album right now. I listen to R&B more than Rap believe it or not.
NLM: If you had a choice to collaborate with just ONE mainstream artist, who would it be and why?
RGD: Erykah Badu. I love her so much. She’s one of my favorites of all time. I feel like we could make a dope record together. I enjoy her honesty in her music and the vibes.
NLM: If you were granted three wishes, what would it be?
RGD: Infinite wealth & knowledge, peace on Earth.
NLM: How can potential fans make contact with you?
RGD: My soundcloud, twitter, IG are all @RudeGyalDejah
