Gracing the cover for Rolling Out magazine is Bronx native DreamDoll, as she speaks on the transformation from reality TV to rap and what producers were asking her for in exchange for beats.
The reality show star who was featured on “Bad Girls Club” and “Love & Hip Hop New York.”, did not have it easy when she decided to become a rapper. Although she used reality tv to get herself into the music industry, that came with obstacles.
“It’s just a little harder when it comes to the rap field for people to separate those two. Sometimes you get judged [by] the things that you do on reality TV, and they can’t give you the correct credit for the music. That’s how it is sometimes, but there isn’t a battlefield that I can’t get through,” she told Rolling Out magazine.
“It took me about four years to work on the business, work on my flow. This isn’t easy. It doesn’t come with a blueprint,” she added. Despite the ups and downs, DreamDoll isn’t stopping no time soon. Back in September she dropped visuals to the single ‘Ah Ah Ah’ featuring Fivio Foreign, which is approaching 1 million views on YouTube.
The 28 year-old rapper also revealed what producers were asking her in return for beats. “You have to have tough skin,” DreamDoll explained. “I’ve gotten turned down so many times. I’ve had people ask me for sex in exchange for their verses. I’ve had producers ask me to send nude photos for beats. I like to keep it business. If we do a record together, the team does it. My management and lawyers get the paperwork together first.”
DreamDoll will be performing live this Saturday night (October 10) “This Saturday October 10th #ColumbusDayWeekend I’ll be at the Wavy Day Party at a PRIVATE LOCATION in Miami and might even ride that BULL!! RSVP early!! w/ @made_fitness_247 & @steveo_bossin #WeInTheBuilding,” she went on to caption the promo for the live performance.
