Representing Toronto, Canada, a place well-known and well-referenced as the "6" in urban music culture, Honey Cocaine is a young rap artist with a portfolio's work of potential to expand into the mainstream.
Not many can call themselves an expert of Asian rap, which is not to be polarized from the category of general rap: Honey Cocaine's sound speaks in a rather daring direction for the ethnic background she originates from, penning lyrics where everyday situations about getting money could involve guns, drive-bys (in real life), or ransom.
Since the release of the Thug Love mixtape and a circulation of popular song features, ex. Chanel West Coast's 'Blueberry Chills' and Dizzy Wright's 'Fashion' ft Kid Ink, Honey Cocaine's been putting "Asians on the map", pushing her independent movement to a new maxim while grinding out radio-worthy hits:
To be quite honest, however, the use of the "N" word by non-Blacks raises a major red flag in the Hip-Hop community, but musically Honey doesn't come across offensive using the word, although this may be a touchy subject to certain audiences.
Whether or not you appreciate Honey's campaign, her latest mixtape Like A Drug, or even understand how she's dealt her cards in the rap game so far, it's obvious that the "6" has emerged an artist on a serious wave to female rap success.
This year fans were released The Gift Rap EP, "a gift done up nice, it's well-produced, it's wrapped, but it's rap," according to an interview with Noisey. "And it's different. It's a gift to my fans."
No doubt that Honey Cocaine gets a stamp of approval on our behalves for the constant grind, musical content, and sexiness she's put forth coming into 2015 --and lastly for adding Cambodian Music Festival headliner to her resume.
