LittleSister joins us as a Women in Hip Hop panelist and judge at Emcee Olympics on Thursday, May 12th, 2016! Her production has been highlighted by the best Hip Hop outlets and platforms around the world. We can’t wait to hear her thoughts on today’s industry!
LittleSister is a Canadian hip-hop, dance and R&B producer from Courtice, Ontario. She has produced for some locally known artists such as “Geek” “Tee Krispil” and “Savannah Re”. She first made headlines at the international beat battle “Battle of the Beatmakers” competition in Toronto Canada where she impressed judges Lil’ Bibby, Southside of 808 Mafia (producer for Future, Young Thug, ect) and Boi1da (producer for drake, Eminem, Rihanna, ect.) with her talent and production skills and capabilities. She also produced the song used for the infamous Team Backpack International Women’s Day Cypher which has gained over 50,000 views on Youtube, 2 million views on Facebook and garnered the attention of many major blogs such as Fader, Noisey, Rapseason, Uptohiphopblog, and Lockerdome to name a few. LittleSister first started experimenting with music as a young child singing and songwriting as an escape from the dysfunction in her home, then later on dabbled in music production in her early 20’s “Music is a part of my soul” she says. “It was always my passion, and most times, the only thing that has kept me.” After rejection from fellow producers and engineers while attempting a career at singing she decided to try making her own rhythms. She downloaded a digital audio workstation program called Fruity Loops when she was 20 years old and off the bat began creating songs.  ” I said I never want anyone to ever tell me I wasn’t good enough to record or use their beats but from the moment I started [producing] I just loved it. I couldn’t get away from it. although I originally planned to produce for myself, it just grew into something greater than me.” Most people comment on her sound as being “refreshing” and “unique” mashup of electronic dance/funk melodies with hard hitting drums. LittleSister explains her sound as just wanting to “push the envelope as far as it’ll go.”
We hope to see you all at the Women in Hip Hop panel discussion and at Emcee Olympics to help celebrate Hip Hop and Hamilton’s young emcees!
