“Despite her infamous background Griselda was in a game controlled and dominated by men but she was just as big and bad as they were, she did not play [laughs Jacki-O]”. When asked why she named the mixtape Griselda Jacki-O delivered an interesting answer. “Being a female in this industry you got to be a fighter to get your respect, and show people that females work just as hard as the guys do, if not harder. I am not condoning her lifestyle but I can’t knock her either, because I’m from the streets of Miami and life was no crystal stair for us. There were days we didn’t know where our next meal would come from, and sometimes those types of situations can tempt you to get into the street life”
When asked about her thoughts on female rappers that have someone penning their lyrics, Jacki delivered this in response.” I don’t feel any way about it because some men don’t write their own lyrics either,” she explains before dismissing those that choose to let another pen their rhymes – male or female. “It’s like a horn that has no sound. What is it for? If you are an artist, you should be able to express yourself. People want to know how you feel. It’s like a painter that can’t paint – they aren’t a painter. That’s crazy to me. ” Currently in the works is the street album Ms. Pacman Money Hungry, Relentless the album/book until these projects are released fans can download the recently released mixtapes Jack Da Ripper, Free Agent, and B.B.B.P (Bad Bitches Bang Pink).
