Nitty Scott : “I Don’t Want To Be Anybody’s First Lady”
On the heels of a new EP release, Nitty Scott chats with Respect Mag on the growth she has obtained in the process of creating her new EP The Boombox Diaries Vol.1,” why she won’t be anyone’s first lady, the reason behind her “Monster (Freestyle)” and more! Her new LP The Boombox Diaries Vol.1 will be available via itunes on Aug 28.
If she would ever consider being in a rap group : “I don’t want to be anybody’s first lady. I don’t want anybody to put their arm around me and say “She’s dope. Listen to her.” I’m not against a co-sign, but I want to stand on my own two feet. I want to be the face of my own movement.”
On why she did the “Monster” freestyle : “If I say, “Eff bad rappers!” and you’re like, “Why are you talking about Nicki Minaj?” then you think Nicki Minaj is a bad rapper. I didn’t say that. I said what I don’t support, what I’m not feeling. The other thing is that when you really break it down, the things that she represents, I feel like there are several women now and before in hip-hop that represent the same thing. I understand that at that time and currently she was the biggest and the most relevant, but why would you automatically hop to that when I could have been talking about Trina or Foxy or Lil’ Kim? I was talking about an over-representation of one facet of women and me having an issue with that. That’s really what it was all about.”
On her new EP : “It’s [The Boom Box Diaries Vol.1] been something that we’ve been working on for about two years. It’s a real cohesive project. I wanted it to be an experience. I didn’t want it to just be a bunch of tracks thrown together. It’s all very strategic in the way that it flows. I wanted to show people that artistry beyond the bars and being able to craft a nice freestyle. I wanted to really present myself to the world with this EP.”
