Taylah P and Kelci are the Vistoso Bosses, a kinetic duo from Atlanta, GA that marry streetwise sass with an infectiously pop sensibility. "Vistoso" is a Spanish word that means gorgeous, and these young ladies are very easy on the eyes, but their spirit and music are just as appealing and attention-getting. The girls--who have been best friends since 'before birth'--sat down with HipHopBlog to offer a glimpse of who they are and where they intend to go.
What's been the most eye-opening aspect of your journey to stardom thus far?
This entire journey has been an amazing, learning adventure with more to come. Really realizing how blessed and how far we've come since we first started I guess we can say is the most eye opening! It still kinda hasn't hit us FULLY! When we meet people and they cry..it's amazing! Still VERY surreal. To be able to look back to where we started and see where we are and where we are going is amazing, but almost unbelievable! We always knew we would make it, but it all happened so fast. It's wonderful.
Do you think that fans/critics make too much of the perceived 'lack' of female MCs in hip-hop?
No we don't. We can definitely see why people would want more females. There are so Many talented women involved in music and we believe in the future their will be more in the forefront! Us included of course!
Describe the following female rappers and what they mean to you:
b.Salt N Pepa
All three of these are are so dope! Of course we have been listening to Lil Kim! Nicki is dope also! We actually get compared to Salt N Pepa! We had "Push It" as an intro for one of our shows!
They all pretty much paved the way for us being that we are female artists, so we have nothing but respect for each of them.
What do you hope your younger fans take away from your music?
Inspiration! We want it to make them feel something! Something great! Like they can relate to us even though we're older. Being able to make music for everyone is fun for us! That way we can touch everyone. We want to be able to move people. Also make people think. When we started we looked at music as our outlet to the world so we could talk and deliver a message through our music. Whether it's about girl issues, world issues, being boy crazy! Whatever! Everyone should feel like they have a song by us that is for them!
What's the next step for Vistoso Bosses?
