Go to sleep just to dream I can fly / watch myself as I pass by
wake up and I’m still so high from the flight / I gotta guess this is what they call the third eye
who says my dream scenes cant be reality / The Gods are in me, that’s not blasphemy
Demystified, I keep the shade off my middle eye / gazing at the citizens with blinders over their disguise
sunny forecast but they got a cloudy overcast
look at the bright lights across the ocean way / but don’t get caught up in the tidal waves

The Musician’s Roundtable that you held at the University of Louisville was great! It was informative and it’s nice to network with artists who are serious about their craft. I would definitely attend another event.
Oh my gosh, I would be totally stoked on stage to see you and Mama Pam out supporting me at a show! I’ll be posting an open mic/show schedule soon and will let you know the dates. Thanks for giving support to the local indie scene in Louisville. It really means a lot to up and coming artists.

Wasn’t born there but I rep it to the death
Got bored there, but I call my home there
Corn, cows, silo’s, tell you what I know
Burn cruise on the backstreets, gravel roads
Travel across the states, never find nicer folks
Find me under the tall shady oaks

Surprisingly, or not, many of the artists who I really appreciate musically are not in the hip hop genre. Outside of hip hop my favorite music genres are Psychedelic Rock and “Indie Alternative”. I love music that uses orchestra instruments and at the opposite end the rhythmic heavy drums of stoner rock.

Of course I’m influenced by Erykah Badu, The Roots, Mos Def, Outkast, Tupac, and Common just to name a few rap artists.
I be bringing it live, at the bar dive slanging the jive
They can say ew shes on that old school
But I’m on the jessy drive, yeah I keep it cool
They ask, she sounds like who?
I’m the wild card, Uno!
You know, first one on deck, last one on deck
My crew only places the big faces, invested in the sound

Thanks for the critique, any reply is good. I recorded myself for the first time ever just 3 months ago. Haha “hard”…I’m definitely not and will never go for coming off “hard”. I’m an educated female from Iowa, I’m the farthest thing from hood rap. The “weird rapper voice” is actually a compliment because what rapper wants to sound “normal”? As long as it’s not Nicki Minaj weird I’m cool. Also I definitely lack punchlines which are so trendy in rap. I like to think I have a classical hiphop approach. You can read my lyrics and they will follow thru coherently as if reading a story. But yes, at just 3 months I have accomplished a lot and have more growing to do everyday. I will be the first emcee of my kind hitting the airwaves.
