De Essence Entertainment Indie recording artist Essence, the creative lyricist and musicologist, has released her debut video for her breakout single “Unorthodox”. The video, directed by Brien Just and produced by DeLucia Media depicts Essence facing challenges in her life all the while trying to balance career with a love relationship. “Women pigeon hole themselves, often accepting what I call the “at least factor”—‘at least I have a job,’ ‘at least I have a man,’ settling for the lesser of the equation, instead of pursuing the right type of career, focusing on the character of a man and what truly makes them happy,” stated Essence. Essence continues, “My message is for women to find their voice, perfect their craft, build on the relationship they have with themselves and just go for whatever it is they have always wanted to do!”
Essence is the embodiment of every woman and she does it with style and grace. Proud, intelligent, independent and always focused on the prize, Essence always lands on her feet no matter what the impediments placed before her She has been ushered through the portals of the rap community with her astute, concise, cutting edge lyrics and never ending flow which many iconic rappers would envy. The Hartford, Connecticut native will host a press reception in her hometown on Tuesday, February 1, 2011.
Essence is unorthodox! She is empowered! She is sophisticated! She is sensuous! She is cool and hip!
Essence is the prototypical woman of today. And that is not Unorthodox.

Firstly thanks for taking time to do this exclusive interview for www.HipHop4Days.com. Let’s start at the beginning. How did you get into making music and when would you say your career started?
Not a problem. I always loved music and not just hip-hop but ALL music I heard being played around me. I started writing and recording about 6 years ago but I have been SERIOUS about it for about 4 years now.
From when you started to now, what do you consider to be your biggest tracks or releases?
My upcoming mixtape Sidetracked 2 due out on January 30th is probably my biggest ful release from me but as for single tracks I have a few.
Right Here Ft. Freck Billionaire (From Fabulous’s Street Fam)
Untouchable Ft. Los (Formely signed to Bad Boy)
and even performances with Mac Miller and Lloyd Banks
How would you describe the music that you make?
1 of a kind. Not saying im the best rapper but I feel no one else has the same type of music because no one else has gone through and experienced the same exact things I have. All my writing comes from the heart in a sense im just explaining my feelings, past, emotions etc.. on paper and recording them.
Have you done many collaborations, if so who have you worked with and what was your most memorable experience?
Like I said in the previous question I have worked with and preformed with Freck Billionaire Los Mac Miller and Lloyd Banks. My favorite would have to be the Lloyd Banks show or the song with Los but shoutouts to all them dudes for looking out!
Hip-Hop is changing all the time. How do you feel about Hip-Hop in 2010, who are you feeling and how is the game treating you?
lol 2011? I feel Hip-Hop state is improving getting back to its roots more and producing a lot of new school lyricists which is what I hope to be referred to as one day soon. As for who im listening to right now pick any name of the last 2 freshmen lists from XXL and there on my ipod as well as the legends.
Tell me about the label you’re with, even if it’s your own label. Tell us who is involved and how many people behind the scenes are helping you?
No label yet. Ive been approached a few times but until I get an offer I feel is comparable I will hold off on the politics.
The music industry is changing from CD’s & Vinyl over to MP3, stores are getting closed and on-line shops are starting up. Do you think CD’s are dead or do you think it depends on the genre & artist?
In a way I think they are dead lol the cd spot in our mall just shut done. I always got a good feeling from purchasing a cd and reading thru the album art and such that you cant get from an mp3 so hopefully there will be a comeback.
So where are you from exactly and have you ever done any local gigs?
West Chester, PA and to make things clear Asher Roth went to school here he IS NOT from here. Lol and yeah I play at a lot of local spots in the area.
The Note – West Chester, PA
Crocodile Rock – Allentown, PA
The Rusty Nail – Ardmore, PA
Fennarios – West Chester, PA
West Chester University – West Chester, PA
Have you done any big gigs or played live with any big artists? If so tell us what is was like and what playing live means to you.
Both the Mac Miller show and Lloyd Banks show were at Crocodile Rock and both times I had a lot of fun playing a crowd well over 500 people is one of the greatest feelings I have ever experienced. Just the look on there faces when someone you don’t even no is vibing out to your music is pure ecstasy.
Hip-Hop is sometime viewed as negative music and in the media often gets a raw deal. Do you think that Hip-Hop should be more positive and that artists have a responsibility to the youth?
Lol no I don’t think an artist should be anymore then himself. If they went thru a negative/rough time and there explaining it in a song I think its going to help more of the youth to know someone can relate and has gone thru it and turned there life around and became successful then its going to harm them. Obviously it is taken to far sometimes when artists portray themselves to be something they arnt but as long as the story they preach/tell is true I think its fine.
Can I get all the You Tube URL Links to all your music videos please?
there you can view all of my live shows, music videos, freestyles etc..
Can I get all your website links, facebook, myspace, reverb nation, twitter, etc.
