MSCHYCITY: I was born in Harvey, IL (Chicago Suburbs), raised in Minneapolis, MN. Right now I reside in Dallas, TX.
IAA: What is your music background?
MSCHYCITY: I’ve always loved to write poetry to express my thoughts and feelings since I was 11 years old. Back then I was very shy. Even my mom had no idea I had such talent. I kept it hidden while branching out and turning some of my poems into actual songs. After moving to Dallas in 2009, the main radio stations would always play a lot of local artists, right along with mainstream artists. It was highly motivating. I then started recording my own music. My first released track was called “D-Town”. Since then I continue to record, perform, and travel for projects.
IAA: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
MSCHYCITY: I am determined to succeed with the talent I am blessed with. I believe if you have a talent it should be displayed. I enjoy making music. I admire learning and expanding my vocabulary to better express my thoughts. I record my music because my goal is to be a mainstream artist right along with Nicki Minaj, who I am a big fan of by the way. These days there’s one female MC artist mainstreamed at a time. Because our styles are absolutely different, I want to change that. There can and will be more than one main female MC artist.
IAA: What are your songs about?
MSCHYCITY: My songs are mainly about what comes along with life. That could be about an experience I went through, or someone I knew, whether it’s a success or failed experience. Independence and confidence. The good and bad of love. Or make them dance with club bangers flowing about nightlife and the ego that comes with it.
IAA: Who is your fan base directed towards?
MSCHYCITY: Other than having a mature audience, ages 18-35, there is no specifics when it comes to gender or race. My bittersweet flow naturally attracts both men and women of any ethnicity.
IAA: Who are your musical influences?
MSCHYCITY: Definitely Missy Elliot, Shawnna, and now Nicki Minaj. Their styles are all very different, but they still are highly talented female artists. I’m also highly influenced by a lot of R&B artists like Lauren Hill, Beyoncé, Jazmine Sullivan, and now K-Michelle.
IAA: How would you describe your music to people?
MSCHYCITY: My music is lyrically bittersweet. Spunky mixed with sexy. Very versatile on the style of rhythm beats I write too. I can make you dance, but I can also make you chill with a constant head bob listening to every single word.
IAA: What makes you stand out from other artists?
MSCHYCITY: My consistency is what’s going to blow people’s minds. I’m very passionate about my music, you can hear it through my delivery. I will be myself, say what I feel, say what I think. Mainly my bitter sweet character along with my own unique style will attract many.
IAA: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?
MSCHYCITY: I am currently working on a very deep song called “Get Strong” using a syncopated bounce style. I’m very excited about the release. The track “Judy Booty” by Sean Napalm featuring myself was released worldwide August 1st, 2012 on many distributed websites, which is currently being performed throughout the DFW and surrounding area night clubs and venues.
IAA: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
MSCHYCITY: My career goals consist of my talents of a female artist being highly recognized. I am confident that I will become mainstream. In the next 10 years I see myself fully successful in the music industry, not only continuing to make music, but one day help with producing music videos for myself and other artists. I will add more value with my Graphics and Multimedia degree.
