Vixen Next Artist: Nyemiah Supreme

Name: Nyemiah SupremeNyemiah Supreme
Twitter: NyemiahSupreme
Instagram: NyemiahSupreme
Stage Name: Nyemiah is my real name. My actual first rap name was 'Supreme' which means the highest in authority; but, the name Supreme in Southside Jamaica, Queens [NYC] where I'm from is associated with a lot of negative things. I decided to merge it with my 1st name to give it my own flavor.
Age she wishes to remain forever: I think I would stay 5 years old. I feel like life is so easy as a child. Dreams were so pure and there was no such thing as fear which I think comes into play much more as you get older.  I vividly remember the 1st day of kindergarten. It was just the true feeling of free and fearless.

Insteresting Facts about Nyemiah: I eat lemons like someone would eat an orange and  I am a complete computer geek. All my friends and family always come to me to fix their electronics.

Dream Collaboration: Definitely Kanye West. He's an incredible creator and visionary. I absolutely love the energy he brings to his music, interviews, and just his overall art. I think collaborating with him musically would be amazing.
Her sound: I would call it hip-hop 2k13 and it will keep evolving. It's not the original 90's feel but there are hints of it through out my music, whether it's in the beat, the lyrics, or my flow—90's hip hop and r&b is a huge inspiration for my sound.
Musical Inspiration: Truth. My favorite topic to write about is love and the truth about the pain and happiness it brings. I like to rap about the issues between men and women, double standards, and relationships. Although music can be used to distract us from reality, so many people love it when it's about something real and honest that can be related to.  If I can spark a feeling of passion, I've done my job.
Her style: "Sexy-tomboy-cute". It's like a fusion of how ever I feel when I wake up. I love colorful sneakers—Jordans, Adidas, Converse—Timberlands and Doc Martens. I wear one piece jumpsuits, cat suits, cut up jeans, flannel shirts, cropped tops and accessories! I like dope chains, name plates, rings, and my gold grills. But my coolest and signature accessory is my long blonde 'supremacy' braid.
Her story: I started entertaining by background dancing when I got the opportunity to go on a Chris Brown tour when I was done with high school.  After that I got to a place where I didn't wanna stand behind someone anymore. I wanted to be the entertainer in front. I always loved hip hop and being on stage so, I made my decision to do just that. In a nutshell I started writing lyrics, picking out production, and booking studio time. The day I started, it became an everyday job for me. My big break was when Jim Jones asked me to do the hook on his song "Everybody Jones" and I've been going hard ever since. That moment really gave me the push I needed to get going.
On Fans: I want loyal and honest fans. I want them to ride with me through my ups and downs. If my song is whack I want that honest response and if it's great I want them going crazy. When I perform I love crowd participation so I need my fans to be there turned up, dancing, and yelling in the crowd. I represent the supremacy, which is basically what I refer to all people who aren't waiting for anyone's approval or co-sign to do what makes them happy.
What she wants you to take from her music: The diversity and the message. I don't want to be an artist who makes the same song over and over. Your gonna be surprised every time your hear and new Nyemiah Supreme track.  I rap about being in charge and knowing what I want for myself as a girl. I want my female listeners to feel the same—it's your world girl, own it!
About her EP There can be more than 1: The title is personal for my view on life and female hip hop. I'm very open minded and I consider every option before I make a decision. I hate to to be stuck in one way of thinking when there is more then one way to think. Also I feel like hip hop is an one-track mind when it comes to femcees. The theory that there can only be one at a time is bogus to me. At one point there were multiple females in hip hop—Missy Elliot, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Lauren Hill, Left Eye, and Da Brat. I feel like now is the time for that again, since we have so many new female MC's emerging. I hope my EP title is thought provoking and every one realizes its time to open your mind.
The legacy she wants to leave behind: I came. I saw. I conquered. I tried and I accomplished. A lot of people talk about it but, they are not really about it. I'm really about my dream and I go hard every day to make that happen. When I'm no longer here I want people to say, "Nye put that work in like no other."

Linking with Timbaland: My manager met with him about a year ago and played him some of my music and videos. He thought it was cool until he saw my "Aim, Shoot" video which really impressed him. He said "that's it right there, this is the one".  Timb had me come in the next day and start writing and recording to his beats less then 10 mins after meeting him. It was mind blowing because I'm such a huge fan of his production. Getting to work with the producer of Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott, Aaliyah and Jay Z is incredible and still somewhat surreal to me.

