Every time we ask someone in the music business what is the most exciting thing happening in music in the City of Boston, we always get the same answer. Hip-Hop. Not only has Hip Hop become the most popular music genre in the rest of the world, but Boston has become a hotbed of fantastic hip-hop artists like our next guest, Brandie Blaze.
Brandie is nominated for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards and is blazing (sorry) her own path with her powerful and energetic performances. Her on stage persona is fierce, with socially conscious but also unapologetically explicit lyrics.
She gives credit for her success to her mother, who she says raised her to be aware of the world she lives in, as well as other Boston Hip-Hop artists like Dutch Rebelle, Moe Pope, Oompa, and her collaborator in music Red Shaydez. But she doesn’t seem like someone who needs a leg up.
Brandie describes herself as a Trap Feminist, which she’ll explain in the conversation. She is devoted to her off stage work with The Dorchester Arts Project as well as being a program manager at Mission Safe.
Her last album Late Bloomer got everyone’s attention. We can’t wait until she grabs our attention again with her next album coming out next spring.
