Female Artists Who Influenced Me
Common talks about the female artists that have inspired him and influenced his career.
- I wanna start before music saying that Dr. Maya Angelou was definitely an influence for me, because her writing, writing is what inspires me a lot. And then, I have to go to the soul era of music and say Minnie Riperton and Chaka Khan were inspirations and influences. And then, we get into hip hop with the female artists. I would say Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, then we get to Lauren Hill who was an incredible writer, and MC, and voice. So, those were some of the big influences if I would really think about female artists who have influenced me in the music that I do.
