We did an interview with the beautiful¬†Kellee Maize! Kellee Maize is a very talented girl from Pittsburgh who sings/raps over some Scottie B and King Tutt bmore beats! We did a little interview to introduce this girl to you! She also made a special page ¬†where we can listen and download the tracks for free! kelleemaize.com/baltimoreclub
On the photo we see a good looking blond girl, in the music we hear some mix between Lady gaga, MIA and Uffy on some Baltimore club music. Who¬†exactly¬†is Kellee Maize?
That is quite a compliment. Thanks! I am an entrepreneur, mystic, activist, dancer, performer and obviously a rapper/singer/songwriter/poet. 🙂 I am very into empowering females…..and men while in this process. I have a whole hard core world view about why it is important to empower women but I won’t get all crazy now, and it is hard to explain. (My first album would help a little 🙂
I am also very into quantum physics, creating your reality, questioning authority and staying positive despite what you find during the questioning. It’s hard but worth the try. I think we have a powerful force inside of each of us that can help transform the planet. The outside world reflects what is inside so we all have a responsibility to tune into the right frequency and add our positivity to the world as best we can. My music is the best vehicle I have found to do so and i feel like i was put here to do this 🙂 I feel like everyone has a very important gift to offer the world…and I think this is my purpose.
That line specifically means I work with Unruly but I also mean that despite being around a lot of chaos, I am attempting to keep my mind clear, a vital part of transforming yourself so you can really be helpful….and the HARDEST THING for me to do! (not that unruly records is chaos but, the meaning of the word unruly…). I try to meditate as much as possible because my mind is always going. 🙂 It gets easier everyday but, we are still human.
My connection to Unruly came through my company, Nakturnal. We have been helping with some events in Baltimore for the last few years, not many recently however. We helped get some sponsorship for the first My Crew Be Unruly (AMAZING PARTY!!) and I attended to help carry out the sponsorship. I met Shawn that night and gave him my first album. A month later I hit him up to see if he checked it out. He said he really wanted to help me but didn’t work with too many hip hop producers, since Age of Feminine doesn’t have any club or electronic beats. I said I wanted to rhyme over some bmore club. He asked why I didn’t tell him that sooner and the rest is history. I came to Bmore several times to build with Scottie and Tutt. I told them about all my crazy theories and they still gave me the music. I really love those guys! They let me use any tracks I wanted. Tutt and I plan to work on some new tracks soon.
You’re sharing the music for free? New business model?
Yes, that is the plan. I am just excited to let people hear the message and the music. I hope it makes people think, feel hopeful in their power and I wanna make people dance….very important. But, I want to do this full time so I have to create a revenue stream. I love performing, traveling and writing so I have been drawing from my own experience creating my company and working with a lot of close friends to formalize a plan to make it crack. We hope when people get it for free they like it and wanna support me in the future. I hope its a model that works quickly so I can eventually help other artists. I have always wanted Nak to have a label, that is an ultimate goal but I wanna do it like Ani and make music while I am helping other conscious artists.
