HIPHOP / RNB Issue 59 / 2014 IEW V R TE N I 25 7 LADY LESHURR We caught up with the female MC making some noise on the underground; the chick on the scene with plenty of sexy, playful swagger, backed up with bars upon bars for her growing fan base on the street. Natasha | I FOLLOW YOU ON TWITTER AND YOU ARE ALWAYS RECEPTIVE TO YOUR FANS-THAT IS A GREAT LOOK! I really do try and do that because I think the followers deserve it. The key is to keep in contact with your supporters. Personally I feel that just one tweet to them can make their day, so why not. If they have taken the time to download your music, buy your stuff and support you then why not just say thank you - it's a good look. YOU HAVE YOUR OWN LABEL GUTTERSTRUT. WERE YOU ALWAYS INTENT ON TAKING CARE OF THE BUSINESS SIDE OF MUSIC YOURSELF? Yes definitely. Since a young age I have been business minded. I have always known how to advertise myself and just get things done. It makes me feel more grounded as well; setting up my label and releasing music independently. When I get to where I want to be then I can take on artists and help them to release their music as well. I really love helping people , so it will be something that I will want to do. SO THERE IS NO ONE ELSE ON THE LABEL? No, at the moment it is just me because I want to work on myself and get my music out there, but there will be an EP by Paigey Cakey that will be released from my label. OH YES, YOU AND PAIGEY ARE AS THICK AS THIEVES! Well we are just cool now. I have Birmingham scene, Birmingham is in my blood. There are so many people from Birmingham who are doing really well and so every time I do an interview I always try and mention people that are active in Birmingham. That is the only thing that I can do right now that will help them, because I am not really in a position myself to push them. I am in an okay place, but I still have so much to do right now. He taught me and inspired me when I was coming up. I ACTUALLY SPOKE TO YOU BACK IN THE DAY WHEN YOU WERE IN THE FILM '1DAY'. ARE YOU GOING TO BE DOING ANYMORE ACTING? Oh yes, definitely. I will get into that more now that I have made a bit of a name for myself so I can start to venture out. In fact, my last music video I put out I was acting in and all the rest of the videos I will put " When I get to where I want to be then I can take on artists and help them to release their music as well - I really love helping people " helped her to get to where she needs to be and now she is moved on to work with Chipmunk's peopleshe's in a good position. I know that I can die knowing that I have helped other people and I like that. SO IN TERMS OF HELPING OTHER ARTISTS, YOU ARE GOING TO BE REPPING BIRMINGHAM NO DOUBT! I definitely want to help to push the NAME DROP? C4, I always mention him because he has been doing his thing for so long and I think he is so talented (he can sing as well) he is amazing. His brother Preditah who is doing his thing, Bass Boy, Vader-I always mention him because he put me through when I was coming up, so I will never forget him. If I ever get where I want to be then I will definitely pull him [Vader] through. famous picture of Mona Lisa. It is called Mona Leshurr because it is a work of art and is my first crafted masterpiece that I cannot wait for people to hear. I am really proud of it because I put it together myself and I'm really happy with the outcome. AND WHAT INSPIRED IT? I definitely wanted that Missy Elliot type of Timbaland old skool vibe. I want to bring the fun aspect of the game to the UK, because no one is doing that at the moment. I am just gassed really, because so many artists are supporting it and so many people are backing it, so I really appreciate that. out in the future will have me acting in too. I have just been signed to an Acting Agency actually and that was just due to the BBC prom thing, so they could see I could act from then really. SO LET'S GET TALKING ABOUT 'MONA LESHURR' Well 'Mona Leshurr' is a nine track EP which you can order from I-tunes now. Basically, the concept is the Follow @LadyLeshurr