Learning from Timb is really dope. At first I was quiet and observant, watching how he creates and seeing the masterpieces come to life. He showed me how to take my time when creating a song, be free and push the limit, and not to be afraid to stop and start over 10 times if necessary. Every single time you are creating, create like this is the last thing people could hear from you. He told me "you want the music to be for everybody, even the people in the farthest places of the world". So I started creating from a place any person could enjoy.

City Girls Get "Careless" In New Music Video

In honor of the one-year anniversary of their debut project Period, City Girls has dropped a music video for their song "Careless."

The video stars the rap duo, Yung Miami and J.T., the latter who is currently serving a two-year sentence in Tallahassee. The visual directed by Gabriel "Video God" Hart, features the two rap divas sporting their iced out Quality Control chains rapping in the streets of what appears to be Miami. Both Yung Miami and J.T. are donning the same outfits, distressed jean shorts-underwear, a cropped Miami jersey with a white turtleneck underneath and the classic Timberland boots.

City Girls are showing exactly what they're made of as they rap about "living life so careless," and "h**s [being] so mad it's evident" with an entourage of women behind them. The short clip is full of fun-filled energy as the hot rappers bounce from location to location. Whether they're in a hotel room sipping on some Hennessy, in a store copping a couple of things, they still manage to get their bars off.

The visual is a good representation of what fans can expect from the rap duo, even more so if they see them in concert. Most recently Yung Miami performed the girls' big hit, "Act Up" at Rolling Loud with the help of Lil' Yachty, their co-collaborator on the song. Next up for Yung Miami is the Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Make sure to check out their music video above and stream Period in celebration of its one-year anniversary.

Blac Chyna Named As Suspect In Assault Against Hair Stylist

Well, this isn't the best way to celebrate your birthday.

Blac Chyna has reportedly got in trouble with the law again after a confrontation with her hair stylist. TMZ reports the Chyna and the employee who hasn't been unidentified, were at Chyna's home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. when they got into an argument over payment.

The police report alleges after the hair stylist attempted to collect her check from Chyna, the 31-year-old pulled out a knife. The hair dressed left and reportedly threw soda cans at Chyna's car. A source shared with the outlet that Chyna didn't have a weapon on her person but there were cans thrown at her car.

Because Chyna's six-year-old son King was present, there's a chance the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will get involved for a possible welfare check.

Chyna hasn't addressed the incident but will more than likely still have a nice birthday.

Queen Naija Responds To Backlash For Going Public About Plastic Surgery

Queen Najia's decision to be blunt about her plastic surgery was met with backlash when she was accused of normalizing the procedure for young women.

The singer-songwriter who is known for her bold personality and power vocals shared the video titled, "Revealing My New Body | One Week Post Op Tummy Tuck + BBL (Brazillian Buttlift)" on YouTube Friday (May 10). In a previous video, Naija vlogged her plans to get a tummy tuck while heading to the Billboard Music Awards where she was nominated for Top R&B Female Artist.

The singer previously went under the knife after the birth of her first child in 2017, leading to a case of bad fibrosis. "I'm really really happy about the results," she said. "I basically got a tummy tuck and I got my hernia repaired around my belly navel, it would puff out because of my loose skin. I had really really bad fibrosis from the smart lipo I got two years ago."

In her recap video, the singer seemed to be visibly happy with the results and additional unplanned surgery for the Brazilian Buttlift. "I'm just really really happy. I feel more confident with my body and being a mom with two kids and having two c-sections, and all the stuff going on with myself, I'm really happy," she said Friday. "I will not be getting any more surgery. I won't turn into one of those girls who gets lip fat added and all this stuff. I'm not touching my face. As yall know I got eye fillers and I'm never doing that again."

But her joy was quickly met with criticism after The Shade Room picked up a portion of the video on their Instagram page. Naija responded in jest. "Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said.  Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch."

#QueenNaija stepped into #TheShadeRoom to say she’s keeping it real about her surgery, period. 👀👀 (SWIPE)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on May 10, 2019 at 7:39pm PDT

The "Medicine" singer has been open with her journey to building her self-esteem and has shared why she decided to try surgery. "I do love myself but at the same time, you have to make your self happy," she said in 2017. "You don't have to look in the mirror and see what I see. At the end of the say, I'm the one who has to put up with my self-esteem. I tried to diet and workout but I didn't see any results in my stomach area [because of c-section]."

The topic of surgical enhancement with women of color has been a controversial topic, with many women dying for trying under the table procedures. Standards of beauty have continuously changed with social media and influencers holding relevance over the youth but the singer hasn't promoted the option to go under the knife to her fans.
