Dubcnn: Tell me about growing up in Oakland, CA?

I grew up on 47th Street in North Oakland in a close knit family. The block had family members on both sides and was filled with both joy and pain. I attended public and private schools in an around the East Bay and was always in some sort of talent activities where I had to be the center of attention. I was the queen of beat box in most schools I attended. My teen years in Oakland were filled with violence and good music. For instance, I always rolled around town bumping Too Short and Dru Down (Pimp of The Year). I danced at many family gathering to the sounds of “Rumors” and later on I had a chance to work with Mike Marshall the lead singer for Timex Social Club. I also lost a number of close friends to crime, drugs and violence.

Overall, I was always soul searching in Oakland because the City of really cultural, inspiring and groundbreaking. Oakland allows you to be an original (Too Short, Ant Banks, Richie Rich, MC Hammer, Tony, Toni, Tone, Keisha Cole and more)and I was always proud that I was a unique person, from the way I wore my hair to the weird clothes my parents allowed me to wear. By living so close to Berkeley I became a hip hop hippie. I was actually born in Berkeley and raised in Oakland.

Dubcnn: How did you get started in the music business?

I started in the music industry from birth. My mother read poetry to me at an early age and was a powerful storyteller. From my mother I believe I got the gift of rhythm. I got my gospel and soul from my father who is a well known pastor in the Oakland Community. I believe my jazzy sound comes from my upbringing in the church. I had great strong black women that directed me in the church and pulled out my soul and taught me how to arrange songs in the church choir. From there I participated in a number of local talent shows and grew from there. I relocated at to Milwaukee, WI at the age of 13 and began to learn the streets of the Midwest and the rap game. Life moved fast and a number of my cousins there were involved in the street life that I found fascinating. I learned my Swag from them. I moved back to Oakland at the age of 16 and ended up in a group called Deeply Rooted. This was powerful political rap group that did several community shows. We opened shows for comedian Paul Mooney, comedian Lynell, and the television network "SoulBeat" (Oakland’s B.E.T before B.E.T). I ended up in a Brazilian Rock Band out of San Francisco called “RIPE” that shaped my mind to be open to new sounds and genres. I began dancing SAMBA professionally with a dance troupe called “Aquadella” that participated in San Francisco's annual Carnival festivals and travelled locally.

Dubcnn: Who were some of your influences coming up?

My influences growing up were Elvis Pressley, Peter Gabriel, Prince, Salt and Pepper, LL Cool J, Run DMC, MC Hammer, Too Short, Dru Down, Tina Turner, Al Green Cher, Diane Ross, and Michael Jackson to name a few. All had a profound effect on my musical career. Each has shaped my musical sound in one way or another. Michael Jackson was a big influence because he was so shy and so eccentric on stage. I have often been told my personality is like his because I transform on stage or in the booth. When I hear a beat my ear hears the sounds of my past and I can immediately freestyle something from my soul.

Dubcnn: Describe your music and sound?

My sound is distinguished by my voice. I have a raspy voice that I use as an instrument to add to any beat. My adlibs are always intentionally placed to enhance my sound.

Dubcnn: Being from Oakland, have you ever worked with Too $hort or E-40?

I have opened for Too Short and worked with a number of E40’s artists including Turf Talk and J Mennix. I worked with the official voice of the Bay in Mike Marshall.

Dubcnn: You had a song with Mike Marshall (I GOt 5 On It; Timex Social Club), how did that go down and what was it like recording with Mike?

I was honored to work with Mike and the session was so powerful. I told me that he worked out of a small studio when he recorded “I Got Five On It” and our confines were extremely similar. He was such a perfectionist and he pushed me to new limits that I strive for today in the booth.

Dubcnn: Tell us about your own energy drink line, Swag Juice.

