Wawa Baby Is All About Female Empowerment With “Pu$$y Power” Peep the Music Video On Blurred Culture
LOS ANGELES, CA- Wawa Baby is a Los Angeles-based recording artist who graced out showcase stage at Madame Siam late last year. Last month, we noticed that she dropped a home-made music video for her track “Pu$$y Power”, a slow-rolling, hip-hop-infused jam. Even though she followed the drop of that video with another new track on June 25th titled “Talkin’ to Myself”, we still wanted to get her thoughts on “Pu$$y Power”.
We were able to check in with Wawa Baby recently, and she’s still grinding away. Peep it, and photos that we took of her when she performed for us, below!
Can you let me know how you are doing these days? How have you been handling everything that’s been going on? The pandemic. Quarantine. Protests.
Everything’s chill. It is what it is. I live in a van so not having a gym to shower was tough at first but I reached out to people and they’ve been letting me shower at there place. I’ve been protesting and I almost got shot, but I would fight for BLM, any day. It makes me upset that there are so many racist people out there.
Whoa. You almost got shot? When and how did that happen?
A month and a half ago, it was a rubber bullet. I saw a lot of people get hit though, they really got hurt. Hollywood Blvd.
That must have been a pretty intense experience. As a creative person, how does an experience like that impact the way you create? I have a couple of friends who have really struggled with depression and other stresses that seem to stifle their creativity. How about you? Have you been able to keep your creative mojo rolling?
I’ve got a lot of mental disorders but I don’t let that define me. I’m always creating. Every day, whether it’s a Photoshoot, drawing, writing, singing, or making TikToks. I’ve never struggled with creativity, well, sometimes. When I’m alone it can be difficult and especially with this heat it’s hard living in a van. But I always try to be with people, I’m not really alone, which is good, because when I’m alone I think about suicide. So I make sure I’m surrounded by somebody even if that someone isn’t good for me…better alive than dead.
For sure. Sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do these days to keep sane. Being told to isolate I’m sure can’t help the situation… So tell me a little about the track that you just dropped. “Pussy Power”. What it something you created before or after the Pandemic started?
Yes Pu$$y Power, was something I created before the pandemic. You gotta add the $$ sign in Pu$$y because it lets the universe know, money is coming my way, and everyone around me, that’s close to me. The song is about female empowerment, especially after a physical/verbal abusive relationship…relying on a man that could give you everything when in fact that’s gonna be false, you gotta have you’re own money and power. It’s also about my mental illness, moving around and trying to stay alive, thanking my grandma for a reason to live, and her not understanding me but still loving me for my female empowerment. @geohworks made the beat and I recorded it in my van.
What does the rest of this year look like for you in terms of music?
Working with producers and feeling the vibe with each other and making songs. I wish I knew what else to do or some more guidance but a lot of people don’t know because of the pandemic.
