On Instagram I made a post asking people if they knew of any female producers because honestly I have done interviews with I think 75 or 76 producers, and only 1 has been a female (ParisTheProducer
). Among the names commented was IndiaOnDaTrack and the person (it wasn’t her) who commented said she was only 15 as well. Well that intrigued me because there’s a 15 y.r. old female producer apparently making waves, if her music is dope, then I want to showcase her work and I want to interview her.
After looking into her music and finding that in my opinion her beats sound like they would be perfect for rappers like Boosie and Young Buck (two of my favorites) I got her contact info and reached out.
So now I am proud to present the 2nd interview with a female producer for the site. To find out more about IndiaOnDaTrack and to check out her beats, keep reading.
