Vikki V: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Work.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a culmination of events and experiences in my life. I never strive to be anything more than a decent, normal person living a life.

Why do you do what you do?

I’ve always had a passion for music and anything creative. It comes so naturally to me so to not be doing it wouldn’t make sense.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I’ve felt that “feeling” this was for me since a very early age. I am currently a rapper though because I left an indie band I played bass in for a situation where my success didn’t fall into the hands of others.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

It is hard to be a blonde white female in this genre and be taken seriously. A lot of white rappers break as jokes so people just assume I made joke songs or I am a façade of black culture and I am not. Those who don’t write me off immediately and give me that initial time to prove myself are the ones who help the most. All I need is that chance.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I’m not particularly inspired by anyone. My drive is a mixture of how my father raised me and my constant drive to reach my goals. I have always been a workaholic so to grind every day isn’t so much a struggle as the norm and I don’t need motivation or inspiration to get up and do it.

 

If I have inspired anyone directly, they haven’t told me.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I used to fall for the pay-to-play mentality that everything costs money and that’s the way things are. It’s not the way things are. Know your worth and stop lining other people’s pockets. Sometimes you run into situations that really are worth the money, but more times than not it’s someone profiting off of selling dreams.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I am currently promoting my album, ATLAS

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Just do you. One person’s way may not be yours so don’t follow a mold just because it maybe worked for someone else. Do the work. Do your research and homework and put the time in to find your path.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Don’t let anyone with bad eyebrows tell you shit about life.