Swag Juice is a takeoff on my last album “Its My Swagga.” I was offered an opportunity to have my own energy drink based on my Internet presence and my management team came up with the name and we soft launched six months ago. We have garnered a lot of attention in a short period of time with limited marketing and resources. However, the product is well positioned to impact in the marketplace. We are negotiating with a number of distributors domestically and internationally. Swag Juice – “Put Some Swag In Your STEP!”

Dubcnn: What project or projects are you working on now, any major collaborations?

I am working on my new album “Swaged Out” coming soon on Hoopla Media Group, LLC/Universal Records. I have been concentrating on doing me in the booth and working with Desmond Map, Spice 1, Big V, Tan D, and Mike Marshall. My production has stepped up on this project with tracks from Epidemic, C Major, FoKiss, Mike Mosley, Traxx, and Bennie Owens.

Dubcnn: Can you speak on your overseas fame?

I have a huge internet presence on MySpace with over 2 million views and over 1 million plays. A number of internet radio stations request my music and stream around the world. I number of DJ’s have interviewed me on the air in the Germany, Poland, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. We are currently working on a 360 licensing agreement that will add a new dimension to my musical career. I am hoping to tour soon internationally.

Dubcnn: What are some of the big things you've accomplished so far, musically?

My biggest accomplishment thus far is sticking to the grind. I have been discouraged a number of times because people promise you the moon and deliver nothing. So, my belief and strength in god has pulled my through, plus my father’s nurturing advice has been a blessing.

Dubcnn: Who is the best female emcee in your opinion?

The best female emcee besides me *laughs* is Missy Elliott. She is versatile and very unique. I pride myself on being unique and having the mainstream be accepting of my music would be icing on the cake. I do not listen to many current artists in my genre because I am always expanding my musical taste and I am constantly striving to push the boundaries within my soul.

Dubcnn: Who are some artists you'd like to collaborate with?

I would love to collaborate with Mary J, Missy Elliott, E-40, Tech9ne, Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill to name a few.

Dubcnn: Where can readers catch up with you at?

You can reach me at MySpace or Twitter or YouTube/.

Dubcnn: Do you have any final thoughts for our readers?

"hip hop/ r&b recording artist, 'TEQUILA'"

HIP HOP/R&B Recording Artist “Tequila”

This is the year of “The Rat” as well as a “Lunar Year” which means a lot will be happening and New Discoveries will be made and Introduced to The Entire World.

Thankful & Delighted to be a part of this Blessed and Interesting Year of New Discoveries, I would like Introduce to some and Present to others, “Hip Hop/R&B” Recording Artist, “Tequila”! Originally from The San Francisco Bay Area, “Tequila” is making waves on the Music Scene with her New Single “Hiphy Girl”, which can be heard on her website; www.myspace.com/tequila . Producer/Managers “Broyce Batchan” & “Calvin Schexnayder”, owners of “Onlok Music & Entertainment, Inc.”, have been working together for the past 5 years and Primarily & Exclusively Manage “Tequila’s Music Career”. This is the year God has set aside for “Special Blessings” and “Tequila” is truly “Special”!


Introducing Tequila, a new emerging female rapper from Oakland, California. Growing up in the Bay Area, Tequila witnessed the birth of Hyphy music and was inspired by this trend along with her love of singing and rapping to persue a career in music. Here, you will find out more about Tequila and her plans to take on the music industry by storm, as well as the opportunity to listen to her music to see what Tequila has to offer...

What Hyphy artist or song was it that caught your attention and made you want to become an artist as well?

No artist made me want to become an artist because I was always into music as a youngster singing at school and in church. However, MacDre's music is a symbol of hyphy music and when I heard his music it made me proud to be from the Bay Area where the hyphy sound was starting to spread. MacDre, Keak Da Sneak, E-40, Too Short and Cougnut were favorites.

I know you started singing in the church-when did you know that you wanted to be a performer?

As a child! My father (WC McClinton) had a television ministry and he put me on my own Christian Kids talk show. I loved to sing in the church and perform at recess in school to entertain my peers. As I grew up, my desire to entertain grew. To this day, whenever I see a stage or someone performing I

want to let people know I was a rapper.

