7 Deadly Femcees: DDOT NuuWorld/ Missy Elliot

female rap coloring book cover

This week is all about showing the ladies mad love. We’re teaming up with our home girl, Naps the Cat; graffiti artist and creator of the Female Rap Coloring Book, for a seven-day series that will showcase seven different female emcees. Don’t think we’re going soft either; each of these women spit enough fire to scorch any male competition.

For our 7 Deadly Femcees series we’ve asked each rapper to choose and color in an emcee from Naps’ coloring book that has influenced them and their career.  Each day we’re bringing you a profile of a new dope femcee on the rise and a song to add to your Bump That playlist. You can thank us later.

 

Missy Ddot White

DDOT NuuWorld

For day 5, we have BK-based rapper and producer Ddot Nuuworld. Take a listen to her track and you can see why she chose Missy Elliot as her inspiration. Her style is out there. She’s at the forefront of futuristic hip hop and isn’t slowing down for anyone. Not only does she spit fire, but she also produces much of her own music. On any given night you can catch her performing all over NYC. This chick doesn’t sleep, and you shouldn’t sleep on her either.

Describe your music style.

My music style is “Nuu.” It’s a genre of music. Nuu is something that comes from within. It’s a power that is so mighty it was hidden in the last place you would look. It’s not one type of sound. Although to most, the description may seem broad but it makes sense. Think of something that excites you, being in a moment where you’re like, “Yesssss, I want more and I want in.” ‎Different and good.

Why did you choose this artist, what influence has she had on you and your music?

Missy Elliott, I can relate to simply because she created her own lane with her style of art/music. To me it’s obvious when you hear her work and look at her videos. She was fearless, creative and breaking the invisible boundaries we’ve been conditioned to settle for. When she came out as a solo artist, it was in a very important era in my life. I was in middle school. I was different in my style and in my way of thinking from others in my environment. I thought everyone else was strange, honestly. She influenced me by being who she is as an artist. It’s more than OK to think differently, you don’t have to box yourself into the “norm.” She showed me what I always knew, and that is being who you are can inspire others to be who they are. It’s almost like being in school, everyone has a book bag but me, I would have a duffel bag so I can fit my books and my radio in it. People were hype. Yes mom, I used to bring my radio to school.

What new projects are you working on?

I’m actually in the studio working on new material. I have a few things in mind but I don’t want to speak too much on it. It’s a lot of good sound and visual work coming soon. Enter The Nuu.

Check her song “Singing With No Words,
and let us know if you think she’s holding it down for Missy below.
