IAA: What city and state are you from?
MISS MISSION: I am from Lorain, Ohio aka Steel City.
IAA: What is your music background?
MISS MISSION: I don’t have a really big musical background. My dad plays the guitar and I was in the choir in the 9th and 10th grade. Other than that I always kept a set of headphones on my ears blasting music (all types of genres).
IAA: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
MISS MISSION: The reason I want to record and release my own music is because I want to give a different perspective to the female hip-hop community. I have a different message, a different style/swagger to me. I’m not like the everyday common artist, I’m unpredictable. I like to rap about my life, opinions, feelings, experiences, issues and my emotions. I don’t like to just rap about trendy topics, that’s too easy, my music is deeper than that. I want my music to become a movement.
IAA: What are your songs about?
MISS MISSION: My songs are about me! My songs are about my home, my orientation, my life, my flow, my swag, relationships, girls, sex, love, pain, dreams, ambitions, the military and my experiences. I want my fans to get to know me personally because I take music very personally. I don’t want to give out a facade.
IAA: Who is your fan base directed towards?
MISS MISSION: My fan base is directed towards the more liberal/open minded crowd. I don’t want to just categorize my music and say “these type of people or those type of people” because I try to hit on all aspects. I try to make music everyone can feel.
IAA: Who are your musical influences?
MISS MISSION: My musical influences are Bone Thugs N Harmony, Tupac, Eazy-E, Eminem, Eve, Missy Elliot, DMX, Master P. Recently it’s been Machine Gun Kelly, Wale and J.Cole.
IAA: How would you describe your music to people?
MISS MISSION: The way I would describe my music to someone is that it’s like nothing they have ever heard from a female before. I’m going to give you some goose bumps at times. Sometimes, I will make you teary eyed. I give a wide range, it’s like an emotional tornado.
IAA: What makes you stand out from other artist?
MISS MISSION: I stand out from other artists because I’m different. I’m not the typical female rapper that’s the only way I can describe myself. I am who I am.
IAA: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?
MISS MISSION: Some upcoming projects on my mixtape “Welcome To OH10” that will be out very soon. Please look for it on all the mixtape sites next month. I have another video coming out, and you can YouTube me for previous videos. I am also working on my next mixtape which will be out hopefully at the end of the year or beginning of next. It’s going to be called “Steelmatic“.
IAA: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
MISS MISSION: My career goals are to become the greatest female emcee ever. I want to change the industry perception of female artists. It’s a new Era, people want change, and they want to hear something new. I want to give that to them. In 10 years I see myself being in a CEO position like Jay-Z, Diddy, or Dre . I want to find future artists and help them reach their dreams.
