From the sound of her songs, and the very explicit, provocative lyrics describing cheating in relationships and comparing passion and intimacy to the likes of drug addiction, most critics first impression is to sit back astonished by her words, in shock and wonder, others chastise her and pass judgment on her for the type of artist she portrays, but in most cases, listeners become extremely inquisitive about who Riskay is, causing her Myspace page to be bombarded with hits across the world, her iTunes download sales to increase and her Youtube link to have hits and plays at an incredible number and rate. Her astounding success at being able to draw the listeners who come across her music and website is what caused one of the most prestigious papers in the world, The New York Times to label her song “Smell Yo D*ck” as “the most memorable underground hit of 2007”.
Many people ask why the name Riskay? Well from the sounds of her music you can see that Riskay is Risky. Period. “I am not afraid to take risks and try something at least once to say I did it and take a chance to get the job done, but there is a line that I will never cross. The name Riskay and the risks refer only to my music and my dedication to hard work.” Standing at five foot and two inches, she is poised, self-assured and beautiful. Never indecisive as she explains why she is known as the ‘The Drama Queen’. “That’s because I am full of drama. I am very outspoken person that has no problem letting people know when I’m not happy”.
Riskay, was born and raised in Bartow, Florida, and has been rapping for six years. Having always wanted to sing and rap and was constantly told it wouldn’t work; she remained persistent until her chance came from another rapper named Bigg Baby. He needed a female rapper to rap on some of his songs so he asked her to feature on a few of them. Riskay shortly after that she began recording her own songs but it wasn’t until she featured on a song with Florida rapper Whitedawg that her name began to grow like wildfire throughout the Florida underground rap scene. The song was titled “Pop-a-pill”
Despite the many obstacles and odds stacking up against her, Riskay has been self motivated and inspired to let the world know that she has a story to tell and she plans on doing that by releasing an album strictly for the streets in August of 2008. She recently released her second single from the album titled “Baby I’m Certifed” featuring R&B songstress Tiffani Tyre, which was produced by Manbeast Productions. Riskay’s music has been labeled by many women of all types of races and backgrounds, as self empowering and motivating. These women have contacted Riskay via emails, myspace, phone calls, and they have even approached Riskay in the public, to let her know that her music is an inspiration to them. “Baby I’m Certified” is another one of those songs that many women can relate to. Every woman feels as if they are certified to be with the man they love. And when a person is in love they will do things that they wouldn’t do for anyone else. Look out for Riskay’s street album to be one of the realist tell it like it is albums that you have ever heard a female rapper release.
