Lil Mama Slams Label Over Album's Promo


Lil Mama


The female rapper stated to the media that she is disappointed with the way her record company distributed her debut LP.

Female rapper Lil Mama revealed the reason why her debut album "VYP: Voice of the Young People" only debuted at #25 on Billboard chart and was only sold about 19,000 on its first week. Speaking to Rap-up.com, Mama stated that her record label was the reason behind it.

On the interview Mama said that she was disappointed with the way her label Jive Records handles her debut LP promo. "I'm very disappointed in my label, Jive Records, for not promoting my record properly. I'm not a rapper first and foremost. I'm the birth of hip-pop. I'm an innovator and everything that I do is fresh. When you have something so new and fresh in your hands, you're supposed to know what to do with it," she said.

Moreover, the rapper also added that signing with a record company turn out to be different from what she was imagining. "By signing with a label, I signed knowing that everyone was on the same page as me and understanding what was going on," Mama explained. "But that wasn't what I thought it was."

Beside talking about her debut album's promo Mama also talked about the new music video for "What It Is (Strike a Pose)" featuring T-Pain, that she has just premiered. "It was real fun. Whenever I shoot at home in New York and I got my family supporting me dancers come through, it's always good because I get a chance to vibe out and it's not fake. It's just me being myself and having a lot of fun. T-Pain came through and we did our thing," Mama said.

On the interview, the rapper also revealed her admiration and respect to Lil Wayne, saying, "I wouldn't say a fan, I'd rather say he's a role model. He's a person that was an underdog and wasn't respected for his craft and now is definitely a rider. I'm very proud for him."
