The Radio Boys (C.Truth, Kev Lawrence) found out what the Rita J (@ritaJ79) variety show was all about. The Chicago native spoke on: getting inspired by hip hop, having dance as her first passion, trolling through her dad’s vinyl and 8 track collection, being influenced by triple threat women such as: Jasmin Guy, Debbie Allen, Rosie Perez, performing in theater plays, rocking her own unique style without the big budget, dropping off the track team after 1 day, living the project dorm life at Southern Illinois University, using her engineering skills to master her music, touring heavily in France with turntablist C2C, the youth violence in the city of Chicago, handling her own business from marketing to accounting, teaching juicing classes, exploring her interest in nutrition and holistic health, passing on guys in tall tees & UGG boots, and behind the scenes of her video “The Dough.” In addition Rita expressed her love for speaking to students in classroom settings. She names Mc Lyte, Queen Latifah, Nas, Buckshot, Black Thought, Digable planets, Fiona Apple, Outcast, and Pharcyde as musical impacts on her. Give your ears some entertainment.
