Once upon a time, I discovered this female rapper. I don’t know very many white female rappers that also dive into hard rock. Almost Limp Bizkit style. Whitney doesn’t always do rock but even her style of rap is very different from a lot of the stuff I see today. Even Whitney herself has joked about having the whitest raps ever. This makes her more relatable to me. She barely drinks and doesn’t do drugs. She doesn’t cause trouble. I always see her livestreaming on Facebook chatting with her fans and streaming live concerts when she’s backstage waiting for her turn to go on. She’s not only talented but a good kid who genuinely loves what she does.
Whitney Peyton has won multiple awards including: Best Hip Hop Performance, Outstanding Spoken Word Artist, and Best Urban Artist. She also received a Tri State Indie Music Award for Emerging Indie Artist of the Year. She has travelled the world and headlined shows. Some of her influences include Missy Elliot, Eminem, Will Smith to name a few.
I appreciate the fact that Whitney’s songs are inspirational and telling a story with meaning. Her songs always mean something. It isn’t just about being “in da club” or getting “hot in here”. I guess when you’re told from a young age that you can’t be a rapper because you don’t fit a certain stereotype or you don’t talk a certain way you’ll want to get your story out there and at the same time inspire others to just be themselves.
Recently Whitney has released her new rap/rock EP ‘Refresh’ which are a bunch of remakes of her own older rap songs done in a rock style and it’s amazing! It’s also free on https://soundcloud.com/whitney-peyton and I highly recommend checking it out if you’re a fan of rap mixed with rock. My personal favorite track is Woopty Woo Woo because it is very similar to something Limp Bizkit would do and I loved Limp Bizkit when I was a kid. It’s a good thing my mom never caught me! Can you imagine a 5 year old kid singing “fuck fuck fuck” every 2 seconds?
