3375 How did you come up with the name Ms. Proper?
MSPROPER Honestly it just came to me one day. I feel Ms Proper represents not only the image I tend to convey to my artist but the person I am. People always say I speak "proper".
3375 When did you first fall in love with hiphop and what made you decide to give it a go?
MSPROPER I would have to say I fell in love with Hip Hop as a child when my mother taught me "La Di Da Di"by Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh. I knew in middle school I wanted to be in the industry but I didnt actually pursue a career as an artist until about 2005.
3375 Being a female rapper do you feel like you have to prove yourself twice as hard . What drives you?
MSPROPER I honestly think other people focus on the fact that I am a female rapper more than I do. I just want to be respected as an overall talented artist. I'm driven by life. Just like other people I have a story and I want to share it with the world to inspire others.
3375 Is there a main topic you talk about in your songs or do you discuss everything?
MSPROPER Nothing is exempt from my lyrics. If I want to talk about it I do. Music is the one place I can truly be free and say what I want without judgment.
3375 What does being creative mean to you?
MSPROPER Being an individual and staying true to what is you.
3375 What differentiates you from other artist?
MSPROPER A lot of people claim they want the success of being a musician but they don't really want to put in the work. My team and I truly grind it's not just a morning tweet.
3375 You have had a number of performances .which one would you say has been the best and why
MSPROPER I'm going to say when I performed on BET's 106 & Park because that has been my largest
performance to date. I'm proud of myself and my team for what we accomplished that day.
3375 Is there anything your fans will be surprised to know about you.
MSPROPER I'm a nerd haha. When I say "Hip Hop made me cool" it really is a true statement. However, my thirst for knowledge works in my favor.
