Hi Raykatanna! How are you?
I’m blessed and highly favored how about yourself?
Where are you from?
Newark, New Jersey.
What is your greatest inspiration for your music?
Lil Wayne and My Mom. Lil Wayne because he’s like the best person I’ve ever heard rap the shit he used to spit was unfathomable. My Mom because she was my first real hater. She didn’t support my music career until this year 2020. I thank her for that because if I wasn’t ready for criticism from my mom then I’d have no shot in the industry so she really built the thick skin for me.
What are 3 words that describe your music?
Catchy, Memorable, Relatable.
What is the hardest subject you’ve ever written about?
Love, I’ve never had a girlfriend before in my entire life. I’ve also never been in love with someone before. But I’m a really good writer and poet. It may take a while but once my mind is locked in then I can get it done.
What are the challenges of being an artist?
Staying focused. There’s so many distractions, managing your money, understanding how to not get too deep into the limelight so you don’t get addicted to anything. Balancing the artist from the person. When you reach a certain point, everyone is expecting you to be the artist all the time forgetting that we are human just like everyone else.
Are you planning on releasing new music soon?
New single dropping October 30th.
