Since her newest track “Ugly Delicious”, has been receiving such positive feedback, she briefly told us what inspires her creative process.

She uses music as a tool to be relatable to her listeners and she is often inspired by many different things.
“All my music, it’s a vibe that I woke up with and just wanted to get out. Every morning I write a song based off whatever tune I wake up with in my head. Ugly delicious was my raunchiness taking the front seat. I record at least once a week and so I’ll record listen to it for a week make changes as I see fit, run it by the team and if they like it, we record. It’s really just a repetitive process until I’m happy with the results. But this song was slam bam thank you mam, I had the right energy from the jump. I’m a very passionate and aggressive woman in everything I do, so add that with my weird accent and you get a gangtress sound, with a crazy mouth, not to mention my insane flows. So my sound is gangtress, and that’s across any genre I take on. Catch the vibe, it really depends on them. If it makes you wanna twerk, do it. If it makes you wanna kill it in the gym, dale! I’m all about raw energy and that’s what I want them to feel. I call it the KiKi effect, feel the KiKi Devii effect with me.”
As Kiki continues to chase her dreams, she remains true to who she is whils empowering over women and creatives to be the best they can be.
