I think this is the song that’s going to get Elle Teresa’s name out further in the states. This song bangs and sounds like the perfect blend of Japanese & American Sugar Trap…
Elle Teresa drops her newest video right as buzz starts to increase about her due to her alignment with Famous Dex.
They have yet to release music but I am sure it is on the way.
Remember I said the east was rising! and Yuskey Carter is one of those on the come up. He plays double duty as both the producer for Elle Teresa and as a rapper with his own career himself.
I was able to get him to do an interview after doing the one with Elle, so scroll down to check out more!
Elle Teresa is a Japanese Femcee who I believe is poised to have a breakout year in 2018. After seeing her most recent song “Zombitch” with Bali Baby, I got in contact with her management so we could do an interview.
How old are you? 20 y.o
How did you come up with the name Elle Teresa? Have you had any other rap names?
Elle is my real name and when I started to rap, my boss suggested to have a “last name”. People had told me that I look like the “teresa” from Super Mario Brothers so I took that name and became Elle Teresa.
Where are you from? Does that any influence on your music?
-I’m from Shizuoka Japan, where the Fuji mountain is. I was a dancer before becoming a rapper. My mom owns a dance studio so I grew up in the environment where I was always surrounded by music.
Are you involved in your local rap scene or no?
-I don’t think people from my home town really like me, but I still wanna give them back something when I become famous.
What’s the dopest (coolest) thing to happen to you since you started rapping and releasing product?
-When I performed in Fukuoka. The club was so packed that I couldn’t even use my lighter.
To know that I could get that much support and that many people wanted to see me was super cool.
The production you find to rap on beats is pretty fired. Who makes the beats?
-My homie “LAZ¥ $TAR” and “Never child”. I would only use my homies beats.
Who are your biggest musical influences? I ask this because your music seems pretty in line with Rico Nasty and Bali Baby, buttt I see you have been making this type of music for the last 2.5 years. So I guess what I want to know is where did your pink trap style come from?
Could be many but no one changed my life. I’m the one who will change people’s lives so haha
What are your goals?
got no goals.
what did you do 2day?
I was hanging out with my friend J stash and Yuskey, we went to VR ZONE.
How did the feature with Bali Baby come about? Did you reach out to her, or did she reach out to you? I wouldn’t mind seeing more collaborations from you two in the future.
Bali DMed me and I thought she was super cool. I was like ‘we gotta make this happen!’. It’s my first time featuring with an artist outside of Japan.
Bali was awesome in person too!!!
Have you done any shows in America yet?
I haven’t! waiting for the offer y’all.
What are your plans for 2018?
I’m releasing my first album in march, then another EP and a mix tape will follow.
Rico Nasty is back at it again this time around with a track / video called “Smack A Bitch” with a beat produced by Kenny Beats. This song sounds like some grunge rock infused sugar trap. If you have been paying attention to her rise, you can see that she is really coming into her sound!
The east is rising.
Meet Elle Teresa, her music is best described as the name of her most recent mixtape “Pink Trap” or Rico Nasty’s term “Sugar Trap”… And her music could best be described as aligning with bali baby or rico nasty but she raps in Japanese. In fact Bali Baby is featured in her most recent song and the video.
but trust me when I say Elle Teresa isn’t just popping out of nowhere and trying to ride a wave. From what I can see on the YouTube channel that uploads her videos, she has been putting music out like this for at least 2.5 years already. In fact below is her first video which was released Oct. 1, 2015
I am hoping I can score an interview with her. stay tuned.
