A New Rap Artist Sparking in the Hip Hop Era: Deetranada Tells it All

She is no stranger to the music world when it comes to getting her hands dirty.  Deetranada is from Baltimore and is already changing the game with her live activism through her music.  Her face might look familiar because she has been on Jermaine Dupri’s show, season three of The Rap Game, which is the most popular show on Lifetime.  The passion to started rapping was due to the fact that she used to get bullied a lot at a young age.  That motivated her even more when she was also was introduced to the poetry game where she used her words to talk about hardships and things she went through.

Deetranada has big dreams and big goals and being in the music industry was one of them. The opportunity of being on the Rap Game went smoothly being that she was already claiming that in the atmosphere before it actually happened.  Doing freestyles every Friday on Instagram, tagging became her best friend; tagging Jermaine Dupri and the Rap Game in her posts.  When JD started following her and the producer from the show reaching out to Deetranada asking her to be apart of the show paved other opportunities for the world knowing what she was really all about.  The only difference between her and the other kids on the show was that they had more experience with being in the studio and performing on the stage with celebrities, but that didn’t stop Deetranada from doing what she love the most.  She had the confidence to make things happen and through her music, she was doing actually what she was called to do and that was to make a difference through her rap.

The one thing that sets her apart from other rappers is the fact in her music she doesn’t cuss, but the biggest thing is talking about the things that are happening in the world right now.  She is a young activist living her dream and wanting to make a difference in her community and to the world.

“It’s kids dying, black-on-black crimes.  Most kid and adult rappers won’t speak on that,” says Deetranada during the interview.

Nashville-TN- The man that killed four people at a Waffle House is now in custody.  29-year old Travis Reinking opened fire and killed four people.  Police are unsure on why Reinking opened fire in the first place.  They think it may be due to mental issues.  More than 100 police troopers have been going door-to-door and looking in wooded areas for the suspect.  Days before the incident, Reinking stole a BMW; police found the stolen vehicle, but it didn’t link him to the suspect. 

The four people that were killed were of different races; three were African-American and the other was Hispanic. Reinking was involved in other incidents such as in May of 2016, he told Illonois police that singer Taylor Swift was stalking him and hacking his phone.  He agreed to check into a local hospital for an evaluation.  Then last June, Reinking jumped into a community pool wearing a pink woman’s coat over his underwear.  Then last July, Secret Service arrested him for trespassing and entered the White House.  He said that he wanted to meet President Donald Trump.  

“There’s certainly evidence that there’s some sort of mental health issues involved,” Tazewell County Sheriff Robert Huston said.
