Dyamond Doll: Miami Heat
Tell me your whole inception into music — When did you first become interested in it? And, how did it all begin for Dyamond Doll?
I started writing poems, talent shows at school, then 17 started recording with other teen artists. Doing features, (made me) realize…(and) talent shows.
Now you’re from Miami, Florida, correct? So growing up in ‘The Magic City,’ who all did / do you consider to be your strongest influences?
Nicki Minaj – her delivery, her uniqueness – her drive…left everything to move to Atlanta…Tupac rapped with so much stench, Lil Wayne – liked music, stayed in school – Hot Boy$.
What particular string of events actually led to your current signing with Dark Boys Records? And why exactly an indie over a major label venture?
Meeting the CEO, (my) music was already known by Joe, who took (me) under his wing and gave (me) more faith into the industry to pursue her career.
Your just unleashed new single/video is entitled “Sugar Daddy,” and it features JackBoy — Tell me about this particular composition; how did it come to fruition?
My people already had connections with JackBoy’s team, and I wanted (to) do something different – a little sexy – since he’s a hardcore rapper. I wanted to switch it up.
Of course “Sugar Daddy” comes courtesy of your brand new Dyamond In The Rough EP — Although pretty self-explanatory, still tell me, conceptually, what that title represents both to and for you?
Been through things in life, but I always come out on top. An actual diamond – I shine – but I’ve been through the rough stages. I’m a fighter; I can overcome anything, hence the name of my first EP.
Unique…difference (is) not trying to be anyone else – most authentic self – come strong, sexy and not too aggressive.
Switching gears here, what exactly do you want people to get from your music?
Change…vibes into an uplifting, making women feel strong and that they can be free and themselves.
If you could collaborate with any one artist, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Tupac – lived free in his music, raw rap about life – didn’t live up to his potential…and Nicki Minaj.
If you could play any venue in the world, which one would you choose and why?
Wherever The Super Bowl would be held; the Super Bowl dome.
In terms of longevity, what do you feel it is that will continue to sustain you in this grueling industry?
Staying dedicated and focused and grind, and make a staple for my [Miami] city.
To date, what has been your biggest career moment(s), at least thus far anyway?
When I dropped “D-WADE” featuring Trina; the impact I wasn’t expecting to have with this song. Dwyane was so supportive of me and my music, even after the song was released. Then Trina on the track was just perfect.
Looking ahead, say five or maybe even ten years from now, where do you see yourself?
On the charts, doing single after single, making more music.
