Where I wanna be in 10 years?”I want to be known not only locally & in the states, but also to have shows all over the globe. I want to have an estate. My goals are to have clothing, my own alcohol, & just a billion-dollar brand”.
For years, we’ve been waiting for someone to bring that DC sound to hip hop. Someone who’s fresh & not afraid to use their voice to speak truth to power. Enter Big Gilly, she’s the real deal.When we first heard Big Gilly’s Music, we felt like we were listening to a DC rapper that we’d heard about, but never actually seen. We’ve been a fan ever since. Over the past few months, we witnessed the rapper transform into a performer. She’s taken risks, she’s changed her style, & she’s delivered an incredible performance.
“Go-Go music has been the heart of the DMV for a while. From Chuck Brown to Sugar Bear to EU to RE to the bouncebeat with TCB, BYB and JYB then TOB & Reaction. We have had a wave of great music. That’s the reason a lot of my songs are heavily Go-Go influenced. I want my bars and gogo to coexist and make the most beautiful harmonies. The world is going to know it’s DC all up & through me. Go-Go music became my heartbeat & hip hop is definitely the blood pumping into my veins”, she said.
Talking about her idol Nicki Minaj, she said, “The first time I heard Nicki, was on a Come up dvd. She was raw & had several metaphors. Her punchlines hit every time. She was the pretty girl, who could hold her own, in a male dominated industry. Her fans are unmatched. I want the same thing; for me to have fans that are that unparalleled & unwavering. Kim had the sexy female rapper down, Missy the creativity, Trina that down south sexual edge, Salt N Pepa had lyrics & sex appeal, Queen Latifah & MC Lyte lyrical queens, Foxy was hardcore & hit different her tone was different. I just wanna be on the Mount Rushmore of the greatest”
