Who are some of your roll models when it comes to getting your foot in the music industry?

How long have you been doing music?

I’ve been doing music for 16 years. It’s been my outlet and oxygen since age 12.

How did you come up with the name of your first single?

The idea for my first single came about in the most authentic form, I am THE POET and poetry is my DNA so the single COMPOSITION BOOK is THE POET sharing her pain to the mass. Completely vulnerability displayed in that record.

Now after a long struggle of getting exposure, how do you feel?

I feel like I have more work to do, like THE POET hasn’t made a difference yet.

Word?!? So it can be said that you have a great performance when your doing a show?

Great performance is a understatement. All show dates will be posted via twitter: @Tayanathepoet via instagram: @voiceofthepoet

When is your next single dropping?

My next single Pyramid will be dropping July 04, 2018

What would be the name of your next single or album and why?

The name of my next album is going to be called Rebellion, because I’m going to completely rebel against the metaphorical side of THE POET.

How did you come up with that name for the single?

History is in the name Pyramid, and I wanted to do something totally different from my other music, just to expose a little bit of my consciousness rap abilities.

How long have you been in the music business?

I’ve been in the music business about 5yrs to date. I was more focused on learning the business aspect of the music.

Where can we find your music at?

You can find my music in all digital music stores such as, Tidal, Spotify, Apple Music, Rhadospy, and etc.

If you could do a collabo with any artist who would it be and why?

Most definitely would love to collaborate with Lauryn Hill, KRS-One, Rakim, Loaded Lux, Kendrick Lamar, J.cole, outside of me loving their music theory, all of these artist have one thing in common; Which is the ability to pore out intellect, spiritual, emotional, political, and physical consciousness in their music, and make it relatable.

What is your opinion when it comes to hip-hop and politics?

I really don’t have an opinion about politics in hip hop, as far as HipHop in general it shapes culture rather it leaves a Mark or Scar is clearly up to the Artist.
