Last month, rapper Tasha-D performed at the Dublin House and I had the opportunity to interview her. Check out how she does it. How long have you been rapping? 15 years What area of the Bean do you represent? Dorchester, I represent Columbia Heights, fully! Any rap influences? Who do you admire? I admire anyone who keeps it real but as far as influences, the only person who influences me is my son. What are your goals as far as everything you want to accomplish with your talents? I own Full Spectrum Recordings. I'm the CEO/CFO/COO. (laughs) I intend to go as far as possible. I've been doing this for a long time. I've paid my dues and now it's time to reap my dues. Let's talk about your CD. I released Stormy Weatha in 2005. What are some of the collaborations you have been a part of? Average Party, Cool Jesus, Marco from Made Men. I also did something with Free. What producers do you work with? As far as my own projects and Full Spectrum Recordings, it's all me. I do my own beats, engineering, everything. Stormy Weatha was written, arranged and produced by me.
Have you done any recent shows? I had my record release party at Benzino's club Zino's in Miami on Memorial Day, and I performed with T.I. at Spring Fest on Aug. 1st. I have a mixtape, Big In The Streets, that will be dropping soon and some of the people on that are Amerie, Bobby Valentino and Tony Yayo.
Loyalty runs deep in the Dobson family tree. Tasha's aunt (Kimberly Caldwell Dobson) drove from Worcester to see her niece perform. With her is her sister, Vanessa Dobson, Tasha's other aunt. They sit proudly next to the CD's and personalized tee-shirts, brought to the Dublin House to be sold. Tasha's got her mind on her money and her money on her mind. And who can blame her? Kimberly Caldwell-Dobson says she helped raise Tasha and believes that Tasha got her love for music from her father, Johnny Bodley, who himself was an R&B singer/song writer, and plays the guitar and piano. Bodley, who sings and writes contemporary gospel is also the author of the best selling book "These eyes" ISBN# 1-59129-120-8 . Vanessa Dobson clears the way for any misconceptions that Tasha-D isn't real. "She's come a long way and she is very determined. There was a time when she lived in New York, trying to make it, and she had to live out of her truck. "Tasha-D is surrounded by a loyal circle of believers. There is nothing like having family at a show, supporting you and giving mad love. Tasha-D performed four songs from Stormy Weatha; Beanz, Stormy Weatha (the title track), Real and Gone in 90 Seconds. By the end of her performance, the circle of believers had grown to include, friends and new fans. I hope y'all enjoyed...see y'all next month.
Peace and Blessings

I don't know if you remember me, but
you came and spoke to my health class at Shelton in Tuscaloosa. I have one more semester of Nursing school at the University of AL. Actually, we're supposed to present a community resource project and I chose to do my presentation on WAAO. I thought about you and wanted to thank you for what you do and have done. I'm still trying to get by WAAO to volunteer. It's just so hard to find the time.

At least that is what my son said, my daughter is at work and I havent talked with her. But my son TRULY enjoyed you and I thank you for being a role model to a child of mine. May God''s Blessing Stay With You Always Sonya. These Eyes, the book is touching and saving young lives.

Hello, my name is Ruben Williams. Today you came to my school, Dora High, and I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your program to my fullest extent. You may even recall seeing me, I was sitting next to the kid who didn't raise his hand... lol. Well, I just wanted to say hello and wish the best to you. These Eyes is a great book.
