Home Na'Tee 3D Na’Tee: ‘My goal is to make these rappers quit being afraid...


3D Na’Tee talks about how she plans to change the game, her goal in hip hop, who she would like to work with and more with XXL Magazine. Read a few highlights from the interview below:

On How She’s going to change the game:

I’m going to change the game simply because in 2012, I cant name any rapper who possesses the ability to get on a track and be completely unfiltered yet, at the same still be lyrically nice. Im witty, entertaining, humorous at times, but most importantly, Im always passionate. Now days, rappers seem like they’ve all been manufactured by the same lame distributors. They don’t have a passion for it anymore. The radio stations sound like they’re playing one long song. I’ve been told time and time again that I have a quality that makes me relatable. Im not just another female rapper talking about how good her p**y is and how she can take a man’s money. Its obvious that when I talk about some of my life’s experiences, like my parent’s drug addictions, my father’s suicide, the years I was selling drugs and getting arrested, I really mean it. You can tell Im not just a female rapper saying these things so I can get respect or fit in with the boys. Yet, Im not lesbian. Im feminine as can be. I carry myself like a lady. It just so happens that my bars be compared to the boys lyrically. So Im going to change the way that people view female artist. Sh*t im going to change the way that they view artist period. We all aren’t here just to pop bottles, make it rain, and get a chain.

On who she would Like to Work With:

I’d love to work with Nas, Jay Z, Lauryn Hill, or Beyonce. Biggie was my favorite rapper period so I would of loved to collaborate with him. I mean, I’d work with anybody that’s hot though.

On her goal in hip-hop is:

I have a few goals that I’d like to reach as far as hip hop is concerned. My goal is to make these rappers quit being afraid of who they are. I want to prove to the industry that females artist’s only way into the game isn’t just sucking off CEO’s to get the invaluable ‘first lady’ title. Im much more valuable than that. My goal is to bring back that feeling you got when your favorite artist was dropping an album. That feeling that made yo play that album constantly like it was the soundtrack to your life. Besides that, Im also starting an organization to give back to the area of New Orleans where I grew up. Like I said before, I use to hustle in those same streets, so I owe it to them to give back. Im not nearly as paid as I would like to be but even at this state in my career, I’ve organized an event along with a few great humanitarians from my city’s surrounding areaslike Stephanie Weatherstrand and Michelle Willcox,where I’ll have some of the Saints players come Uptown, give out free food, drinks, and talk to the kids. I mean, of course I still talk that street sh*t because I cant change that. That is apart of who I am. That’s what I related to as a kid, so hopefully some kid will relate to me yet see how I’m doing better through my actions.
