The secret to success is envisioning the future you want to have. This week’s episode features local CT hip-hop artist, La Tesce. We first connected at an open-mic in the summer of 2019 at a local venue & I was so inspired by her music and stage presence. She’s such a go-getter and this interview will motivate you to step up your game in whatever side-hustle or creative pursuit you’re working on.
As a female hip-hop artist, La Tesce shares what it’s like to be in a male-dominated field, the pressures men put on women to play up their sexuality because “sex sells”, and how she stays aligned with her authentic voice. Her mindset is going to inspire you to always speak your truth and how important it is for artists to not let outside voices overpower their own. With the release of “Wap” this summer, we have seen how even though it’s 2020, people still have a problem with women expressing their sexuality. We joke about how everyone secretly loves the song, and what female artists La Tesce draws inspiration from.
In this episode she shares:
- Ways she holds herself accountable as an artist
- How she’s been nourishing her creativity during COVID
- The importance of surrounding yourself with people that work harder than you
- Her songwriting process
- What it’s like being a female rapper
- How she stays focused on her vision & career
Listen to La Tesce on Spotify, subscribe on Youtube, and follow her on Instagram for more updates! Some of my favorite songs of her’s are Culture, Warning, and Late Night. It’s impossible to NOT dance to her music!
