Female Reloaded had the opportunity to interview one of South Florida’s up and coming rap groups by the name Slick and Kip. One thing I will say about this group is that they remind me a lot of OutKast, the way that their different personalities play off one another.
Throughout the rest of December, Femalereloaded.com will post videos from this interview along with photos and outtakes to shed light on who these artists are as individuals. In the mean time, check out part one of the interview and their mixtape below.

One of our first encounters with you was on “Gossip Girls.” How different was the experience of Sparkle with its all-black cast?
First off, I just want to say that I am very thankful for the opportunity that I received with “Gossip Girls.” To me though, acting is just acting. I honestly don’t like saying a black film, because on the flip side, we don’t call then white films. At the end of the day, when they say action, we all have to do the same job.
After being in the industry for a few years now, what is the one thing that you know about yourself that you didn’t know before?
Well, I know that I’m enough, and that I have something to offer the world. I guess now that I’ve grown up and gotten a little older, I know what I want, and I know what I want in a mate and I’m able to say it. I’m not one to beat around the bush anymore. There was a time when I was so concerned about hurting people’s feelings, but it’s not that way anymore. While I still care about people’s feelings, I understand the importance of being able to express exactly what I want, and exactly how I’m feeling.
On Her Dating Life:
(smiles) I’m currently single.[...]My perfect date is just a guy that takes control and plans everything. I have to plan so much in my own life, so I wouldn’t want the responsibility of planning something fun. So I’m down for mostly anything, but a nice dinner or bowling would be great. I just like something fun that I don’t have to plan.
How did you channel your character Delores in the movie Sparkle?
I’m grateful to [screenwriter] Mara Brock Akil, because she expanded the role of Delores. I definitely think there is some of me in the character … she is a protector and a strong person, which mirrors my own personality a lot. The great thing about the role, is that I was able to really take chances and expand upon who Delores was in the original.
