Rapper and TV personality Lil Mama is covering the Fall 2011 issue of Mami magazine. Lil Mama was interviewed by Mami’s magazine publisher Algie Dewitt. In the cover story, Lil Mama talked about growing up in NYC, touring with Chris Brown, losing her mother to Breast Cancer, high-end fashion and much more. Below are some excerpts:
On growing up in NYC.
I was born in Harlem and raised in Brooklyn New York. I lived with my father but I spent an equal amount of time with my mom. Being with my father enabled me to get the special attention that a girl can only get from her dad. I feel as though I have as many traits from my mom as I do from my father. They both taught me to respect and believe in myself, those priceless lessons are always with me.
On her upcoming new album and future projects.
I’m focused on my next season of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew and recording my next album. I’m also scheduled to make a few selected guest appearances on the “World Music for the Cure” 2012 tour. My new single “Hustla Girl” will be on the CD compilation for the breast cancer tour. This song is a powerful tribute to the women out there on their grind getting it done.
