Nitty Scott, MC has been on her grind. The Michigan-born, Florida-raised rapper moved to Brooklyn at 17 years old, where she pursued a career in hip-hop and wanted to make a name herself. Within the past few years, Nitty’s buzz has grown tremendously from ill songs like "Auntie Maria's Crib" and it’s only going to get bigger.

Nitty, who is coming off 2012’s The Boombox Diaries, Vol 1, recently released her independent album The Art Of Chill. The LP has been in the works since 2013 and boasts appearances from Ab-Soul and Rapper Big Pooh. With gaining strong support from her fans, she’s gearing to hit the road for her national tour featuring Chicago’s own Alex Wiley starting on June 8.

Just a few days before her album release date in May, we chopped it up with the Rap Game Little Buddha about her progression as an artist, influences, how she's content with being a force in the indie world and more. “I’m the girl within this rap shit that’s gonna give you that chill!” she boasts. “You gonna get that zen from me. You are gonna get a different perspective.” Vibe out with Nitty Scott, MC in The Come Up.—Eric Diep
