Jahdira Atkins, better known as Billy B, is the newest female MC out of Brooklyn. While she is still the “new kid on the block,” Billy B has a couple notable projects under her belt. She was featured on 40Thousand’s Digital Cocaine mixtape, collaborated with Chicago’s Swagg Dinero and was featured on Loot Clothing’s street mixtape. This past August, Billy released her debut project, Buck 50.
Billy B releases her latest single produced by Kyle Justice. “Supa Fly” boasts a classic Missy Elliot sample over a bass-heavy production. Billy’s delivery and lyrical content have undeniably evolved over these past few years. Her growth and maturity are evident in her new found confidence on the mic. Billy B isn’t just “stunting” on her new record, she’s solidifying her validity in a male dominated industry.
The single also serves as the follow-up to her Skeme-assisted single, “Gettin Mine.” The video was premiered by Complex last October.
“It’s sexy, hardcore rap,” Billy B explains. “I owe my “rawness” to the streets of East New York and Flatbush. I’m that pretty girl from the hood who raps (good), you know?”
