Meet new Sisterhood of Hip Hop cast member and community activist Lee Mazin

leemazincorrectsize-2Philly representer and rapper/singer/songwriter/actress/model Lee Mazin (@leemazin), is an exciting new addition to season 3 of Sisterhood of Hip Hop which airs on Tuesdays 9 pm ET/8 Cent/6 PT on Oxygen. Mazin comes on board after having accomplished quite a bit on her own, touring with major acts like Meek Mill, MC Lyte, Power 99’s Peace on the Streets, SXSW and her own self financed tour. Mazin is one of two rookies this season, joined by powerhouse Audra The Rapper.

An independent artist, Lee Mazin has performed alongside an array of mainstream performers such as T.I, Young Jeezy, DMX, Mac Miller, Meek Mill, French Montana, K Michelle, MC Lyte and more. Mazin shows her dedication to her community via her “PhilLEE Weekend” in her hometown of Philadelphia held yearly.

Mazin’s entry onto the Sisterhood of Hip Hop scene showcased some ‘murphy’s law’ type *ish as she faces the fact that she’s been robbed and is missing the hard drives containing her mixtape project “No Love Lost 2”:

What brought you to the entertainment industry, music specifically?

I was always good with words and I grew up loving music. I was recorded freestyling one day and here I am 5 years later.

Hailing from Philly, how did the impact of the “Philly sound” on music overall shape you as an artist and songwriter?

Eve was one of my favorite female rappers growing up, State Property was one of the hottest groups when I was a child so the sound was already embezzled in me before I was even rhyming. When I was in middle school and high school the battle rap scene and DVD scene was huge in Philly. We have a distinctive flow. All those things came naturally once I started doing music.

For years we’ve watched you grow musically and you’ve shared stages with numerous successful artists. What’s been the most eye-opening part of touring for you?

Just the love from fans and even the people who may not have heard of you before, to see them loving your sound and your stage presence, just makes you never want to leave the stage!

What do you feel was the biggest challenge you’ve overcome thus far in your career?

Staying consistent as an independent artist with no team behind me. It’s literally just been my manager and I. There are some that, come here and there, but just trying to stay leveled through everything, and really doing it from the muscle, just 2 females going against all odds.

Your latest project “Vibes” dropped on July 11, right before the premiere of Season 3 of Sisterhood of Hip Hop, were you feeling any additional pressure for the release now that the world will have greater access to you via television?

Of course, but I work better under pressure!

The single Don’t Care you released recently is a full service joint sonically and lyrically, it also seems a bit personal. How do you as a writer, manage to harness life and translate that into a musical image?

I just tell it how it is! I give you the real Lee, it’s a way for me to express my feelings and also give people something to relate to because there’s always someone feeling relative to what your feeling.

What’s the most exciting about being the artist Lee Mazin at this moment?

I’m just excited for what’s ahead. I love being myself! So almost everything is exciting, you just never know what’s bound to happen! The most exciting thing though is how many people actually look up to me! Makes me feel good about life!

Talk to us about your #Phillee movement and your participation within your community?

PhilLEE weekend is something my manager and I came up with 2 years ago! It is a fun filled weekend bringing my community together in a positive way! This year will be our 3rd year doing it! We have a celebrity basketball tournament, meet and greets, a youth motivational tour, and a free cookout/concert where we have all the hottest local acts, and some celebrity guests. The whole weekend is for ALL ages. When I was growing up I couldn’t do fun activities with my role model, let alone meet them. The youth looks up to us and I do my best to set a good example for them and help out as much as I can.

What’s been your craziest “Where they do that at moment?!” thus far in your professional career?

I recently performed at the Essence Fest in New Orleans and we went to one of the clubs afterwards, and the people there actually danced with themselves in the mirror. There’s one whole side of the club that’s filled with mirrors, and literally 80% of the people in the club were facing that direction dancing in the mirror. It was different from where I’m from, and how we party, but it was dope and interesting, I actually caught myself dancing in the mirror!

Keep up with all things Lee Mazin
