Diamond’s Five Favorite Female Rappers
I love her style. I’m very artsy and I haven’t had a chance to show that to the world, visually, how I dream or how I view myself. I’m not the type that’s going to do the same old videos. I’m always trying to be creative. She breaks all the barriers with that.
I can relate to them. I can see I can do a duo with another female rapper because I came from a group with another female rapper. The things from girl power to just turning up and mobbing.
I love her. She’s been a mentor on two occasions. She’s just so amazing, from having her own production, TV show, and [being] a writer to having her own talk show. That’s who I want to be one day. Being in Set It Off… I love everything about her.
She broke the barrier of sexiness. She shows that a rapper can be overly sexy. I feel like me becoming more of a woman and my Puerto Rican, side we’re very sexual, and not even sexual but just freaky. Like, when I hug my sister, I might slap her on the butt. [Laughs] Just because you’re a rapper don’t mean you can’t be sexy. So at times I feel like I’m a damn model, and one day I might put my heels on and might tell my mind I’m a model, [and] fuck rapping. [Laughs] Just from her coming on and showing she’s hardcore and can hang with the dudes and be on the block. I come from that, because of the whole Crime Mob era, and her fashion sense. Just everything about her, I love the way she thinks. It’s positive. She’s always been a great mentor to me.
