Interview By: Geneva Relf


Geneva: Dani B. thanks so much for agreeing to this interview! How are you doing today?

Dani B: I'm doing great in the bay chilling with my family just got a new beat from my producer so I'm straight!

Geneva: Now you have been rapping since you were 13 years old. What was it about rap that caught your attention?


Dani B: Rap music doesn't have any limits it touches every subject: Politics, Family, The Ghetto, The Burbs, Relationships etc etc. Since I grew up listening to rap music it was the only way I knew how to express myself when I was going through something and it also got me through a lot.


Geneva: Now for those who don't know who Dani B. is can you please introduce yourself?
Dani B: YO YO YO YO its Dani B from Oakland, CA lol nah but I'm 22 from Oakland, CA I use to be in the girl group Realody and now I'm solo doing my thing working on my 1st solo mixtape been writing since I was kid even though I write I'm also a fan of ALL genres of music and also I'm a songwriter.



Geneva: You have come a long way, what was the biggest lesson you have learned?


Dani B: Don't trust everyone who says they want to help you, and this industry is a "hurry up and wait" industry so have patience!



Geneva: Now what sets Dani B. apart from other  female rappers?



Dani B: I don't rap about sex I just can't do it. I have a little brother who looks up to me and a mother who raised me with some sense I DON'T want to be looked at as a sex symbol I wanna be the "girl next door meets the bad bish down the street."



Geneva: Now you have been very busy, What upcoming projects can we expect from you?


Dani B: I'm working on my mixtape, its taking longer than expected because I'm a perfectionist I'd rather have listeners wait for something great than be disappointed but its coming very soon!! Also brushing up on my performance so check my twitter for shows.



Geneva: If you could sum up yourself in one phrase what would it be and why?



Dani B: Determined....Whatever I put my mind to I accomplish enough said!



Geneva: You were once in a group, now being a solo artist what changes did you have to make?



Dani B: I had to get use to working on complete songs by myself, running sessions by myself and performing by myself which made me a much better artist I've grown so much since then its crazy


Geneva: Who do you inspire to work with music wise, What future collaborations can we expect?



Dani B: Of course I would love to work with the big names but I really would like to work with some very talented Bay Area artist like London, J Mayers and Netta Brielle and a VERY talented brother from Compton by the name of Kendrick Lamar so hopefully those are some future collabs!


Geneva: What advice would you give to upcoming rapper?



Dani B: Perfect your craft, study the best and be better than them but always remember to be yourself while doing it.




Geneva: "Closer" is an amazing song what was your inspiration behind making that?


Dani B: The beat was the inspiration for that song (produced by Klash) I closed my eyes and listened to it and I saw a video in my head and I just wrote the storyline. 


Geneva: "Addicted" is another hot song, How do you know when a track is hit for you?


Dani B: Thank you! I know the song is a hit when I can envision the video in my head and when I'm completely comfortable letting others hear it because you wont hear it if I don't love it!


Geneva: Where do you see yourself music wise say ten years from now?



Dani B: Owning my own label with signed successful artist, and me still making good music.



Geneva: What is the biggest hurdle for female rappers?
