The other night we interviewed Destiny Da Chef, a Richmond based female artist who has been creating music since she was about 11 years old. Her testimony about her career reflected that of someone who had no fear about their art. I particularly liked her attitude when it came to her views on her other artist, and how she doesn’t allow what other people do affect her grind.
In a time where everyone wants to be the best, wants to out-shadow every person around them, and wants to step overhead for glory, this young woman has tunnel vision. Tuesday night we talked about the message in her lyrics and the songs she creates, a message that is drenched in female empowerment and motivation. Yes, we can make money, we can be different, and no one can stop what is already ours! Does she knock anybody down? I don’t think so. My impression from her is that, that is not her intention. Her style represents a person who doesn’t care what you’re doing if your goals aren’t in parallel to her own, which is success.
She has made a name for herself with her skills, but I think it’s her attitude as well that with usher you into being a fan. Her music is incredible, but it’s her live performances and the energy that accompanies it that makes you feel like jumping up and throwing the finger to the world. She describes it as being an angry kid, but it’s evident that her maturity is displayed when we discussed her ambitions.
** The interview was cut unexpectedly short due to some technical difficulties on our end with our audio and sound. I couldn’t let go of the opportunity to share what she was able to bring to the table, as I believe she is someone worth being motivated by. **
