Who or what got you into hip hop music?
I love talking but growing up in a household of 8 children’ you don’t get the attention, so I started writing what I felt and what I went through. in 2010 I heard a song by Nicki Minaj, I can’t remember the title of the song but wow she was good and I was like I wanna do that too, forward 2011 I wrote my first song titled “Bad” inspired by my brother’s life, when I performed it to friends and classmates the feedback was always shocked faces and some went wild’
Who are the female rappers who inspire you in the hip hop industry?
Nicki Minaj, Nyemiah Supreme and Nadia Nakai
What makes Lime different from other hip hop female rap artists?

One word to describe Lime?
Who I s a female rapper that intimidates you in the hip hop music industry around your area and why?
There are no female rappers I know of where I live but I’m at a point where no one intimidates me, I worked hard to get to this level of confidence in my craft

Anything you would like to say concerning 16 days of Activism?
Women and children get abused each and everyday, even when there are laws \ campaigns against abuse. I think as a country we need to pray for such to end like we pray for the rain to fall
Surely there’s someone out there who wishes to be like Lime, how can you motivate them?
The thought of that got me smiling.
To every young person out there, follow what you love, surround yourself with positive minds, do a lot of research (as a rapper I download a lot of videos on promotion fan base and building a brand) and remember that dream chose you for a reason don’t let it slide.
