Hi! Introduce yourself, what is your name?

I am Goddess Venus, the Original, from Brooklyn, NY

What got you to where you are today?
I grew up in Marlboro projects with my 2 older brothers and 1 younger brother. My older brothers used to battle rap and I admired them! I knew that one day I wanted to become an artist myself.

When did you start your music journey?
I always knew the process of creating music and would work on verses on my brother’s computer. I decided to hit the studio and produce a full project 5 years ago after finally being able to develop my sound the way that I wanted and since I have been continuously growing!

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
I have always been a hard worker, but have been faced with people telling me that they didn’t think that I would be able successful as an independent artist, but I am! I have done so because of my drive!

What inspires you the most musically?
The beat, the moment, or the mind space that I am in at that time!

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
I want people to know that I am fun and relatable, but I am still myself, so I rap about things that resonate with me!

What is the purpose driving you to pursue music?
As a little girl, I used to watch my older brothers battle rap and found it so interesting! I used to know that I wanted to be like them but in my own form! I used to listen to my grandmother playing “James Brown” and watch her dance with her friends to his music! I found it so amazing!

What is your greatest achievement so far as a musician?
My greatest achievement as an artist is to be able to touch and inspire people, but my music is so upbeat, that I am able to do it in a fun way! I talk about getting your bag and pursuing your goals, whatever they may be.

One lady actually told me, “Girl because of your music, I went and fixed my credit!” The fact that I was able to motivate someone to go do that, really touched me!

Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
Artists like Jay Z, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and Aaliyah. To me, these are some of the greats!

Tell us about any new songs or projects you have coming out?
I have already released a mixtape, an EP as well as some singles. I have collaborated with my dope artists and I have some major projects releasing soon, that I am so excited about!
