Interview with Lady P

Question: How would you describe your music?

Lady P: Versatile! I am a female rapper & singer and I've been singing for over 15 years and rapping for about 5 years. I've sung and performed many genres of music including ballads, pop, R&B, broadway and I've even been a singer in a rock band. My music portrays this versatility as my 8 already released tracks are different to one another so there is something for everyone ! My favourite genre I like to sing are R&B songs and I like trap/grime beats for rapping. I normally speak about female power and independence when I rap and delivery, multi-syllable rhymes, flow and double entendres are essential components to my music when rapping.

Question: Can you tell us about No One Like Me?

Lady P: My latest single 'No One Like Me' is about how I can cater for a man or anyone I choose, I speak about how I am different to everyone else because of my work ethic, drive and versatility. I portray confidence, independence and hustle on this track and these traits allow me to enjoy living a lavish lifestyle enabling me to also cater for a man materialistically if I wanted to.

Question: What inspired the single?

Lady P: Most of my music is inspired by the beat itself, the topic is secondary to the beat. When I heard this track I instantly thought it was powerful, it's something that you can groove to and is also playful at the same time so this song is based on 2 key personas of mine.

Question: Is there a particular message you hope listeners take from your music?

Lady P: On this track in particular, I want my listeners to know, the more you work hard the more you will prosper regardless of success or failure. Success gives me material wealth and my divalicious lifestyle but failure gives me life lessons, endurance and patience which gives me qualities that make me the person I am today.

Question: Do you prefer performing live or recording?

Lady P: Performing live as I can connect with the audience better in person!

Question: Which is your favourite song to perform live and why?

Lady P: The first single I ever released "I Get Crazy" as I perform it with a call and response section at the beginning which is amazing to hear in large crowds, also because I perform this track with a routine and dancer who is a long term friend of mine and we bounce off each other so the energy on stage is great!

Question: If you could have anyone, in the world, attend a show, who would it be?

Lady P: Eminem as he is one of my inspirations and is an amazing performer so I would love and appreciate his feedback on the show!

Question: What motivates you most when writing music?

Lady P: I never leave a song incomplete, usually it takes me weeks to find a beat I like because I'm picky with them. When I finally find it, I start writing as there is no point spending time looking for something that isn't going to make it to release, that would be wasteful and to me, time is money.

Question: Which music/artists are you currently listening to?

Lady P: I normally listen to American artists, currently I'm listening to J.I, Mulatto & casanova, I also love my British rappers Stefflon Don, Stormzy & aitch. In Australia I enjoy Rops 1, One Four & Chillin It.

Question: What or who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?

Lady P: Musical inspirations include Eminem, Busta Rhymes & Nicki Minaj. My family, friends and my music team also gives me inspiration.

Question: If you could collaborate with another artist, who would it be?

Lady P: Alex Jones, he's been off the radar this year but he is hands down one of my favorite Australian Rappers.

Question: How did it feel to hear your song played all over the airwaves?

Lady P: Amazed, grateful and proud!

Question: What is the biggest challenge you have faced along the way to your musical success?

Lady P: When I started my musical journey as Lady P 8 months ago, the biggest challenge I faced was branding myself, at the beginning I was heavily influenced by American Rap and that was very evident in my accent, being an Australian rapper I not only had to learn about what I need to know/do as an upcoming rapper, but I had to learn about the Australian music scene and try and change my accent all at the same time. I felt like I didn't know who I was because for 5 years I was rapping in an American accent, it was very hard for me to change. I used to believe that you need to know exactly who you are before you come out and show yourself to the world, but now I've realised music pushes you to be the person you need to be. You need to have the courage to take the first steps into following your dream, struggle so you can compromise, lose so you can learn lessons and challenge yourself so you can grow as an artist. I'm glad life took me this way as I wouldn't be the artist I am today without it.

Question: What's a typical day like?

Lady P: Busy! Haha, I work the majority of the time 7 days a week. I am fortunate enough to be able to do music full time. My work day consists of recording and reviewing my analytics on my music platforms every morning, I limit time on social media so I aim to be on replying to messages and comments 4 times a day - 9am, 12pm, 5pm & 10pm. If I need to write music I am the most productive in the morning. Afternoons would normally be anything and everything else you could think of from music video planning, photoshoots, studio sessions, performance rehearsals, reviewing and corresponding to any videos or necessary events.

Question: What has been your favourite part of becoming a music artist?

Lady P: Learning about who I am and planning what I have in mind for future - knowing this today excites me. Being able to do my musical passion and creating memories with family and friends and all those involved.

Question: What's next, for you?

Lady P: ALBUM RELEASE, yay scheduled in for the 27th of November! After that I'd like to enjoy my summer as I believe I am long overdue for a break! Next year will bring volume 2 of the 'Versatility' album and hopefully it won' t take too long! (:
