VIP SUITE: Ebony Eyez

We all know how the hip-hop industry is a male dominated profession. Sure we’ve had our taste of the MC Lyte’s and Lil Kim’s in the business. We bobbed our head and swayed to their music because they were speaking from a female’s point of view. However, they weren’t from the Midwest so their swing wasn’t from our point of view all the way. The first time I heard In Your Face at the club the ladies in the crowd went nuts. It was just what the ladies in the Lou wanted to hear, her lyrics were hard and in your face. She could rap along side of males and hold her own. Since then she has split ways with Capitol Records and Track Boyz, let the record show that she is the only female rapper out of STL with a nationally released album, and now you can add label owner to her resume she owns Lady Lion Ent. We had to get an interview with Ms. Ebony Eyez who is set to release her new mix tape Nice Girlz Finish Last which is out and ready today.

Suite: we know you are currently residing in Atlanta, but what’s the first thing you do when you get back here.

Ebony: When I touch down in the Lou, I always go to the chinamen first and foremost. Then the studio, and after that family and friends

Suite: Your mix tape is out today so what can a buyer expect to hear different from you this time around?

Ebony: This time I am showing more of my lady lion if you will. Meaning it’s very aggressive, showing that as women we are definitely a force to be reckoned with, and this time around I mean business. First album I was more so just happy for the opportunity to share my music with the world. I was so naive to how the business works. I had people around me that didn’t have my best interest at heart. I had to learn that the hard way.

Suite: Whats your favorite song off the mix tape?

Ebony: It’s the last song Lame. I wrote it for my protégé Teiona. She’s a 12 year old rapper from KC and she is bonkers on the mic. That song resonates with me a lot because she is the future

Suite: If you could work with any other STL artist that you haven’t already, who would it be?

Ebony: I pretty much am open to do music with anybody as long as its good music

Suite: How would you sum up the message that Ebony Eyez is telling the people?

Ebony: I just want people to know that I am music. I live, eat, and breathe music 24/7. I just want to share the world through my eyez, and hopefully people can relate. I want to be the voice of women and what we represent. But more importantly I want to take the necessary steps to become successful and leave my mark

There you have it boys and girls. Ms. Eyez is allowing you a glimpse into her world through her music. Like most entertainers she’s had a taste of the good and the bad in the industry. Now with her being her own boss she can shoot her star as far as she pleases in the galaxy and we wish her nothing but success in the future. Nice Girlz Finish Last is out today so do a hometown sister a favor and grab you a copy or two or three.

TONIGHT: Kevin Hart & Tony Rock

Oh I can't wait for this one. They have some of my fav comedians on the bill for this show and once they see some of the folks in they lime green linen suits you already know the jokes will be 10x better.

On Saturday one promoter is calling Saturday "HIP HOPPERS HOLIDAY" When people say Hip Hop is Dead or Hip Hop has changed, do you agree? The Hip Hop that played through the hallways during our high school years (well not really on the loud speakers but through headphones) were PAC, TLC, Lauryn Hill, Dr. Dre, Outkast but some that came before us may have thought the tunes that kept us moving in the mid 90's wasn't REAL HIP HOP. Now Soulja Boy, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, and Lil Wayne fill up the iPods of almost everyone under 25.

The music has changed, but has it evolved or did all the talent go away with the 90's?
Is Hip Hop Dead or did you get too old to understand the new language?
Can the folks that listen to Mos Def, Black Spade, Lupe Fiasco, and Vandalyzm love Hip Hop as much as those that rock Webbie, Yo Gotti, Plies and Soulja Boy?
