On Saturday, February 1st, I got the incredible opportunity to meet and interview Lil’ Clitty, an up-and-coming female rapper. I’ll let her introduce herself-

Literary Pixie: So, Lil’ Clitty, what do you rap about? You are not a traditional rapper, talking about ‘hoes and shit’.
Lil’ Clitty: Well, I rap about anything really that comes into my head- even ‘hoes and shit’. See, I want to break the stereotypical boundaries of rap. Mostly, I rap about girl troubles, and being lonely. Or about wearing socks with tights on as well. My ‘mission statement’, I guess, is to rap about ‘middle-class white girl problems’.
Literary Pixie: Here at Literary Pixie, we can relate to that. It really sucks that ‘middle-class white girl problems’ are not taken seriously.
Lil’ Clitty: Exactly. We should take everyone’s problems seriously, because it really is all relative!
Literary Pixie: How do you feel about the controversy over Lorde’s song ‘Royals’, and the concept that she is basically singing about ‘middle class white girl’ problems, and the Yahoo Sketch comedy video?
Lil’ Clitty: Personally, I think it’s quite a sad song. It does show the middle class shallowness, and the huge trend in our society of just wanting fame and parties. Facebook and other Social Media sites make it even easier to be famous- or at least feel famous. It’s like Rebecca Black’s song ‘Saturday’, and how sadly it pretty accurately demonstrates our culture at the moment.
Literary Pixie: Who would you say your inspirations are?
Lil’ Clitty: Shout out to Lil’ Dicky, who really inspired my name. He raps about ‘white middle class jewish’ male problems, and he raps the shit out of them. Also, Lilly Allen.
Literary: Well, thank you very much for speaking with me Lil’ Clitty. It has been truly pleasurable (if you get what I mean).
Lil’ Clitty will be helping host on Werd with Jay and Sam this Tuesday, February 4th at 9pm (UK time). Log on to standrewsradio.com to listen.
