From Grind to latest release and eventually almost done album Chronicles of Ghetto Ballerina, Unwrap.online chats to rapper Ghetto Ballerina on her projects.
Unwrap.online (U): Let’s talk about the single Tai Kose, from the making to the meaning and to the final product. What space were you in when you wrote it?
Ghetto Ballerina (GB): Tai Kose is a song that I wrote about a year and a half ago, I don’t want to get into detail but an individual really pissed me off, I remember getting back to my crib and using that energy. Then Tai Kose was born. Tai Kose means until when or how come, I’m basically asking the masses until when are we going to be up in each other’s business with nothing good to say but rather to shame and just be mean. I understand it’s a cruel world guys, but honestly what I’m trying to say is invest in yourself because you will eventually invest in the surrounding environment as well, self-investment and empowerment so what everyone should go for. So the message clearly came out the way I intended it to in the song. The song is available on Donlu Africa.
U: Your other single Grind is also out, who has the reception from the public been? Is it what you expected or more?
GB: Yeah my first single Grind has been out for about 3 months more or less, I mean the feedback is always overwhelming especially when the masses show love, I’m just out here trying to inspire where I can. In terms of visuals, I’m super happy that it made its way to Trace Africa, I’m guessing they saw ahead of my time, coz I woke up to the news. The visuals still need to level up though, so y’all should hit up my YouTube @Ghettoballerina and look up for Grind.
U: Will we be hearing similar vibes on the album?
GB: As for my upcoming project I’m trying to make it a variety of emotions in one pack, I always felt that art. In this case, music is a platform to express yourself so the Chronicles of Ghetto Ballerina comes in different phases and colors. I can’t mention a release date, to be honest, but if it makes y’all happy I will still and regardless keep y’all entertained until we watch that unfold. But I can’t wait for y’all to hear.
U: When will it drop, please give us four facts about it?
GB: 1. It took me two years and more to eventually getting to the point I’m at with the album now.
2. Producers like Mambas Mansions, Kboz, Staxx Major helped and are helping me create COGB.
3. I’m super low key about features, but y’all will have to wait and find out.
4. Chronicles Of Ghetto Ballerina because simply of the fact that my life has been somewhat a beautiful whirlwind and some of the things I’ve survived has taught me a lot along my journey