Who was Tequila before she became a rapper? What type of student were you in High School? Were you in any organizations, athletics, etc?

Tequila is my birth name but I believe I was always a rapper since grade school. I could not wait for recess or between classes to entertain the other kids. I was not into school much but I loved to entertain and draw attention to myself. I regret that I did not apply myself in school because as I look back on it now I could have done so much better. I am applying my knowledge now to do better and I want to encourage those that felt the same way about school to apply yourself now and you won't regret it like me. You already know I was into band because it had something to do with music, performing and entertaining.

What are the misconceptions of Hyphy music (if any) that you would like to resolve?

Hyphy music is misconceived as a fade and some artists' get boxed as only able to do fade music. My music far exceeds hyphy, but I am not ashamed to do some hyphy music. To say hyphy is a fad is to say the Bay Area is a fade because hyphy is our lifestyle. Much like hip hop is a lifestyle. I believe we have always been hyphy in the Bay Area but now the public has put a label on it. I don't think that our music gets the credit it deserves but we don't have the artists getting into the mainstream like other areas either. We have a lot of talented artists' doing hyphy music here in the Bay Area and a couple artists have gotten deals. My music is more than hyphy, but the single is a hyphy single. When I first put my music on myspace all the other regions of the country responded well outside the Bay Area. I classify my music as neo-soul, jazz, hyphy hip hop!

As an upcoming female Hip Hop artist, you will have young girls looking up to you and with the many misogynistic videos and songs on TV and the radio, you will by default be looked up to as a role model for young girls-how do you respond to that?

I don't look down upon anyone and what they do with their music because music is a form of expression. I don't do sex songs or song that degrade myself. I was raised in the church to respect myself and others so I don't want to put myself out there like that. I welcome the role of being a role model to young girls. I am not perfect but I am not misguided either. My music is not all peaches and cream but again it is a form of expression.

Often times an artist has music and his/her message does not come across correctly by audiences. What is it about your music that you want people to understand the most?

A lot of my music are my life experiences so I rap and sing about what I know. The hood, gangsta, ghetto, progress, success are all things I can testify too. As I grow in this industry my experiences will grow and my music will grow. Listen to my song on my myspace page "I'm Just Me" for an idea of who I really am!

So, your song Go Dumb Girl isn't necessarily about an actual non-intelligent girl-explain to our readers what Go Dumb Girl is about-and what the unique hyphy slang is all about.

Go Dumb is party song! Go Dumb Girl is to have fun. Go Dumb Girl is to have fun. Go dumb, get stupid, get hyphy are all fun expressions of enjoy yourself. 18 dummy is to to drink 1800 Tequila. Get hyphy is to get hyperactive while enjoying yourself. Watch my swagged is to check me out. The song is a party song

Your single Go Dumb Girl is getting radio play across California, what is next for you as far as performances goes? Any upcoming tours and/or collaborations with other artists?

I don't have any tours scheduled but as the single grows we plan to tour to all the markets that shows the single love and bring the party. We have a few select dates scheduled over the next couple weeks.

DJ King Assassin is the producer of the track and he is also featured on the track and he is dynamic with his sound and I thank him tremendously for the opportunity and the Liferdef family. He was Tupac's original producer and there are plans to do a Tupac collaboration. Also in the works is a collab with Kyle Rifkin who is part of Rob Base's group "The Incredibles." There is also talk that Rob Base will be part of the Go Dumb Girl (remix).

Hyphy music incorporates a lot of dance-do you dance in your performances?

I tear the stage up. I believe my show performances exceed my recordings. There is a difference when your in the booth recording and when you perform because you can improvise and give the people a show. You can get hyphy with the crowd's support and their energy.

You hosted your own TV show at the ripe age of 13, tell me about that-what was your show about?

