Introduce yourself to our readers, let them know your name and where you’re from.
I’m Ana Baby repping NYC uptown heavy s/o the Bronx & Harlem
Why did you start to do music?
Because I get paid for doing what I love to do
What do you do with your free time?
Pampering myself , hang with my family , eat at nice restaurants , go shopping with my friends , I love drinking coffee at dawn the world feels peaceful at that time
Have you had another career that wasn’t in the music industry?
I was a makeup artist when I was younger before I knew It was even possible to do Music what & I still love makeup to this day
When did you know that it was actually going to be your career?
When I dropped my first mixtape called the Evilqueen with Bangin Production & French Montana’s Cokeboys .. I knew music was going to be my life.
If you could get advice from any artist in the industry, who would it be and why?
So I can’t choose only one because I am Ana & This baby needs a lot to advice on all aspects of my life so it would be 3 people first Queen of the Barbies Nicki Minaj ..I say Nicki first because she has conquered the rap game her flow is so diverse it’s not one tone or one note she’s heavy on the bars & she’s beautiful and that’s important to know how to assert yourself not just for beauty but for your craft. Then 2nd is Queen of the B’s Beyoncé MRS Carter she can advise me on the balance of philanthropy & family and privacy because it’s very hard to stay private in this industry and slay on the same day ok & then last but not least the Queen of my TV Kris Jenner I would ask for advice on because she’s a Production genius so she can show me this TV Hollywood world life and advise me how to work the red carpet.
What or who influences your music?
Life & my mood & what I’m feeling when I hear the track.
But I like to go to 90’s hip hop & listen to Lil Kim or Lauren hill for inspiration.
What’s the process of creating music for you?
Just gimme a beat … I let the track talk to me & it tells me what to say … I like to write at home often it gives me time to marinate with the beat but I also like full sessions that the whole team can vibe on
Then I’ll do a rough draft and if we all feel strong about it we mix , master and release.
Has anyone helped you or guided you in getting your foot in the industry?
Yes, my family has always guided me and also my team from my Megatron Muzik family has truly assisted me it’s important to have a strong team in this industry and a team who supports you and uplifts your career.
Have you ever released an album?
Not yet very soon I will.. I only released my mixtapes so far. We’re getting ready for my first EP next
Tell our readers what to look out for next from you?
My next mixtape is called “Megatron presents Anamiss Prime”, my EP called “Evolved” will follow shortly after that, my beauty line is almost complete, I have Babygirllashes out right now on my website & I will be including all my new merch. Dropping new video for my new single release called JLO song out right now and IM working on my live talk show called LETSTALKABOUTITLIVE so fingers crossed TV soon
What differentiates you from other artists?
My mentality is different, therefore my brand is different I work hard and I’m genuine. you know how many celebrities I know and I don’t clout chase just to get on. I’m not posting every text or DM to have a story to tell .. I’m very private I don’t want to expose my troubles unless I’m empathizing & helping someone. I don’t randomly get temperamental just to get likes and views ..I’m not watching other females and now I want to rock Fashion Nova just to be down & follow the crowd or let take something your doing and do it first … I’ve been in black men’s magazine yes but I don’t rely on sex only to sell… I read chics and I read books .. it’s a balance and I think I bring book and streets smarts to my music I think I’m classy sexy & edgy in one… these days it’s this or that I think I’m this & that .. I feel a lot of artist today aren’t rappers they are Instagrammers putting on for the gram but you can’t live off illusions how u don’t even write your own music & you don’t feel no way bout that well if it’s bout money then you gotta do what gotta do I don’t knock it but that’s the difference I’m not just doing anything for a dollar especially if it goes against what I feel and that might make me the odd man out but I’m just that real .
How can promoters looking to book you get in contact with you?
I have a wonderful team to assist with that contact @plugstar_socialclub @megatronmuzikllc
What do you hope to get out of your involvement in the music industry?
Man when I was a little girl it was Lauren hill, Missy Elliott , lil Kim , Left Eye, Nicki, Remy now I see Cardi and Megan to name a few and all these ladies have they own style and it just feels good to see women boss up … and I hope I can do that for a someone out there watching me whoever that might be I hope I can spread the hope and show that you can be anything you want to be. Style is in the eye of the beholder just follow your heart.
