About the Inspiration & Production Behind HAZMAT
“HAZMAT was a message or open letter to my fans, but more so the new people on and offline that I meet or came in contact with. It is my confidence in my music and content to the point where I warn people who don’t know me and some who don’t like me that if they get to close, watch one too many videos or listen to too much of my music, they will come to love me lol. I got the idea from comments that people left on my Facebook and instagram videos. The people that left good comments I thanked them, but the ones who left negative comments, I would first let me know it’s ok to be honest with me if they didn’t like my music (I’m actually appreciate the constructive criticism), but I also started to warn them that I do many different genres and had so much variety in my sound. I gave them links to check out other material and I warned them what would happen if they watched too much loooool they would fall in love! I was right haha”
The beat used for HAZMAT was produced by Ira Parker of @MaximusMusic. Tamara said, “I fell in love with the beat and wrote to it immediately. I initially wanted to sing on it, but he wanted to me rap only so I wrote a completely different song to it (laughs)”. She said the final master required some time from Ira recording, then re-recording the new lyrics, mixing and mastering it, “but it was well worth it.”
Now, here her latest here (SHE DON’T STOP):
“Your Favorite Rapper is a Girl”
In 2018, we have more Tamara Bubble to look forward to. With a new EP coming early 2018 called “Your Favorite Rapper is a Girl”, she’s sure to make a wave next year.
When our editor asked Tamara how being a woman in the industry had affected her career, she answered poignantly. “I was very aware of my business side early on. I wanted people to respect my music so I practiced my craft relentlessly and am always writing,” she said. “I wanted people to respect my business so I’ve always tried to present myself professionally. Especially in rap, it’s much harder for the girls to win if people don’t take you serious.”