It was a Christian kids talk show that focused on social issues with the youth and encouraged them to stay in school and basically follow rules. Again, my father who is minister encouraged me to start in show business at a early age. Both he and I continue performing to this day. His television ministry is doing well and he is my biggest supporter.

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite quote is Man Up Ni**a! My mother says that to encourage you to get it together!

What is something that no one knows about you that you wouldn't mind sharing with our readers? (any guilty pleasure of yours, for example, is there a TV show that no one would expect you to watch that you don't miss, or do you have a secret passion for Broadway Musical show tunes etc?)

My sister/mentor (Takith Johnson) who was a very talented gospel singer passed away from Lupus at an early age, and in her honor I plan to open a Lupus Foundation in her name. Also, I desire to build my father a bigger church for his ministry and I do have a passion for the Oprah show! That is a couple extra tidbits!

Who are you listening to right now on your ipod/mp3 player/cd player-what was the last song you listened to?

Me, I play my music whenever I can to get different ideas for my performances. The last song I listened to was "Rock With You" on repeat!

Ok Tequila! That's all the questions I have for now. I look forward to your future projects. Stay in touch with me and the rest of the Caught Magazine family!

Thank you and the Caught Magazine family for the love and support. I also want to thank my management staff for their love and support!

Tequila belong's to Oakland's finest Hip Hop and Rap Queens, ain't no doubt about that. Tequila was born in Berkeley California, raised in Oakland and currently lives in California's hotbed for Bay Area Rap, i.e. Vallejo/V-Town.
Tequila made her singing debut in her father’s church, the 37th Street Baptist Church in Oakland, CA. She hosted her own children’s TV talk-show on public access TV at the age of 13. With the success of her TV show and guest appearances in front of large church gatherings she honed her entertainment skills which created huge commotion. Tequila started rapping at the tender age of 14. As a matter of fact Hip Hop wasn’t allowed to be played in her house, so she had to sneak tapes in the house and listen in her room on her walkman. There she spent hours listening to many of Hip Hop’s legends, and started writing material of her own. She would actually bust over the beats to create her own unique style.

Tequila's debut album was independently released in 2005 and features an outstanding array of songs and guest artists (see album entry below). Especially on any Hip Hop and Rap album it is the mix of contributing singers that decides between top and flop. Tequila's album is an awesome debut indeed. Already the first track "Tequila", featuring the Soul of the Bay Mike Marshall (Timex Social Club) and Tequila on vocals, anticipates the quality to follow. Several of the songs describe the life in Oakland, the West Coast, the Hood - especially "Living In The Ghetto" has all it takes to become an anthem. Tequila also uses explicit lyrics but that's pretty normal if you are doing Rap & Hip Hop these days. Plus, Tequila manages to keep the sexual content at a minimum and her lyrics concentrate on real life issues.

There's a natural flow and rhythm to most of the songs and they are easy to enjoy. Highlights? Yes, there are two tracks that stand out, "JUMP" and "HOPE", being the last two tracks on the album. With "JUMP" Dwayne Thompson hits the vocals right where they belong and the message of the song is not only to jump once the music hits you ..."there is only one way to do it ... you gotta jump". This is true for many other situations in life as well. Just remember that Zora Neale Hurston's mother told her children to jump at de sun - they might not land on the sun, but at least they would get off the ground. Last but not least, the track "HOPE" has refreshing lyrics and the message comes across loud and clear. Several of the tracks on the CD underline that Tequila has all it takes for a big jump, i.e. to become one of the top stars in the bizz today and put San Francisco back on the musical map. Thus her debut album is highly recommended.

Tequila's talent is not unnoticed as she was a hit at the Bay Area Rap Summit, featured in magazines, and TV shows. Currently Tequila is working on the realease of her second CD in 2006. Some of the new tracks, "Time To Shine" & "Tha Glo", can be found on Tequila's website (link below). The track "T and T Blast" is a song Tequila did with Thaahum Keneteph (who is from Arizona) for a movie soundtrack. Let's hope that all these activities will pay off - Tequila deserves it!
