Interview With Rapper Reverie Love
Rip: What kind of music are you willing to listen to but could not for one reason or another take part in?
Reverie Love: I am willing to participate in any type of music that I listen to. I am not scared to branch out & do what I want to do artistically & I don't think anyone should be scared either.
Rip: Have you had to fight stereotyping in your career?
Reverie Love: Yes, I definitely face challenges when it comes to stereotypes, especially being a woman. A lot of people expect me to sleep with them to get something just because a lot of other women have slept with them to get on a line up or to get a collab, it's ridiculous. I also get judged before people hear me rap, they think I'm gonna suck or be "good for a girl" but the minute they hear me rap, everything changes & their faces light up.
Rip: Without naming names what is a pre-show ritual that you have seen others do that you have been like "why do they do that"?
Reverie Love: I've seen people get coked out of their minds before a show & then I will see them perform sober later. Some can rock fucked up, some can't. I guess the drug use is pretty much the craziest thing I've seen.
Rip: As of this writing you are about to do a tour in the American Mid-West. How and why did you pick the tour route you are doing?
Reverie: Lol, well now I am home, been home for a minute, but I thoroughly enjoyed the mid west & I can't wait to come back! Everyone was pretty chill & open to my music. It was awesome. Met some cool people.
Rip: What are your plans for after your eventual rest from this tour? Are you going on more tours or are you doing studio work?
Reverie Love: I am working on music videos right now, visual art & also maintaining my relevance on social media.
