Mistajay: What is the story and conception behind your emcee name?

OmegaB: Lol. Which one? I’m gaining aliases. I chose Omega because that was the name I was given at birth. I am constantly evolving and I felt that it was befitting for me to go back to the source. To the time where I knew nothing or perhaps I knew everything and with time forgot. Either way, I have to change my mind. Omega never got a chance to grow. I felt this was the perfect time. The B on the end just means I be…whatever…I’m here!

Mistajay: What area are you reppin?

OmegaB: Well I’m torn between two!!! Right now I’ve sought refuge in Brooklyn, NY!!! But I will always be thorough bread, cornbread fed, Southern girl from Alabama. The home of the Tide!!!

Mistajay: What is the hip hop scene like there?

OmegaB: Hmm…BK..does what BK does…create! As far as Alabama..they’re finding their way as innovators. Trap is really big down there.

Mistajay: So you say you gain inspiration from a wide range of artists like KRS-One, Sade, Erykah Badu, Tribe Called Quest, Queen Latifah, Bob Marley, and Outkast what do you take from each one of these artists and what are your other influences of your music?

OmegaB: Umm I can’t put my finger on it. I just vibe with them. They all play different parts to the people inside of me. For the most and as a whole, I take their messages and study. Learn what I can. Regurgitate it back to the masses in a form that my generation is willing to understand.

Mistajay: And what else inspires you?

OmegaB: Life in general. People specifically.

Mistajay: How do you describe your style?

OmegaB: Not sure. The jury is still out on that one! I’d say I’m a B-Girl.

Mistajay: Are you currently working on any projects?

OmegaB: Always.

Mistajay: Tell us about them

OmegaB: My official album “Declaration of IndiePendence” will drop on July 31, 2013. Check my sites for info. I will also be releasing a couple of mixtapes before 2013 is over. MK Ultra (Mind Control) will drop Sep 11, 2013 and it focuses on the darker side of me. I will attribute Soljah Slim to writing this project. And finally “Cipherella” will complete the trinity. This is a straight head bobbing, true to Hip-Hop mixtape. I have a couple of beatbox guys on here…it’s gonna be dope! Release date TBD.

Mistajay: What is your best song recorded to date and why?

OmegaB: Definitely “Babylon” from the Mixtape “MK Ultra” dropping on September 11, 2013 =)

I think it’s my best song-to date- because I wrote it from a place of universal truth…from an objective view. I was unapologetic in delivering the lyrical content. I was very aggressive on this track which is different for me. But it felt good and the people love it. At the end of the day, that’s what matters to me the most. That the people take something from it.

Mistajay: When asked about your greatest moment in entertainment you always credit the performance in which you shared the stage with the legendary B.B. King. If you could share the stage with any other 3 artists or bands who are still around and touring, who would they be and why?

OmegaB: Without hesitation Erykah Badu because she’s the evolved me. According to math 2- 21/26. 19 year separation. I am Omega. Cipher complete. I just need to know where we going! Lol. Janelle Monae because she is an innovator. A true creator. I love her whole approach to the music scene. Her kind of art isn’t temporary or superficial. I digs it!! Ab Soul just because I hear him. My eyes are open and I feel that we can make movements together.

Mistajay: A lot of artists come into the game with a lot of ambition but don’t spend time learning the business side. How important to you is learning about publishing and royalties?

OmegaB: Honestly, zero to none at first. Like I said, I do it for the people so penetrating the game was not my focus but with time I’ve learned that even if you don’t know all there is to know, you do need to know about the rights to your music. It’s imperative. How do you expect to get paid?

Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2013?

OmegaB: Death to the rappers; resurrection of Emcee’s! I’m actually predicting that it’s about to revert back to the Golden ages when instruments were played and music was actually made that pertained to what is ACTUALLY going on around us.

Mistajay: How do you see yourself fitting into that?

OmegaB: Somewhere on stage with a Mic.

Mistajay: What are your future plans?

OmegaB: Well, later on today I plan on checking out this Vegetarian restaurant called the V-Spot. In the future future…like the remainder of 2013…I plan on putting my heart out on my mixtapes for the world to share….If we’re talking space time….I would like to be one of those Emcee’s who goes down in ourstory for using fame and fortune to inform a nation.

Mistajay: Any last thoughts?

OmegaB: Nope. You took all my good ones.

Mistajay: Where can fans follow you and get your music?

OmegaB: You can find me…Cipherella…Soljah Slim…the certified dope dealer, liberator, mind healer, gangsta Queen, futuristic being spreading Peace, Light, & Music at:
