Some may call her a late bloomer because she only started rapping in 2015, but others will call her a natural born talent. Milfie is a native west side Detroit girl who knows no shame. She is brutally honest, spits fire, has probably made out with the girl you have a crush on, and she is killing the Detroit art scene. Don’t hold her down as just another scene girl though because Milfie is only starting her movement.
What inspired the name Milfie?
Milfie was inspired by my early pregnancy. I had my son at 18 and some people may not consider me a milf because I’m not old enough for cougar status. Milfie is just a lil cute version given to me by a friend and I hear that name more than my actual name, Jasmine.
When did you start rapping?
I started rapping in October of 2015. Even though that isn’t too far back, I’ve been writing poetry forever.
You have received a lot of opportunity and fans in a short amount of time, how does that feel?
People actually listen to my songs and share them, tweet my lyrics, and all types of shit. It makes me happy that people recognize my talent and genuine efforts to make music when I didn’t have the courage to for so long. Clearly, once I decided to do it though I went all out
Your lyrics are gritty yet boastful, what inspires your music?
I’m rapping about my life, the things I go through, how I’m grinding, and playing these niggas. I’m playing, but not really. I’m a hard ass worker and I think that’s why my lyrics are so boastful. Anything I have, I’ve worked to get. Everything I’m doing, will do, and have done are direct results of the pressure I’m putting on myself. I’m also a little (very) rough around the edges as a result of tough love from my mother and my city.
You also model, how has modeling helped your music?
It definitely helps me bring out my sexy and gets me comfortable in my skin. Modeling directly affects your confidence, and I also think that contributes to how boastful or cocky I may come off in music. Seeing a photo of myself with my face beat like the girls I watched as a kid on America’s Next Top Model? It makes me feel on top of the world. It makes me feel like I can literally do whateverthefuck I wanna do. BECAUSE I REALLY CAN.
Some consider you to be a sex symbol, do you consider yourself to be one, why or why not?
People consider me a sex symbol and I LOVE IT! I have a baby face. The baby face of all baby faces and I’m really grown as fuck. I like to put my sexy on the table because I enjoy it. I enjoy feeling sexy for myself. I’m assuming a sex ‘symbol’ would maybe make the sexiness a luxury for everyone else, but it really is for me I just know that I’m beautiful and I’m falling more in love with myself and my body everyday and I don’t mind flaunting it.
Who do you aspire to work with?
I aspire to work with Xavier Wulf. He is so hard man. He is so loud and proud and unapologetic and just everything. If you think I’m gritty and boastful, listen to Thunderman. I can’t wait to create with Sam Austins and The MonaLyse. I’ve known them for years and they have so much talent.
What new projects do you have coming up?
The most recent things I have dropped are Behavior and Filthy Vol. 1 which are two totally different flavors but still very me. This goes to show how crazy MILFIE will go when it drops early this year. I’ve been working on my sound and comfort level and I’m really just going to keep flourishing.
Where do you see yourself this time next year?
This time next year, I will be discussing my life with you, about how it changed my life and how I can’t believe it all happened this fast even though I’m speaking it right now. Watch.
