Entertainer Ahsh Eff and I have been following each other for over a year now. We have see each other grow and expand our careers and dreams and have supported each other along the way. She has just recently released her first music video #SoAmazing which is impressive and different, something that will stick with you and empower you as a man or a women, she's the future in music and performance. Enjoy my interview with her below!
AHSH EFF: the breakdown.
Q: Where were you born and how old are you?
A: I was born in Saratoga Springs, New York and I am 18 years wise.
Q: How did you come up with the name Ahsh Eff and what does it mean to you?
A: Ahsh came from my middle name, Ahshāe which means to live life, and Eff is short for Effect. Ahsh Eff meaning the effect I want my music to have on everyone. It means everything to me, but most importantly it symbolizes evolution.
Q: Who are your musical influences?
A: Some of my musical influences are The T.R.U Soldiers, UGK, Dipset, Juvenile, & Nirvana. . . Just to name a few.
Q: What have been your greatest struggles in being a female rapper?
A: One of my biggest struggles has been removing myself from the category of "Female Rapper" and instead an Entertainer. I feel as though calling myself a Female Rapper is limiting myself, considering the diversity of my skills. If a female can perform at the equivalent of her male counterparts why can't she just be a dope ass Entertainer regardless of gender?!?!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as being quirky, weird, abnormal and very brave but tasteful.
Q: When is your mix tape being released and how can we get it?
A: My MixTape is being released in late August 2013. When it's released the link will be available on all of my social media outlets, as well as a major MixTape outlet... TBA soon.

Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
A: In 5 years I see myself evolving into a brand that is not limited to music, with the ability to branch off into different aspects of the entertainment industry such as, acting, modeling, producing etc.
Q: What do you want to do for the music industry?
A: I want to offer my perspective on music as the Art of self expression.
Q: What message does your music send out?
A: More than a message my music is a testimonial glimpse into my life as well as the lives of others who may not be able to or know how to discuss their experiences or express their emotions.
Q: And finally, what is some positive advice you can give to people who want to follow their dreams but are too scared?
A: The shoulda, woulda, coulda's will haunt you for the rest of your life so take the risk, and push the envelope!
