SPECIALGIFT: I experienced Pretty Stizzy in action at the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program Dec 21 2011. You were extremely humble and showed an abundance of confidence in yourself. That is totally cool. How do you feel about your experience at Elegant Hoodness?
PRETTY STIZZY: My experience at the Elegant Hoodness Muscial Program was amazing I must say. Everybody came out showing love, showing off their god giving talents and promoting their companies. A lot of great networking and hard working people in the building.
SPECIALGIFT: Each time I listen to another track of yours, I’m amazed. You definitely have a hip hop sound. Where does all this energy steer from?
PRETTY STIZZY: Well Thank You :). The hip hop sound is there all the energy comes from my drive within to be heard around the world and be known as one of the best amongst the best mc’s. I believe I was born to make music. So with every track, I try to pour every bit of hunger I have for the rap game in it .
SPECIALGIFT: Your mix tape will be released soon entitled “Ugly” hosted by Dj Envy. For those of us who don’t know, how did this come about?
PRETTY STIZZY: Yes my first mixtape is entitled Ugly meaning ,”You Gotta Love Yourself “. The way this came about was I had entered a showcase with mysongisradioready.com rock the crowd part 6 in Harlem N.Y., where the winner would have their next mixtape hosted by the one and only peoples choice Dj Envy. So I went in there like the champ / beast that I am and won the competition against 15 other artist.
SPECIALGIFT: Tell us about your single “From Home“. I feel you have been expressing something your fans might want to know more about. Elaborate some.
PRETTY STIZZY: “From Home” is just a song I wrote actually my little cousin made the track sent it to me. I was in my room just thinking and the hook came to me. So I got creative and made it a track for anybody missing somebody or thinking about somebody no matter what the situation may be. Weather their happy or sad the person isn’t alive anymore, broke up, mad, whatever it doesn’t matter just know that who ever it is is still a thought. I like to write music that can relate to other people’s situations not always my own.
SPECIALGIFT: The Elegant Hoodness Musical Program is where I first had the opportunity to see you perform. How did you become acquainted with this program. How do you think Elegant Hoodness is relevant to up and coming artist as yourself?
PRETTY STIZZY: The way I became acquainted with the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program was through a close friend of mine that met an affiliate to the musical program Coach Dee. She explained to me how this event would be able to get me magazine exposure, possible radio play and a great amount of promotion. Also a chance to touch the stage and show Elegant Hoodness how “Ugly” things can really get, lol. I don’t think any up and coming artist can turn that down. If your serious this program can definitely benifit you and put your work in the right hands and to the right ears.
SPECIALGIFT: Stizzy, is there anything you would like to express that we haven’t yet?
PRETTY STIZZY: I would like to go back to the “Ugly” mixtape. I call my mixtape “Ugly” because I would like to show people how to love themselves. A lot of the time we skip over us to make other people happy and we forget to make ourselves happy. If you love yourself can’t nobody tell you no different. Sometimes from not loving yourself you can stop yourself from reaching your ultimate goals in life. So I encourage every man, girl, boy, women and everybody to start loving yourself, so why not call it “Ugly”? My mixtape coming January 1, 2012 Hosted By Dj Envy make sure you get your copy!
SPECIALGIFT: Is there anyone you would like to shout out at this time?
PRETTY STIZZY: Yes ! I would like to thank God of course for all the awesome things that he is doing in my life also a shoutout to the Specialgift N.A.B and The Elegant Hoodness Musical Program for taking time out to do this interview. I would like to shoutout My Family, Team Stizzy, Block Billionaires Entertainment, Armed And Dangerous, Mysongisradioready.com , Dj Envy, Holleywood Heartless, Real Deals, 100 proof, A.D The General ,Coach Dee And All My Supporters I Love You Guys Anticipate Pretty Stizzy!
