30-year-old Detroit rapper T-Baby, the woman responsible for the most incredible RECORD of the year, “IT’S SO COLD IN THE D,” spoke to BLACKARAZZI.COM about - - wait for it - - haters and negative criticism.
If she doesn’t make Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2008 list I am shutting this site down and joining k-Ci and Jo Jo on their national tour of crack houses and Applebee’s restaurants.
“I really don’t CARE,” she said in a phone interview last week. “They’re going to hate anyway on me.”
The former Denby High SCHOOL student, who cites Mary J. Blige as an influence, wrote the song for Mason Graham, her friend who was shot and killed at a Coney Island in 2006. She recorded the song last year at a studio on Eight Mile, and the video — which also features several of Myles’ friends, as well as her 10-year-old son — was shot last October by local videographer Leo Williams . . .
Williams, who shot the video on a $300 budget, defends T-Baby and the video in an e-mail written to The Detroit News. “The pain she felt drove her to do this,” he writes. “It came from her soul, which is something a lot of (detractors) haven’t got or haven’t gotten in touch with lately.” He calls the song a “poignant little ditty.”
Thats $299 and biscuit more than a thought it was
