I am committed to showcasing talented female producers for the sole reason that there isn’t enough publicity or attention being shown to these women in hip hop! I am pretty sure I have interviewed over 100 producers and I am proud to say that Dre.StillPoppin is now the 4th female producer I am publishing an interview with. To hear her beats and find out more about her scroll down.

How old are you? 22
Where are you from? Yakima, Wa. A small town in Washington State
How long have you been producing? Why/How did you get into it? I think i started when i was 14/15, i did it for a couple years then i stopped for a long time
and started again when i was 19. i got into it when i heard of Travis Scott and his beats and the beats he rapped over, they were so dark and i loved it so much.
It made me want to try and create that.
What’s the dopest thing to happen to you since you started making music and releasing product? Just starting to get recognized on social media by bigger Artists and alot of people wanting to collab and tbh this interview!
Who are your biggest influences? Drake, Travis Scott, The Weeknd, $uicideBoy$, Kanye West
Want to give any shoutouts? S/o to my cousin Ivan aka Penguin. My cousin Jose aka Josesoyak aka Dabfeenz who is a producer and who got me into producing more seriously and to all my family in the Q-town. And to my big brother Luis who i look up to daily and who is the strongest man i know.
What is something about you people would be surprised to know? I’m a Girl. They flip when they find out I’m a girl producer
What is the best platform for selling your beats? why? in person, in the studio, instagram and airbit… In the studio more because they’ll be in the studio not knowing what to expect from a “Girl producer” and i play a beat and seeing their reactions are priceless. Then they want the beats and i help them make the song and give my input. its super fun.
Why don’t you use YouTube? I don’t really use youtube cause it just wasnt the best platform for me, i use to try and post more and share them alot but years would go by and not much changed. i think once i gain more attention ill post more on youtube. But as of now, it aint working haha. I started to make 1 minute beat videos on my IG and i gained so much more views and followers in less than 6 months, IG is helping me alot
Whats your process for making a beat? Watch people making beats on YouTube then i get inspired.
What do your beats normally cost? $20-50 lease $50-150 exclusive
What is the most you have made from one beat? $100
