IAA:  What city and state are you from?

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.

IAA:  How can fans access your music and contact you?

MSCHYCITY:  All my fans can access my music at:

Brandy has revealed the biggest lesson she’s learned from love so far. In an interview with Necolebitchie.com, the “Wildest Dreams” singer said, “I think love is a beautiful thing. I don’t regret any of my experiences with love but I will say that one of my biggest lessons has been patience. You have to be patient with love. If you are committed, you have to hang in there through the rough times as well as through the good times. That’s all a part of your growth with love. So many of us are quick to leave when it’s bad or say, ‘I can’t take it anymore’ or ‘I don’t want to be with you’ and that kind of thing.”

  • She continued, “You have to give someone a chance. You have to compromise and be understanding. If you are really in it, be in it and go forward. You have to really treat this person like they are a part of your family. I finally found the person that I want to stick with it with. Whatever the circumstance, I want to try to work through it.”


She also revealed what initially attracted to her to her boyfriend Ryan Press. She said, “[Ryan] was really quiet so that made me more interested in what was going on in his mind. Of course, right away, I was attracted to him, I just couldn’t figure him out, and he was challenging and mysterious. Then when I really got a chance to get to know him, I realized that we shared a lot of the same things in common like we were both very family oriented, he loves his mom which is a great thing and he had a lot of respect for me and he really loves music as well.”

She added, “We just connected, and I started feeling like I could talk to him about everything, I started to like who I was around him, I felt very beautiful around him, very sexy. When I introduced him to my daughter when I felt the time was right, I mean she just feel head over heels for him. My family loved him. My mom didn’t have one problem. My mom usually looks for something to be wrong just in case you got something up your sleeve, nobody is going to mess with her baby type thing. She didn’t have any of that. My brother ….My cousin who I am really close too, they are best friends now. It’s just weird how everybody, and me as well, we’ve all just kind of embraced him and he’s just a part of the family now.”

  • Brandy’s Two Eleven is in stores now.

IAA:  What city and state are you from?

SK THE GREATEST:  I’m originally from Boston, MA, born and raised.  Currently I reside in Austin, TX, “The Live Music Capitol of the World.”

IAA:  What is your music background?

SK THE GREATEST:  Music and art were a part of my grade school curriculum. Because of these classes, I got to learn different brass instruments, along with piano and drums. In addition to that I was raised in a church going family that often encouraged me to play at Sunday morning service. My Grandmother is a prominent Gospel singer. Both of my parents are avid music listeners, and my uncle was a Hip-Hop DJ. So I was around music pretty much all the time.

IAA:  What inspired you to pursue music?

SK THE GREATEST:  It’s my calling. We’re all blessed with certain talents and abilities.  Mine’s just happens to be music. Although I accept that now, I was very reluctant in my younger years. But once I started to understand that this is my gift, I was able to humble myself and things just started to fall into place.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

SK THE GREATEST:  My songs are about life and experience, everything we go through as people. The message is just a culmination of human existence. But it really depends on the artist I’m working with. As a producer, it’s my job to help the artist take that message to their audience in a way that is engaging on a spiritual level. It’s all an elaborate effort to communicate a feeling or create a certain vibe.

IAA:  Do you write your own music?

SK THE GREATEST:  Yes. Being a producer it’s very important to have an understanding of song structure, and the overall flow of the music. It’s not necessarily a linear thing. Good music comes from inspiration, and inspiration can come from many different places. It’s like a sonic depiction of a feeling or an emotion. This is why sound is so important to film and television.  Because it enhances the overall viewing experience. Music has the power to connect with a person’s spirit.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

SK THE GREATEST:  There are so many artists and producers who have influenced my sound in some way, shape or form. To start I’d have to say Quincy Jones, Barry White, Marvin Gaye, Marley Marl, The Bomb Squad, Gang Starr, The Roots, Wu-Tang, Mary J. Blige, Organized Noize, Hi-Tek, Madlib, Mannie Fresh, the list goes on and on.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

SK THE GREATEST:  I would say that my music sounds like Dr. Dre and DJ Premier’s quirky little nephew, who grew up in Atlanta listening to A Tribe Called Quest and idolizing J-Dilla.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

SK THE GREATEST:  I’m a cross genre Hip-Hop producer. Musically, I’m very explorative and experimental. Every time I sit down to make music, I’m trying to approach it from a different angle. Also, I take it as a personal challenge to do something different. I think this approach has a way of keeping things fresh and inspiring.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

SK THE GREATEST:  I’m currently building on my own production company called GMGOmusic, as well as a full length compilation album that will be self produced.  We have a fully customized website on the way, along with a few side projects with other artists and producers.

IAA:   What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

SK THE GREATEST:  In 10 years, I’ll still be a producer.  Only then I will have established myself in the music business, and be in the position to provide opportunities for upcoming artists to reach their potential. I see myself being a mentor, talent scout, and entrepreneur. My career goal is to create music that is timeless, and build a legacy that can be passed down to the next generation.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?

SK THE GREATEST:  You can check out my music on Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Facebook and Reverbnation. Coming up soon you can check out my work at GMGOmusic.com.  Also you can always reach out to me via email at gmgomusic@gmail.com & info@gmgomusic.com.

Keyshia Cole has responded to Gucci Mane‘s claims that he and Diddy both slept with her. The rapper made the accusations on a diss record towards Young Jeezy— Keyshia’s ex. When someone on Twitter wrote that Gucci put Keyshia’s business out in the street, she fired back, “That ain’t my business!! he’s lying! its all G tho.”

She then added, “Putting all ya trust in some of these ‘Hood Rappers’.. How u gone be a G, and u spreading lies, To sell mix tapes! Where ya talent at?? Dude ain’t have 2 lie tho! could’ve kept me out of it.”

  • She then ended with, “I will continue 2 build what I’m working so hard accomplish! I’m married with a child, and don’t have no place in that none sense!


In other news, Keyshia revealed that she and her husband Daniel Gibson went to marriage counseling. Daniel told Essence.com, “At first, I didn’t believe in it. I’m a strong Christian, so I believed that, like, you go to God and you fix it and you pray about it, but sometimes you do need a different opinion.”

  • Keyshia then added, “Once I get upset, there’s kind of no turning back. He knows that that’s not fair, and I know that’s not fair. Sometimes I really get caught up in my emotions and I’m really good at it. So, like our psychiatrist says, I have to try to do ‘the unnatural thing.’ So, I’m trying.”
