Somerset rapper responds to nasty comments after first song goes viral Bath City News

A Somerset rapper who works three jobs to pay for studio time to record music has gone viral on Twitter.

Kellee Marie lives in Yeovil and works as a delivery driver for two restaurants as well as a caregiver at Somerset Care.

Kellee paid to record her first song ‘Go Hard Or Go Home’ earlier this year at Hot Money Studios in London, where powerful rappers Stormzy and Stefflon Don also recorded music.

Since the song’s release, a clip from Kellee’s music video made in March has gone viral on Twitter, garnering over 10,000 likes.

Kellee admitted that she received “mixed comments” on the song, with many Twitter users targeting her with “pretty nasty” comments.

She said, “I’m not going to let that bother me, because I love music and that’s what I want to do.

“Just because someone hates me online or tells me to stop, I won’t listen to them.” They got me noticed even more because they shared me.

Kellee also noted that much of the “backlash” came from men and male musicians.

She said: “I have the impression that they felt threatened. They saw a rapper from Somerset – there aren’t too many of us – so I thought they were saying ‘we can’t have her’.

“I just want to go on and prove that women can rap too.”

Kellee said she also received a lot of comments praising her music and decided to release a follow-up freestyle aimed at responding to the detractors.

Kellee described how juggling three jobs with a booming rap career has been a challenge because it’s hard to focus on music.

However, she noted that doing delivery leadership may be the best time to let writing ideas take shape.

She said: “I write a lot of my music when I drive while listening to music. It helps me think about writing, but there’s still a lot going on at the same time.

Kellee said she was inspired by British rapper Aitch as well as Kanye West, Cardi B and Iggy Azalea.

She said that she has always loved music and that she was passionate about writing and singing, but it was her friends’ passion for rap that led her to the genre.

She said: “A few years ago some of my friends were all listening to rap, writing bars and rapping. I started trying and fell in love with it. I have been working there ever since.

“I thought, why not save. I have only been writing for a few years.

“I was so nervous when I first went to the studio, but it went really well.

“I was very proud of myself to be in a studio for the first time and then the video was the first one I have ever done, but now that I have done it I know what I can improve next time around . “

Kellee said she is working on more music, which she hopes to release soon.
