Just Met Amanda Diva

So DDotOmen hits me up on the cellular device and is like "whatchu duin"? Me? Well I'm going the usual, which is listening to instrumentals and trying to decide which one to rap over. He's like "yo, lets go meet Amanda Diva". So immediately I'm down, because if any of you know who Amanda Diva is, you know she's pretty dope. So we go down to UMD to the something-or-other Cultural Center and shes there giving like a seminar-style Q&A speech about the state of hip-hop and how basically its up to the listeners to go find their own musi and stop being fed what is supposed to be hot. In the meantime she leaned on Nicki Minaj hard: "You can't just say 'pussy' a couple of times and all of a sudden you're Lil' Kim" -- WORD.

So, lean aside, she turns out to be a very down to earth and smart individual, on top of not being too bad on the eyes (light-skinned girl with natural hair that loves rap? sheeeeeeeet...). So afterwards, she's taking pics and whatnot with the people. She was handing out copies of her mixtape but she ran out by the time I could get one...

So my man DDotOmen approaches her for an interview. Ofcourse, she agrees. So while we're waiting for her fan's be chill out, we go holla at the young lady who was DJing the event. She was pretty dope too. I don't remember her name, but she was definatel spinning some hot stuff and she was very cool.

Interview time! So DDotOmen catches her outside, whips out the camera and starts the interview. They are discussing her current and next projects, some other people shes worked with, including and interesting story about Styles P (that I don't really remember). She also speaks about how she's interviewed Wale and Tabi recently and gives some back ground on her relationship with Wale. Apparently when they met, they both had jokes, only Wale's were more disrespectful (according to Amanda). But shortly after, he hit her up, they squashed it and started over. And now everything's kosher

Soon after, DDotOmen brought up some beef-type situation that went on between Amanda and Charles Hamilton. She didn't really speak much on that more than to say that (paraphrase) "if you're cool with someone and they do something that you perceive as being sideways, then we aren't cool anymore". At that point, I said "shout out to friends" even though clearly I was nowhere in this interview, lol. She started acting out some sort of "Whodini" montage (shouts out to DJ Soundwave) and I was forced to hit her with the infamous G.O.B. "Be Cool"... hilarious.

All in all, she's awesome and I look forward to hollering at her soon. Hit her on twitter: and check out the actual live interview over at ...BONG!
