Since RAtheMC's first interview with TrackHustle.com in 2009 she has been featured on BET, MTV and VH1. At this point its only right that she release a project named Victory Lap. Check out our recent interview below for the latest on her career and we've also included a link to Victory Lap here for your listening enjoyment.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm, RAtheMC (one word) rapper/singer from Largo, MD. I'm also an artist under Studio 43.
How would you describe the music scene in your area?
Amazing. I love the D.C music scene because there's such a variety of genre's in such a small area.
Who are some of your hometown hero's from the area?
Len Bias, Chuck Brown, Martin Lawrence, Tabi Bonney
What equipment do you use to create your music?
I often play and create with my band "Shades of Green" which consist of drums, acoustic guitar, keyboard, and bass. When I work with AB (AB the Producer) all I need is a mic, he handles the rest. LOL
What's the hardest part of being a rapper?
Getting people to listen. We're in an era now where everyone is a rapper, and a lot of them are actually good. The hardest part is setting yourself apart from everyone else.
Selling tons of records and inspiring the world through song.
Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Tell us about your most recent release.
My latest released project is titled "Victory Lap" (Powered by Studio 43 & AllHipHop-Radio) dropped on 1-11-11 and was received pretty well. This project in particular was really fun for me because I got a chance to really go in as a lyricist and it also allowed me the chance to speak on a few topics I've wanted to address for a while. It is still available for download (free) on www.studio43.com
What projects are you currently working on?
I'm currently working on a my next LP as well as another project that will drop prior to that. (It's a secret!) LOL
What is your ultimate goal with making music?
To have made an impact. My ultimate goal is to make people feel the way I felt when I listened to Biggie in '98, Jay in '96, Fugees in '95, or Kanye in 2004. I want to make people feel something when they listen to my music and retain that feeling every time they hear it for years to come.
